Break 4 Love

deborah lippman break 4 love swatch and review

What happens when an iconic fashion and art photographer pairs up with one of the most sought-after manicurists in the world? Pretty things happen. “Break 4 Love” (part of the Creme collection) is my first ever Deborah Lippmann nail lacquer. I just couldn’t resist buying it while on my last trip to Sephora, I swear that it was just sitting there, calling my name.  Described as a “bubble gum techno babe”, this ultra pretty and girl-y shade is perfect for summer.


With a beautiful, treatment-enriched and highly pigmented color (the formula is infused with biotin, green tea extract, and aucoumea) this lacquer has a mighty luxurious feel. “Break 4 Love” has a beautifully smooth and glossy finish, it dries quickly and so far it hasn’t chipped (I’ve been wearing it since Monday).

Created with Inez van Lamsweerde “Break 4 Love” was inspired by the flawless manicures of the ladies in the TV drama “Mad Men”. Need another reason to give this lacquer a try? Part of the proceeds will be donated to Every Mother Counts campaign.

    • Aww thank you so much Sophie, I love this shade! I actually just got my nails back to looking normal. I’ve had gel manicure done a couple of months ago and after I had it removed at the salon (by basically scratching the gel off the nail surface) they were so brittle and weak. I’m so happy they’re back to looking nice, I can actually take nice, close-up pictures of them now ;) <3

  • I’ve never tried anything from this brand before but the shades always look stunning! This one is particularly pretty, I reckon it’s the perfect pink. Also, how fab are your nails? They’re the perfect shape! x
