Cosmic daisies: Lippmann Collection Good Girl Gone Bad

Hello ladies,

Happy to be blogging again, I spent the past week on bed rest with a stomach flu. I wanted to emerge with sparkle. I chose an older polish from Lippmann Collection that exemplifies my love of purple and glitter.

From Born Pretty plate M08, I stamped the daisies with a franken made from Konad silver and China Glaze Millennium. I accented the daisy centers with grey pearls and silver beads. I flipped the stamping design every other nail and varied the placement of the the tiny beads. It's subtle, but I adore the movement created by these slight variations.

Good Girl Gone Bad is a gem among my older polishes. It's part of a discontinued mini trio from Deborah Lippmann called Party Like a Rockstar. The formula is a purple jelly stirred with hot pink and silver glitter. I am wearing three coats for opacity. While the square lid seemed a little cumbersome, the polish applied easily for a mini. It also dries quickly.

I hope you ladies enjoyed my glitter from the past.

Design plate M08 was sent to me for review. Part of nail art stamping set #518, this item can be purchased at

Happy painting, ladies!


  1. Glad to see you back up and about! :)

    The mani is very, very pretty! Good Girl Gone Bad is a gorgeous shade! For some reason I've never been much for Deborah Lippmann colors but this one is quite appealing to me! The fact that it's DC'ed strikes me as strangely apropos since I've spurned the brand until now. LOL! ;)

  2. Welcome back! I missed reading your posts! :)

  3. Great to have you back, I missed your posts :P
    Gorgeous mani, as always!

  4. Glad you're feeling better and back with such a pretty glitter

  5. Ruthiegirl: Thanks so much! I am so happy to be feeling better.

    Deborah Lippmann makes one of my favorite gold polishes ever: Nefertiti.

    Michelle: Thank you, sweetie! I have lots planned for the next couple weeks especially. I am so happy to be posting again.

    Silva: Thank you, kindly. I have lots of things in store to make up for my absence.

    Cali369: Thank you! I think glitter is an agent for good health. :)

  6. It's good to hear you are better. This mani is a bit dainty and a bit vampy all rolled together. Oxymoron of manis. lol

  7. Love this polish! Hope your feeling much better. Beautiful manicure.

  8. Kimberly: I think I am a bit dainty and a bit vampy. ;)

    Lucy: Thanks so much! Still a little tired, but I am getting back to full vitality. Glitter speeds the healing process. xoxo!

  9. Welcome back to blogging! It's good to hear that you're better now. And I love this shade, the colour and shimmer are absolutely beautiful! As is your delicate konad design, which suits this mani so well. :)
