Deborah Lippmann - Almost Paradise

A lot of other nail bloggers are doing "Try it Out" Tuesday. I'm sort of following with that since this is yet another polish that I haven't tried before, but I'm not sure I'll be able to do it every Tuesday! I'll have to do more epic manicures, nail art, and just plain everything on my weekends. Still, for today's never-before-used polish, I have Almost Paradise, from the Deborah Lippmann Footloose collection.

I ordered the lovely Footloose collection from HSN not too far back. They were on clearance for $9 or so per pair - so like $5 per polish! This one came paired with Footloose, which I posted about last month.

As much as I love Footloose, this has to be my favorite from the collection. Almost Paradise is a very light green color. It is a cream, with absolutely no shimmer, but that doesn't make it any less beautiful. The color ultimately reminds me of key lime pie!

The photos are all of two coats of Almost Paradise, topped with one coat of Seche Vite. My first coat was petty thin since I didn't apply too much, and it was very sheer. I applied more in my second coat so I could achieve full coverage in two, and it worked well. I was tempted to just do three thin coats total, but these two worked!

Application was very smooth, as it is with most creams or Deborah Lippmann polishes. I only have a few DL's, but so far I love the formula. They go on very nicely, dry nicely, and the colors are just fantastic. I will be buying more whenever they're on clearance again, but I may not be willing to pay full price yet!

All in all, this is a great polish. This is a very unique shade of green for my collection, so that's also probably why I enjoy it so much. It's such a simple and refreshing color, and using a creme after my Indie Week (mostly glitter) is also a nice change!


  1. I recently used AP in some nail art, and I thought it was such a weird color! Why would 'Almost Paradise' be such a funky green? LOL

    1. haha I don't know! It indeed weird, but it reminds me of key lime pie and margaritas! I guess those are topical/paradise-y?

  2. I love that it looks creamy and a lovely summery colour xx

    1. It is such a wonderful color. It's still on clearance from HSN too! I'm so glad I got it - I'll be putting it to good use.


I would love to hear your feedback!
