|Holographic shimmer galore in Deborah Lippmann Dirty Little Secret.|
I mean, come on. Just look at that holographic shimmer. How could I NOT fall instantly in love? I'm a sucker for anything shimmery, especially holographic nail colors, so this was an instant win before I even bought it. Team that with a pale greige and, well, I'm sold. This color is pretty spectacular -- it glimmers, it sparkles, it shines, and somehow it's still understated enough to wear during the day or overstated enough to wear out for the evening.
The nail polishes in the Deborah Lippmann Gel Lab Pro collection are formulated with 10 active ingredients to deliver the gloss and cushion of a gel manicure without the damage. You'll find the following ingredients in each bottle...
Evening Primrose: This omega-6 fatty acid helps reduce moisture loss
Biotin: A B vitamin that helps stimulate keratin production
Keratin: A protein and the main building block of nails
Nonychosine F: This supports strength and resilience to fortify brittle nails
Green Tea Extract: This antioxidant protects nails from damage by free radicals
Aucoumea: This sap from a tree native to west Africa keeps ridges at bay
Platinum Powder: This finely milled precious metal resists wear
Epoxy Resin: This mesh-like coating fuses with polish to bind the layers together
Silk Fibers: They create a smooth finish by evening out the nail plate
Plexi Glass: This acts as an alternative to real glass

And get this. Deb has reworked the brush as well, creating an innovative contour brush with a whopping 320 bristles! Even before finding out that the brush was a new design, I could tell that the curved, slightly oversized silhouette was really gripping my nails and applying polish evenly to the entire surface while somehow staying off my cuticles and fingers. The rounded brush follows the nail shape perfectly.

I found that two coats yielded perfect, even color with no streaks or patchy spots. I'm also already on day 3 of this manicure with NO CHIPS. I'm not even wearing my typical base and top coat! I'm pretty amazed at how well this polish is holding up.
My dirty little secret? I'll be wearing this polish EVERYWHERE.
