I wouldn’t call myself a ‘girly girl’, however mention the words ‘pink’, ‘glitter’ and ‘nail polish’ together and I start to get excited. When I first saw Deborah Lippmann’s Two of Hearts nail polish duo gift set*, I actually let out a little squeal of excitement. Not only does this fab set of mini polishes cover the pink and glittery part, it also comes housed in its own glittery mini makeup bag, making it a perfect gift.
The Two of Hearts duo features two mini sized polishes in cult favourite Candy Shop (a pink based multi-glitter) and Shape of My Heart (a soft pink blush crème). Both look gorgeous worn alone, but really come together when worn as a pair.
Candy Shop has a very light, bubblegum pink base to it, with lots of multi-coloured glitter flecks within. It would look lovely worn over Shape Of My Heart as a top coat, but my favourite way to wear it has to be layered up on its own as an opaque polish. It needs 3 coats to get that effect, but as you can see in the swatch, it’s definitely worth the drying time! Wear time is also very good – I went several days without any chips, however do prepare yourself for the removal – it’s the usual glitter pain in the bum.
Now, I mentioned that these are mini polishes, however they’re actually 8ml each, so really quite good sizes. Deborah Lippmann polishes are usually 15ml each, so are pretty big bottles compared to others on the market.
The Two of Hearts duo is £17, just £1 more than the price of a regular Deborah Lippmann polish and I think it would make the perfect gift for any nail polish lover (or yourself). The glittery bag is definitely on the mini size, but surely size doesn't matter when it’s this cute?
You can find this gorgeous duo from Selfridges and Look Fantastic. Do you like the look of it?
