deborah lippmann's Waking Up In Vegas was all the rage last year when Lady Gaga was photographed on the cover of Vanity Fair back in September 2010 wearing it. I'm pretty confused as to why it's a "putty-liscious grey" creme when I'd think "Waking Up In Vegas" would be a glitter bomb... then again I've never been to Vegas... That's my goal for my 30th birthday (which is coming up sooner than I'd like) and I REALLY want to go to CosmoProf America in July (also in Vegas)... anyway.
So I finally broke down and purchased this with a gift certificate that I had for Apothica. This polish sells for $16 a bottle. My bottle had a lot of yellow tone to it, as you can see in this bottle picture but on the nail it wasn't yellow, which was good. My polish tends to do a lot of sitting on table tops and acrylic racks so sometimes I'll see the polish needs to be gentle rolled to be mixed around.
I used a base coat of Seche Natural and just 1 coat of Waking up In Vegas. I topped it with Seche Vite
As you can see in the sun, the bottle still looks a bit yellowish grey but on the nails, it does look like putty. It also shows off my tons o'ridges. I normally buff my nails every few months but haven't in a while as you can tell.
I seem to get a bit of lobster hands with this color which surprised me but overall it's a great office appropriate shade. I'd probably want to either add a glitter top coat or Konad or something. ^_^
