We’ve already seen proof that channeling Cookie Lyon of Empire does wonders for your wardrobe, so it was only a matter of time before we started taking beauty cues from her, too. Deborah Lippmann is introducing a limited edition three-polish nail collection inspired by Fox’s hit show and it is expectedly glitzy, colourful, and Cookie-approved. Lippmann, who has created polishes for Girls and True Blood, adds Hustle Hard, a shimmery fuchsia shade; Power of the Empire, a glittery gold; and War of the Roses, a metallic red, to her made-for-television lacquer repertoire.
“I was mostly inspired by Cookie when creating the colours,” Lippmann told us. “I wanted them to complement her powerful and assertive wardrobe as well as make a statement on their own.” The Power of the Empire is inspired by the way “Cookie and Lucious Lyon mix their style of music for a rich and complex result.” War of the Roses was meant for Cookie. “It’s powerful and glows from within,” she said. “I imagine her wearing it when she has to fight for her family.” Lastly, Hustle Hard was meant to channel “the hip energy of the show from the pulsing urban beats to smooth R&B.”
Empire X Deborah Lippmann is available online starting this November at Sephora and Nordstrom.
