Deborah Lippmann’s New Pastel Polishes


Rarely do nail polishes solicit adjectives like "mouth-watering," "scrumptious," or "delectable." And rarely do they make you actually, physically crave food. Yet here we find ourselves with 3 lbs worth of bulk pastel sucrose thanks to Deborah Lippmann and her new Spring Reveries line of polishes. Which, if the shade names are any indication (Blue Orchid, La Vie En Rose, Spring Buds, etc), are actually meant to evoke thoughts of pretty—and inedible—flowers. We'll chalk this up to a branding error on their part, and not a we're-always-hungry-and-impulsive error on ours.

They come in six shades, which we took the liberty of re-naming: Off-Brand Blueberry Sweet Tart, It Actually Tastes Better Than It Sounds Cantaloupe Milkshake, Those Melty Mint Candies You Only Eat At Easter, Expensive Organic Strawberry Gumdrop, Ladurée Pistachio Macaron, and Pretentious Farmers' Market Sweet Cream Butter.

    Wow, "Pretentious Farmer's Market Sweet Cream Butter" sounds right up my alley! I love your renames, and this post makes me want to add some Deborah Lippmanns to my polish collection.

      There's a Deborah Lippmann polish that I love, the actual name escapes me now, but in my mind it will always be 'Pink Iced Sprinkle Doughnut' because that is exactly what it looks like, it's so good.

        I think that one is called Candy Shop!

    I love when ITG does swatches, but it is so rare. You have some the best photos on the web. Please do it more often! :) I would love to see these on ITG contributors, perhaps with some beautiful jewelry, too.

    I have La Vie en Rose and it's beautiful. I love the subtle rose gold shimmer. I actually did a post about it earlier this week:

    Have a lovely weekend!

    it was indeed candy, Hard Candy, that made this pastel look popular nearly 20 years ago.
