Deborah Lippmann 'Boom Boom Pow' Nail Polish - Swatches!

This beautiful Deborah Lippmann polish first appeared on my radar probably around Christmas (2010) on the Scrangie website, and I have lusted after it ever since. I finally got my hands on it yesterday when my friend picked it up for me (as my local House of Fraser store never seemed to have it in stock) and it’s well worth the £18 price tag (in my opinion) as it’s every bit as stunning as I hoped it would be... plus it says it contains real 24 carat gold, how extravagant!

The great thing about this is that you can layer it up and wear it alone (it took about 4 coats to look fairly ‘done’ and give the full sparkle effect) or you can use it over the top of other polishes to add a bit of sparkle to them too.

No Flash:

Here I have used it over the upcoming OPI polish ‘I Eat Mainly Lobster’ and it looks gorgeous, it has changed the base colour ever so slightly (it's a bit lighter & leans towards a gold-y coral) and it looks a little bit like a flakey polish in some areas (the smaller particles) which is just as lovely. 

The photo’s (all of them) don’t do it justice at all (I think because the camera picks up the individual particles too much, maybe), so I’ve done very short videos to show you a little bit more – I still don’t think they show it to be as beautiful as it is in ‘real life’ but you get the idea.

I can’t wait to wear this over a black or maybe a bronze-y brown in the autumn and winter months!!

What do you think?

Available at House of Fraser stores and online!
