Hi Deborah- 

If you had to pick your all time favorite shade, what would it be? Smiley Happy

 

Re: Live Nail Q&A with Deborah Lippmann!

Just like its hard for me to have a 'favorite' color I usually say that my favorite shade is the one I'm wearing-- My favorite collaboration of the moment is the one that just launched -- Stronger with Kelly Clarkson, a tenacious Vivacious Violet.

As we started developing this shade we had no plan for it to contain those gorgeous holographic glitters. Every collaboration is a creative PROCESS == and I love being open to see where they can go Smiley Happy

Re: Live Nail Q&A with Deborah Lippmann!

Thank you so much for the answer, Deborah!

I love hearing that it is a process, knowing that a great deal of time, effort, and energy goes into making your products makes it that much more valued in the eyes on consumers and fans of your lines because your involvement shows how invested you are to your brand and making it stand out!

Re: Live Nail Q&A with Deborah Lippmann!

Hi Deborah!

 

When I first paint my nails, my cuticles look fine. I usually push them and use an oil to maintain them, but how do I maintain them while I'm wearing polish? I notice they tend to start pushing back up and look uneven/clean. Thanks so much!

Re: Live Nail Q&A with Deborah Lippmann!

Hi Deborah what tip do you have for distributing the glitter evenly for some of your glitter polishes?

Re: Live Nail Q&A with Deborah Lippmann!

my nails look dry and brittle.  Is there anything in your line to help this? I love your products!

Re: Live Nail Q&A with Deborah Lippmann!

Hi Deborah! I love your nail polish Smiley Happy I was wondering if you knew of a way to fix nails that have been stained by nail polish. Thanks!

Re: Live Nail Q&A with Deborah Lippmann!

You must try Deborah Lippmann's On A Clear Day Ultra-Glossy Top Coat- it works wonders for helping polish to not stain your nails since it contains a UV inhibitor so polish does not discolor or fade. I love it!

Re: Live Nail Q&A with Deborah Lippmann!

Hi Deborah! I adore your polishes; they are simply the best. I would love to know how far in advance you begin working on collections? i.e. When do you start on fall, when do you start on spring? Do you usually have a cohesive idea brewing or do you just go with your creative vibe at the moment? Plus, are there any celebrities you are dying to create with? I love your purples- just picked up Stronger! Please always keep them coming. Smiley Happy <3

Re: Live Nail Q&A with Deborah Lippmann!

Oooooh Mia - that is SUCH a fun question! I will share this with everyone in my office. I'm not a "corporate" follow the rules kind of creator (imagine that Smiley Happy My inspiration comes from many places and because it is a collaborative HIGHLY CREATIVE space that we work in -- things can change on a dime in terms of our direction for a collection.

 

As we grow as a company, we are working hard to rein it in and commit to concepts earlier rather than later. But it's in constant flux. GOD BLESS MY FLEXIBLE TEAM!

Re: Live Nail Q&A with Deborah Lippmann!

Love Deborah Lippmann polishes! Excited by minis and not because I have a short attention span. Any thoughts on favorite designs with your polishes?

Re: Live Nail Q&A with Deborah Lippmann!

Hi Deborah! I've been collecting your nail polishes since I can last remember! I honestly can't wait for your line of polishes to release in Sephora stores and see what you have in store for the upcoming holidays! Smiley Happy

Re: Live Nail Q&A with Deborah Lippmann!

Hi Deborah!

Do you have any recomendations on how to make your nails stronger? My nails tend to break and split so easily.  

Re: Live Nail Q&A with Deborah Lippmann!

The matrix of the nail is just below the cuticle. The action of massaging our cuticle oil and our Rich Girl into the matrix twice a day stimulates nail growth. Use our Hard Rock as your base coat and again as your top coat. Then add one layer of our Hard Rock daily on top of your nail color until you are ready to have another manicure and begin the process again. Smiley Happy

Re: Live Nail Q&A with Deborah Lippmann!

i cant stand removing the polish off my toenails........any suggestions?

Re: Live Nail Q&A with Deborah Lippmann!

Hi Deborah! Love your glitter lacquers. Every week I redo my toes just so I can always have a different color on.

 

Could you please let us know what steps we should use for home manicures from beginning to end? My girlfriends and I love to get together and do facials and nails and we would LOVE to know how to properly do manicures. 

 

Thanks!

Re: Live Nail Q&A with Deborah Lippmann!

I have a pretty simple, easy to follow video on my website and Sephora.com.

Re: Live Nail Q&A with Deborah Lippmann!

Hi D!  Your nail polishes are simply the best.  What do you think is the hot new trend for shades now and for the fall? xo

Re: Live Nail Q&A with Deborah Lippmann!

The hot new trends for fall are all about texture in nails -- holographic, chunky glitter, and coming soon, a cool matteen silk finish for holiday. One of the shades is Red Silk Boxers, which I used it on the models of the Badgley Mischka, Richard Chai and Honor NYFW shows last February and on one of the sexiest blond movie stars of our day. I think it's HOT.

Re: Live Nail Q&A with Deborah Lippmann!

Hi Deborah,

My manicures always seem to peel off in big sheets. Is this due to the topcoat or is it the base coat?
 Thanks!

 

Re: Live Nail Q&A with Deborah Lippmann!

This happens to me all the time too! I would love to know how to fix this issue.

Re: Live Nail Q&A with Deborah Lippmann!

Hi Mia - See the above response to Krekay. Thanks!

Re: Live Nail Q&A with Deborah Lippmann!

It can be several things! I recommend making sure that your nails are smooth and completely dry before you apply base coat. Try to apply less polish than you are currently using. My colors are pretty highly pigmented so that might help. I recommend trying to place the brush down the nail in 3 strokes. Another key is waiting a full 2 minutes between each layer of lacquer that you apply.
