On File: Sheer Nail Polish

Deborah Lippmann Sheer Nail Polish - Politics of Pretty

Sheer nail polish was a popular beauty trend backstage at 2015 Spring/Summer New York Fashion Week (think Theory, Donna Karan and Badgley Mischka to name a few). Instead of flashy color, Deborah Lippmann previewed shades from her new Whisper Collection, playing with contour, shape, texture, and finish. I’m partial to Like Dreamers Do (far left), a sheer crème pale bisque. And I’ve already planned on wearing Chantilly Lace, a sheer iridescent shimmer pink, on Valentine’s Day. You’ll need at least two coats will to give you just a hint of color. This collection is fresh, young and sophisticated—which makes it a must-have for my stash.
