Deborah Lippmann Ruby Red Slippers

Chunky hexagonal (hex) glitters are really popular this year, with collections like the OPI Muppets coming out, but one of the pioneers of the chunky hex trend is Deborah Lippmann. She is known for her glittery creations, like Bad Romance, Across The Universe and Glitter In The Air, and today’s polish is definitely one of the best she’s made.

Deborah Lippmann Ruby Red Slippers has lots and lots of both small and big red hex glitter in a black jelly base. If you’ve ever seen China Glaze Lubu Heels, this one is its fabulous bigger sister. This came out in 2009 for Deborah Lippmann’s 10 year anniversary.

This is two coats of RRS over a black creme. I’ve tried this on its own before, but in order to get it opaque, I needed a lot of coats, which made it too thick and chunky on the nail. While you lose some of the jelly squishiness by layering it, I think the smoother, thinner feeling on the nails makes up for it.

The glitter dries very gritty and meh without topcoat, so feed that sucker, baby! I thought it would eat up all of my topcoat, but a generous coat of Barielle Manicure Extender + Poshé on top made this into a very smooth and shiny mani.

I used to be a hex hater, and avoided all chunky glitter polishes like the plague. But as many times before, I’ve fallen again, and I’ve fallen hard. Now I want more glitters, and my biggest glitter lemmings right now are Lynnderella’s franken creations.

What do you think of chunky glitters, do you love them, hate them or are you still on the fence?

  1. Hehe, synes å huske at du ikke likte lynnderella sine lakker, ja. ;) Men de er utrolig nydelige alle sammen. Lippmann sine blekner i forhold. :)

    • Ja, sukk… Jeg har spist så mange kameler i forhold til ting jeg “ikke liker” at jeg har kamelhår i halsen. ;)
      Men Lynnderellaene er jo helt fantastiske (selv om jeg fortsatt ikke liker Connect the Dots)…

  2. Fnis, husker bare tråden fra MUA, du fikk litt pes der. Jeg har det litt enklere siden jeg stort sett liker alt. Men Lynderella-lakkene er de fineste lakkene jeg eier, uten tvil. :) Jeg vurderer å kjøpe back-ups.

  3. Det kan være, men buzzen rundt Lynnderella sine lakker var helt fortjent synes jeg. :)

  4. Hah, skal gi meg nå. Jeg er glad du skiftet mening. :) Og ikke dumt at det skjedde før de ble umulige å få tak i.

    • Nei, det hadde vært ekstra hjerteknusende. Heldigvis fins det snille amerikanske neglelakkdamer som vil hjelpe en stakkars utlending med å få satt pølsefingrene i disse godbitene! <3

  5. Ja, de er gode å ha! :)

  6. This looks hot! Love it.

  7. RRS ser otroligt vackert ut, men jag måste säga att jag hatar glitter som är svårt att få bort från naglarna :) Har några helt otroligt vackra glitter lack, men pga att de är så förbenat svåra att få bort från naglarna så har jag en hat/kärlek relation till dom :)

  8. This is one of my favorites of Deborah Lippmann’s glitter creations too! It’s so beautiful, and I think it looks great here over the black.
    I have been drooling over Lynderella’s glitters myself!

    • *whispers* I’m going to order some Lynnderellas on Friday! :D
      Haha, I was looking so much forward to it that I couldn’t sleep last night. Seriously! :D

  9. Jag gillar att göra “glittertippar” med det här lacket. Det är snyggt!
