I think Deborah Lippman Hates Me!

Hey hey hey!

Today's mani uses two of the three polishes in the Deborah Lippmann True Blood set. I had ordered this off of HSN when it first became available and I HAD to have it, because well TRUE BLOOD! I love love love the series. I have all the books and all of Charlaine Harris' other novels. She is such a great writer.

The polishes in this set are minis so the price was reasonable $25. I am glad that I did NOT pay the regular $18 a bottle for Deborah Lippmann polishes. But we will get to that later. The three polishes in this set are Bad Blood a deep dark blood red jelly , Strange Love a magenta creme, and New Flesh a nude/skin tone creme.

I went for a nice french manicure using New Flesh and Strange Love. I absolutely LOVED how this turned out. However, this polish wore off like nobody's business. Seriously, I put this on Tuesday night and by the end of Wednesday it was already seriously wearing off. It didn't help that I had some sever Seche Vite shrinkage going on. But I put more Strange Love on the tips to combat that. Didn't help, not at all. I am so disappointed. I got so many compliments on this manicure too. I had such hopes for this since it was Deborah Lippmann. I assumed that since her polishes were so high end that they would wear like iron. Also, the polish on my thumb started coming off my thumb. You could see the line on my thumb where it was separating from the nail. So pardon my thumb, it's almost completely devoid of polish by now.

On to the pictures... (First two indoors, second do in sunlight)

This set and more of the Forsaken Collection are available on HSN.
