Product Review: Deborah Lippmann’s “Take the ‘A’ Train” from the New York Marquee Collection

Take the A Train

Buying this nail polish was a certainly interesting. I love gray right now, and I was thrilled to get a chance to try my first DL nail polish. The Cadillac of nail polish, I thought it would be a good investment to buy the best, since I’ve never actually finished a nail polish bottle, before. Given that, this bottle will probably last me 10 years. I’m not sure how often I’ll use it, in those ten years, though.

Look and Wear

This nail polish chipped off in big sheets, there I said it. I’m disappointed, yes, but I think this is pretty typical of the polished metal type finishes. It’s as if the finish makes the polish inflexible and brittle. The silver lining on my cloud is that it’s lasted two weeks on my toes.

I apologize for foot grossness

In the picture, you can see that it’s a really polished, modern color. If you’re looking for a silver pedicure, this polish is fine. On my pale skin, it looks pretty great, but I can see it working for all skin tones, especially those with cool undertones.


The reason I wanted to try DL polishes was their claim to be cruelty free and 5-free. You can read my article about 5-free polishes here. They often include nail strengthening ingredients like green tea extract, too.

Last Words

Overall, this is a good toe nail polish, but I don’t have the patience to touch up often enough to make it a decent manicure for me. It’s a shame too, because I love the color.

Rating: 2.5/5
