Lippmann Collection Party Like a Rockstar: Encore! Encore!

Published in: Nails, Product Reviews

It’s true — Lippmann Collection’s limited edition Party Like a Rockstar nail kit ($24) won’t get you on the VIP guest list for the MTV VMA after party, but who cares? Your nails will look hot!



The kit comes with three .6-oz. mini bottles of Lippmann Collection polish in a cute plastic carrying pouch of shiny faux snakeskin. It’s very disco ball and should make a really eye-catching gift.

Devil in a Blue Dress: a creamy midnight blue

This creamy, inky blue looks almost black in some lighting. I didn’t expect to like Devil in a Blue Dress, but once I put her on she became my favorite of the three shades. I don’t have anything else like it in my nail polish stash. Love this!

Good Girl Gone Bad: a shimmery dark plum

Good Girl Gone Bad wields lots of silver and shimmery plum, but despite the shimmer it’s not gritty at all. The plum reminds me of some of the deep purple shades released earlier this year, like Sally Hansen’s Alchemy and Dior’s Vernis Nail Enamel in Liquorice, but the shimmery silver is what really sets it apart.

Addicted to Speed: a clear, quick drying top coat

I’ve used Addicted to Speed in the past and remember liking it then. It was released before this kit. She’s a shiny, long wearing, durable top coat comparable to — the mother of all nail polish top coats — Seche Vite Fast Dry Top Coat.

Happy Holidays… to You!

Yup, you could give this kit away as a gift to a friend, and they’d probably love you for it, but if you’ve been wanting to try Lippmann polishes but haven’t yet, you might want to treat yourself. And, if you’re the kind of gal (like me) who rarely ever finishes a full-size bottle of polish, these mini-bottles, with their flashy carrying case, work out to a pretty good deal.

Party Your Body

I wrote this post listening to songs on my iPod with the word “party” in them. The first one that came up was Party Your Body by 80′s icon Stevie B. I love how half of his notes are just slightly off key, LOL!

A little back story: my youth was all about acid washed jeans, big hair and, sadly, tons of really cheese-tacular hip hop and R&B … hence my fondness for questionable 1980s music. :)

A show of hands, please, if you ever rocked out to this song. I know there must be one of you out there! I hope…

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

Karen

    I love navy blue polish. I’m wearing some right now, actually. These colors are alright, but I’m not completely loving them. I feel like they’ve been done before, a lot.

    I love the 80′s pic of you. Completely awesome :D

  2. Karen says:

    Hi Brittany,

    LOL, unfortunately there’s plenty more where that came from. There’s the “band uniform” series, the “acid washed jeans” series, the “big hair” series… yup. Those were some rough times.

    Hope you’re having a good day. We’re SO CLOSE to Friday!

    LOL! I had that same jacket only in black and red houndstooth instead of black and white!

  4. Karen says:

    Hi Glosslizard,

    LOL, if we went to school together then we’d have to get a bunch of other girls with the *same* jacket and then we’d take pictures together at the school dance. So cheesy!

    Hey Karen,

    I have really been feeling dark blue polish lately. It started with Opening Night by OPI for Sephora (which I have yet to find). On recent trip to Target, I bought the last bottle of Midnight Madness by Nicole, which I took to the nail shop with me today. The Lippma colors are ok, but I would like Good Girl Gone Bad for my toes.

    My 80′s style consisted of stirrup pants and big sweaters. I was hot!!

  6. Karen says:

    Hi Tami,

    I dunno why it’s taken me so long to get on the dark blue polish train! I like it… I’ll have to look for that Nicole shade. :)

    LOL, I so rocked that circa 1989. I remember I had this big purple Esprit sweater that was my favorite.

    Did you layer two different colored socks?

  7. Tami says:

    I didn’t care for blue polish at first, but it just seems so edgy.

    I didn’t layer socks but I did have the slouchy ones :-)

  8. Karen says:

    Yeah, I had those, too — we’d put one color on top on the other and then scrunch them down!

  9. KatieC says:

    Love that picture of you! Adorable and you rocked the blazer! LOL.

  10. Glosslizard says:

    Hey, ya gotta be cheesy in High School, otherwise you never get it out of your system! ;)

  11. yadiq says:

    Wow I remember my corky days like that LOL I so don’t want to relive those days LOL
    I am really feeling these polishes I am so gonna get em I am really feeling good girl gone bad even if I am anti plum LOL I just got home from bumble and bumble getting my hair cut I feel like a new woman I also stocked up on my curl concious since I was running low on curl cream and shampoo and conditioner but I also picked up the curl foam and the reactivating spray fingers crossed my stylist hooked me up in how to use them and how much product to optimize the benefits we will see if it works NYC is supposed to get some rain that will be the true product test for this curly mane

  12. Karen says:

    Hi KatieC,

    LOL, thanks! That was one of my prized fashion-forward possessions back in the day. ;)

  13. Karen says:

    Hi Glosslizard,

    I don’t think I ever quite got it out of my system. I fear this cheese is a permanent state of being! LOLOL!

  14. Karen says:

    Hi YadiQ,

    I’m jealous that you got your hair cut. I need a major hacking ASAP. Speaking of Bumble I am currently testing the Curl Conscious Shampoo and Conditioner and I’m really loving it so far. It smells good and in the morning Le Birds Nest isn’t as crazy as it usually is. In face, I work up this morning and it looked almost decent! :)

    The 80s and early 90s were rough times. Hair wings were just so terrible. I am also guilty of rocking the Debbie Gibson bangs, which looked like a cresting waterfall of hair. LOLOLOL!

  15. Lehea says:

    Hello!!! That kit is calling me out. Where did you get it from? The polishes and the case are cute…..totally, Dude. Haha! I never knew the name of that Stevie B. song, but I do remember hearing it alot when I’d visit my cousins over the summer. If I could be trapped in any decade, I’d definitely choose the 80s.

  16. yadiq says:

    girl i have been using curl concious shampoo and conditioner since the lines inception

    i am a little upset that they changed the formula to be for all curls though they used to have 2 formulas 1 for coarse/thick like mine and one for fine to medium

    i am also not loving their paisley pattern i think they make the product look cheap and its nowhere near cheap – the original packaging and design to me held the integrity of the salon / brand ( sorry random packaging design rant lol)

    i love my stylist – i need to see him every 6 months or else i get triangle syndrome ( thats what i call it lol) when my layers grow out and my curls get weighted at the roots and dont lift but mid- end its really poofy

    my current style is embracing the nest lol mad scientist style lol i am so tired about fighting against nature

  17. Kerry says:

    I don’t know if I missed it but where can we get them?

  18. Glosslizard says:

    Yeah, but look at your pictures now! That’s some classy cheese! ;)

  19. Glosslizard says:

    Hi YadiQ!

    OMG! “Triangle Syndrome”! That so nails it!!! :D

  20. Veronica says:

    Have you guys tried Russian Navy by OPI??? Best looking shade ever, and of course, it does look like it’s black in some lights but damn. It’s sexy. I love it.
