Twinsie Tuesday: Deborah Lippmann I'm Not Innocent

We're keeping it simple for this week's Twinsie Tuesday with a minimalistic theme. To me, minimalistic means a palette-cleansing, blank canvas kind of shade, so I chose Deborah Lippmann I'm Not Innocent, a peachy nude creme.

This is apparently a more obscure Lippmann. I don't see it talked about a lot online. But it's a beautiful, clean nude that would look especially nice on tan skin. Even if you're not tan, the contrast helps create the appearance that you are!

While the color is lovely, the formula was not the greatest. It's thin and pretty streaky, leaving noticeable bald patches that you have to work to even out. It also doesn't self-level well, so by trying to cover the bald spots, you can inadvertently create lumps. Couple all those issues with the fact that my bottle of top coat is on its last legs and you get a total nail nightmare. So I'm really sorry if the application here doesn't look the best. I love the color, but hate the formula...

Who knew a minimalistic mani could be so difficult?! Hopefully my Twinsies had better luck!
