This month marks the 10th anniversary of Wicked. To celebrate the occasion, Deborah Lippmann released a limited edition 3 piece Wicked nail lacquer set.
The set includes 3 mini nail polishes; Popular, Defying Gravity and One Short Day. All 3 shades are inspired by the magic of Oz and are, of course, named after original songs from the musical.
Not only are the bottles adorable, so is the packaging of this set.
I quite like all 3 polishes in this set but I’m not ready to say they are definite must have. That is unless you’re a Wicked fan in which case you need this!
Below the jump are swatches and my thoughts on all three polishes.
This set is available at Sephora and is $29.
Popular: This polish was inspired by Glinda and her gorgeous pink gown. Honestly, I didn’t think I was going to like this polish. It seemed kind of blah in the bottle. But once I got it on my nails I really loved it. While the formula is quite (ok painfully) thin, it gives the polish depth. I used four coats in my swatches and the nail line was still slightly visible.
Defying Gravity: This song always makes me think of Glee. But so not the point of this set! Defying Gravity is easily the most infamous song from Wicked and this polish was inspired by Elphaba. It’s a green creme but a very flattering green creme that’s just slightly different from the rest of the green cremes in my collection. It reminds me a bit of OPI Jade Is The New Black.
The formula is lovely though a bit on the thin side. I used three coats in my swatches.
One Short Day: This is the most unique of the polishes in this set and the one that is inspired by The Emerald City itself.
One Short Day contains chunky emerald green and some sparse slightly smaller gold glitter suspended in a deep green jelly base. While I do think this polish could definitely be used on its own I added one coat of One Short Day over Defying Gravity and really loved the outcome.
Overall, I really do love all the polishes included in this set though other than One Short Day I don’t think they’re entirely unique. That being said, if you’re a Wicked fan (or if you’re looking for a gift for a Wicked fan) this is a fabulous little set 🙂
