Deborah Lippmann Collection Stormy Weather Nail Polish

During the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale in July 2011, I was able to purchase the fall shades released in the Deborah Lippmann Nail Polish Collection.  I was pretty happy about that as I didn't expect them to be available for the sale.  I initially blogged about them, showing swatches of the colors, here.  I knew a little bit about the story of Stormy Weather, but I hadn't heard it in the words of the creator, Deborah Lippmann herself.  I just love her!  She's great to talk to, even to the little people like me.  :)
Below I have the official release story from Deborah Lippman and be sure to view my link above for swatches!

Show Worthy
fall 2011


Deborah Lippmann’s new shade, STORMY WEATHER, is a collaboration
with fashion designer Narciso Rodriguez—and is the perfect fit for fall.

Fashion week is always hectic — my assistants and I run from show to show, manicuring the hands and feet of over 150 models. The Fall 2011 shows were especially frenzied; I went from Fashion shows to the Grammy Awards in LA, back to the shows in 48 hours. A plea to the Grammy’s people, please move the show back to NY if you’re going to put it in the middle of Fashion week,
I’m just saying…

Traditionally Narciso requests a nude nail to complement his minimalist designs. But this time around, he wanted something bolder—a color with strength and edge that countered both his collection, and the softness of the hair and makeup. So in the middle of what was already a demanding week, I mixed (and mixed) a new shade by hand in a matter of 24 hours. The final look: an edgy granite that had everything Narciso wanted—power and intensity. The models who walked the show (and who rarely, if ever, comment on the nail color) gushed over the shade.

After the show, Narciso and I decided the bold color was an important statement to make for the season. And so our collaboration was born: STORMY WEATHER, an edgy granite (crème).


And now we know the story. Can you imagine the sheer stress of mixing a color ON THE SPOT for a fashion show of such importance during Fashion Week? The intensity of performing under such demands shows you the quality of artist that Deborah is. These and other Lippmann shades can be purchased at Nordstrom and Lippmann Collection dot com.

I can't wait to see what's coming for Holiday!!

Deborah Lippmann Nail Polishes Single Ladies, Stormy Weather and Brick House Swatches - Sneak Peak of Fall 2011

This is a sneak peak of Deborah Lippmann's Fall 2011 collection, featuring three of the colors; Single Ladies, Stormy Weather and Brick House. I didn't purchase Billionaire because they had no testers and I just had to guess and choose the ones I thought I'd wear. The sales person tried to talk me out of Single Ladies based on the color of the bottle and I told her I'm getting it anyway and I'm glad I did. It's nothing like what she was guessing when she was trying to talk me out of it. Weird, huh?

I will be doing a manicure tonight of Single Ladies, but for now, I have swatched them on a nail wheel and want to give you a quick sneak peak of the colors so you get a basic idea in case your store doesn't have testers either. I have taken photos inside and outside in the sun to compare the way the colors look in different lightings.

Single Ladies is a delicious cranberry. It is a little bit sheer and may take three coats for total opaqueness. I'll know for sure later tonight.

Brick House is a frosted burnt orange.

Stormy Weather is a grey. Pure grey. It isn't a nearly black, it is deep grey. I like that you can tell it's grey, instead of being unsure if it's black or grey. In some photos, my red camera is reflected on the edges, so just be sure to know, there is no pink at all in this grey, it's camera fail.

Here's a few more pictures to hold you until you pick yours up.
