Deborah Lippmann For True Blood Sookie Sookie Set: Swatches & Review

I've got the second of the two sets I got from Deborah Lippmann for True Blood to show you today: the Sookie Sookie set! This set features two colors inspired by True Blood's main character, Sookie Stackhouse.

First up, there's Human Nature, a putty creme. It's a pretty color, even if it's not terribly unique. I have a lot of colors like this one since I'm partial to putty polishes. Below is three coats.


Fairydust is where the real fun starts. It's a milky base with an orange-gold iridescent shimmer and it's absolutely gorgeous! Although it doesn't look like much in the bottle, the shimmer really comes alive on the nail and looks much more beautiful in person. Below is one coat of Fairydust over Human Nature. Even over a neutral base, the sparkle in Fairydust still packs a punch.


I didn't fall head over heels for this duo like I did the Forsaken Set but it's still a really lovely pair of polishes. Worn together, Human Nature and Fairy Dust compliment each other perfectly. I'm sure you could come up with all kinds of fun combos with Fairy Dust too!

For 25 bucks, you get two full-sized by polishes, which is a nice deal--by DL standards, at least! ;)If you get just one thing from Deborah Lippmann's True Blood collaboration, I'd make it the Forsaken Set. (It's sold out on HSN right now, but apparently it will be given a wide release in November.) But if you already have Forsaken or you prefer more neutral shades, give the Sookie Sookie Set a try!

    1. I know, I was surprised how much Fairy Dust transforms the base! I thought it would just add a little shimmer but it really does make a huge difference!

  4. I love fairy dust, but I would have thought there might have been a bright red...but that's just me!

    1. Now that you mention it, it is a bit odd there's not a true red in the entire True Blood collab! How strange!
