Deborah Lippmann, a professional jazz singer-turned-fashion manicurist, isn’t singing the blues.
Lippmann began her story by making an admission. “I am a lifelong nail biter,” noting that her bad habit became obvious when she was preparing for a music gig. She was told that her hands were too unsightly to be seen holding a microphone. “What are your nails saying about you? Your brand? You?” became Lippmann’s new mantra.
