Pink Week #4: With An Assist From Me...

"To be who you'll be

Instead of dreary who-you-were:well are

There's nothing that can stop you
From becoming popu-
Ler: lar:"

Yup, I definitely started this post with a song!  For those of you who haven't seen or read Wicked, it is probably my favorite book ever.  I keep missing the play, though.  Something always comes up!  So, I was super excited that they are making it into a movie!  I heard that the play isn't as dark and gritty as the book is, so I'm hoping they will make it up to me in movie form :) 

For the anniversary of Wicked last year, Deborah Lippmann released a limited edition Sephora exclusive set.  I HAD to have it!  I was going to review the whole set, but I effed up the box (and am consequently looking for someone that doesn't want their set so I can buy it... again), so I'm going to show you the colors individually at some point or another.  Today though, I have Popular.  This shade represents Glinda, the good witch.  

I included a photo of the mini bottle next to a Zoya bottle to compare DLs "mini" sizes.

By and large, although this is a gorgeous color, I'm super disappointed with DL on this one.  It is super sheer.  I had to use four coats to get rid of the VNL.  That is not good.  Especially in a mini bottle!  Although I want a second of this set, it is completely for the collector aspect.  I wouldn't pay $15 for this polish alone.  Deborah, again, not impressed!

To lead out on a good note though, I think I'll add the video for this song.  Hope it makes you smile!  :)

On another note, I LOVE Kristen Chenoweth!  :)
What do you all think?  Thanks for reading!



  1. gorgeous indeed, but I agree with you, 4 coats is really pushing it! I wouldn't have patience

    1. If I don't get my paws on another set I probably will never use it again. If I DO buy another, though, I'll try it with some undies. It's just not worth it to play around with that tiny amount.

  2. I would be super pissed that it took 4 coats! There's no excuse for that except wanting to make an extremely sought after polish. Ridiculous!

    That said it looks pretty on you tho. :)

    1. Thank you!

      I wish I could find it in another brand. Like, same color. I agree that it's ridiculous! Be on the lookout! ;)
