Hearkening back to a time when women were called “dames,” when Victory Rolls and Veronica Lake waves were all the rage in hair, the Deborah Lippmann Fall 2014 “New York Marquee” collection takes inspiration from the luxe fabrics of the 1940s. Think of the chrometastic Chrysler Building, the glitz of Broadway and silk charmeuse gowns.

Thanks to my relationship with e-tailer Nailbox (I curated their S/S TrendBox and work on their social media), I’ve been introduced to some new-to-me nail polish brands from around the globe. One that I’ve become particularly smitten with is Treat Collection.
