Mani Monday: Deborah Lippmann Creates Nail Look for Co-Host Allison Janney

Monday, January 12, 2015

Now that awards season is off to a running start, it is time to pay attention to the details and shine a light on the fancy red carpet manicures. Deborah Lippmann is the Queen of red carpet manicures and this season she lives up to the hype once again with a manicure for People's Choice Award's co-host Allison Janney (stars in CBS' Mom).

Deborah Lippmann has shared the steps on how to achieve a perfect red carpet manicure using products from her Spring 2015 Whisper Collection which is soft, elegant, and understated. Here is how to have your ten tips painted to perfection:


  1. Deborah applied a layer of her NEW All About That Base CC Base Coat ($20, deborahlippmann.com) to provide 10 nail treatment benefits and immediate nail perfecting coverage.
  2. Deborah used 2 layers of her NEW Like Dreamers Do Nail Lacquer, a sheer whimsical pale bisque from the Spring 2015 Whisper Collection ($18, deborahlippmann.com).
  3. After a layer of Gel Lab Top Coat ($45 as a set, deborahlippmann.com), for long-wear, was applied, Deborah finished off the look with her NEW The Wait Is Over Quick Dry Drops ($20, deborahlippmann.com). 
  • Deborah supplemented the soft, subtle shade of the nail lacquer by giving Allison a feminine, almond shape to her nails, a simple elegance that elongates the fingers.
  • On the toes, Deborah used Modern Love, a dusty mauve that puts a feminine and edgy twist on the classic nude ($18, deborahlippmann.com).
