Deborah Lippmann nail polish in Sugar Daddy

Deborah Lippmann's Sugar Daddy polish is one of the three mirrored chrome polishes launched by the brand for summer 2012.  It is officially described as "antiqued champagne".   This polish is really difficult for me to describe and even more challenging to photograph.

In some lights it is a very antique gold, in others it is a very pale almost lilac color.  There is definitely some very fine duo chrome glitter in the base, a lilac/lavender and then possibly a strong gold or green.  The base seems to be a pinky campaign color.

I was surprised by the subtlety and complexity of this color.  It is very pale, but also such a chameleon.

Like the other Lippmann shades I've tried, this polish was impressively opaque in one coat, even though I applied two coats.  It applied very smoothly and while it didn't have the bulletproof wear of Lippmann's more glittery polishes, it did wear very well with minimal chipping on the tips.

Sugar Daddy contains .5 oz of product and retails for $18.  I got mine at Nordstrom.

Overall: 8/10
