My Experience with Deborah Lippmann Terra Nova Creme Nail Color:
Terra Nova by Deborah Lippmann is a warm crème nail colour. It is a rich classic creamy shade that is easily wearable during day and night both. This warm shade offers full coverage and, in my opinion, is wearable in all seasons. This shade is good for official, occasional and regular wear. This one is fade resistant, long lasting and does not chip. As advised by the company, applying a protective base and top coats give a rich and even colour. However I am too lazy to apply base coat or top coat.
In my opinion, this is a rich creamy shade and two coats give an opaque look to the nails. Terra Nova stays easily for a week without fading or chipping; however it needs time to dry. It gives an even smooth texture and a glossy shine to my nails. Terra Nova can be described as a warm camel brown or a dijon mustard shade. This shade tends to lean towards yellow or brown depending on our skin tone. On my moderately fair skin, this shade looks like a toffee frappuccino coffee from Starbucks.
The colour is lovely and the formula is an absolute perfection for the best manicured effect. This is a unique shade, which is neutral and warm. The fact that Deborah Lippmann nail lacquers do not contain any harmful ingredients and is a cruelty free brand inclines me to buy these lovely nail lacquers. All the more, I am in love with their creamy variety of shades.
