Lippmann Collection – Boom Boom Pow


Last winter, Modern Mix Vancouver featured Lippmann Collection’s Marquee Moon, a glittery, silver nailpolish color reminiscent of a disco ball crossed with holiday tinsel.  This year, just in time for the 2010 holiday season, try out Boom Boom Pow, a luxurious nail lacquer with an explosion of glimmering 24-karat gold flecks!  A little bit too flashy for everyday wear, but perfect for a fashionable winter party. It’s apparently inspired by Kate Moss, but I think the Black Eyed Peas may have been an inspiration as well!  Boom Boom Pow and other nailpolish in the Lippmann collection retail for $24 at Murale at Oakridge Centre and are “big three free” of Toluene, Formaldehyde and Dibutyl Phthalate.
