Deborah Lippmann Footloose

To celebrate the remake of the 1980's movie Footloose, Deborah Lippmann created a collection of nail colors inspired by the movie.  The Footloose Collection was made exclusively for HSN, and was launched in conjunction with the movie premier.  There are a total of 4 colors, offered in 2 sets:

Almost Paradise (a playful pistachio hue) & Footloose  (a rebellious red hue); Let's Hear It For the Boy (a baby blue hue) & Dancing in the Sheets (a shimmering midnight purple hue).

As tempted as I was, I did not order any of the sets.  I wanted only wanted two colors, which happens to be only one from each of the sets.  I wasn't willing to buy both set, just for 2 colors.  But then, a lovely lady surprised me with a package and gifted me with the red from the collection.

Footloose is a vibrant red, describe as a "sheer crème".  It's definitely not sheer like a jelly, but more sheer than the average crème.  The polish applied beautifully; this was three coats because I don't really like visible nail lines.  Deborah Lippman the inspiration behind this color were the red cowboy boots Ariel wore in the movie.  I have a thing for red nail polish, so this one will fit right in with my collection.

Now about the movie remake...  Being that I grew up in the 80's, I have mixed feelings about all the recent remakes of the movies I grew up with.  My teenage years were spent watching these "classic" 80's movies, so a lot of my teenage memories are tied to them.  I like to remember my movies as is, so I'm not running out to see the updated version of Footloose.  I will eventually watch it once it's available on DVD.

Hey Hollywood... please, please, please, leave The Breakfast Club alone!
