Deborah Lippmann Single Ladies
Today's post is a Deborah Lippmann color that I have been loving recently. It's been my go-to dark but classic red for the last few months (it changes quite frequently though so stay tuned to see what I pick next lol) and I've just been loving it even though it's summer!
Deborah Lippmann's Single Ladies is an oxblood red creme. It's opaque in 3 coats and dries to a gorgeous glassy finish. It's most definitely a statement and power red, which is perfect for it's name (named after the fab Beyonce song).
You can purchase DL polishes on their website as well as at Nordstrom, Ulta, and now Sephora! They retail for about $16-$20 depending on the finish of the polishes. It's pricey but it's totally worth it :) By the way, if you use Ebates and shop at those stores through them, you'll get some cash back! It's normally what I do when I shop at Nordstrom, Ulta and Sephora online.
In terms of colors that are similar, a lot of brands make this sort of red, so it's not a super unique color to my collection. I happen to be somebody that loves red nail polish though, so I am happy to have a lot of options. I do like the subtle nuances in color between all the darker reds that I own, but in reality, just the average polish lover won't need as many reds as I have. An example of a polish that is basically the same color is OPI St. Petersburgundy.
This manicure was on my nails for a good 4 days before I added glitter. I used Deborah Lippmann's Gel Lab system as base and top coats.
What do you guys think? Do you love reds as much as I do?
