deborah lippmann Chasing Pavements

deborah lippmann Chasing Pavements coverIf I was the betting type I’d bet Deborah Lippmann is an Adele fan.

A few weeks ago I reviewed a polish from deborah lippmann called Rolling In The Deep. And today I have Chasing Pavements!

This, along with She Bop, Lilac Wine and 99 Luftbaloons, Chasing Pavements is a Sephora exclusive deborah lippmann polish to celebrate Sephora carrying deborah lippmann polish.

Chasing Pavements is a light, dove grey creme. I’ve really been into these kinds of grays this fall. They’re a nice change from the grays of season’s past that had a dirty or brown undertone.

The formula is, per usual, fantastic. I used two coats in all my swatches.

I tried to find a dupe in my collection (as deborah lippmann polishes are on the expensive side) but couldn’t find one. The closest I could come up with was Cover Girl Silver Lining.

There are swatches under the jump!

  1. Such a beautiful shade. Reminds me of Maybelline Color Show Audacious Asphalt, but more brown based (and I’m sure this has a formula that’s 100x better!)

  2. Gorgeous color! What about NYC Sidewalkers as a (close) dupe? It’s just slightly darker and much cheaper, with a decent, dry-fast formula.

      1. You inspired me to pull out Sidewalkers to put on today, and it definitely is darker. Kind of like a wet cement color while this pretty one is more dry cement.

  3. Ok so you are going to think I am a total weirdo for writing this but anyway. Did you ever see that episode of friends where Joey finds his “identical hand twin” in Vegas? Well I swear you are my identical hand twin! I always thought your nail beds looked really similar to mine, and now that you are squaring your nails I’m like “IDENTICAL HAND TWIN!”

    Check out my blog and tell me if you think so! It’s at (I promise I am not spamming you!)

  4. I know this is an older post, but I love this shade. I already have Zoya “Dove” but this is appearing lighter on my monitor, with maybe a touch of blue. If you have Dove, I’d love to know if they are pretty much identical or if Pavements is different. Thanks!

    1. I don’t have Dove but from what I can tell from swatches you are right; Chasing Pavements is lighter and a bit more blue.
