One of the first things I’m going to do when businesses open after the COVID19 quarantine is to get my nails done. My last gel manicure is shot and my nails are terrible! Until things return to normal, I’m counting on the Limited Edition Deborah Lippmann Come Fly With Me Set $59 to tide me over.
The kit is designed for travel, but I’m going to use it as a beginner DIY anil treatment. The set includes:
- Rich Girl spf 25 hand cream full size
- All About That Base (base coat) 8mL
- Addicted To Speed (top coat) 8mL
- My Old Flame (red) 8mL
- Naked (sheer beige) 8mL
- The Stripper To Go lacquer remover (3 mitts)
- Smooth Operator buffer
- Eco-File nail file
- Travel-friendly zip-top cosmetics bag.
Whether you’d like to go the natural route with clear polish, or try something new and colorful, good looking nails start with prep. Allow Deborah Lippmann, celebrity manicurist & brand founder, to walk us through the simple steps to healthy nails at-home.
Filing and shaping nails may seem like a mindless activity, but it can weaken and break your nails if done improperly. To prevent damage, never ‘saw’ back and forth on the tip of the nail. Instead, gently run the file across the nail in one direction. Use the Smooth Operator $12
This 4-way nail buffer shapes, smooths, buffs, & shines—this multi-tasking buffer lays the groundwork for a perfect manicure and is also a tool for a quick fix for high-shine on the go without nail color.
Once we have a full regrowth of our nail — no matter how thin and damaged they may have been from the removal— our nails will come back to how they were before. Healthy cuticles are key to healthy nail growth.
The NEW Cuticle Remover Pen $24 loosens and softens dry cuticles without the need to soak hands in water in just one application. The lanolin-based formula quickly exfoliates and removes dead skin cells without damaging nails.
Now that our nails are prepped, Deborah has several fab nail polish sets to choose from. Wild Safari $36 is new for summer 2020. This 6pc limited-edition set features expedition shades of olive green, sandy browns, golden tans, and classic khaki for traditional safari neutrals with a twist. Includes: Jungle Love, Tusk, Take Me To The River, Babes in Khaki, Swami Safari, The Lion Sleeps Tonight
I love brights in the spring and summer so the Life’s A Beach Set $19 is my choice. It includes The Tide Is High, an aquatic blue creme and Break 4 Love, a bubblegum pink crème.
For those of you with a sweet tooth, you’ll love Sweets For My Sweet $34. This set has shades of Pastels: Sugar, Sugar, Lemon Drop, Sweet Pea, My Boy Lollipop, All Day Sucker, Candy Girl.
