To prepare for my day in Oz I had to paint my nails green with Deborah Lipman's Elphaba and Emerald City on my ring fingers. Both polishes come from Deborah Lipman's Wicked collection designed for Wicked's 10th anniversary in 2013. The set also includes a pink glitter polish Popular named after the fun and upbeat song that Glinda sings. Elphaba is a beautiful creme green shade that matches Elphaba's skin colour. Emerald City is a green glitter polish that emulates the bight sparkling lights in the Emerald City. Together the Wicked polishes creates a perfect Ozian manicure!
Alyssa Fox played the role of Elphaba and Kara Linday played Glinda at the performance. Although Fox is actually the standby for Elphaba, I thought she was absolutely amazing and really loved her voice. When she sang the famous song Defying Gravity I got the chills and was mesmerized by the performance. Lindsay brought such a bright and bubbly personality to Glinda but also gave touching emotional performances for Thank Goodness and For Good. Both ladies brought down the house and received much deserved standing ovations!
