As my obesession with nail polish has grown I have become a huge fan and follower of Deborah Lippmann's work. My nail polish collection of hers has grown immensely and I don't see it stopping anytime soon. So with someone who has been a fan for some time I was surprised at how many new things I learned about the manicurist this morning while purchasing her new holiday color 'Boom Boom Pow'.
1. She's a jazz singer. Nope, not just a silly hobby. She performs and has cds. I just went through and sampled her music and her newest album Vinyl has been added to my playlist. Her voice is gorgeous and I wish I could see her perform in New York City in November.
2. She is from Scottsdale, Arizona. I am living in her hometown where she grew up.
3. It's her birthday this weekend and she wasn't wearing her 'Happy Birthday' nail polish.
4. She has a national campaign for her 'Across the Universe' nail polish that you can be apart of. Just purchase her new blue green glitter polish and take picture of yourself and nails. E-mail it to Deborah Lippmann and you'll be featured on her website while she also donates a portion of proceeds.
I wasn't able to receive a free polish change this morning as I already had a shellac manicure recently but I couldn't resist trying my new color. Layering is part of Deborah Lippmann's philosophy and 'Boom boom pow' gave my manicure a whole new look.
