I won’t lie. The morning may have started off a little rusty after a little dinner session with Katie Cazorla the night before. I totally blame Katie. She is a bad influence. However, I had no time to be rusty because Day 2 of Cosmoprof North America kicked off bright and early at 8:30am.
Day 2 was all about brands. I wanted to see some brands, experience some of the products and get a glimpse of new releases. Nails seemed to take centre stage on this day and I will be doing a separate post to show just all the amazing stuff we can expect to see over the coming months.
Manicurist extraordinaire, business maven and surprisingly talented singer, Deborah Lippmann, was extremely kind to offer up her morning to sit with us beauty bloggers to discuss her new collection. If you aren’t familiar with the Lippmann Collection of nail lacquers than you are missing out big time. They are just beautiful!
Deborah talked us through her inspiration behind how she comes up with colours, and it is crazy. Here are some things I learnt that I never knew.
- Deborah started out in life wanting to be a Jazz singer. She still sings and has released an album, but it is more of a recreational focus.
- All the names of her nail lacquers name are actually names of songs.
- She will often have to create colours for celebrities or fashion designers based on their outfits … sometimes with only hours notice.
- All her lacquers are 3 free (free from Formaldehyde, Toluene and DBP) and not tested on animals.
Aside from all that, the most refreshing thing about Deborah is how down to earth she really is. She is entertaining, amusing and genuinely sweet. Go girl!
