Do Ya Think I’m Sexy, Glamorous Life
Deborah Lippmann Holiday 2011 Collection
The holidays are a time to feel good; even in New York people are a little cheerier! So it seemed only natural to create a collection of holiday colors that celebrate the spirit of the season. Each color has something joyful, from large flecks of gorgeous glinting glitter or a magnificent metallic finish that shimmers off the nail. Go ahead, play with these shades and let them add to the joy of the season.
We have seen so many large sequins in fashion I wanted to make the most full-on gold ever. SHAKE YOUR GROOVE THING is all large sequined glitter in gold with nothing but a clear base. It’s holiday in a bottle!
I did my one woman show at the famous NYC Feinsteins earlier this year and I wore a ‘couture’ red sequin Jessica Rabbit gown. Since I can’t wear that dress daily I decided to create, DO YA THINK I’M SEXY?, a color we could all wear all holiday long. We even used the shade in the hottest fall runway show Rodarte. Talk about feeling sexy when you are wearing nail color!
Lying on the beach and looking up at the stars gave me the idea for this soft but shimmering shade, STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN. Made from all large glitter, it is modern and fairy princess all at the same time.
Disco is back! I have never lost my love for disco. Believe it or not I was the Arizona state disco dancing champion. I was inspired to create I LOVE THE NIGHTLIFE ($18) by the huge disco ball that was prominent in every night club back in the day. Clear base filled with large particles of graphite glitter. Edgy and cool.
I’ve been obsessed with a rose gold Rolex watch and since I haven’t received one in my Xmas stocking I decided the next best thing would be to wear the color on my nails. It has taken me 3 years to get the luxurious finish in the shade GLAMOROUS LIFE.
GOOD GIRL GONE BAD is a rich, chic sophisticated holiday shade. Dark berry with just a hint of gold shimmer— just enough to catch the light. — Deborah Lippmann

Bobbi Brown Pretty Powerful 2.0
Last year, Bobbi Brown launched a fantastic campaign called Pretty Powerful, which was a campaign that focused on real women who aren’t retouched beyond recognition. Amazing women, from friends, co-workers, to celebrities that Bobbi Brown has met in her real life–all to show that there isn’t one definition of beauty. There was so much success last year, they’re doing 2.0 this year. They have launched before/after photos of the first campaign, along with videos, face charts, and application tips. There is also a contest called Tour of America, where you can upload your photo to be the face of your state. You can check it out at Bobbi Brown’s Pretty Powerful micro-site. I’m a big fan of people embracing who they are and using makeup as a way to enhance their natural gorgeousness, so this was one of my favorite campaigns–I’m happy to see it return.
