Giveaway: Deborah Lippmann Polish Set [CLOSED]

Aug 30, 2012


This week, I’m giving away a selection of polishes from my new-favorite brand, Deborah Lippmann.  These colors are bright, pretty and perfect for every day wear.  

The bright red on the left is a traditional Parisian red called It’s Raining Men.  The middle shade is an ethereal shimmering pink called Dream a Little Dream.  And the final shade is sheer pale pink called Baby Love.  

These polishes retail for $16 a piece, but today, they can be yours for free if you win this giveaway.  To enter, simply leave a comment containing the name or color of your favorite nail polish shade for summer or fall.

I happen to LOVE Essie’s Lollipop, a bold red, for summer, and NARS Purple Rain, a dark purple with gold flecks, for fall.  But I’m currently wearing Deborah Lippmann’s Between the Sheets, a magenta shade.

    Opi – Nice Color, Eh?

  2. Colli says:

    This summer, I wore China Glaze's “For Audry” (a lovely Tiffany blue) on my toes almost every day. I'm wicked excited about fall, though: OPI's “You Don't Know Jacques” (my favorite grey-brown) will be on my nails 24/7 starting after Labor Day.

    By the way: I ADORE your blog! Reading your daily posts are the highlight of my evening. Thanks for the contest and the work you invest in Capitol Hill Style every day. 🙂

    My favorite is Zoya's Suri., half because I love the blue color and half because I love the name.

  13. Joanne says:

    O.P.I. Kangarooby. A beautiful deep red that looks lovely with my olive skin in the fall. I've bought 3 bottles of this already!

    For fall I love Essie's Bobbing for Baubles. The perfect smoky grey blue.

  23. helixy says:

    China Glaze's Flip Flop Fantasy is a ridiculously bright neon pink for summer. Honestly, the application sucks but the color payout is freaking amazing. For Autumn, and also into winter, I am another lover of OPI's I'm not Really a Waitress (although when I first discovered it, I was!) and also China Glaze's Ruby Pumps.

  24. Heatheresq says:

    For all seasons honestly, it's OPI Lincoln Park After Dark. But I really am loving Essie Turquoise & Caicos right now.

  28. Melissa says:

    For summer I've been wearing Zoya Sooki (red) and Penny (copper) and Zuza (turquoise shimmer), rotating them through pedicures. For fall I'm looking forward to busting out my greens – Zoya Dree for my toes and BL Wallis for my tips.

  29. SLM says:

  34. SarahT says:

    For summer: Toes – OPI's I'm Not Really a Waitress layered over Essie's Meet Me at Sunset for a shade that's not too orange, not too red.
    For fall: Toes – OPI's Black Cherry Chutney; Fingers – OPI's Midnight in Moscow or Essie's Miss Fancy Pants…..oh and definitely still using Chanel's Graphite from last season!

    Nars orgasm nail polish. coral with gold flecks, can be layered or worn sheer, expensive but worth it.

  47. er says:

    For years, my favorite color for any season (but especially summer) was Italian Love Affair by OPI or Pat on the Black, a deep, dark purple(forget by whom) for fall. I haven't picked a new favorite…I need to do some research!

  48. Tierney says:

    I actually give myself at home gel-manicures all the time, and it's always the standard bright red. What can I say–I love to match my lipstick!

  51. Jenn says:

  52. CLReed says:

    Im pretty classic when it comes to my fingernail polish…I wear Essie's “Ballet Slippers” – it's a hint of pink/mauve/taupe. Very subtle.
    For my toenails – I'm a little more daring. I opt for oranges, reds and corals in the summer but am looking forward to trying the burgandy and greys.

  53. Emilee says:

    I can't wait for fall because I LOVE wearing darker colors. I just got China Glaze “Concrete Catwalk” which is a dark grey… I'm just waiting for it to get cooler and the leaves to change here in DC!

  58. Genevieve says:

  61. Valerie says:

    I've just recently decided to get back into wearing nail polish after many years of going au natural. I just picked up a lovely nude Zoya polish recently – I think it is Amanda. Looking forward to trying it out!

    Btw, did you know Deborah Lippmann polishes are also supposedly 5 Free (no Formaldehyde, Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP), Toluene, Formaldehyde Resin or Camphor)? So, not only beautiful, but healthier than other polishes, too! I'd love to win these!

  62. KRF says:

  63. CEM says:

    i like a light purple

  76. Liz says:

    I love Essie Peach Daiquiri for summer – adds a great pop of color, but not too crazy for work!

  81. EBB says:

    In the spring and summer, I prefer a lighter shade such as OPI's Mimosas for Mr. & Mrs or Isn't It Romantic. For fall, I love the classic OPI Red or An Affair in Red Square. However in the depths of Chicago winters, I stick to a light shade of gray such as French Quarter for Your Thoughts because anything darker is just too depressing.

    OPI I'm Not Really a Waitress and Sally Hansen Haute Chocolate.

  83. Sara says:

    Essie's Mink Muff!

  84. Gabriela says:

    I love essie ballet slippers during the summer and the rimmell purple/grey color for fall!

  86. Sarah R. says:

    Right now I'm wearing OPI's Kiss Me on My Tulips.

  87. b23 says:

    Cajun Shrimp by OPI for summer, and I'm Not Really A Waitress by OPI for fall/winter. I love having my nails bright and short. I've never tried this brand, but I'm hoping I get to!

  88. Kelly says:

    My favorite summer shade is Essie's “Clambake!” It's a gorgeous flirty, fun, and bold red!

  89. Amy says:

    My favorite will always be Essie Mademoiselle.

  90. Emily says:

    I really like the Complete Salon Manicure “Commander in Chic” – it's really more of a fall color.

  91. Lexi says:

    Thanks for doing the giveaway! I love Orly's Rage, a rose gold metallic, for both Summer and Fall. I'm really looking forward to wearing dark blues for Fall… I have six (my fave is OPI Road House Blues)! However, my favorite shade for cooler weather is Chanel's Black Pearl. It's so beautiful.

    Essie 'Lights' … but it's “retired” so I should probably find a new fav!

  97. Sarah says:

    I've been rotating through Zoya's blogger collection pretty much all summer! I've been looking Essie's collection for fall, but haven't decided which ones I want yet!

    deborah lippmann's “brick house” for fall

  107. Rory says:

    Essie's Demure Vixen has become my go-to polish. I can't call it a shimmer, per say, but it looks like a nude/super light lavender with a lilac and pink sheen to it. It goes with everything and lasts forever. If you like more traditional colors, make sure to check it out!

  108. whitney says:

    Loving Essie's Turquoise & Caicos! Seems to be a popular answer 🙂

  109. C says:

    OPI Wine Malaga. Perfect for fall!

  110. My favorite summer color is Tarte Deco (Essie). My favorite fall color is Mink Muffs (Essie) or Mrs. O'leary's BBQ (OPI). My favorite any-time color is Fiji (Essie)

  111. melissa says:

    I own 400+ polishes, so it's really difficult to choose. But if you were going to take them all away and leave me two, they'd be:

    My Favorite summer shade- Spoiled's Tip Your Waitress, a neon pink jelly.

    My Favorite Fall/Winter polish- OPIs the Thrill of Brazil, the perfect all around red creme.

  112. Alexis says:

    I LOVE Essie's “Allure,” I've been wearing it all summer and it makes me feel polished (ugh, no pun intended) without being super punchy.

  113. BT says:

    Single Ladies by Deb Lippman!

  114. Kelley says:

  119. Nicole says:

    OPI Linkin Park After Dark has been my fall STAPLE for years

  120. Betsy says:

    I love Essie's “Rock Star Skinny” for fall, but I think I should be allowed to wear OPI's “Cajun Shrimp” year round!

  121. strin012 says:

    Currently wearing OPI You Rock-Apulco Red on my fingers and toes. I don't usually go bold on my hands, but I was on vacation and it is recess. I may actually keep it up, I like it so much…

    Summer: Fiji by Essie
    Fall: I've got the blues for red by OPI

  123. Ann says:

    Dutch Tulips for me!

  124. Cecilia says:

    I love Nails Inc.'s Shoreditch. It's a vibrant, dark, hot pink with the easiest formula to apply.

  125. Jennifer says:

    My favorite Summer polish is Essie's Clambake. It's a poppy shade of orange/red. The best Fall shade is Essie's Wicked. It's this beautiful red/purple/black hybrid color and is dark and sleek without being goth. LOVE it!

  126. Katie says:

    OPI Cajun Shrimp.

  127. Katherine K says:

    My favorite nail polish shade is “OPI Red” – surprisingly, it is both red and made by OPI. A classic, nonmetallic red (very good for pedicures!)

  137. Melissa says:

    I just got a Julep Maven subscription and I'm super impressed with their polishes (check them out here: HTTP://JULEP.COM/?R=23407870). For fall I'll probably be wearing a dark purple like Gayle or a brown like Vera.

  138. Tessa says:

    I'm loving Butter London's Blowing Raspberries. It's the perfect red-pink that will work in summer, fall and winter! I'm loving a lot of the charcoal grays that are out, too, but no particular shade has won me over yet.

  139. E says:

    My favorite red is Vodka & Caviar by OPI. I can't wait to break it when the weather cools down!

    My favorite shade is OPI Big Apple Red. The absolute PERFECT shade of red for me!

  142. Chrissy Dee says:

    My all-time favorite color which I never tire of wearing is OPI “You're such a kabuki queen”. Its the perfect pink and always makes me happy.

  143. Heather says:

    purple's my fave color, so it'll definitely be something that's a deep rich purple shade

  156. I'm excited to try Essie's Stylenomics!

  157. B says:

    My perfect summer-to-fall transition color is Essie's Plumberry. A beautiful dark berry pink, it is enough of a color punch for summer but dark enough that it will go beautifully with all of the oxblood I'm planning to wear in the next few months. That said, the weather where I am is especially warm this week, so I'm saying goodbye to summer by wearing bright pink over Labor Day: Sally Hansen's Complete Manicure in Shrimply Devine.

  158. LV says:

    Right now am obsessed with Shine of the Times top coat by Essie, but my old standby love is All Hail the Queen by Butter London, perfect for work but still fun.

  165. KM says:

    OPI Senorita Rose-alita for summer. Pink with peach irredecent undertones. Essie Eternal Optimist for Fall. Beige-y with just enough pink to flatter my skin tone.

  166. Sharona says:

    My favorite summer color is Essie watermelon, my favorite fall color is OPI midnight in moscow!

  167. Tanya N says:

    Essie Island Hopping, it's a lovely purple but neutral enough to not distract.

  168. AM says:

    Loxy Lady- as one might guess, it is a smoked salmon color by the makers of Wet N' Wild- it was purchased just for the name (as you can do when a nail polish only costs 2 dollars), but the shade is actually very cute!

  169. c. says:

    OPI's “You Don't Know Jacques” is my new love.

  170. Joanne E. says:

  172. Caryl says:

    Right now it's OPI Oui Bit of Red!

    My go-to colors for summer were Essie's Ole Caliente and Bikini so tiny!

  182. Angie says:

    OPI's Danke-Shiny Red is my new favorite from the Germany Collection!

  183. Emily says:

    Deborah Lipmann's “Bitches Brew” has the best name and fab color to boot. Empowering when you need a little something extra to get you going!

  184. Sierra says:

    I love a dark, thick, grey nail color but I've been wanting to try something new. The It's Raining Men color would be perfect!

  185. M says:

    My new favorite red for toes is Essie's Size Matters (well, I don't have to like the name…). It's the perfect summer-to-fall not-too-bright cherry.

  186. lolabolt says:

    I've been rocking my Essie Turquoise and Caicos, a light blue Nail Savvy polish from a looonnggg time ago and MAC's Peppermint Patty on rotation. Nail Savvy being the most blue, Turqoise and Caicos being in the middle and Peppermint Patty being on the greener pastel side. I am clearly stuck on that general color scheme.

  187. EmZ says:

    I loved wearing Essie's Tart Deco this summer!

  188. Elise says:

    Essie Fiji for summer! It makes your tan look even darker, and I always love OPI Russian Navy for fall/winter.

  189. EA says:

    Loving Essie's mango color!

  190. Wendy T says:

    My favorite polish this summer has been “Orchids Oh My!” by Maybelline New York.

  191. ab says:

    I love a discontinued OPI color called “Your Villa or Mine?” (peach/gold/cora) and “I'm wth Brad” by OPI for Sephora!

  192. MA says:

    Too hard to choose just one, its like picking a favorite child. For fall: I like deeper blue based reds on short fingernails like OPI “Big Apple Red”. I definitely need a good deeper flirting with burgundy shade for this fall. I've got my eye on Deborah Lippmann “Lady is a Tramp”. On my toes I run the gamut from extremely glittery (OPI's “Mad as a Hatter”) to neutral (Sephora by Opi “Metro Chic”).

  193. Kay says:

    Right now I'm loving Dior Vernis Blue Label. For some reason, navy on my toes just feels so chic to me!

  194. TScali says:

    OPI's French Quarter for your Thoughts is so warm and sophisticated. Loving the DL collection, too!

  195. Lauren says:

    For summer, I like a nice red or pink, like Zoya's Kimber. This fall I am looking forward to finding a nice burgundy to wear.

  196. Leanne says:

    Essie's Lapiz of Luxury! Such a great shade of blue for the summer and even into fall.

  197. Jenny says:

    My favorite nail polish color is Revlon Marmalade.

  198. Susannah says:

    My favorite shade for any season is Essie Geranium. The red-orange-coral is perfect for my skin tone.

  199. Kristine says:

    My favorite shades for fall are OPI Royal Rajah Ruby and Nars Galion.

  200. Ann says:

    Been wearing Essie's Geranium all summer!

  201. Nancy says:

    I love essie's geranium! It is the perfect orange red.

  202. Grace says:

    Thanks for the giveaway! I've never tried Deborah LIppman polishes, but those colors are gorgeous, especially that red. I also love reading what colors everyone else has been wearing!

    This summer, I've been switching between Essie Ole Caliente (a bright, orangy pink) and Pretty Edgy (a grass green).

  203. K says:

    I am wearing an awful lot of Joe Fresh Teal and Lagoon as of late and also count Essie's Merino Cool as a favourite standby. Although right now I am wearing a champagne pink shimmer from Urban Venus for an upcoming wedding.

  204. Calli says:

    I love Essie's Tart Deco for summer!

  205. Genevieve says:

    Essie's Mint Candy Apple is my go-to summer shade!

  206. KC says:

    I am loving Deborah Lippmann's Brick House!!

  207. Kay says:

    My favorite for fall is OPI's “You Don't Know Jacques.” For summer, I love OPI's “Do You Think I'm Tex-y” on my toes.

  208. BN says:

    My toes have been OPI I'm Not Really a Waitress since college. Perfect for all seasons. I change my fingernail color so frequently that I dont have a favorite, but toes are a constant. I even bring it with me to get pedicures on the off chance the salon doesn't have it in stock.

  209. Eden says:

    “Cherries in the Snow” by Revlon

  210. Kate says:

    I love light pinks like Essie Mademoiselle year round, but in the winter a dark, classic red feels so polished!

  211. Marisa says:

    I love Essie's Ole Caliente, a great shade of almost orangey-red for my pale skin, in the summer, and Merino Cool in the fall, a purpleish-gray for the fall.

  212. Alexandra says:

    I like Ulta's “Wicked” right now; it's a deep pink/magenta color that is great for the transition to fall.

  213. adrienne says:

    time to break out my fall go to: bastille my heart by opi!

  214. Christine says:

    My go-to summer color is Melon of Troy by OPI 🙂

  215. Pressley says:

    I always wear red on my toes, and I lived in Texas for a summer, so my favorite, obviously, is Big Hair, Big Nails from the OPI Texas line.

  216. kristin says:

    Lately I love Studio 85's Mambo Sauce. Buy local!

  217. Jennifer says:

    My fave fall colors are both from OPI: Silent Mauvie and Mauving to Manitoba. Both are gorgeous! Which reminds me, I need to redo my pedicure this weekend!

  218. K. says:

    Lately, I'm loving nude polishes with a (very) subtle touch of glitter. China Glaze “Fast Track” and Cult Nails “Cruisin' Nude” are both lovely. For summer pedicures, I like Essie “Tart Deco” (coral) and “Lovie Dovie” (pink).

  219. Lauren says:

    OPI Dutch Tulips is a CLASSIC. Love it.

  220. Ricki says:

    My favorite polish color for summer is Bermuda Shorts by Essie. Unfortunately it's been discontinued.

  221. Laura S says:

    My favorite fall nail polish is Zoya Kelly, a purpley-grey creme!

  222. colleen says:

    i love a good nude, but lately ive been on a rose-gold metallic kick with essie's “penny talk” (surprisingly not copper!)

  223. Alyssa says:

    I love China Glaze's For Audrey. It's a perfect Tiffany blue!

  224. MS says:

    I absolutely adore Confetti's Masquarade Ball. It's cheap – I got it for $0.99 at the local drug store – but three coats of this and a topcoat is beautiful for fall/transitioning into winter. 🙂

    As for summer, I personally loved using Confetti's Debutante as an undercoat to Revlon's Chili — the gold shimmered underneath the red jelly and could catch the light in a multitude of ways.

    (What can I say? I sometimes love to wear cheap nail polish.)

  225. Anita says:

    i love a good coral for the summer. Melon of Troy from OPI is a good one.
    And for the fall, I like a good nude pink – pretty much every nail polish brand has a great pink 🙂

  226. B.P. says:

    I love Essie's Bobbing for Baubles!

  227. Carol says:

    Love essie all tied up for summer, and butter london fash pack for fall.

  228. Annie says:

    On a whim, I picked up a mint shade at Urban Outfitters expecting it to be okay for a day or two. Turned into the perfect summer shade that worked with everything!

  229. amoeji says:

    My favorite polish color for the fall is CHANEL Paradoxal

  230. Laura says:

    Great giveaway!

    My favourite Fall color is Blue Satin by Chanel!

  231. Hello Belle and all Capitol Hill Style readers! Without question, my absolute favorite nail color for summer is Revlon's Nail Enamel in “Minted”. This affordable color is a wonderful accent to any outfit and transitions nicely from summer into fall. Can't live without it! 🙂

  232. Nancy says:

    I absolutely love Deborah Lippmann's Across the Universe for my pedicure in both the summer and fall. I'm also enjoying Essie's Blue Rhapsody this summer…guess I'm leaning towards blue polishes right now!

  233. Sarah says:

    I love Ready Set Ex for summer, and Lincoln Park After Dark is my all time fall/winter favorite.

  234. raq says:

    Deborah Lippmann's “Billionaire”- it's a gorgeous dark green, reminds me of a color you would see in camo and looks really lux next to black and gray

  235. McO says:

    I'd like to say mine is something more fall-appropriate…but the truth is that I pretty much always choose OPI Bubble Bath!

  236. Cait says:

    I'm loving Butter London's Demure – it's cute, but still conservative enough for work!

  237. HM says:

    When I can't get in to see the manicurist, I really like to put a light coat of Salley Hansen's Nearly Nude Creme over the whole nail with a coat of the Insta-Dri Anti-Chip Top Coat. It makes my nails look like I got a manicure and saves time and money.

  238. Morgan says:

    Favorite color is definitely St John's Wood by Nails Inc.

  239. ann says:

    I love gray-purples (grurples!) for fall – along the lines of Zoya Petra or Julep Alfre.

  240. Amanda says:

    I'm in love with OPI's Gouda Gouda Two Shoes. I can't help myself when it comes to all shades of pink polish!

  241. Kel says:

    I am really loving blues right now! This summer I've been wearing Essie's Bikini So Teeny and Nars' Kutki…Love them both! For fall I will be rocking Nails Inc's Baker's Street and China Glaze's Frostbite!!

  242. DL Lover says:

    My favorite polish this summer has been Deborah lippmanns supermodel!

  243. cs says:

    essie mod square is my new summer obsession- perfect hot pink without being office-inappropriate (at least in my line of work). fall is all about light gray for me- essie chinchilly is the perfect way to transition to the dark colors of cold months…and maybe i'll keep mod square on my toes 🙂

  244. Holly says:

    I love, love, love my brand new bottle of Chanel Skyline. I… had to buy it out of country. Ugh! But it's a beautiful metallic blue and hands-down my favorite right now.

    For fall, I love German-icure by OPI, Estee Lauder Viper, and NARS Stormbird. I don't think I can pick just one.

  245. My favorite color nail polish shade for summer is all neons in general!
    For fall, I really love to wear Siberian Nights, by OPI.

    *Fantastic giveaway! Thank you for the opportunity to win these gorgeous Lippmann's.

  246. Anne says:

    My favorite is Essie's Peach Daiquiri! Such a pretty pink-coral color 🙂

  247. teresa l says:

    opi's strawberry margarita is perfect for summertime pedis!

  248. Tierra says:

    I could live my whole life wearing OPI's “It's All Greek to Me”. It's a flashy pink color that begs to be noticed and pretty much gives any outfit a nice feminine pop of color.

  249. ColoradoCowgirl says:

    Essie's ladylike for fall–a gorgeous classic mauve.

  250. Casey says:

    My favorite polish color for fall is Butter Londons Gobsmacked!

  251. Rachel says:

    my favorite is penny-talk by Essie; it's a gorgeous color that goes well with different outfits and styles, it dires quickly, lasts a long time without chipping, and you can get away with just one coat! Perfect for a busy lifestyle.

  252. s says:

    Baby Love looks good

  253. Bo says:

    My favorite fall nail polish is Revlon's “Bewitching Bordeaux.”

  254. Lisa says:

    OPI's “Bet it all on the OPI.” Long discontinued so now I have to make do with ebay 🙁

  255. X says:

    OPI – Kennebunk Red

  256. L says:

    OPI's Dutch Tulip is my go to shade for fall into winter. Its shade of red compliments my complexion as it loses that summer glow during the fall and winter months.

  257. APW says:

    My favorite which always looks great in summer and fall is OPI Red–a classic. I also love Cajun Shrimp for summer!!

  258. Elyse G. says:

    I wore OPI's kiss me on my tulips all summer!

  259. Sophia says:

    my current favorite is an essie jade-like color (pale green w/ an inkling of grey!)

  260. Ann says:

    Lady Like by Essie for this weird after-Labor-Day-but-not-Fall time we are in. Seems to be a good transition color.

  261. Stefanie G says:

    my favorite fall color is CND Polish – Bloodline!

  262. Ronit says:

    My favorite is OPI– Manicurist of Seville
