Deborah Lippmann’s Here For The Party
If imitation is the highest form of flattery, then Deborah Lippmann should consider herself flattered. After releasing her Happy Birthday polish for the holidays in limited quantities two years ago, Lippmann realized she had a hit on her hands fairly quickly: The rainbow glitter lacquer set in a clear base sold out almost immediately. Even during subsequent reissues, it was near impossible to get your hands on a bottle. The varnish inspired a host of similar sparkly polishes and is now part of her permanent line—not to mention the permanent lines of countless other brands (new offerings from Revlon and OPI look strikingly similar to the Lippmann original). To commemorate what was, by all accounts, an industry-revolutionizing debut, Lippmann is paying homage to Happy Birthday by releasing two new shades in its likeness. Candy Shop puts the same explosion of red, green, yellow, blue, aqua, and silver flecks in a bubblegum pink base, while Forget You features a sheer black backdrop. The trio has been packaged together in Lippmann’s new Get This Party Started set, which means tracking each one down just got way easier—while supplies last, of course.
