My very first deborah lippmann lemming was this baby right here - Ruby Red Slippers. It's a black based polish with red glitter and hexagonal glitter. Now after seeing how many coats I used with Across the Universe, I decided to cheat this time.
I used a base coat of Seche Natural, then one coat of CND Blackjack and one coat of Ruby Red Slippers, topped with 2 coats of Seche Vite. Now I could have gotten away with one coat of Seche Vite but decided to use two because I wrapped the tips before my flight that day.
Doing this also helped with the removal process. Well, I also used pure acetone in my removal, which I hate doing, but made it so much easier.
This is a picture heavy post because I LOVED this polish. There was a nurse that was absolutely amazed that this was polish and not some "art stuff you get done at a salon." :)
LOVE this polish. Here's a shade picture too.
Oh and one final shot of the polish up close. YUM.
