Deborah Lippmann

Though Deborah Lippmann is known as the go-to manicurist for stars like Lupita Nyong'o, Scarlett Johansson and Lady Gaga, you might've not known that she's also a singer with two albums on iTunes! She loves music so much that many of her polishes are named after song titles. Spot her handiwork (pun intended) at shows this season like Kate Spade New York, Edun, Badgley Mischka, Honor and Narciso Rodriguez. Follow her on Instagram @deborahlippmann.
