Deborah Lippmann Dream a Little Dream of Me

So, I have become a little addicted to Deborah Lippmann's polishes.  It seems like as soon as I say I'm done, HSN will have a fabulous deal to which that I just can't say no.  My most recent purchase from HSN included the Run the World (Girls) neon box set (review coming soon), as well as a duo of Don't Tell Mama and Dream a Little Dream of Me.  

Honestly, I wasn't going to get the duo.  Yes, it was clearanced out for less than $10, but it also only had one color I thought I would like, and that color was Don't Tell Mama.  In the end, I decided to get it for Don't Tell Mama, and I, pretty much, thought of Dream a Little Dream of Me as a throw-away color.  And once I got it home, my opinion was, unfortunately, not changed...

It's a sheer candy pink with blue, iridescent micro-shimmer.  I really did not like this polish alone on my nails.  The color didn't work with my skin, and for a pink polish, I have no idea how it made my nails appear yellow.  The above picture is 3 coats and I am nowhere near opacity.  So, I was all set to chuck it in my reject box when I decided to layer it over black.  This is what I discovered...

The above 2 pictures show 2 coats of Dream a Little Dream of Me over 2 coats of Nails Inc Black Taxi.

Isn't it amazing?  It doesn't even look like the same polish.  Layering it over a dark base color, completely turns this one from a "no" to a resounding "YES".  The dark base essentially makes the sheer pink base color go away and you are left with the amazing blue shimmer.  This really reminds me of the long-discontinued China Glaze Blk Bila Bong or maybe even Chanel Nuit de Russie.  

I think this would look fantastic layered over other dark bases as well.  I can't wait to try it over a navy blue or a deep, vampy purple. 

Deborah Lippmann Dream a Little Dream of Me can be found at various online stores including HSN.com (where I purchased mine).  I got mine in a clearance duo, which is sadly out of stock now, but HSN still carries this polish as a single.  Dream a Little Dream of Me retails for $16 a bottle.
