I have been on the prowl for an iridescent polish for a while now. After seeing a lot of American beauty brands producing them I had never found a UK available equivalent. After the Gareth Pugh x Mac shade that I was after sold out and wasn't really getting great reviews I didn't really have any high hopes. Then I spotted this Deborah Lippmann polish in 'Wicked Game'.
It's not quite an iridescent, more of a two tone between lilac and a mint/smudge green.
I've seen a few images of this shade online where the bottle looks very green, but mine appears much more of a lavender in real life.
Straight on, the nails appear an almost metallic lavender, and the green, murky-ish element shows up a lot more in movement. I like this shade as it reminds me of that gutter oil slick colour.
Deborah Lippmann is free from Formaldehyde, Toluene and Dibutyl Phthalate, with no animal testing.
