Suzi Weiss-Fischmann is the cofounder, brand ambassador, and creative visionary behind OPI Products, Inc. She has written a book to tell her story and to inspire women to pursue their own colorful dreams. I’m Not Really a Waitress:  How One Woman Took Over the Beauty Industry One Color at a Time tells the story of how Weiss-Fischmann transformed a small dental supply company into a beauty brand around the world.

Today, OPI is famous for its trend-setting nail colors, unforgettable polish shade names, and celebrity collaborations with the biggest stars from film, television, music, and sports. But behind all the glamour is the little-known tale of OPI’s unlikely origins-an intimate and inspiring story of a timid schoolgirl who arrives in this country with little money and no English and becomes the business leader and industry game-changer known worldwide as “Suzi, the First Lady of Nails.”
