Today I have a Review for ya!
Lippmann sent me Funky Chunky to review. They asked what I might wanna take a look at, and I named a few, Funky Chunky being one of them, because it just intrigues me! Sadly, it's the only one I was sent.
I had the idea that while most think it might not look good after multiple coats( I actually don't mind it a bit like that), maybe it would look good for layering! I know Deborah Lippmann has commented that she intended this to be worn in a single coat, and while I think we can all agree that might not be the best option, I thought, well, maybe layered over a bright polish? Let's take a look!
I started out with 5 nice bright polishes:
Thumb- China Glaze "Turned up Turquoise"
Index - China Glaze "China Rogue"
Middle - Sinful Colors "Dream On"
Ring - Sally Hansen Insta-Dri "Lickety Split Lime"
Pinkie - China Glaze "Millennium"
Now, After 1 Coat of Funky Chunky:
The pinkie looks great, I think, but, where are all the sequins? My Index didn't get 1!
I think it would look AWESOME like this if 2 things were different.
1 - More Sequins
2 - Less Streaky
But, I'm not a pro applicator like some out there.
Let's try another coat shall we?
Again, the pinkie looks pretty good!
But the others, ehhh...
I think the ring finger looks like a dark pickle!
Now, let's see it on it's own:
Pinkie and Ring have 1 coat
Middle and Index have 2 coats
Thumb has 3 coats.
So basically here's my final thought. Try to get a nice even 1 coat over a metallic, it's quite nice!
Otherwise, maybe I need to thin it down with some clear to make it alittle less streaky, that way 1 coat over a bright may work.
I really like the concept of this polish! I am wondering if they went back and re-formulated this, cause alot of the other swatches I have seen of 2 or 3 coats, the nail was just packed with sequins, and my thumb at 3 coats only had 4 sequins I think. I wish I would have gotten other polishes along with this to review, cause I have heard so many great things about Lippmann. I'll pick up a few one of these days!
I plan on playing with this more, I just ran out of time the other night. I'll try a few more tricks and let you guys know how they work out.
So in closing, I think this looks good at 3 coats! Either do to a re-do with less sequins, or my poor application. I also think 1 nice even coat looks sweet over a metallic!
Try it out, you may like it!
Have a great day!
Lippmann sent me this polish, free of charge, in exchange for an HONEST review.
