deBBY ~ 80 and Finger Paints ~ Art you Wondering?


deBBY ~ 80
Ocean blue/grean/teal, almost metallic

I received this pretty polish in a swap with sweet Elsa from Like a Candy Shop. I’m fond of colours that remind me of the ocean. I don’t know why, that’s just the way it is. That means that I have quite a few polishes that look pretty much like this one. That’s one of the beautiful things about swapping: I wouldn’t have picked this myself, because I have quite a few in this colour range. But little did I know that this polish is very different to the others in my collection. It’s way more vibrant and pretty!!

The formula is ok. The coats go on fine, but leave a few brush strokes. It’s totally opaque in two coats. And man, it’s vibrant! Let me say it again. Vibrant. That *is* the word for this :)

Here it is; two coats, no top coat:


I didn’t mind the brush strokes very much. I knew I was going to use this as underwear for a glitter I bought in a blog sale: Finger Paints’ “Art You Wondering”, which is fine teal and green glitter in a clear base. The application felt fine, but I can see on the pictures that the brush pulls a bit on the glitter, leaving more glitter on the tips than on the rest of the nail. It wasn’t really visible in real life, so I guess it doesn’t really matter :)

One coat of “Art you Wondering?” over the deBBY 80.



I really like this, but I wanted more! You should know me by now :D
I had stamping in mind, but since I was working on something (from home), I couldn’t be bothered pulling out the stamping gear. So I found some stickers I bought a long time ago, and applied a star on each nail. Then I topped it all with a layer of Poshé top coat, and here’s what it ended up looking like:


I like this!! It probably won’t last very long, because I can feel the stars poking out from underneath the top coat, and I am a picker!
This is the first time I wear stickers on my nails, btw. It probably won’t be the last.


Opacity: 8/10
Colour, prettiness: 7/10
Durability: 7/10
Value for money: 8/10
Overall: 7.5/10
Buy again: No

  8. Oh, this deBBy polish is amazing, lucky Italian girls to have access to them! =)) I own one too because my cousin Raggio di Luna sent it to me and it's beautiful blue glitter, which I love!
    Finger Paints glitter looks amazing over it and those stars pop up some fun! Great manicure, I love it! =))

    1. I actually saw deBBy polishes last time I was in Germany, so it's fortunately not limited to just Italian girls :D Hooray for that!
      Thanks for the kind words, you're too sweet! <3
