Deborah Lippmann: Painted Desert Summer '15 Collection Swatches & Review

**Products Provided**
Hello everyone! A few weeks ago I received an epic nail mail. Unfortunately, I've had a few personal and technical problems, I just haven't had the time to showcase these beauties. So for today's post I have Deborah Lippmann's new summer collections inspired by her home state, Arizona.  As you can see it's not your typical shades for the summer, but it does have a safari-like feel to it.
 Even though this is the time everyone is seeing many brands with bright shades, it is wonderful to see something different this year. Of course looking at these may, remind you if similar shades from other brands, but by experience,  by no means they are definitely different. 
The collection consists of four full coverage earthy and neutral creme's shades. Each shade is described to "reflects the desert's remarkable beauty and rich, earthy landscape." 
 
Shifting Sands- is described as a light khaki creme, which was previewed at Eva Fhran's S/S 2015 NFW presentation. This is a a gorgeous light nude shade, even though this is one color seen in many different brands, I for one, haven't had one with a good formula base. This is two coats, sealed with top coat. 
A few weeks ago, I saw a really cute nail design by one of my favorite french bloggers, Mary Monkett. It was design by a different color, but I truly wanted to try it out by using one Deborah Lippmann's newest shades. I can honestly say these are s much better freehand, than those snap-tats I've seen on instagram...don't you think?!
Love In Dunes- is a beautiful purple mauve creme, and one of my favorites. The formula on this shade is super smooth and easy to apply. You can definitely can get away with one coat, as it is fully opaque. This is two coats, sealed with top coat.
Desert Moon- is a pebble gray, closely to a green (in my opinion). This is one shade I never expected to like or even have in my nail polish stash. The formula as smooth an very easy to apply. This is two coats, sealed with tip coat.
Terra Nova-
is a warm camel, which was previewed at Narcisco Rodriguez S/S 2015 runway  show. The formula on this shade is super smooth and easy to apply. You can definitely can get away with one coat, as it is fully opaque. This is two coats, sealed with top coat.
 
This is one color that represents to me of a safari. Which I was inspired by, creating some animal prints using black acrylic paint.
Overall all four shades are absolutely beautiful and different from each other. Each colors are unique on their own. The summer collection are now available and retail $18.00 each at www.deborahlippmann.com and at Barneys New YorkBloomingdale's, Neiman MarcusNordstrom, and Sephora stores.
