Hong Kong Tatler - - Style -

A pur­ple pedi­cure is per­fect for those who want to fol­low this year’s trend in a rather more sub­tle way. But be­ing brave and wear­ing the shade as a man­i­cure will en­sure ev­ery­one sees you’re bang-on style. Be aware that pur­ple pol­ish shows even the tini­est chip and a dark shade can make nails seem shorter. And avoid last year’s stiletto shape—very long and pointy— un­less it’s Hal­loween.

Deb­o­rah Lipp­mann is said to be one of the best man­i­curists in the US, with fans in­clud­ing ac­tresses Kate Winslet, Reese Wither­spoon, Renée Zell­weger and Pene­lope Cruz. “Nails are the new ac­ces­sory be­cause it’s an af­ford­able luxury,” says Lipp­mann. “When you change your nail pol­ish, you change your mood. Who do you want to be to­day?”

Lipp­mann shares her se­cret for en­sur­ing that your man­i­cure lasts longer—cap each nail with pol­ish by tak­ing the very tip of the var­nish brush across the very tip of the nail. “It will last for days longer,” she says.
