NOTD: Deborah Lippmann Dark Side of The Moon

Hello lovelies!

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?

  1. These are gorgeous swatches of this color! My favorite vampy color is China Glaze Evening Seduction. And for me, it used to be pink polishes. I would always avoid buying pink polishes but I like using them now. ^^

    1. Thanks Tyeisha! I will have to check out that CG! I use to be the same way with pink polishes too and with blue (other than minty or seafoamy shades) but now I love them! I am still picky when it comes to pink though!
