I had high hopes for Deborah Lippmann's Let's Hear It For The Boy. I do love the color and you'll see why in a moment :-). The formula on this one was a little to watery and the brush wasn't able to control the lacquer. I did manage to clean it up as much as possible to get some good pictures for you guys, This one is tough to review because I have fallen in love with DL's lacquer and I couldn't imagine writing a bad review.
My true and honest opinion is that I wouldn't recommend you buy this. I say that because it is not up to par with the other DL polishes I have tried. I do love the color and once it was on and my top coat (Seche Vite) did it's job, the manicure looked great! However, the overall formula here wasn't great.
Take a look:
Both pictures above show two coats of Let's Hear It For The Boy and a top coat. It took a while to do clean up after I had applied the lacquer. This manicure is gorgeous, though, I must admit.
To spruce it up a bit I added dots! I won a set of dotting tools recently on Facebook and decided to put them to work. I added dots of Julep's Niecy and Anne.

Earlier in this post, I said you would understand why I like this color and here's why. In a previous post, I compared Julep's Jessica to Zoya's Kristen (Here.) Doesn't Let's Hear It For The Boy and Jessica look really similar? Yep! From left to right: Let's Hear It For The Boy , Jessica and Kristen.
I thought it needed to be pointed out. :-)
I guess I should be finished getting polishes in this color family.
What do you think of Let's Hear It For The Boy? Do you own it? Was the formula the same for you? Please share. I love to read your comments.
Thank you for reading,
