Shopping IntheNOLA: Local Valentine’s Day gifts with LaPierre CosmeticsWritten by IntheNOLA.com
Ladies and gentleman of New Orleans, you have just 1 day to find (and get!) the perfect Valentine’s Day gift for your loved one(s). Lucky for you, IntheNOLA’s got some great local ideas for you!
Can a lady ever have too many nail polishes? We think not. From You’re Tutu Much and Talk that Jazz to Polar Opposites and Dripping in Gold, you’re sure to find a favorite in LaPierre Cosmetics’ collection.
LaPierre Cosmetics’ founder and owner Brandi Blocker started the company in 2013 after being inspired by her mother, J. M. LaPierre. “My mother was a woman who embodied elegance and class, and she also loved to polish and take care of her nails,” said Brandi. “For years, we created many fond memories over a fresh bottle of red nail lacquer.”
In 2013, Brandi’s mother was diagnosed with lung cancer. Unfortunately, she lost her battle with the disease in 2014. However, her memory lives on in LaPierre Cosmetics. “Our most popular and first signature lacquer is named ‘Jacquelyn’ after my mother,” Brandi explained.” A deep red color, ‘Jacquelyn’ is in honor of the red lipstick and red nail lacquer she wore for decades.”
She continued, “Our nail polishes are ‘5 Free,’ meaning that none of them contain five harmful chemicals commonly found in other nail polishes (formaldehyde resin, formaldehyde, toluene, camphor, and dibutyl phthalate). In addition, they are cruelty-free, vegan, and proudly made in the USA. LaPierre Cosmetics is also a supporter and official sponsor of the LIVESTRONG Foundation in memory of my mother.”
Brandi added, “Most recently, we proudly unveiled our highly anticipated signature lacquer, ‘Dripping in Gold,’ with the Tumbler and Tipsy brand by Michael Kuluva. Inspired by fashion, this dynamic collaboration boldly brought a chic million-dollar look! With its shimmering color, ‘Dripping In Gold’ made its debut on the runway models at the Tumbler and Tipsy Spring Summer 2017 (SS17) fashion show during New York Fashion Week.”
Definitely pick up some of these luxury nail polishes for your loved one for Valentine’s Day this year!
