Date: July 27. Venue: Vanity Projects
Nail art curator Rita De Alencar Pinto celebrates a year at the upscale Vanity Projects, New York’s hottest nail art destination, with special hosts, nail polish gurus Janine Lee & Aretha Sack of Floss Gloss.
Treats of the night included strawberry shortcake, drinks by Perrier and complimentary manicures by Mimi, Kayo, Spifster & Astrowifey, with summer colors by Floss Gloss.
Janine tells Jesenia’s Goodie Bag she and Aretha have been busy coordinating their Fall 2014 Collection, which will début August 2014, followed by a Brooklyn photoshoot for their newest Lookbook. Another big achievement for the girls is launching their brand at Brooklyn’s Space.NK.apothecary and Urban Outfitters.
The nail polish emoji, famously used on Floss Gloss social media is art imitating life as Aretha wore her very own emoji inspired mini flare skirt. She tells Jesenia’s Goodie Bag Editor that Birchbox (known for their tailored made service of all things beauty & grooming) recently opened a store in SoHo and are launching Floss Gloss products. Adding to the list of Floss Gloss goodys are the newly released nail accessories and jewelry pieces, made available on their website.
Originally from San Francisco, Aretha & Janine made the move to New York and are residing in Brooklyn (as told in Nylon magazine’s August 2014 issue). As Aretha puts it, the recent move allows them to be closer to their vendors and the magazine editors that helped them launch their career.
