The Deborah Lippmann Staccato Collection really reminds me of spring. But, instead of the usual creamy pastels, there’s a little twist – black glitter in the mix!
Being a music fan and having played several instruments (piano, flute, clarinet, saxophone, etc.), I like the concept of this collection.
A staccato, as you may know, is a type of musical articulation that’s short and expressive. In notation, a staccato note has a dot below or above it. I always imagined that this dot was like a beauty mark for musical notes. 😉 And when I think of staccatos, I get the mental image of an exclamation mark because that’s the drama that staccatos create.
Although all 3 shades in the Deborah Lippmann Staccato Collection are pretty, the mint and pink ones caught my eye first.
There are 3 shades in the Deborah Lippmann Staccato Collection:
- I’m Not Edible
- Polka Dots and Moonbeams
- Rockin’ Robin
Here’s the official press release sent to me by PR:
STACCATO – Simply Delicious!
A New Innovative Formula for Spring 2013
Deborah Lippmann takes glitter to another level once again with an unexpected juxtaposition, combining black glitter with traditional soft pastel hues. Staccato is a trend-in-the-making with an innovative finish available in three deliciously energizing shades reminiscent of your favorite cotton candy, oreo and mint chocolate chip ice-creams!
The collection introduces I’m Not Edible, a panicked pink staccato, Polka Dots And Moonbeams, a sprightly black and white staccato and Rockin’ Robin, a mint mayhem staccato. These shades offer the perfect balance of femininity with a rich crème base and a jazzed-up edginess with the speckled black glitter.
“When creating this formula, I was thinking of ways to make black glitter wearable. I like how the glitter pops with a crème base, and I love that we took very wearable spring shades and gave them more pizzazz – even a bit of an edge,” said Deborah.

Which of these shades caught your eye first? If you could only own one Deborah Lippmann nail polish, which would it be? Do you wear more pastels in the spring?
