Normally I'm a huge fan of Deborah Lippmann's nail polishes... Glitter in the Air was a huge disappointment for me.
I used 3 coats in the swatch photos =\ Sad face isn't for three coats... it's for how crappy it looks even after 3 coats.
I tried to "place" the glitter on the second finger from the right, which gave me a little more than just brushing it on did.
I actually feel bad this is the first
that I've reviewed on here and it's not a glowing one. A lot of hype surrounded
Glitter in the Air
... how unique it is, how hard it is to find... how it looks so great on top of nude shades. I've actually tried it on top of several nude shades and it's just.. not doing it for me.
It doesn't apply very evenly, and the more coats you do the more oddly it lays. It's SO gorgeous in the bottle... it's a shame that isn't the actual color you get on your nails. Rather than being sheer and milky I'd love the base color to be opaque. The sparkles are just so beyond gorgeous that it makes me really sad that this just doesn't work for me.
There have been mixed blogger reactions - All Lacquered Up will be SHARING hers, making it a non-keeper, while Scrangie adores hers. It was actually Scrangie's post that got my lemming going for this one. All You Desire and the Swatchaholic also enjoy this polish. Unfortunately... you can add me into the "no bueno" side. Glitter in the Air doesn't hold a candle to her other glitters, which are awesome.
Retail on Lippmann polishes range from $16-$20... Glitter in the Air will run you $18. These polishes can be picked up at Nordstrom and beauty.com.
