So, this is an older polish of mine! I originally reviewed it via email to my friends last May, but my opinion has not changed and I figured it would make a good post.
It Girl is from Lippmann’s Run the World Collection.
I really do like most of the colours in this collection quite a bit, so it’s worth a buy if you can find it. Another great thing is that Lippmann’s mini’s have full size brushes. I hate when mini polishes have mini brushes…it’s not like I suddenly have barbie hands just because I bought a mini polish, my nails are still the same size and having to use 3 brush fulls per nail is a huge pain, and going over my nail 4 times because I can’t get enough polish on it is also a huge pain.
Here’s a picture of It Girl in the bottle. Based on the bottle, one would think that this is a cool neon yellow colour. I was so excited to put it on. Welp, see the results for yourself
Possibly one of the biggest disappointments I’ve ever had with a polish.
This is basically a pumpkin colour. It’s actually quite nice on my skin tone, but it is certainly not the colour in the bottle, so I felt very very misled.
Sooo, this also had a terrible application. It took about 6 coats to get that level of coverage, it looked like orange highlighter over my nails on the first pass, it had no opacity to it at all. In fact, you can still see the nail lines if you look closely at the photos. I thought that putting it over a white base would be better. It wasn’t.
It did dry quickly, and applied smoothly, but I don’t think that a solid formula can overcome a bad colour.
It wore well, but after 6+ coats, and a top…I don’t think that’s impressive.
Removal was time consuming also, because I had like 8 coats of polish on my nail in total- one base, 6 colour, one top. Boooooooo.
I’ve used this colour twice since I bought it in June. It was bad both times. The colour isn’t terrible, just a disappointment, but needing 6+ coats is the nail in the coffin for this polish.
Luckily the rest of the Run the World collection is solid, because It Girl is a solid “meh” at best.
What does everyone else think? Is this colour terrible? Was I wrong to be disappointed? Any suggestions for making the polish one I love? Anyone else have this collection and love it?
