heroFor nails, Deborah Lippmann created a bold yet fashion-forward look, with a slightly pointed shape and a milky-white base with a matte finish (Pseudo Silk Kimono). Inspired by a cap-toe shoe, the tips had a pewter shimmer (Bad Moon Rising, launching in October), with a thin stripe in between as an accent in one of three Deborah Lippmann colors, including It’s Raining Men.

Showstopping Designer Fragrances

Nordstrom National Beauty and Fragrance Director Cheri Botiz sums up her favorite designer fragrance picks: “These are all works of art—you will definitely get noticed.”

This fall, fragrance is inspired by the modern, empowered woman—seductive and sophisticated, with a mysterious sense of confidence. Layered notes of woods, violets, irises, jasmine, amber, toffee and caramel create these alluring scents, which are all glamorous and just a little delicious—the ultimate luxury.

Beauty tip: layer with body cream to create a lasting, signature scent.

2 – Burberry ‘Body’ Eau de Parfum. Sure to be as iconic as the Burberry check print, a floral bouquet of peach and freesia are blended with sandalwood, vanilla and musk.
