I am so excited to share these pictures with you all. As soon as I saw this collection I knew I needed to have it. Deborah Lippmann took the awesome Happy Birthday - and built on it! This has me thinking she needs a whole line of polishes like this with different colored bases - we need a blue one and green one and red one and purple one and . . . .etc!

All of these applied really nice. They are all shown with three coats, but really you could get away with 2 if you really took your time to apply them.

I love how the pink base is still clear enough to let the glitters shine through and it also creates a really nice layered look with the glitter too. This is awesome!

The over the hill version of Happy Birthday - lol, get it?? Anyway, this is the black version and it is really awesome too. This one applied really nice with 2 coats, better than Happy Birthday & Candy Shop. I love the look of dark and then bam - glittah in your face!

The one that started it all! What can be said about this, that hasn't allready been said? It's a party in a bottle! This one is great because you can layer it over other colors or wear it on it's own.

Oh my! Candy shop looks great! I want it now!
It's funny. I've got the impression you use a pink jelly and then a glitter layer on it! it looks great!

They actually look much better than I thought they would, but I think the collection is a bit....uninspired, I guess. I would have liked to see original glitters, instead of just Happy Birthday three ways.

I just collapsed after seeing those! After seeing the pink version, I'm getting two bottles of Happy Birthday and seeing if I can change the base colors with a little franken-magic. Curses! It's $42!
