Deborah Lippmann 'Ruby Red Slippers'

I am very "iffy" about Lippmann polishes. I tend to love the colors, and hate the formula, or hate the color but love the formula. In other words, something is always wrong with the polish. And at $18 a bottle, you want to make sure you completely love the color and formula Out of all the Deborah Lippmann polishes that I have owned, Ruby Red Slippers is by far my favorite.




Ruby Red Slippers is a black jelly base with tons of red hexagonal glitter. The glitter is all different sizes, and it looks amazing on the nails. The black base is a little sheer, but the color builds up nicely. One option is to layer this over a black or red polish to avoid using three coats of this one alone.

I used one coat of Deborah Lippmann's 'Lady is a Tramp' with two coats of 'Ruby Red Slippers' and a top coa in the pictures below. Note also, these photos were taken before I had to cut my nails.







Isn't gorgeous??? Best part is that is looks good on both short and long nails~

  1. Deborah Lippmann polishes always look so gorgeous but are they really worth the price? I bet there's some great drugstore dupes outside, maye you will find your perfect nail polish one day?

  8. Indeed it is a super hot, bloody color! :D

    @GABY: Whether it is worth it or not depends on you I guess.Most of the ones I have tried are not worth the $18 price tag. This one and Across the Universe were totally worth it for me though! I believe Essence has a dupe for Across the Universe, but Idk of any dupes for Ruby Red Slippers.

    @Charisse: I totally agree!
