Deborah Lippmann Groove is in the Heart

January 26, 2013

Deborah Lippmann Groove is in the Heart ($17) is new from Deborah Lippmann for spring. It’s one of those bright baby pinks that makes you feel happy just looking at it. If you look closely at the bottle, you can see tiny silvery sparkles, however on the nail it applies like a non-shimmery cream. The coverage is smooth but it does require two coats for full coverage. I had this applied with a professional manicure using Deborah Lippmann’s base coat and OPI’s top coat and it has lasted quite well. I’m on day five right now and there have been no chips or tip wear.

Swatched with two coats, on me it pulls a bit warmish, but I consider it more of a neutral pink:

Groove is in the Heart is a quite similar to other bright baby pinks. The differences are slight compared to others but the main difference is that Groove is in the Heart pulls more peach. The two most similar shades I found were Chanel May (more rose/pink) and Dior Rosy Bow (also more pink, but not quite as rose/mauve as May). I wasn’t able to get good swatch comparisons due to the cloudy weather here.

Bottom line: thumbs up. I purchased mine at Neiman Marcus, the spring collection should be available at Nordstrom, Neimans and most Deborah Lippmann locations now.
Have you checked out the spring collection yet?

  • Hi Sabrina, What a cheery pink! It seems like it would add the perfect touch of spring to February's still wintry wardrobes

  • Wow!!! These nail colors are so pretty. Love the different shades of pink for I find them classy and girly. I wanna grab one of these, may be the groove in the heart. Thanks for letting us know. Love it!

  • Such a cheery pink, I agree!!! It looks lovely on you. I recently am a convert of DL due to your blog post about "Modern Love." It is the perfect mauve. This one, sadly, looks too similar with Chanel May which I already owned. Do you think they differ enough to justify owning both?

    • I think Chanel May and the Deborah Lippmann are similar enough that you don't need both. The Chanel applies a bit easier too.

  • I'm not a pink polish gal, but this one looks beautiful on you. Love that first shot too, somehow the polish goes so well with the print in the back (what is that exactly?).

  • DeboraLippman is everywhere! I want to try one so bad…

    I absolutely adore all the other colors below too… Chanel May… and Dusty bow Dior <3
