Deborah Lippmann Dream Weaver

I've shared some polishes from Deborah Lippmann's New York Marquee Collection, but today I have a polish from her Fantastical Holiday 2014 Collection! Dream Weaver* ($22 @ Murale) is a real shade shifter - both in the bottle and on the nail. This polish was tricky to photograph, and unfortunately I wasn't able to capture the true essence of this polish on film.

Deborah Lippmann's Dream Weaver has a slightly sheer formula, so I did have to use three thin coats for an opaque finish. Even without a top coat, this polish dries to a very shiny, metallic finish. I would still recommend using a top coat though, just to enhance the wear time. Without top coat, I only got 2 days of wear before my polish started to chip. Dream Weaver has hints of purple, grey, green, and blue. I have to admit that I was really excited about this polish in the bottle, but the intricate colour dynamics didn't translate perfectly on the nails. I was really hoping that the blue and purple tones would show up stronger on the nails, but the grey and green tones are very prominent. Still pretty, but not what I was expecting!

Deborah Lippmann's polish bottles are so classy, I just love them! These bottles would definitely look great if you stored them on your vanity. The brushes on Deborah Lippmann's polishes are a bit thin, so you have to use a few more strokes per nail compared to a wider brush (think OPI's Pro-Wide brush), but you get a cleaner finish.

Overall, Deborah Lippmann's Dream Weaver is a pretty polish, but I'm not sure that it's worth the luxurious price tag. I think that there are other DL polishes that are more worthy of your $22. Have you checked out Deborah Lippmann's Fantastical Holiday 2014 Collection yet?
