Bad Romance

Hello all! I have a swatch of one of the newest releases from Deborah Lippmann, Bad Romance.

DL: " Bad Romance was inspire by last winter's Ruby Red Slippers. I loved this shade so much and wanted to keep that sheer black base but take it into to 2011. I was manicuring Lady Gaga for a photo shoot recently and thought to myself, "What would Gaga do?" The result was Bad Romance, a moody a dark yet brilliantly provocative glitter polish - a Gaga-blackened fuchsia. The chunky sequin shade captures the high-fashion feel of Gaga's signature style and the bold statement of the namesake song. It's also a great shade for toes - make sure you're pedi-ready for this season's peep-toe booties!"

This swatch was two coats. It's still looks a little sheer in spots and could have used a third, but I have worn it before with two coats. I just did them a bit thicker. I don't usually like blacks that much, but this one gets by because the sheer base allows for lots of the glitter to show through, making it look pretty shiny and purple and not so black. It is just the same concept as Ruby Red Slippers from last year, just with purple hexagons and small glitter instead of the red.

You can get Bad Romance at Barney's, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom and at It retails for $18
