OK, so maybe the whole post is not going to be about Deborah Lippmann flakies. But we'll start with one, since I just saw recently on The Polishaholic that DL is selling one called Sweet Dreams on the Home Shopping Network. It's a pink jelly with flakies as in the polish. I think it looks pretty awesome, although I'm not sure if it's something that merits its high price tag. Check out swatches of it at this link.
In further Deborah Lippmann news, I was thrilled when I learned earlier in the week that Claire's has come up with a dupe of DL Candy Shop. I was even more thrilled when the Polish Amor blog posted amazing swatches of the dupe, creatively named Candy Shop, at this link.
Be on the lookout for SInful Colors Green Ocean, which should be hitting stores soon now that the Valentine's Day is over. A commenter on Nouveau Cheap blog already got hers as of a couple of days ago, so I'm sure they'll be rolling out soon. In case you're out of the loop, Green Ocean is a green hued flakie that I think is very similar to Zoya Opal. Check out G's swatches of Green Ocean at this link on the Nouveau Cheap blog. It's a seasonal polish that only comes out for St. Patricks Day. I'm curious to see if they roll out any new colors to accompany it. (I skipped Zoya Opal because Sinful Colors seems like a $2 version of the same flakie.)
I have another link from The Polishaholic to share with you. I have always been less than satisfied with the pictures of China Glaze Luxe and Lush that have appeared prior to now. I just couldn't tell if it was a flakie worth owning or not. Luckily, Jen has done an amazing job swatching Luxe and Lush over a variety of colors in this post. Previously, I was confused about whether or not I should own it because I didn't want to dupe a flakie I already have. Now I can see that it's slightly different from other flakies because it has a shard like, broken glass look that makes it unique. It kind of makes me think of of Color Club Covered in Diamonds combined with Essie Shine of the Times.
Finally, I'm going to apologize to you guys for any weird grammar going on in this post. I'm in Mexico and couldn't figure out where the apostrophe, dash, colon or quotes are on this keyboard! Plus, the spell check doesn't work because of the computer being programmed for Spanish. I'll be sure to correct things as soon as I can.
