Deborah Lipmann P.Y.T. (Pretty Young Thing) Review

I got the chance to try one of the famous Deborah Lipmann nail polishes in P.Y.T. (Pretty Little Thing). This is a beautiful, pale pink shade that is perfect if you want a hint of color on your nails! Let’s start with the review!

Price:
$17, from Barney’s

This is a pricey nail polish! I am probably not going to have another one of these polishes in my collection. To be honest, good and cheap drugstore polishes work the same as pricey, high end ones in my opinion! It is fun to treat yourself once in awhile, but not every time you shop.

Packaging:

The packing is quite nice! It looks like it is made out of glass with a black plastic top. It actually feels light and I like the packaging very much!

Product:

The product itself is great! Pretty Young Thing is a sheer pink that is perfect for a natural look on your nails. I had to build up the color though because it was very sheer. I painted at least 3 good coats! Check out the swatches below.

I really liked this polish and if you are willing to spend the money, buy it! It’s a great little treat to yourself! Plus, it’s always great to have a beautiful luxurious pale polish! 😉

Nail Art

Hey guys! Last night I tried out some nail art inspired by a cutepolish tutorial. If you don’t know who cutepolish is, she makes nail art tutorials on YouTube and they are fantastic and easy to recreate! My manicure is inspired by the Pearls & Pastels video. I didn’t have the pearls, so I used colored nail gems instead. Take a look!

ImageImageThis manicure is so fun and girly. The only thing that I don’t like about this is that the gems tend to fall off after a day or so, and I have to reapply them often. I put lots of topcoat on but they still seem to fall off after awhile. If you have any tips for this, please tell me! 🙂

I am not great at nail art. I can do a regular manicure perfectly (even on the left side!) but  experimental nail art usually get ruined very quickly. The only nail art that I was able to do that looked nice was little bunnies. Now I can do so much more! You just need the right tools, then it’s really easy from there. I found a nail art brush set for about two dollars on Amazon and it contains stripers, dotting tools, and more! It is really helpful. Often when I do nail art, I only do it on the right because the left will be a disaster. I just paint the left either white or one of the main colors from the right side (I hope that made sense…)

I’m definitely going to share more nail art ideas with you! I hope you enjoyed reading! If you have any requests for reviews, please leave a comment below!
