Manicure Monday: Deborah Lippmann Shake Your Money Maker

9:00 AM

Now that we are full swing into the holiday season, I've been fully consumed with surrounding myself with Christmas songs and festive decorations. Since I carry my nails around with me at all times (who doesn't?) it only seemed appropriate to deck them out in the holiday spirit as well, and Deborah Lippmann Shake Your Money Maker was just the color to do it! Holographic tinsel and evergreen that literally leaps off your hands in the prettiest way! Ugh, I can't even take how pretty it is.

Let's check it out below.

As I'd mentioned in previous Deborah Lippmann reviews, Shake Your Money Maker is a color that I've had my eye on for the longest time. There's just something about the gold-tinted holographic pieces that bounces light like nobody's business. So glad I finally got my hands on it because it definitely lives up to pics!

Compared to other Deborah Lippmann glitters I've tried, this one did have a sheerer greyish base so I needed 4 coats for complete nail coverage. Each coat dried quickly so it wasn't a huge pain waiting before applying the next layer. Here I used the Deborah Lippmann Gel Lab base & top coat combo with Shake Your Money Maker in between. I know what you are thinking: How the heck do you remove that gorgeous mess? Well don't you worry because I am planning on an easy tutorial very soon for how to do just that. ;)

As with most glitter polishes, it is seriously impossible to capture just how dynamic and incredible these look in real life. The rainbow reflections in this one are literally the most dramatic of any glitter polish I've ever tried! Woah nelly! I had to add this last pic to show, blurry-style, a glimpse of the insane glitter bomb, brain-frying magic.

Don't even try, glitter-wanna-be's. Deborah Lippmann just blew you out of the water.

Readers, how are you getting into the Christmas spirit? Are your nails holiday-trendy? Let me know in the comments!

  1. Can't wait for your tutorial on how to remove glitter nail polish! It's such a chore >.<"



    1. What I found to work well is soak individual cotton balls in nail polish removed and then apply it to each individual nail. Wrap it, and let it sit for a few minutes (watch tv in the meantime or try and text something sensible things with cotton fingers). After a few minutes, remove cotton balls and the polish will come off easily, including the glitter. Works for me every time.

  2. This is such a cute polish :D

  6. Hello Jen !
    I wanted to know how you remove your polish when there are a lot of big glitters like this. I always spend about 15 to 20 minutes to remove it. So difficult !

  7. I love the color combo of the glitters of this polish. How was the application? This looks like a glitter polish where you have to dab the polish so the glitter actually gets on the nail.

  8. What a fabulous color! I always love Deborah Lippmann glitters and she definitely doesn't disappoint with this one!

  9. Absolutely stunning colour! So gorgeous!

  14. I am relieved to see you had to use multiple coats of this particular shade. I thought it was just me! It is a bit more sheer than the other colors that I've tried :)

  15. I did love this when I got it to full coverage but it was quite sheer so it did take a few coats. If you could put the tutorial on how to take it off, that would be awesome! It was such a pain to take off :(

  16. I totally bought this after watching your video, now I'm impatiently waiting for it to arrive! :p
    After looking at your pics, I'm so impressed with how awesome your hands look! Are you able to do a video on how you take care of your hands and cuticles PLEASEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!
