The Lippman Collection
I love Deborah Lippman. I have met her a couple of times at events and she is hilarious, nice, talented, lovely and a little naughty! I love her products. I own many of her nail polishes which are awesome. Her nail polish remover (called The Stripper) is my favorite. It smells of lavendar. She says she made it smell that way so that when she is doing runway shows and doing the nails of many a model that it smells relaxing like aromatherapy and not assaulting and industrial like most nail polish removers.
Deborah is a trained jazz singer, so most of her polishes are named after fun jazz songs such as Bitches Brew, Makin' Whoopie, and Lady Is A Tramp.
Deborah also has a line of polishes she made in collaboration with celebrities. Kelly Ripa made one called Whatever Lola Wants- a shimmery lavendar, in honor of her daughter Lola. Mary J. Blige made one called No More Drama-a very wearable beige, and Sarah Jessica Parker made one called Sarah Smile-a very light, natural pink. Sarah Smile is one of my personal favorites.
Deborah Lippman is a manicurist to the stars. She does the nails of many people featured on magazine covers. One time she told me about the Vanity Fair cover she did. It was for the Kings of Hollywood. Deborah was telling me about giving manicures to all these men: Her favorite was Hugh Grant. She said the massage portion of Hugh's manicure was really long. AMEN sister!
One of my favorite products in the Lippman Collection is the Rich Girl hand cream with SPF 25. As a redhead I constantly have to be aware of sun exposure, and you know, they say the hands are the first place to show age. In recent years I have become obsessed with SPF on my hands. I keep a tube of Rich Girl in the car, in my gym bag and in my purse at all times. I love it!
