Fashion Designer Deborah Lippmann BeautyWhat do nail polish and music have in common? Deborah Lippmann. This aspiring jazz vocalist began working as a manicurist to pay the bills while she pursued her dream of being a singer. But her little day job soon became a big-pay job when celebrities and magazine editors began clamoring for an appointment with her: Allure magazine even named Lippmann to its list of the country's top manicurists. But in spite of her newfound nail fame, Lippmann never lost sight of her love for music: With help from a celebrity clientele that includes the likes of Cher and Mariah Carey, Lippmann started designing her own shades of long-wearing nail lacquer, all named after famous songs and some custom-created for their famous singers. Every shade is utterly unique, often designed in conjunction with stars like Pat Benatar, Mary J. Blige and Zac Posen.
