Manicure Monday: Deborah Lippmann Stronger

9:00 AM

And now, introducing possibly my favorite glitter nail polish ever: Deborah Lippmann Stronger. Woweee, I only wish cameras had the capability to capture the amazing rainbow magic that is this nail polish! Stunning, reflective, eye-catching, and compliment-inducing. Mama likes!

Stronger is a deep blue-based polish with multi-chromal hexagonal glitter in red, gold-rainbow, blue, and silver. The shade was made in collaboration with Kelly Clarkson and is perfect for upcoming 4th of July fun.

Have I mentioned that Deborah Lippmann glitters are the best on the market because the glitter density is so high that you get full coverage in 3 coats? (If you are a glitter lover like me, you know that most glitters need a solid base coat or a million layers to get a full-on glitter look.)

I knew I wanted to do something special on my nails for Vidcon activities and I've got to say, this was one of the times I've gotten the most compliments on my nails in a single day. You know when you catch yourself zoning out and staring at your nails? Yeah. This polish does that.

Here I used OPI Nail Envy Base Coat, 3 layers of Stronger, and 2 Coats of Seche Vite to remove any bumpy feeling.

The only way I've found you can capture the true sense of the iridescence and living quality of Stronger in photos is with a partial blur. See how the far finger grabs onto the glints of rainbow magic? And how the closer ones look like marbles suspended in glass? Mind-meltingly awesome sparkly happiness!!! Thank you Kelly Clarkson for my ultimate happy nails!

If interested you can pick Stronger up for $18 in stores and from Sephora and Nordstrom online.
