“My fascination with beauty began at an early age, and my journey has been a dream come true,” said Weiss-Fischmann. “I have witnessed OPI’s successful evolution in becoming the world leader in professional nail care. Now, more than ever, is the time for nails and I am excited to continue to share my expertise with nail fans across the world!”
In 1989, Weiss-Fischmann began to make nails not only relevant, but exciting and fun when she created the first thirty OPI colors. She has since created over 400 shades of nail lacquer. Suzi has been featured in numerous magazines, such as W, More, and Family Circle as well as on Today Show (NBC) and Nightline (ABC).
