Deborah Lippmann Sweet Dreams - Swatches and Review

Pin It

The moment I saw Deborah Lippmann Sweet Dreams on Jen of The PolishAholic I knew I had to have it!  Especially when she said those magic words, "FREE SHIPPING."  I jumped on the HSN website and placed my order on the night of the 16th... and I received it on the 21st, which isn't too bad considering the holiday weekend!  It was my first purchase from HSN, but I do not think it will be my last.

So back to the polish!  Sweet Dreams is a gorgeous fuchsia jelly packed tight with mylar flakies.  You know a pink polish has to be very special for me to buy it - and this one is!  As Jen described, it was a little gooey coming out of the bottle, but actually applied very nicely.  As you can tell from the pictures above, the color shift of the flakies is easier to see on a cloudy day.  It's also very apparent inside under artificial lighting.  I love polishes like this on a rainy day - so much fun to look at!

I love Deborah Lippmann polishes.  I don't buy every single one that comes out, but I think this one was well worth the $16!  I usually buy my Lippmann's from Beauty.com, so I checked to see if it was available there... it was, but for $18!  $2 more!  I also recently discovered that Von Maur (a small Nordstrom-like department store in the Midwest) carries Deborah Lippmann now too, although I didn't check to see if they had this shade yet.
