DEBORAH LIPPMAN’S SUMMER 2015 NAIL COLLECTION: PAINTED DESERT
The Painted Desert is part of the Badlands in Arizona, but in fact, it’s a stunningly beautiful place! The Painted Desert encompasses over 93,500 acres and stretches over 160 miles. The subdued tones in the sandstone “monuments” feature stripes of subdued, earthy colors — a result of the varying mineral content in the sediments and the rate at which the sediments were laid down in the rock and mud. When sediments are deposited slowly, oxides of iron and (hematite) aluminum become concentrated in the soil. These concentrations create the red, orange, and pink colors and during a rapid sediment buildup such as a flooding event, oxygen is removed from the soil forming the blue, gray, and lavender layers. The colors change from the Northern to Southern end of the Painted Desert.
For Summer 2015 Deborah Lippman takes inspiration for nail colors from the natural hues of the Painted Desert, producing her Painted Desert Collection.
The quartet of creamy colors are not just perfect for a subtle Summer nail, they will work so well with Fall and Winter’s wools, tweeds, and richer materials too. The shades are neutral but bold enough to make a statement. They are also full coverage, so you don’t have to waste your Summer painted on layer after layer to get a perfectly coated nail. In addition these polishes contain no Toluene, Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, Camphor or DBP (Dibutyl Phthalate) and there is no animal testing
Shifting Sands looks pink, but it is actually a light khaki that was previewed at Eva Fehren’s S/S 2015 NYFW presentation
Terra Nova is my favorite, a warm camel that reminds me of my favorite wool coat, but coats nails with a soft camel that’s trendy and novel. This color was previewed at Narciso Rodriguez’s S/S 2015 runway show
Desert Moon is a pebble gray –you just can’t get enough creamy grey nail colors–a new classic.
Each of these dreamy, creamy, high quality nail colors is available for SRP: $18.00 online at deborahlippmann.com and at
Barneys New York, Bloomingdale’s, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom and Sephora stores nationwide.
