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,
