Deborah Lippmann True Blood - Bad Things Mini Nail Lacquer Set

Earlier we looked at the first of the Deborah Lippmann True Blood nail sets, the duo that was designed for Sookie Stackhouse and contained a great neutral hue and a pretty shimmer top coat.  The second of the polish sets is much more dramatic and is more inspired by the vampires in the TV and book series and therefore contains the shades that would be worn at Fangtasia (the vampire bar in the series).  I love both of the sets and I already know that I now want to order both of them!

I still have only found these sets on the Nordstrom website so all of my information on the set and the color descriptions are from this website.  The Bad Things set contains three smaller-sized polishes,  a fact that makes me really excited.  Deborah Lippmann completely got it right here; the larger sized nail polishes are the more neutral hues that I would use all the time and the small sizes are the shades that I would only use a few times during the season.  I always go through my pale and neutral polishes very quickly and am always replacing these bottles, I just love how Deborah did the sizing of the shades as they are pretty much perfect for me!  I really want both of these sets now since I know that I will get tons of use from both of them all year long.

An overall product description, "HBO® and Deborah Lippmann introduce Bad Things, a trio of mini nail lacquers inspired by the award-winning series, True Blood®."  This nail polish set contains the following three shades...

- Bad Blood: a sheer black cherry, inspired by the ever-so-sultry Pam
- Strange Love: a vampy magenta, capturing the character of red-headed Jessica
- New Flesh: a Sookie-inspired, clean nude

Bad Blood is the shade that I am most excited about and not just because Pam is my favorite character in both the books and the TV series.  I love Lippmann's Just Walk Away Renee and this shade looks a sheer version of that super-pigmented red hue.  This is one of my favorite manicure and pedicure shades in the fall and winter and I would love to add another hue like this to my collection.  I actually wish that this shade would be available in the full size as I bet that I will really use it over the next few months!  Strange Love is a nice shade but I don't know how much use I will get from it, good thing that this is small size.  I know that I will New Flesh like crazy since I love Lippmann nude hues and this one looks like another great selection from this company.

I love both of the True Blood nail polish sets, everyone knows how much I love True Blood and will buy almost anything True Blood related.  It also helps when the True Blood products happen to be from one of my favorite companies and are products that I would buy anyway!
