It all began with a song. Well, that’s not entirely true. But Deborah Lippmann did begin working as a nail artist in Arizona to support her other dream of becoming a jazz singer. Lippmann’s clients began spreading the word about her amazing manicures and soon she was on speed dial for celebrities and editors around the country. In 1998 Lippmann mixed “Satin Doll” for Mariah Carey to wear for the Oscars and realized the next step was creating her own collection of lacquers.
From glam shades like “Bad Romance,” a dark eggplant inlaid with pink glitter, to the exceedingly well-behaved putty-colored “Waking Up in Vegas,” Lippmann has hues for all. Her treatment products, from creams to scrubs, are just as thoughtfully formulated as her polishes and have a cult following of their own.
Lippmann’s products are all free of toluene, formaldehyde, and DBP, which means they’re extra good for you.
Rich Girl hand and cuticle cream is lush and moisturizing without being greasy, while The Stripper is the most gentle polish remover we’ve ever used (has a pretty lavender scent too!). For color, she can do no wrong but we’re partial to Fashion, a pretty taupe, and Bad Romance.
