Issues with Deborah Lippmann's Waking Up In Vegas

It's times like this when I feel really stupid and regret spending so much money on premium nail polishes.  I'm a grey polish lover, so as a grey polish lover, buying DL's Waking Up In Vegas was a no brainer.  I've had this issue with this particular polish for months now, and I'm just fed up and must vent about it.
I purchased this at Zappos.com when I was in the states for $16 (thank god I didn't buy it here for £18), and it was $16 too much.

If it was just a matter of me shaking the bottle, then no problem, but I shook the bottle vigoriously and I still have a mustard yellow separation still floating at the top.

These pictures are night time pictures too, so you can just imagine how noticable the yellow substance is floating at the top of my bottle.
I have only had one other polish separate like this and that was my Chanel Khaki Vert, but at least with the Chanel, the colour that floats on the top of the bottle is a blue, not this ugly mustard/muddy yellow...yuck.

There's not much I can do about it, but honestly if I knew this beforehand, I wouldn't have spent the money to purchase this polish.  So if you are thinking about buying this, you have been warned. 

Has anyone else had this issue?


  1. I have the same issue! It's a known issue with this particular polish - WUIV separates like a mother. Even when I bought it, I saw the display was already separating, but I still bought it anyway because I love the color so much. I'm so sorry yours doesn't mix well when you shake it! Normally for me I can shake it, and about 90% of the yellow mixes in (but you can def still see a tiny bit of separation). If you find a trick to slow down the separating, let us know!!

  2. Im just going to store it upside down haha
