Who knew that the result of happy childhood memories mixed with red nail polish and a devastating diagnosis could be responsible for the creation of a nail care product line?
Born in New Orleans, "The Big Easy," Louisiana, LaPierre Cosmetics was inspired by the founder's mother, J.M. LaPierre. She was a woman who embodied elegance and class whom also loved to polish and take care of her nails.
For years, LaPierre created many fond memories with her daughter, over a fresh bottle of red nail lacquer. On August 30, 2013, LaPierre was diagnosed with lung cancer. A few weeks after receiving her diagnosis, LaPierre moved from Louisiana to Maryland to begin chemotherapy and radiation treatments at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore. The move gave her daughter the honor of being her caregiver, and enabled them to carry on a tradition that, in recent years, had been limited by the thousands of miles between them.
Unfortunately, LaPierre lost her battle with lung cancer on Jan. 1, 2014. In her memory, LaPierre Cosmetics supports and is an official sponsor to the LIVESTRONG Foundation, committing to help empower people in the cancer community addressing unmet needs.
LaPierre lacquers are "5 Free" and do not contain five harmful chemicals that are found in many nail polishes (Formaldehyde Resin, formaldehyde, toluene, camphor or dibutyl phthalate (DBP). LaPierre products are not tested on animals and is manufactured in the United States of America. But the advantages don't end there! LaPierre lacquers are also cruelty-free, vegan and proudly made in the USA. The deeply-admired luxury nail polish brand continues to allure the polish world with its creamy formula and chic logo.
