This gorgeous new color from Deborah Lippmann is great. It looks like it might be solid gold, but it isn't; it's mostly clear, but with a very slight gold tint and amazing gold glitter. The glitter is unstructured (like "Happy Birthday")--so it's chunky, of different sizes, and very subtle and classy. The glitter is classy enough that it could be worn by anyone at anytime, even to a formal affair--it's not like a teen product or blingy at all. To make it more intense, you just use another coat. I like it both ways--subtle and intense--depending upon my mood and my activities.
For every day wear: I wear two coats of Deborah Lippman Base Coat Ridge Filler as a base coat, followed by a base color of some type, and topped by "Boom Boom Pow" for sparkle, then Deborah Lippmann "Hard Rock" or "Addicted to Speed" as a top coat. These are all pricey and admittedly these are a lot of products, but they result in an incredibly beautiful and long-lasting polish that I get compliments on all the time. It lasts for about ten days. I do refresh with a top coat as needed because I do a lot of things with my hands. My nails are hard, strong, and beautiful with Deborah Lippmann products. I don't know of any that are better.
