Waking up in Vegas Nails Du Jour 12.7.10

I am sure everyone remembers this Lady Gaga cover of Vanity Fair. I was obsessing over her nail polish quite some time ago.




I found out it was Waking Up in Vegas by Deborah Lippmann. It had been out of stock for quite some time and when I heard they were having a 20% off sale and I saw this color was in stock I jumped at it right away! And I am SO glad I did!

I have not taken this color off in over a week and for me that is huge. I usually change my nail polish every 2 days! The color is captivating, its very neutral but there is a je ne sais quoi about it... its not quite grey and its definitley not taupe. It is a mix but more grey with a beige mixed in and creamy looking. Chin-chilly by Essie is close but darker and browner.

Let me tell you about the formula. Perfection! Creamy, One coat and completely opaque. Not streaky, not too thin and not too thick. I am in LOVE.



Excuse the grainy shot, I had my J.Crew fingerless gloves on and I was waiting for my elevator to come!

You can buy this polish here at Deborah Lippmann! I highly recommend you love a grey/ taupe color.

Will you pick up?

  9. Yaaaay, I found it at Nordy's. Can't wait to try it. I've bought like 6 greyish/taupish nail polishes and I haven't been all that crazy about any of them. I like that this is one is going to be lighter. (happy dance)
