Deborah Lippmann Glitter in the Air
Here is my easter manicure. Tonight I'm invited to dine with my mother, just the two of us. It is a great treat, to sit down us two grown ups without any kids to care for and just enjoy eachothers company.
At first I really didn't understand why this polish felt like just the right choice for easter. Then it dawned on me. One of the obvious symbols of easter is eggs. This polish is like a very delicate wild bird egg shell. Beautifully light blue, flecked with dreamy glittery spots.
I bet it's no ordinary wild bird either. I think this is the color of the shell of the Phoenix bird egg, lying on a bed of ash, waiting to be reborn..
This is four coats of Glitter in the Air, over my usual Nubar Foundation base coat. One coat of SW. I don't think this polish ever is going to be opaque, but I don't care. I love the delicate sheerness of Glitter in the Air.
Happy Easter everybody!
