Hello lovelies & happy Sunday & happy May 1st! Can you believe it? Summer really is almost here.
Today I thought I’d show off a Springy & pretty pink shade for this week’s Swatch Sunday post, which is by Deborah Lippman: Groove is in the Heart. I feel like pink is not one of those shades that I wear a whole lot, but when looking through my pick this week, it caught my eye, & I had to show it off.
2 coats, no top coat.
You’re looking at two coats of polish for full coverage. In the bottle, the shade has a pretty shimmer, but on the nail, it gets hidden, & comes across looking more cream. The colour itself leans a bit peach to me, which I think compliments by skin tone quite nicely. It’s a very unassuming colour, which means it would be suitable for a variety of occasions.
The formula wasn’t too difficult to work with, but did require a careful hands just to make sure the polish went on level. I feel like this could easily be solved by the application of a top coat which always smoothes things out nicely.
I am still bummed about the shimmer though — that’s one of the reasons I picked this polish to wear, but it didn’t show up on the nail at all.
All in all, I think this is a very pretty shade. Even though I own a ton of it, I’m not usually a pink nail polish on its own kind of girl. This is definitely a shade I think would be awesome on my toes, especially with a bit of a tan. & I could definitely see myself using it as a base for an assortment of nail art!
What do you think about this polish pick? Do you have Deborah Lippman Groove is in the Heart in your polish collection? I tried to find this shade online, but being a released from Spring 2013, I don’t think it’s still available, with the exception of an Ebay listing I saw.
