Good morning! Hope you all had a good Valentines Day! Today I have a brand new Deborah Lippmann polish to show you guys! My eyeballs practically popped out of my head when I saw this on the HSN website the other day...flakies! Be still my flakie loving heart! I thought maybe the bottle picture was deceiving but I bought it anyway, then I got it in the mail and it's even better in real life!
Sweet Dreams is a medium pink jelly base packed with golden flakies. In the bottle the flakies have a green shift but it doesn't translate onto the nail. This kind of reminds me of China Glaze Strawberry Fields...obviously they are very different but it has that same kind of golden lit from within look to it. It also reminds me a lot of Hits Salsa. I haven't had a chance to put those 2 side by side but they look close, Sweet Dreams might just be a bit brighter of a pink and the flakies are a lot more dense in Sweet Dreams. Formula wise this was verging on glue territory...I'm guessing it's because of how dense the flakies are. Despite that it wasn't actually too difficult to apply, I will be thinning it before using it again though. This was also more opaque than I was expecting, I thought I'd need 3 coats but I only ended up needing 2! Both photos below are in the shade, it's gorgeous in the sun also but it was making my camera spaz out :(
I picked up Sweet Dreams from HSN.com for $16...and it came with free shipping! By the way, the shipping from HSN was lightning fast, I bought this on Saturday and got it on Tuesday! It looks like this shade is also available on Beauty.com...but it's $18 there! I have no idea when it will be available elsewhere, I would hope soon since it looks like it would be one of Deborah's Spring/Summer shades!
