Deborah Lippmann Nail Color in On The Beach

I’ve never tried a Deborah Lippmann polish before. I was fortunate to find this one at the Cosmetics Market for $2.

It’s a true story. I really did pay $2 for this. 🙂


On the beach is a gorgeous bright, ocean blue creme.

It’s like a cousin to Revlon’s Surf’s Spray in terms of tone.




As you can tell from the photos, it’s sheer in some spots although it is mostly opaque. I can make it work if I use three thin coats.

I like this. I think I will keep it. But it does cost around $18 at full retail value. For the retail price, I think you can find better.

  1. Too bad it’s not immediately opaque. The color is nice though.

    Color is gorgeous but not opaque and even is not impressive when you pay so much for a nailpaint. Luckily you did not pay taht much….i wish it was better…
