The Lippmann Collection

Two months ago, celebrity manicurist Deborah Lippmann launched her own signature line of nail lacquer and treatment products, called, appropriately enough, Lippmann Collection. There are 27 great shades, and 6 nail treatments. We chose 6 of the 27 shades that struck our fancy and played. Not only are the colors wonderful, the texture of the nail polish is smooth, the polish is very easy to apply, it dries fast, and the lacquer lasts.

We loved the following colors, from left to right:

My Old Flame – a gorgeous deep blood red. Sort of Joan Crawford ‘40’s style. Very saucy.

Nefertiti – a superb fine golden shade. Just right. Not brassy, but gets you noticed.

Girl Talk – a lovely sheer pink with an opalescent glaze. It makes your toes look like the inside of a beautiful sea shell.

Secret Love – a subtly silvered dusty rose. The shade reminded us of the ashes of roses dress in The Thorn Birds.

Stardust 2000 – a millennium platinum frost that's just ultra ultra.

In the bottle is:

It’s Delovely – Our top favorite! A clean gilded coral red. We are totally coral obsessed these days over here at Fashion Finds.

The Lippmann Collection can be found at Henri Bendel’s, Sephora, Zitomer in Manhattan, and Fred Segal Essentials in Beverly Hills. Call 888-929-9950, or visit the site at:

Guess who? Face Stockholm.
