Everyone focuses on Cookie Lyon’s wardrobe but her beauty look is just as dynamic, especially those dagger nails. Deborah Lippman is paying homage to all things Empire with a collection of three rich nail polish shades, sure to end up on Cookie’s digits soon.
The colors are “dazzling” and “opulent” in line with the general aesthetic of the show with a fuchsia shimmer (“Hustle Hard”), gold glitter (“Power of the Empire”) and ruby red shimmer (“War Of The Roses”) rounding out the collection.
Deborah Lippman found inspiration from the show’s set and wardrobe but mostly, Cookie: “I was inspired by Cookie,” she said. “I wanted colors that complemented her powerful and assertive wardrobe as well as made a statement on their own. I absolutely love the gilded Empire offices, the ornate homes, and the New York City hip-hop scene.”
“War of the Roses” was created especially with Cookie in mind. “This color is powerful and glows from within just like Cookie does,” says Lippmann. “I imagine her wearing it when she has to fight for her family.” Pick up the new shades online at Sephora and Nordstrom in mid-November, just in time for the holiday season. And be sure to pair it with leopard print in Cookie’s honor.
