People We Love | Deborah Lippmann

Nov 29, 2017

When trying to capture just how in-demand celebrity manicurist Deborah Lippmann is, it’s easier to name who she hasn’t worked with than who she has worked with. As the go-to for the most renowned names in fashion including Vogue, Vanity Fair, and InStyle to name a few, she also works with top talent in the entertainment industry including Reese Witherspoon, Kate Winslet, and Amy Adams. These accolades are just the tip of a very tall iceberg.

Over fifteen years ago, Deborah set out to bring her eponymous collection of lacquers and treatments for nails, hands, and feet to the masses – launching her own line carried at Sephora, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, and many other retailers including her site DeborahLippmann.com. We were giddy when the guru of nail design and care agreed to answer our questions for a very special People We Love feature.

I wanted to create Deborah Lippmann nail polishes and lacquers because…
When I first launched my brand, there wasn’t a full nail brand available. You could get great colors from other luxury brands, but you couldn’t also buy a base coat, topcoat, cuticle remover, buffer, file, polish remover, etc. I saw the opportunity, long before it was trendy, to create a polish formula that was safe, healthy, and nontoxic. It was important to remove ingredients that were potentially harmful, but also important for the formula to be long-wearing. We are 7-free and it’s always been our goal from the beginning to be as healthy as possible, while staying on the cusp of new innovations. 

The names of each nail polish comes from/is inspired by…
Every polish is actually named after a song title. As a singer, it was the perfect way to marry my two passions. I felt strongly that the names should evoke a feeling rather than a specific shade because we all see color differently. Whether you know the song or not, the names are just fun.

I was most excited to see Deborah Lippmann nail polish worn by…
Honestly where do I begin—Cher, Lady Gaga, OPRAH, Meryl Streep!

My favorite color for this holiday season is…
I love the holidays because it’s a special time of year when anything goes and self-expression really comes out. WOW is a stunning silver chrome that is perfect for holiday festivities. Reds are very popular during the holidays, but Venus in Furs, a beautiful deep berry, offers a sophisticated new spin on a classic shade.

My favorite holiday tradition is…
Christmas caroling (of course!) and spending time with family and friends. 

If I weren’t the founder of Deborah Lippmann, I would be…
Singing professionally full-time. After graduating with a degree in music, I started my career as a Jazz singer, a passion of mine that I still do today. I grew up in Arizona and one day I decided I could either be a big fish in a little pond, or go for it in NYC to follow my dream. Ironically when I came to NYC to audition for Broadway, my manicure career took off! Stay tuned it could still happen…

The most exciting celebrity I’ve “manicured”…
It’s so hard to choose just one person – I work with so many incredible women (and men) and I still feel blessed each and every time a someone chooses to work with me and wear my polish. George CLOONEY is always a highlight. 

One quick nail tip everyone should know is…
Hydrating daily is key, especially during the colder months. One of the biggest problems women have is that their nails, cuticles, and hands are extremely dry. Think of your nails and hands like your face. It wouldn’t occur to most women to wash their face and not apply a moisturizer, but they wash their hands over and over and don't apply hand lotion. Keep a hand lotion that hydrates and protects your skin at every sink in your home, at your office desk, and in your purse. Easy access is key because when adding a step to any routine, often, out of sight means out of mind. 

The three polish shades no one should live without are…
Brand New DayLady Is A TrampDark Side Of The Moon.

My favorite spot in NYC to hang out during the winter is…
Soho House is so chic and Equinox…no better place to spend time when it’s chilly outside.
