Known worldwide as the "First Lady of Nails," OPI Co-Founder & Brand Ambassador Suzi Weiss-Fischmann initially made her mark on the beauty industry in 1989, when she created the first 30 OPI nail lacquers. Thanks to her keen eye for color, several of these shades still remain bestsellers in OPI's classics collection, including OPI Red, Malaga Wine and Coney Island Cotton Candy.
In her 35 years at OPI, Suzi has continued to set trends for the nail industry. She ignited the dark nail revolution with the deep purple Lincoln Park After Dark, was the first to add real diamond dust to nail lacquer, and mainstreamed nail art with Shatter by OPI.
Suzi has created thousands of iconic OPI shades, including I'm Not Really a Waitress, one of her best-known colors, which has been heralded as the perfect shade of red by women across the globe. Allure inducted this lacquer into its Beauty Hall of Fame in 2011, after it won the Best Nail Polish award nine times.
Suzi pioneered the development of OPI partnerships, elevating consumers' overall brand experience. Under her guidance, OPI became the first nail care brand to collaborate with Hollywood's top films and celebrities, as well as iconic companies including Coca-Cola, DELL and Ford Mustang.
As Brand Ambassador, Suzi serves as the voice of OPI, the world's largest professional nail brand. Suzi is the go-to authority for beauty editors and fashion designers alike, regularly contributing to stories both in the U.S. and internationally about nail care and color trends.
Born in Hungary, Suzi was attracted to the beauty world at an early age. She cultivated her instinct for color and style in the garment industry of New York City, where she also attained a degree from Hunter College. Suzi's passion for fashion translates into year after year of on-trend nail lacquer shades, worn by celebrities and consumers alike to accessorize the season's hottest looks.
Suzi places a strong emphasis on philanthropic contributions through the Fischmann Family Foundation, which focuses on education. The Fischmann Family Foundation provides scholarships and financial aid at various institutions. "I strongly believe that education is one the most important things we can provide our children. No one can take away from you what you learn, and with education comes so many other opportunities," Suzi explains.
Suzi lives in Los Angeles with her husband and two children.
In March 2019, her autobiography titled "I'm Not Really a Waitress: How One Woman Took Over the Beauty Industry One Color at a Time" was published. For more information, visit
