Rockin' Nails

What do manicures and music have in common? Deborah Lippmann, the celebrity manicurist turned singing sensation.

Lippmann is manicurist to the stars, citing Meryl Streep, Mary J. Blige and Renee Zellweger as her clients. And while she loves her work as a celebrity manicurist and the Founder/CEO of her own nail care line, lippmann collection, her dream has always been to sing. In fact, it was Renee Zellweger who inspired Lippmann to pursue her dream and release her first album, Nightingale, which was very well received.

Her latest nail color collection and music album both share the same name - VINYL. The album includes jazz versions of famous rock anthems originally recorded on, you guessed it, vinyl. The album includes versions of “Satisfaction” (originally recorded by The Rolling Stones), “Message in a Bottle” (originally recorded by The Police), “Need You Tonight” (originally recorded by INXS), and “You Give Love a Bad Name” (originally recorded by Bon Jovi).

A super fun twist is that she has created nail shades for each song on the album. "Need You Tonight" is a passionate red. "Fade to Black" is a deep carbon black. "Wicked Game" is a deep, moody gunmetal, and the 80s anthem "You Give Love a Bad Name" is a super 80s neon pink.

In contrast to the classic shades of lippmann collection, Vinyl shades are big and bold, modern and edgy, just like Lippmann's singing voice. And, like Vinyl, they're naturally super shiny. They're purse-sized (.2 fl oz) and only $8.50, so you can afford to get a shade for fingers and toes. Only at select Bath & Body Works and

A great nail polish tip from Lippmann: before using, gently roll the nail polish bottle between your palms. Shaking it vigorously can cause bubbles and streaks in your finished manicure. Who knew?
