I recently purchased my very first Deborah Lippmann nail polishes. I had been admiring them for ages but never pulled the trigger on buying one due to the price ($16-20 per bottle, depending on the formula). Since I have artificial nails, I only change my polish every 2 weeks, so I only use each polish I own maybe 5 times per year. However, my current obsession with glitter polishes pushed me off the Deborah Lippmann cliff and into sweet sweet paradise. One of the shades I purchased is Stairway to Heaven, which is one of the Holiday 2011 polishes. On the website it is described as “iridescent icicle” and the description couldn’t be more apt!
Stairway to Heaven is a clear base with square and hexagonal iridescent glitter. The glitter appears mostly pink and blue, but the iridescent quality of it makes the polish change and sparkle as the light hits it. I had an extremely difficult time photographing this polish, it’s definitely one that should be seen in person. The following photos show 1 heavy coat of Stairway to Heaven over Essie Absolutely Shore.
