When I first saw this summer 2011 color come out, I knew I was going to love it. I loved how it has this really beautiful balance of both blue and purple. I had been meaning to pick it up for months now, but just recently got around to it. And I’m not disappointed at all.
I will throw in the disclaimer that my camera did (like it does with all blurples) made this look more blue than it actually is. Not drastically, but noticeable to me. I’m sorry. It sucks, I know.
I Know What Boys Like (fun name) has this harmonious balance of blue and purple. Although it’s basically a medium toned blurple creme, it’s not boring at all. It’s periwinkle-ish, but with a punch. The color is so interesting naturally. Is it purple? Is it blue? I will say that on me, it does lean more blue, but not by much. It’s feminine and pretty, but has a uniqueness to it from the blend of colors. It’s really cool.
The first coat of this polish did not go on so great, but by the second one it looked absolutely perfect. It was very saturated, smooth, and shiny. I only needed two coats. It’s one of ever popular half creme half jelly formulas. It also had a good drying time and wore decently on me.
Where to Buy: Nordstrom’s / Neiman Marcus / DeborahLippmann.com / $ 16
What are your thoughts? Do you like this blurple? Or does it not look that special to you? How did you feel about the rest of DL’s Summer 2011 collection? I liked all the colors for sure.
