I’m currently on nail polish purchasing rampage.  Ever since I discovered these amazing pinky nudes, I’ve been on a mission to collect every shade on my list.  My intention, this year, is to maintain the appearance of my nails as much as possible.

But, I gotta be honest, it’s sometimes a hassle.  I paint my nails and, within days, I start seeing signs of chipping.  Since I’m not one of those girls who immediately addresses the issue, I end up walking around with raggedy nails.  That defeats the entire purpose.  I’m not opposed to redoing my nails, but just not every few days.

Determined to find a solution, I did a research by reaching out of a nail guru I follow on Instagram.  She revealed her secret to manicures that last several weeks.
Our conversation began when I asked her if she had any recommendations for a top coat that actually works.

Much to my surprise, her response was that the top coat wasn’t going to save the day.  Instead, I needed to switch up my entire nail color application process.  Basically, I had been doing it all wrong.  Instead of applying polish and top coat.  Here’s what I should have done:

The key to long-lasting nail color lies in prepping the nail adequately to receive the product.  My biggest mistake was in not removing any of the naturally occurring oil from the nail surface.  For this, we can wipe our nails with alcohol or use a nail dehydrator specifically designed to remove oils and moisture from the nail surface.

From there, we should apply a bonder.  A bonder is specially formulated to allow the nail color to stick to the nail bed. Bonders serve the primary purpose of ensuring a longer-lasting manicure.  They work by raising the pH of the natural nail.  This helps our polish to have better sticking power.   Bonders are similar to a basecoat so you don’t really need to apply another layer of basecoat on top.

Why have I never heard of this product before?

Basically, the combination of removing any traces of oil and using a quality bonder will extend your polish much longer than what you’re used to.  The beauty blogger I messaged boasted about enjoying beautifully polished nails for 3 weeks!!!!

I was shook.

Her favorite bonder is from Orly and people love this stuff.

Some other tips I picked up while researching was to try applying the nail color while the bonder is still a little tacky (not fully dry).  This could help the color and bonder to better adhere to each other.   Others use Orly’s bonder as a base and top coat.   But, apparently, it works just as well on its own.

The moral of the story is that I’ve been living a lie. I had no idea this product existed and I’ve fooled myself into thinking that just using polish and topcoat would somehow make my polish magically stay on.

Now I know the truth and the truth cannot be stopped!!!

Seriously tho, I’m super excited to grab a bottle of Orly’s bonder ASAP so I can enjoy life again.

Aubrey Plaza, Actress

“I was gone for a couple months working on a couple movies that are starting to come out, so I’ve got a movie called Dirty Grandpa coming out next week, which will shock everybody. It’s really something. I’m on a break right now and waiting to figure out what I want to do. It’s been great—I get to hang out with my dogs. I’m gonna try being a normal person.

When I’m not working, I don’t wear much makeup. I was on a TV show for seven years, and having a professional put makeup on you, you are forced to learn about it—it’s definitely become a big part of my life. It’s been fun figuring out what I can do on my own because I was never very good at doing my own makeup or taking care of my skin. It’s a daily struggle for me to maintain, but, yeah—I’m much better at it now.

I need to have mascara on at all times—I feel naked without it when I leave the house. Trish McEvoy is my favorite right now—High Volume Mascara, Jet Black—I like this one and I don’t know why. Mascaras are so mysterious to me. I feel like they all work in different ways and then once you find one that you like you can’t live without it, but that one’s my jam right now. It doesn’t have big bristles and my eyelashes are not that long so it feels like it adds length to them without separating them. Then I like to have a tinted moisturizer or some light concealer on. Actually, I’ve been trying to not do that because I would like to not put anything on my skin. But I’ll put Clé de Peau Beauté Bronzer on for a bronzy, glowy situation. It looks like nothing, but it gives you an extra bronzy glow—it’s warm and nice.

The only thing I’m still not great at is figuring out color. I’m afraid of straying from my color palette, which is a bronzy brown and warm colors. I’m not very adventurous with colors, but my face can handle a lot of makeup, which is what people have told me over the years. I think it means that when some people get their eye makeup done their eyes kind of disappear and their face feels heavy, but for me, I can just keep putting makeup on and it looks better rather than worse. So, I can handle serious eye makeup. I experiment with that on my own and I have fun. Only in the past year or two have I tried to put an eyeshadow under my eyes, or something soft and smoky. Whenever I’m really hormonal I wear a lot of eyeliner. It’s a psychological thing and I think I’m protected by it—it protects me from evil. The other day I did leave the house with some Marc Jacobs Highliner Gel Eye Crayon on and I was like, ‘I just need to put this in my car because you never know.’

It’s a very emotional process to do my own makeup. I start to zone out and then just do stuff and it almost feels artistic in a way, but sometimes it doesn’t end well. Like I said, I’m not very good at putting colors together, so I’ll think that certain things will go together and I’ll be like, ‘Fuck! That did not work out.’ At least I try.

My skin is really annoying because it will go for long stretches of being really chill and then it will just not be chill. Growing up I had really bad skin, so I had trauma. I’m always switching my routine up because I feel like I have to be five steps ahead of my skin at all times—once I get used to something, it doesn’t work as well anymore. On a regular day, I wake up and I use that gold ball in my soap dish called Golda Sphere Soap. It’s this amazing Japanese massage thing made by this woman Keiko [Matsuo] who gives me facials. It’s so awesome and it’s like a ball of oils. It’s the one thing I actually like using. It makes my skin feel really, really clean.

If I don’t have to do anything for work, I will do my little three-step routine. I’ll wash my face, do a little serum or toner, and then a lot of moisturizer. I’m really into the Kate Somerville DermalQuench [line]. They have an anti-acne one–DermalQuench Clear Anti-Acne Treatment and an anti-aging one–DermalQuench Liquid Lift Advanced Wrinkle Treatment. Those are kind of like serums. You pump them out and they fizz and you rub it all over your face. I’m into Mario Badescu’s line. I use all of his acne stuff if I’m having a bad skin day. I’m also really into oils–all purpose oils. The Pure Marula Facial Oil is awesome because you can put it in your hair and on your skin, so if I want to go completely oily, naked-y, and glowy, I’ll put that everywhere and it also smells really fucking good. My friend Peet Rivko is coming out with this oil that’s my favorite thing. It’s just a really simple, clean oil instead of a cream-based moisturizer. Then I always use Lucas’ Papaw on my lips and any weird skin irritation that I have all over my body.

At night, I have to wash my face—I have to! If I don’t take my makeup off, I’ll break out like crazy. One thing that I’m always in search of is the best makeup remover. I think the best one is the Cleansing Spa Water by Koh Gen Do. That one gets everything off, but I just ran out so I’ve been using the Erno Laszlo Phelityl Pre-Cleansing Oil, which is really oily and sticky. That Spa Water one is like water and I don’t know what’s in it, but it’s like magic and it gets everything off. Then I have a slip that goes over my pillowcase that’s hypoallergenic and anti-aging. I got it in a gift bag and I was like, ‘This is bullshit,’ but then I put it on and it was amazing. Your face just feels so much cleaner.

At home, I am obsessed with taking baths with salt and any kind of oil. I also have a steam room in my guest house and that’s my ideal relaxation thing—steaming and sweating and doing a mask. I love the Naturopathica Pumpkin Purifying Enzyme Peel and this mud mask that I got from the side of the road in Mexico. Or Mario Badescu’s serious Drying Mask that I use if my face is really freaking the fuck out. I’ll do a mask weekly, usually.

My hair gets a lot of heat because of work, so I have a ton of oils for it—even straight up coconut oil I’ll use. I like things that you can put everywhere and coconut oil you can eat, too. A lot of times when I take a shower and my hair is wet, I’ll just put oil in there and sleep in it and give my hair a break. Leonor Greyl also makes a really good Huile de Magnolia that I use.

My texture is really fine and, weirdly enough, pretty curly. I’m not the kind of person that can let my hair air-dry and look amazing. I look like an insane muppet if I let my hair air-dry, so I have to tame it. And my hair gets oily fast, but I definitely try not to wash it everyday—maybe every two days. Because of that, I use a lot of dry texturizing sprays and dry shampoo. Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray is great because my hair needs as much help as it can get volume-wise. If I’m going out, I’ll use L’Oréal Elnett Satin Hairspray because it’s good for colored hair, which mine is—gotta get rid of those grays. My mom went fully gray when she was 20, and it’s a genetic thing. If I was all gray like my mom maybe I would rock it, but it doesn’t work so well when you’re trying to play 20 years-old in a movie.

I went short this summer, but it’s growing out and it’s in the weird in-between. They cut it to my chin for Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates, which doesn’t come out till next summer. The whole idea is that my hair is long and blue and I’m a crazy party girl and then I cut it and try to clean up. I was against bangs because I had them for so long, but I’m into them again. Of course, once you go short, you want your hair to be long again, but it was fun for a little bit.

The best for me is when the oils that I use on my skin smell really good, like the Marula Oil. I almost use it as a perfume because it smells so amazing. Elizabeth and James has two scents and I have the both of them—they’re both called Nirvana—but there’s the Nirvana White and the Nirvana Black and I love them both. The black one is more musky and the white is more floral. They come in the solids, which I like. It’s a beautiful case, too.

I had gels for a while and they ruined my nails, so I’ve been trying to just keep them really clean. I like manicures, but I also like keeping it simple—I’m not into nail art. I like my nails to be healthy, shiny, and sturdy, especially for survival scenarios, you know? You gotta have nails that can do some damage. I know we want our nails to look good, ladies, but you never know when you’re going to need to claw someone’s eyes out.”

Katherine Power, CEO, Clique Media Group

“I definitely discover products through friends, or through some sort of social post from Byrdie or Violet Grey or Into The Gloss. But I’m not naturally curious about beauty—I would use the same thing my whole life, so it kind of has to fall in my lap. Someone has to tell me, ‘This is great—try it!’ And then I’ll get obsessed with it. I would say I’ve started trying new things a lot more, and on Byrdie there’s a lot of information on beauty hacks—how to save time doing something, how to fall asleep fast, all kinds of how-to information that I really love to read. It’s really approachable and it’s just kind of encouraged me to do more.

As far as face wash, every day I use Sanítas, which I was referred to by Francesca Paige, who’s an aesthetician. Then I use Biologique Recherche Lotion P50 morning and night—it’s life-changing. I just started using this RéVive Eye Cream that I really love…I was never really an eye cream believer before this. I just sort of used whatever free eye cream someone sent me. But this one I bought, and I really do think that it works. It’s very expensive, that’s the only downfall. I don’t have dark circles—my problem is more the thinness of the skin and crepe-iness under the eyes. So this is supposed to be a little bit of a filler, and I think it’s helped my fine lines as well.

I’ve been using this iS Clinical Hydra-Cool Serum that the facialist Shani Darden turned me on to. It’s a really light way to moisturize, and then I put on my Peter Thomas Roth Ultra-Lite Sunscreen with it, so it’s not super greasy. Or sometimes I’ll use my Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer or Honest Beauty Everything Tinted Moisturizer, which have sunscreen in them. Once I put those on, then I put a little eye cream on, and then I go for makeup.

I just started using Retinol at night, which is new for me. I got Resurface from Shani Darden, and it’s amazing. Before bed, I use the same face wash and the P50 and then the Retinol. I’ll wash my face once, and then I put more of the face wash on my Clarisonic. I probably should use the Clarisonic every night, but I’m a little lazy about it, so I do it like four times a week. Of course I have my Glossier Balm Dotcom, which I typically use as lip balm or sometimes on my cuticles.

For facials, I go to Francesca Paige and Biba de Sousa at Esthetic Underground on South Beverly. Last year I went on a round of really strong antibiotics, and it completely messed up the bacteria in my gut, so I broke out with adult acne for the first time in my life—it was terrible. The reason it got better was because I took a lot of probiotics and worked on my stomach. Biba really helped me through that, and she gave me this Esthetic Underground Acne Gel [ed note: not available online]. The best advice I got from her was, if you have cystic acne, every night she would have me ice my face, basically rub an ice cube over it for two minutes, and then I would use this gel. And then I just started going to Shani Darden because Jessica Alba gave me a gift certificate to her for my birthday, and I really loved her, she’s great. Everybody has great light machines, but hers seems to really work for me. It’s definitely a commitment, because you look great the day after, but then it kind of goes away, so you want to do it every day.

I usually either use Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer or Armani Luminous Silk Foundation, depending on the day. Normally I probably would just use the Laura Mercier, or if I have an event or something I’ll use the Armani for more coverage. And then Clé de Peau in Beige is the go-to concealer. Too Faced Primed & Poreless is a powder that one of my facialists recommended because it’s totally non-irritating and you can use it as a primer or as a setting powder. And then in my purse, I carry the Laura Mercier Setting Powder. For blush, I’ve been using this Laura Mercier Second Skin Cheek Colour in Plum Radiance with the little brush. And then I use a little bit of the Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow Highlighter and Bronzer—sometimes I use the bronzer, but mostly just the highlighter. Or I use Tom Ford Shade and Illuminate Intensity One highlighter with my finger. And that’s it for my skin.

My eyelash extensions are from this place on Robertson. I have them done by this woman named Katie, so I just comb them out and I do my lower lashes with Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara. Then to do my eyebrows, I use Anastasia Brow Gel. I go to Kristie Streicher for grooming. She’s great, but [with her process] you can’t touch them for eight weeks so that they grow. But mine don’t really grow that much.

And then I have a bunch of different lip colors. I usually have one Clinique Chubby Stick in a natural color—Graped-Up—and a red lipstick in my purse. I like Short Circuit by Nars, which is not in action anymore. It was a special edition, so I kind of bought up all I could find and then I’ll use Heat Wave, too. For night, I would usually just put on a red lip. Maybe I would add a little bit more highlighter with the Charlotte Tilbury or the Tom Ford. But it’s pretty much just a red lip, and I’ll just mess my hair up a little bit more. I dress so conservatively that I try to have messier hair. And then sometimes I’ll slick my hair back into a little nub.

I workout every morning really early, 6AM at Tracy Anderson. Because it’s such a hot workout, I have to shower every single day, and wash my hair. For my body, I use Honest Body Wash and I typically use either René Furterer Shampoo and Conditioner, or I have Jen Atkin’s samples from her new haircare line that I’m obsessed with. So if I have those, then I’ll use them. If I don’t, I use [Furterer]. And then I just started using an apple cider vinegar rinse, which I love. You can use it instead of shampoo and conditioner so that you don’t have to shampoo your hair every day. So every other day I’ll use it, and it’ll sud up and it cleans everything. I want to preserve my hair color longer, and I have a Brazilian blowout that I want to preserve, so I just tried it and I really liked it. Now I’m a big apple cider vinegar believer. Jen also has a great hair mask that she makes, and I’ll only use it once a week since it’s very conditioning. My natural hair texture is wavy and frizzy. Gregory Russell at Andy LeCompte cuts it—he did my short hair, so I feel like he has to always do the same with me. I mean Jen Atkin would [cut it] if she was ever there, but she’s never in the salon. So I’ve been going to Gregory for a couple years, and I love his haircuts. Short hair is so much easier. I’ve had all different lengths, but I love this.

After I get out of the shower, when my hair’s wet, I part it and I put in a nickel-size of Kevin Murphy Motion Lotion, and I scrunch it, and then I put on a little bit of Osmo Clay Wax—this is the best wax in the world. I’ve tried every sort of pomade-y wax. I just take a little bit of that and rub it in my hands and go through the ends. It’ll kind of make your hair stick in a shape. And then, as my hair dries, once it kind of gets the moisture out, then I flip it. Depending on where I am in the cycle of the Brazilian, it’s either great, or it’s not great. So there’s like a month of my peak, and then it’s either too frizzy or too straight and I have it done probably every five months. I let it pretty much totally wear off, and then I go back in. This is the first time in my life that I’ve had a hairstyle where I can literally just go. And you know, my time is so much more limited now as I get older that I really just need to have a look that I can quickly put together.

Every week I wear the same Tom Ford red, Scarlet Chinois. Or I’ve been doing Essie Waltz lately on my toes because I’ve been wearing these burgundy Céline mules, so it looks bad to have a bright red nail with the shoes. But, I’ve probably done red pretty consistently for like the last three years. The Christian Louboutin is another good red. But the bottle is a little embarrassing unless you’re in Beverly Hills, they’re all like, ‘Oh, the Christian Louboutin one!’ But I get my nails done in the valley, and they’re scared of it.

I’ve been wearing Quelques Fleurs Perfume since I was like, 14. If I want to feel a little more sophisticated, I’ll wear this Chanel No. 19. I’ve tried to wear different things, but I just always go back to the [Quelques Fleurs]. This Caudalie Divine Oil is really cool. During summer, even though I don’t tan, I would put this on and pretend I was golden and glowing. And then I always buy a new Ligne St. Barth lotion when I go there, but I wear that mostly in the summer. In the house, we like the Le Labo Santal candle, and sometimes Diptyque Baies—that’s pretty much it.

I take a lot of herbal supplements from my acupuncturist Dr. Mao at Tao of Wellness. And he has me taking a lot of different things for my adrenal glands and digestive enzymes and all of that. I have a very sensitive stomach. Every morning before I go work out I have a green tea smoothie, which I make every single day with matcha powder and half a banana, vanilla protein powder, and hemp milk. I’ve been doing Tracy Anderson for probably two years now, two and a half, Monday through Friday. I don’t even know anymore if I feel sore, or it’s just the way it feels. Every Saturday, I do Cardio Barre in the valley with my childhood best friend and Sunday is my day of rest.”

Deborah Lippmann

“When I was in college, I got my first job at Bullock’s, which was like the Bergdorf’s of the South. I worked in costume jewelry because I was too shy to apply in the cosmetics department. That’s how highly I thought of it. Beauty has always been my second love, after music. I went to cosmetology school about a year after college. At that time, I had really been working as a singer. My first big paid performing music gig was in Arizona at this thing called Razzle Dazzle. We did Vegas-style shows in Arizona, and we wore these huge costumes. Oh my god, the big headdresses and rhinestones and sequins. I was a nail biter, and I got to the dress rehearsal and picked up the microphone and I had these bitten nails. The director took me to a salon the next day for a set of porcelain nails. The early fake nails were made of dental porcelain. It literally changed how I held myself and how I used my hands. I realized how much shame I had attached to my hands.

As a kid, I had a doctor say to me ‘your hands are the second thing people see. First it’s your eyes and then they shake your hand, so it’s a reflection of you.’ It just took me a long time to realize it. It took me wearing artificial nails and then taking them off to break the biting habit. Now I’m not a nail biter, although when I get super stressed my hands still want to go in my mouth.

I’d dreamt of living in New York since I was a kid, so I moved here to sing. I ended up working at Elizabeth Arden as a manicurist. It was really tough. We used to carry little carts to each client and one of the other manicurists was late, so I was sent to do her client. She came in and literally knocked me over with her cart to get to the client. That’s really what they mean when they say ‘If you can make it here, you can make it anywhere.’

I had a few clients who knew Frederic Fekkai and they said, ‘You need to work there. He’s the hot guy.’ That was 22 years ago. So, I put in an application and they called me in to give a manicure and it worked out. I had a lot of people sit in my chair at Fekkai in the early days. Linda Wells was an early client. I had all the fanciest women in New York and I realized that fancy women didn’t really understand nail care. There was a big hole in the marketplace, so that’s how my company kind of started. It was not my goal ever.

Cher was my first panic-attack celebrity. She actually helped me to choose my nail polish bottle. I sat on a bed with her for hours with all of my packaging and she helped me put it all together. Now, she introduces me to friends and it’s an out of body experience. She’s like, ‘This is my friend Deb Lippmann, I picked her bottle.” She played such a big part because I love my bottle.

When I started the brand, it was very sophisticated and narrow—my claim to fame is a perfect natural manicure. But during the recession I started noticing people weren’t getting manicures anymore. I thought, ‘Why is nail polish so serious?’ I created a polish called Happy Birthday that became probably our most iconic shade. It’s a super sheer polish with different sizes of glitter in it, so if you were doing your own nails and you weren’t super adept, it took the pressure off. People used to be very safe with their nail color, especially in New York. But now, people have opened up. They’re willing to go a little crazy.

I could change my own nail polish three or four times in a day. I could also go days with just a base coat on. I always feel like I have to have some protection on my nails. I love all forms of red and nude. I did work on Gaga for many years and did all kinds of crazy stuff for her. I was always challenged by her amazing creativity. And I do like nail art. Back in the ’80s, I went to Hawaii with my performing group and while I was there I had a nail artist on the street paint a Hawaiian sunset on my big, long square nails. That was my first experience with nail art. And I can’t do a Hawaiian sunset to this day, but I’m extremely in awe of it. I love it.

Nails are really personal. You’re sitting really closely with somebody, which is actually a part of the business that I would like to see reinvigorated. I understand that we like express service, but to me it’s really important and now so many of us are going into places where there is no relationship. One of my first bosses in Arizona said to me, ‘Of all of the services that we do, manicures are the most intimate.’ She taught me how important it is to make somebody feel better and to sense their energy. When I’m giving someone a massage, I won’t stop until I see their breathing change, until I see that I’ve made a difference in their day-to-day on top of just doing a good manicure.

It’s the same when I’m working with people during awards season. It’s like being invited into somebody’s wedding. It’s a very precious, secret space. It’s such a big deal and it’s so important. Even choosing a nude nail color can take forever, because the red carpet has a certain light and then you’re sitting in your seat where they’ll get certain shots of you and then you win and you’re holding the guy and you don’t want to distract. It’s crazy. Reese Witherspoon, Marion Cotillard, Lupita [Nyong’o]…I did so many Golden Globe winners. You can learn so much from those experiences—and from fashion shows and photoshoots too. My first show was Calvin Klein. I did Kate Moss for my very first show, and she was like, ‘I’m not here forever.’ A year later I was doing a Cavalli shoot with her at like, three in the morning, she was like, ‘I want to do your hair and makeup, make you look like me.’ So Daria and Kate did my makeup that day. I have pictures of that but I don’t have high-res. It was hilarious and amazing.

I use my Clarisonic Brush every day. I wear Clé de Peau Sheer Fluid Veil. I like a smoky eye and a nude or fuchsia lip. For eyes, I use Tarte EmphasEYES High-Definition Eye Pencil in Black. It’s a really good black that goes on easily and doesn’t bleed. But sometimes if I don’t have a lot of time I’ll just do an eyelash. I love Troy Surratt’s Pointilliste Mascara. I love Diorshow Mascara. I also like good old L’Oréal Voluminous. For my brows, there is Tom Ford Brow Sculptor. That’s fantastic. For lips, I use NARS lipsticks. I’m a junkie. I love to try new things. I love experimenting. I also use my own Lipstick & Nail Duet called Sexyback.

I also love Troy’s build-your-own blush and eye shadow palettes. I have one that I put together for evening and one for daytime. And I use Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream. I’m not very good at contouring but I like her Filmstar Bronze & Glow if I have time to do it. All of us behind-the-scenes people don’t really do our own hair or makeup much. But I always have C.O. Bigelow Lip Shine in my purse—the tinted ones. I like their Mentha Lip Balm Stick too—that minty feeling.

I took my extensions out, but they changed my life. I loved having long, full hair. I’m pretty sure that sitting with hair and makeup people all these years I’ve picked up lots of things. For example, I’ve learnt to go over my roots directly with the blow dryer to get volume. I love Oribe, their Dry Texturizing Spray. I also like the Philip B Maui Wowie Volumizing & Thickening Beach Mist. It gives my hair a really good curl. I’m a big fan of Dry Bar too. I do love an express service.”
