Best Bet: Deborah Lippmann Punk Rock Collection

Back in February, the nail expert and Lady Gaga favorite Deborah Lippmann was making the rounds backstage during New York Fashion Week with her skilled team of manicurists. She often creates new varnishes as custom colors for designers, and this season’s new Punk Rock collection features two of those exclusive shades. “Pretty Vacant” is a matte, pale gray that was whipped up for the Zero + Maria Cornejo show, while “I Wanna Be Sedated” is an acid yellow created for the Lela Rose show. The trio is rounded out with a glimmering navy blue, called “I Fought the Law.” While these shades were originally designed for the fall fashion collections, we say toss out any seasonal sartorial rules and wear them now.
