Favorite Nail Polish of the Week: Boom Boom Pow from deborah lippmann

This weeks favorite is Boom Boom Pow from Deborah Lippmann. It is a gorgeous gold glitter that is so perfect for summer evenings, it really catches the light from indoor lighting and candlelight. I also noticed when I read at night the glitter reflects on my book, like a disco ball - sooo neat :)

Boom Boom Pow

Boom Boom Pow was released last August as part of the 2010 Holiday Collection with Today Was a Fairy Tale . It doesn't layer to be solid, as you can see in the swatches below, but I really like that. I think it looks best on its own, but it also looks lovely layered over a base color. I plan to use it in an upcoming NOTD layered over another base color... and I use it on the bling finger in this NOTD over Purple With a Purpose by OPI. So check those swatches out too :)

TIP: When you're impatient or just don't have the time to sit around letting your nails dry... after about 5 minutes of air drying, dunk your fingers in a bowl of ice water for a minute or so to set and harden your nail polish. You will still have to be careful but not nearly as careful as just air drying alone. :) Hope this tip helps?!?
