THE EXPERT Deborah Lippman, a.k.a. the nail guru, paints pretty colors onto the fingers and toes of clients Gwyneth Paltrow, Sarah Jessica Parker, Renee Zellweger and Mary J. Blige.
EXPERT TIP Avoid removing enamel with cotton balls, "which leave fuzzies behind that can stick to polish," says Lippmann. Instead wipe it away with a sponge soaked in fume-free remover. Lippmann's Stripper to Go pads mask the odor of acetone with lavender.
