Suzi Weiss-Fischmann is a co-founder and brand ambassador of OPI Products, a global nail care products company. Suzi founded the company with George Schaeffer as a dental supply business in 1981 before adapting their products to the acrylic nail market. It came to redefine the nail industry and Suzi became known as the First Lady of Nails. In this episode, we look back at a conversation with Suzi from April 2019. She discusses her immigrant story of success and her book “I’m Not Really a Waitress: How One Woman Took Over the Beauty Industry One Color at a Time.” Suzi recounts the highlights and setbacks of creating and scaling OPI, and she reveals how she develops colors and names them.
