#ManiMonday: Deborah Lippmann Call Me Irresponsible

Recently, one of my friends asked me about my favorite color. "It's purple, right?" she wondered. My first response to her was, "Absolutely not." Well, then I started thinking about it ... and you know what? I'm pretty sure purple IS my favorite color. Not only do I have purple office supplies (which I ordered from Poppin, THE coolest office supply site on the planet), but I tend to carry a lot of purple accessories (like my Hayden-Harnett wallet) and, of course, I wear a TON of purple nail polish. So I think my friend was right after all -- and my favorite color is purple! There was no better time to test this theory than by breaking out my bottle of Deborah Lippmann Call Me Irresponsible.

I really don't even remember when I bought this color -- I just know that I've had it forever, waiting and biding its time for the first time I used it. And here we are!

It's interesting to see how much different Call Me Irresponsible is on the nail than in the bottle.

Deborah Lippmann Call Me Irresponsible is a very interesting shade. In the bottle, it looks like a rich, deep violet creme. But once applied? It's a squishy grape jelly! I'm wearing two coats, which might not be enough since there's definitely still some patchiness. But I always feel like three coats, especially with a jelly finish, just become too difficult to apply without smudges.

I really didn't expect this color to be quite so different on the nails than in the bottle, and definitely didn't realize it would be a jelly instead of a creme, but I'm not complaining. I don't have anything else like this in my collection so it's a keeper!

What's on your nails right now? Let me know in the comments!

Deborah Lippmann Call Me Irresponsible retails for $18 at cobigelow.com.

  1. WOW, that is one incredible purple! I really love her polishes so much! She can do no wrong, in my view!

  2. So interesting that it look so creamy in the bottle but definitely jelly on your nails. Great color. I just applied a Zoya jelly and it took 3-4 coats to cover without patchiness. I didn't know that about jellies

  3. This is so different than the bottle. I'm not sure I love the color on nails like I do in the bottle.

  4. It definitely looks like a totally different color once applied, but still it's very pretty!

  5. It might be fun to make a jelly sandwich with this one, with glitter in the middle.

  6. That is such a gorgeous purple and I love purples. :) It's been over a year since I have gotten any polishes from DL but I'll check this one out.

  8. I love this squishy jelly purple. I don't mind minor irregularities in jellies, I think that they make them look like the yummy for which they are named, or beautiful, old coloured pressed glass. Either way, I'd wear this, in a heartbeat.

  9. This is a pretty jelly! I would try putting a layer of glitter polish between coats to help with patchiness but I love the shade. :)
