If you know me or have been reading my blog, you probably know I’m not a huge fan of glitter. I’m slowly coming around, but the removal makes glitter such a pain that I don’t even try to mess with glitter usually. When I saw swatches of Glitter in the Air from Deborah Lippmann, I thought it was incredibly unique and reminded me of birthday cake for some reason. When I ordered some of the summer colors, I also got this one as well, just to try it.
I recently read that Deborah Lippmann names all of her polishes after songs – that’s pretty cool. “Glitter in the Air” is a song by Pink. Glitter in the Air is a very sheer polish with a milky baby blue base with circular and hexagonal pink and blue glitter shapes. You may be disappointed in the sheerness of this polish – my above swatch is three coats. However, I think this polish is best for layering, so I have two examples below.
I first tried it over China Glaze’s Snow. Glitter in the Air mutes the white slightly, but still makes the glitter apparent.
When I saw that Glitter in the Air had a blue milky base, I thought it would look spectacular against China Glaze’s Sea Spray or OPI’s I Vant To Be A Lonestar. I hadn’t tried the OPI yet, so I put that on with two coats, then applied two coats of Glitter in the Air. I love this combo, and I bet it looks great over Sea Spray, too. I think this makes it blend together quite nicely.
I also was very pleased how easy the glitter removed. I wish all glitters would remove like this! I may have to try another glitter of hers just to make sure it wasn’t a fluke. Glitter in the Air retails for $18. Deborah Lippmann’s glitters are a little more expensive ranging from $18-$20. You can purchase this on her website, but it’s currently sold out! Must be a popular shade!
