BACK­STAGE PASS SHE’S NAIL­ING IT

Nail tech­ni­cian to the stars

The Sunday Telegraph - Stella - - #ONE DAY - Deb­o­rah Lipp­mann

he cites Bar­bra Streisand as her nail icon, is Vic­to­ria Beck­ham’s show man­i­curist of choice and spent a year pro­duc­ing the ‘per­fect’ red pol­ish for Renée Zell­weger. As Hol­ly­wood’s hottest nail tech­ni­cian, Deb­o­rah Lipp­mann is re­spon­si­ble for cre­at­ing the nail looks that we will start to see trend­ing over the next few months.

Lipp­mann is also a reg­u­lar on the awards-cer­e­mony cir­cuit. Re­mem­ber Lupita Ny­ong’o’s chic, pearles­cent cream nails that shim­mered as she clutched her Os­car? That was her. Lady Gaga’s vel­vet nails for her Ju­das video? Guess who.

So what’s the nail of the mo­ment? Ap­par­ently it’s all about clears and nudes. ‘Cus­tomers can’t get enough of them, but whereas once, “nude” meant sheer pinks, to­day it cov­ers off-tau­pes, mauves and even grey,’ Deb­o­rah ex­plains. She goes on: ‘Last week at my spin class, a woman my age had a French man­i­cure us­ing a light grey pol­ish with sheer yel­low tips – it was so sim­ple and beau­ti­ful.’

Talk­ing of age, Lipp­mann érmly be­lieves that your nail var­nish shouldn’t be dic­tated by the date on your birth cer­tié­cate – or even by your skin tone. It should be about how a colour or nail shape makes you feel. Here are her tips for énd­ing your style.
