About Deborah


Deborah Lippmann is the go-to celebrity manicurist for the most fashionable magazines and renowned fashion houses from Vogue, InStyle, W, Vanity Fair and Elle to Donna Karan, Rodarte, Narciso Rodriguez, Marchesa and Versace to name a few. After years of experience in the industry, her eponymous line of lacquers and treatments for nails, hands and feet is as coveted as her incredible talent.

Deborah’s success as one of the most sought-after manicurists in the world, as well
as an innovative entrepreneur, has an interesting origin in her passion for and
pursuit of music. Her first love was music, and with dreams of becoming a jazz
singer, Deborah belted out sultry tunes in smoky clubs by night while working
various jobs by day. Eventually, Deborah enrolled in cosmetology school where she
discovered a hidden talent and her second love – nails.
Living in Arizona at the time, her manicure chair quickly became a favorite of
Phoenix socialites due to her charismatic personality and refined expertise. Setting
her sights on something bigger, Deborah headed to New York City. After working her
magic on the hands of an Allure magazine editor, Deborah’s career took off.
Dubbed “one of the best manicurists in the country” by Allure and a “mega
manicurist” by Vogue, Deborah found herself busier than ever, booking magazine
shoot after magazine shoot and celebrity after celebrity.
Working closely with some of the biggest names among celebrities, editors, fashion
designers and models, Deborah quickly identified the need for a diverse range of
nail colors and luxury care products, which was missing in the market. It was at that
moment that Deborah set out to create her own line of high-quality nail lacquers
and treatments with her unique fashion point of view. Deborah has since
collaborated with Sarah Jessica Parker, Cher, Narciso Rodriguez, Kelly Clarkson and
other A-list celebrities in the fashion, music and entertainment world to create a
series of signature nail shades.
Now with an assortment of over seventy long-wearing shades, along with specialty treatments for nails, hands and feet, Deborah Lippmann nail products are frequently featured in top magazines, spotted backstage at fashion shows and adorn the world’s most notable women. Kate Winslet, Reese Witherspoon, Renee Zellweger and Penelope Cruz were all manicured by Deborah and wore her nail colors when they accepted their Oscars. In 2010, Deborah was honored as Nail Visionary at Cosmoprof Worldwide, the beauty industry’s most respected trade show – her authority in Nail was undeniably established. With the explosive growth of the brand and further leveraging her color expertise, Deborah has most recently introduced a full line of long-wearing, moisturizing Lipstick hues, perfect complements to her iconic, fashion-forward nail lacquers.
