Deborah Lippmann Harlem Nocturne

I've had my eye on this one for a while, but I hardly ever buy Lippmann at full price if I can help it. So I waited patiently until this collection went on clearance at my local nail place and then snatched Harlem Nocturne up! This indigo chrome came out as part of last year's fall collection. I was drawn to it right away, as it's not too often we see this type of color in a chrome finish.

Formula-wise, Harlem Nocturne is pretty much your typical chrome. It'll amplify any little imperfections in your nails and you have to watch where and how you place your brushstrokes. The only way Harlem Nocturne differs is that a lot of chromes tend to be streaky or drag-y and this one is surprisingly smooth.

What is unique with this polish though is the color. It's a really lovely, deep blurple with a beautiful metallic sheen to it. I have a decent amount of chromes in my collection--in addition to wearing them alone, I love them as bases for glitter--but I don't have any in this type of shade!
