As you might expect, Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, the co-founder and creative visionary behind OPI Products, has quite a story to tell. In her new memoir, I’m Not Really a Waitress, Weiss-Fischmann explains how OPI transformed from a small dental supply company into an iconic beauty brand, and how she herself evolved from “little Suzi Weiss,” an eager if somewhat awkward young immigrant, into the “First Lady of Nails,” as one fashion editor dubbed her.

Business lessons and inspiration for the next generation of entrepreneurs are threaded throughout the book, and each chapter is titled after an OPI lacquer, such as Toucan Do It If You Try, Don’t Bossa Nova Me Around, and We the Female. Above all, it’s a story about the power of color, which, as Weiss-Fischmann says, “can empower you to imagine and do and be more than you ever suspected possible.”
