Deborah Lippmann Spring 2013 Collection - Romantic Rapture
Romantic Rapture is the name of the new collection from this company and it contains three new shades that are all pastels. I haven't bought any pastels since last spring so it is high time that I add some more to my collection, I wear pastels all spring and then into the very beginning of summer. I find that pastels are the only way that I can bring somewhat non-traditional shades into a professional environment. Being an MBA student, I am very conscious of what I will and will not be able to wear to work in the coming years and while I love all kinds of polish colors, I always make that I have own at least six or seven that I can always wear in a conservative environment. Of course a pastel in a slightly off-kilter hue is much less noticeable than the same hue in a bright shade...
The shades in Romantic Rapture are...
- Moon Rendezvous - faded slate blue (shimmer)
- Groove is in the Heart - flamingo pink (cream)
- Careless Whisper - scintillating nude (shimmer)
Moon Rendezvous is my favorite of shades, it is a faded cornflower blue shade with a shimmer finish. Cornflower Blue was a favorite shade of mine when I used to color as a kid and this is the closest shade that I have ever seen to that beloved crayon shade. I want to order this shade as soon as I can and this is a great example of a non-traditional shade that could be worn in a conservative environment. Groove is in the Heart is a nice pink but I don't find it to be anything special. I know that I would wear and like this shade throughout the spring and summer but I will postpone my purchase on it until I look at the other collections and see if there is a pink that I fall madly in love with. Careless Whisper is another polish that I want to order right now, I loved pale nude hues and Deborah Lippmann does them better than any other line that I have ever tried.
I love these polishes from Deborah Lippmann and I am excited to see what else comes out this spring!
