FIRST LADY OF NAILS: Deborah Lippmann

WHY HER NAME RINGS A BELL: Lippmann has a line of high-end nail-care products, Lippmann Collection, which boasts several nail colors cocreated with famous clients, such as "Sarah Smile" with Sarah Jessica Parker and "Walk Away Renee" with Renee Zellweger.

THE POWER OF A GOOD MANICURE: "I didn't have my first professional manicure until I was in my 20s. I got porcelain nails — and discovered how much well-groomed hands could boost self-esteem. I became addicted."

WHAT HER CLIENTS LOVE ABOUT HER: Lippmann is a meticulous manicurist with unparalleled warmth. She is often credited with calming even the edgiest diva with her "magic" hand and foot massages.

*Lube up. "Reapply hand cream every time you wash your hands," says Lippmann. For best results, use one with sunscreen, like Lippmann's Rich Girl lotion with SPF 25.
*Bring your own nail kit to any salon ("there is so much bacteria on salon utensils") and never, ever let the technician cut your cuticles — even if it looks better afterward. "In three days, when they're jagged and tearing, you'll regret it."

HAS WORKED WITH: Mary J. Blige, Sarah Jessica Parker, Mariah Carey.
