Lippmann Collection Marquee Moon

Morning! Weekend is here finally!
I hope you all had a wonderful week!

Today, I have Marquee Moon for you! Metallic silver base with silver hexagonal sequins.

From Deborah Lippmann:

Marquee Moon was created for the genius designers RODARTE's fall fashion collection and worn on the runway. Each nail is supposed to look different. You might get one 'sequin' on one nail and 10 'sequins' on the next nail. That is the way it is supposed to come out of the bottle so dont TRY to make the 'sequins'' come out and look the same on each nail. Deconstructed is the look on both of these shades [talking about Marqueen Moon and Funky Chunky].


I know many did not like Funky Chunky, but I'm glad to say that Marquee Moon is nothing like it! The silver sequins in Marquee Moon are bigger than in Funky Chunky, and there are a lot less [in terms of quantity] in the bottle. This means that the brush doesn't pick up as many hexagonal glitter so application is a lot better, I find. It was also easier to control. You don't have to worry about where the sequins are, or if there's too many sequins on top of the others, because the chances are that you won't have that many on your nails. As you can see from the first picture above, my right ring finger was sequin-less.

Funky chunky:
Also, since the sequins are bigger, a top coat doesn't change the look. With Funky Chunky, I thought it was better to wear it without a top coat.

If you didn't like Funky Chunky, I think you should give Marquee Moon a chance. It looks very nice in person, and it only took 2 coats to achieve bottle color, whereas with FC, after 2 coats, it was still a bit sheer.

What do you think? Did you like Funky Chunky and will you try/have you tried Marquee Moon?


  1. Marquee Moon looks awesome, I love the sparse huge glitters!

  2. Marquee Moon looks so pretty. This is the first time I've seen it and you're right, I like it better than Funky Chunky. It looks really gorgeous on your nails too.

    I also like the non symmetrical approach, it's different!

  3. Moon is lovely. Chunky just looks plain wrong - like a polish you kept for 15 years and applied in the dark. Only worse....

  4. Thank you Gildedangel and Michèle! I really like Marquee Moon! Very unique!

    Jaljen-hahaha I can't help but laugh at your comment!!! I actually thought I liked Chunky at first... looking back now, I don't know what I was thinking! It just looks weird!
