Twinsie Tuesday: Deborah Lippmann Blinded By The Light

I'll admit I was kind of at a loss as to what to do for this week's theme: inspired by a song. So I decided to borrow some inspiration from Deborah Lippmann, who names virtually all of her polishes after songs. This one is named after an all-time classic, to boot: "Blinded By The Light." Although it was originally written and recorded by none other than Bruce Springsteen, it wasn't until Manfred Mann's Earth Band covered the song that it became a hit.

With a name like Blinded By The Light, you better be packin' some serious sparkle and this polish doesn't disappoint! It's a brilliant explosion of silver holo that glints like a diamond.

You could layer Blinded By The Light over just about any base color, but I'm a sucker for blinged out nails so I chose to sport it all on its own. To do that, the dabble method of application works best. Thankfully the consistency on this polish is pretty workable so it wasn't that hard to build up opacity like some of these crazy dense glitterbombs. This is three coats.

It's been a while since we've seen some new glitters from DL and that is no bueno! I have a hard time paying Lippmann prices for cremes but I'll pay out for unique-looking glitters. Blinded By The Light was part of one of my all-time favorite Lippmann releases, the Starlight minis collection from a few holidays ago. You can still find it floating around on Ebay and I highly recommend it if you love some seriously intense, dense glitters. The whole set is absolutely gorgeous!

  1. This is absolutely gorgeous!

  2. Wow that is so pretty! I don't think I've seen this polish before. I agree with you on the cremes, I'd rather pay for an interesting glitter than a regular creme that's easy to dupe.

  3. Definitely blinded! Deborah Lippmann does some gorgeous song inspired polishes.

  4. Totally forgot about the DL song thing!

  5. Wow, clever to remember about Deborah Lippmann and her naming her polishes after songs! That is a seriously beautiful polish! Thanks for the wonderful review of it and the photos. (and for the earworm! LOL)
