Deborah Lippmann Ray of Light and Sweet Dreams

Good Morning!!

  Today I have a combination that I ended up loving a whole lot more than I expected. I was gifted these Two Debora Lippmann polishes last Saturday at our Neiman Marcus breakfast. I won't go on a whole lot because I am crazy busy today but these pictures do all the speaking! 
 I am wearing Ray of Light with accents of Sweet Dreams. These are both jelly based polishes packed full of Coppery flakies that shift to Red to Gold to Green/Blue. I love the inky tone of the base color in Ray of Light. Sweet Dreams is exactly that... A sweet dream. When I say I couldn't stop staring at my hands I really mean it. These have a slightly thick formula but nothing too problematic. I did Two coats of each color.
 How stunning are these?! Those flakies... MMmmmmm!!! I topped these off with a coat of Cult Nails Wicked Fast top coat and I still stand by my claim of it being my new favorite top coat. Dried faster than Seche Vite, it is not goopy and IT DOES NOT SHRINK!!! I usually have an issue with jelly based polishes shrinking on me but Wicked Fast did not cause that to happen!! Oh happy day!!

Thoughts?

  5. I love both!! I have Sweet Dreams and I think I'll get Ray of Light too. I'm not sure because I already have Nfu-oh 51...
    I changed to Poshe top coat instead of Seche Vite because of the shrinking and it's working very well so far!

  7. My Ray of Light was horribly thick and clumpy! Really hard to apply and started chipping really bad really quickly! :(

  8. These both look nice but I feel like layering a similar toned jelly with a SotT type of flakie will give me a very similar look at a way cheaper price.

    Rebecca-have you tried adding polish thinner to your bottle? its a godsend when a polish is too thick. Thinner is available at nail supply stores like Sally's for under $5.

  12. Hi!! I've been following your blog for a while (big fan :D). I recently just got Ray of Light, but mine looks a lot darker (the blue colour) than yours and doesn't have the jelly feel :( Do you think it could be because I put on 3 layers (and you only have 2 coats here)..yours look way prettier (love sweet dreams too, it's next on my list)
