Lippmann All That Jazz trio swatches

Just got these in from yesterday and swatched them immediately!

Lippmann Some Enchanted Evening (over Essie Demure Vixen)
Pink glitter with larger hex glitter suspended in clear polish. This can never be built up to be opaque... unless you had superhuman patience. The above shows two coats over Essie Demure Vixen. This is probably not a great layering combination but I had DV on right as I was beginning to swatch and decided to just go with it.

Lippmann Lady Sings the Blues

I thought this would be my favorite of the set but I was sort of disappointed by it. Silver glitter and large silver hex glitter suspended in dark blue jelly. In theory, I love it, but the silver hex glitter sticks up on the surface and looks more silver than blue on the top coat. I kind of wish it were blue glitter rather than silver glitter. It also wasn't as glossy as I would have liked. BUT! It was opaque in two coats (which is great for a jelly) and it dried ridiculously fast.

Lippmann Razzle Dazzle

I was not expecting this to be my favorite of the set but it absolutely was. It is just soooo deliciously rich and glittery: dark, purple-leaning red jelly (like the color of good sangria with a lot of fruit in it) with two different sizes of red glitter. Yummers! Also, had a lovely glossy finish. This was three coats but it should be fine at two.
