Manicure Monday: Deborah Lippmann Blue Orchid


Hey everyone! Today's Manicure Monday is another color from the Deborah Lippmann Spring 2014 collection of lovely pastels. I'm sure I've mentioned this several times before, but I adore pastel nail polish. It's such an easy way to wear "crazy" colors while still looking feminine and chic and today's manicure is a perfect example of that. Blue Orchid is the perfect cornflower blue the welcome the fresh spring days to come.


One of the things I like best about this particular pale blue is that it's not too minty or turquoise like a lot of shades I already own. It runs much more neutral and not too bright. Also the wear has been really amazing, not having any chips until nearly an entire week after application.


Here I used a base of OPI Nail Envy, 2 coats of Blue Orchid, and Seche Vite Top Coat to seal it all in. The coverage was impressive and didn't need too much fussing to get good opacity.


Overall I absolutely am in love with this color and have gotten several compliments on it this week. For those of you looking for a true sky blue shade without any green tones in it, you won't be disappointed with Blue Orchid. You can find this available now at Nordstrom, Sephora, and Neiman Marcus for $18.

Readers, what do you think of light blue polish? What is your favorite blue? Let me know in the comments!

  1. Totally adore this polish! It looks really nice on your skin tone as well <3
    As for blues my favorite ones are mostly dark, navy blue polishes because I think they look the best with my skin color. I love pastels as well for the same reasons you've mentioned but they often tend to make my skin look dark in a weird way so I can't always wear them :(

  2. This blue is beautiful, and I like it so much since I'm in love with pastel colors, especially when vibrant. I'm currently wearing a vibrant peach color on my nails, and this looks like a perfect color for my next manicure! I really like your photos, by the way.

  3. This is such a pretty shade of blue! It really stands out against your skintone...in a good way! Unfortunately, pastel nail colors look terrible on my very yellow skintone! :(
