NOTW: Deborah Lippmann "Ray Of Light"

Deborah Lippmann just released 2 flaky polishes, along with 3 multichromes and 3 magnetic polishes. This is pretty cool considering that most high-end department store brands don't do multi-dimension or effect polishes. I don't see your typical Nordstrom or Neiman Marcus shopper wearing a glitzy magnetic polish or a flaky, but that's just me.
This is one of the 2 flakies released. This was released on QVC (Or HSN?) and sold out FAST so I literally jumped to the Deborah Lippmann website and ordered it ASAP so I could get it before it sold out since it was limited edition.
It's an indigo jelly base with the red-green transitioning flakies. The formula is a little on the thicker side so you have to be patient with it, but it's not unbearable. The flakes are on the smaller side which make it look like burning embers in the indigo base. The flakes create a nice contrast because of the red-orange, to gold-green transition, and compliments the blue very nicely. 
Even though it's a jelly and has a tricky consistency, it is opaque in 2 coats. I used this over Nubar Foundation Base Coat and under Seche Vite. It does have a pretty glossy finish on it's own but I just used a top coat anyways.
I just checked and it's still in stock for $18 on the Deborah Lippmann website, which is now the only place you can purchase it.
