THE TIP OFF: DEBORAH LIPPMANN
The master manicurist shares her tips for creating three runway-ready nail designs.
Backstage at fashion week or any major awards show, you can find manicurist Deborah Lippmann holding hands with supermodels, chart-topping songstresses, and A-list actors. She creates their nail looks with her namesake polish line, an impressive collection of crème finishes, glitters, shimmers, and more. Here are three fresh—and D.I.Y.-friendly—designs we can’t wait to get our hands on. RENEE TRILIVAS
LAYERED: “When it comes to layering, the sky is the limit!” she says. “It’s so exciting to create your own personalized look.” She suggests topping She Bop (a hot pink hue), Lilac Wine (a bright lilac shade), or Chasing Pavements (a pale gray tint)—all exclusive Sephora shades—with 99 Luftballons (also exclusive), an eye-catching pink packed with confetti-like glitter.
DUET NAIL: “That’s my term for a French manicure with two colors other than pink and white,” Lippmann explains. Instead of applying a thick stripe on the tip, Lippmann recommends applying sparingly: “A thin line across the tip makes the look more modern.” Pair two contrasting colors, like soft pink (try Before He Cheats) with a band of midnight blue (like Rolling in the Deep) on the edge.
POLKA DOT: “We did a polka dot nail a couple of seasons ago at fashion week, and so many people wanted to know how to get the look,” Lippmann says. “It’s a look that anyone can create because it’s so easy and is also very customizable.” Be sure to use a fine-tipped brush or nail dotter to draw perfect circles.
