Suzi Weiss Fischmann

Executive Vice President & Artistic Director
OPI Products Inc.
“The First Lady of Nails”


One woman changed the world of nails. In 1989, Suzi Weiss-Fischmann began to make nails not only relevant, but exciting and fun when she created the first thirty OPI colors, including OPI Red, Malaga Wine and Coney Island Cotton Candy. Then, manicures were only for special occasions. Now, nails are the hottest new fashion accessory!

As Executive Vice President & Artistic Director of OPI Products Inc., the world leader in professional nail care, Suzi creates every OPI nail lacquer shade. She ignited the “dark nail” revolution with Lincoln Park After Dark (deep purple), was the first to add real diamond dust to nail lacquer, and pushed nail art into the fashion mainstream with Shatter by OPI.

She has composed thousands of iconic OPI colors and names including: You Don’t Know Jacques! (deep taupe), My Private Jet (shimmery black), Bubble Bath (soft pink) and Here Today Aragon Tomorrow (dark shimmering green). When she produced I’m Not Really a Waitress, a rich, shimmery red, it was heralded as the “best shade of red” by women across the globe. Allure inducted the lacquer into its Beauty Hall of Fame in 2011, having won Best Nail Polish awards more than nine times.

Known worldwide as “The First Lady of Nails,” Suzi is the go-to authority for beauty editors and fashion designers alike, regularly giving her thoughts on color and nails in major publications. In 2011, she was featured in W, More, Family Circle and on Today Show (NBC) and Nightline (ABC).
