Not so long ago, before I went to college to study journalism and before I then became a beauty writer, I was a total theater geek. Instead of obsessing over street style stars, I idolized Broadway divas. Instead of asking for clothes and makeup as gifts, I requested show tickets.
So, when I learned that Deborah Lippmann was creating a collection inspired by Wicked the musical, I kind of freaked out. It’s like a dream meeting of my two worlds.
The limited edition line—available on Sephora.com now—commemorates the musical’s 10th year on Broadway and features three shades fit for an Ozian: a shimmery pink, a Wicked Witch-y green and an emerald glitter.
Last month, I was lucky enough to get a sneak peek of the polishes backstage at Wicked with Deborah Lippmann herself. Doing the collection, Lippmann told me, was a no-brainer. I knew she was a music buff (Lippmann boasts three albums of her own and names each of her polishes after a song.), but it turns out she’s a big theater enthusiast as well, and has seen Wicked nearly 10 times.
Click through above to check out the nail colors for yourself, and trust me—even if you’re not a super cool musical theater lover like myself and Lippmann, you’ll still freak for these colors. After all, emerald is the Pantone Color of the Year.
