Deborah Lippmann 80’s Rewind Summer 2014 Collection Swatches, Review & Giveaway

by Lisa Heath

Press Sample

I know it’s nearing the end of Summer and some Fall collections have been creeping in, but I have a fabulous Summer set to share with you.  The Deborah Lippmann 80’s Rewind Collection!

I was born in the early 80’s, so a lot of these songs I didn’t come to love and appreciate until they were considered “classics” when I was in high school.  A few of these songs can be heard in the car, being belted out by my son and I while we drive an hour to his school in the morning.

Let’s kick this off with my son’s favorite…

Don’t Stop Believin’

Don't Stop Believin

Don’t Stop Believin is an amazingly bright red-orange creme.  I used 2 coats for these photos and a glossy top coat.  This one just has that juicy jelly look while having the amazing opacity of a creme.

Maniac is a grape purple creme.  I used 2 coats for these photos.

Maniac CU

She Drives Me Crazy

She Drives Me Crazy

She Drives Me Crazy is a teal creme that heavily leans green.  I used 2 coats for these photos, and I didn’t experience any staining with this shade.

Walking On Sunshine

Walking On Sunshine

Walking On Sunshine is a bright, sunny, yellow creme.  This was the only one of the 6 shades that I needed to use 3 coats on.  The first 2 coats had some streaking but the third leveled it all out nicely.

Whip It

Whip It

Whip It is a cool toned pink crelly shade that is so juicy looking.  I used 2 coats for these photos.

Video Killed The Radio Star

Video Killed The Radio Star

To me, this is the perfect blue creme.  Video Killed The Radio Star (and that song has been stuck in my head since I read the label) is a mid tone blue that is just on the line of being perfectly in between ‘bright’ and ‘dull’.  Hard to explain and I hope that made sense!  I used 2 perfect coats for these photos.

Video Killed The Radio Star CU


Whether you were an 80’s child or not, these songs are amazing and I was getting lyrics stuck in my head left and right as I was putting each color on.  Application was perfect on each one and they only needed 2 coats, except Walking On Sunshine which required 3.

While these may not seem like the most unique of shades, they are perfect for capturing the 80’s retro feel, and with a perfect formula, they are worth a little splurge.

Price: $18.00 Each

Where To Buy: Deborah Lippmann Website, Nordstroms, Neiman Marcus, Sephora and ULTA

Hi, How are you Today? I Hope you are Well! I have Never Tried Deborah Lippmann Polish before, not b/c I haven’t Wanted to but b/c I Can’t Afford to! I used to get my Nails Done on a Regular Basis when I worked at the Spa; I’m an Esthetician! I had to Quit Working b/c of Bad Neck Pain & Headaches Stemming from a Motorcycle Wreck! I also had to Move Back in with my Parents, at 33 yrs Old! It’s Really Hard Not Having My Independence & My Income; it’s Extremely Hard having to Rely on Others! I Got a Discount on Products at the Spa so Luckily I had Some Product Put Back & Now I am Glad I had it! My Parents are Paying my Medical Bills since I don’t have Insurance! I Can Not Ask them to do Anymore than they are Already Doing! I Don’t Mind doing my Own Pedicures with Nail Polish from the Dollar Store or Putting on Make Up that My Mom gave Me but I just Hate being Dependent on Others! I am Just Grateful & Truly Blessed but I will Always Love My Beauty Products & Make Up! Every Girl Wants to Feel Pretty and I don’t Mind Not Having the Best Products but Every Now & then it Would be Nice to have Something Luxurious! I Have Always Heard Great Stuff about Deborah Lippmann Nail Products so I would Love to One Day Try them for Myself! I Think All of these Shades are Just Beautiful but there are Two that I Really Stood Out to me and those were “Whip It” & “Walking On Sunshine” I have Always Loved Bright Colors or Glitter; it Just Makes me Happy & Cheerful! Thank You for this Chance & Have a Blessed Day! Jana
