Glitter Polishes, 2.0


Deborah Lippmann is nothing if not an innovator. The nail guru is the brains behind the oft-imitated chunky-glitter polish movement, which started backstage with custom blends for designers like Rodarte and Donna Karan. But while loading lacquers with different sized sequins for a layered, texturized finish continues to motivate big-name brands, Lippmann has moved on to bigger things. “It’s a step away from my signature glitter,” she says of her new 3-D Holographic formula, which boasts “an edgier feel” thanks to sparkles that are much more streamlined and condensed. Available in Ray of Light, a bright indigo, and Sweet Dreams, a candied pink, both work alone or layered with basic crème colors for an almost iridescent finish. Two coats should provide the jealousy-provoking spring manicure you’ve been looking for—and inspire a long list of imitators.
