My Latest Mani: Deborah Lippmann I'm Not Edible from the Spring 2013 Staccato Collection

There are just those nail polishes that grab you. The ones that pull you in time and time again. The ones that, even if it's been years, you always return to with a smile and a sense that they've brought you home. That's how I feel about Deborah Lippmann I'm Not Edible.

This has long been one of my favorite polishes for the simple fact that, the more coats you use, the more the color builds upon itself. Each coat deepens to a richer shade of pink, and each one contains multiple flecks of black hexagonal glitter that settle upon the nail. The earlier coats of glitter take on a greyish tinge while the top coat remains black, giving the overall look a sprinkle-like effect that reminds me of candy. It also reminds me of this quote from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory:

"Everything inside is eatable. I mean edible. I mean, you can eat everything."

The original color was a brighter pink. I'm not sure if it's lightened over time (it was originally part of the Spring 2013 Staccato Collection), but I'm actually loving the paler shade of pink. I also continue to be impressed with how easily it applies! Each coat glides on smoothly with no streaking or dragging. This is two coats.

I can't imagine a time when this polish won't be ranked among my absolute favorites. Deborah knocked it out of the park back in 2013 (as she continues to do over and over), and I'm happy to say this will remain part of my stash for a long time to come!

Sadly, this color is no longer available. For other gorgeous Deborah Lippmann polishes, visit or
