Happy Tuesday! Which for me means a new episode of Sons of Anarchy! Which is actually what prompted me to wear the polish I am showing you today! I always notice Gemma's nails and wonder what color she is wearing, they are always a nice dark vampy shade but not black. I think I found a good contender here!
Today's post is featuring Deborah Lippmann Dark Side of The Moon which is described as:
Absolutely Aubergine...Master the art of darkness with this intense eggplant shade that creates a stunning contrast on all skin tones.
Okay so some of you may know that I have never been a fan of dark vampy shades. I only wanted this one because I am a huge Pink Floyd fan. It is literally the only vampy creme that I have in my collection. But I absolutely LOVE it! I can't believe I didn't give these shades a chance before now! Just look!!
Shown is 3 coats of Dark Side of The Moon over Duri Rejuvacote and topped with HKG. This was opaque in 2 coats and could have been in 1 but I wanted it to be dark. I did 3 for good measure since my first coat was pretty thin. Application was amazing! I barely had to clean up it was so flawless! DL sure makes an amazing creme! This was also super shiny on it's own but I always use HKG so I don't dent my polish.
I actually kept this on my nails until yesterday! (I did them last Tuesday for SoA) I only had minor tip wear and had a chip or two but nothing major! I loved how this looked and really surprised myself! The last photo is the best representation or this color. Not brown at all. I will definitely be wearing this again!
What are your favorite vampy polishes? Have you ever tried a color that you didn't think you would like but ended up loving it?
