What: Essie Cosmetics opens its doors to the first nail salon in the world. The space features bright white lacquered surfaces accented by colourful leather love seats in some of the most iconic Essie shades. The New York location boasts mani and pedi services in more than 250 polish colours.
Who: Essie Weingarten, founder and global creative director of Essie cosmetics and Peter Millard, interior designer. The salon opens in partnership with L’Oréal Profesionnel and Samuel Shriqui.
Soundbite: “This is the day I have long lived for. It is such a surreal experience for me to walk down East 65th Street (between Madison and Park) in Manhattan, and see my name on the awning of the salon!” says Weingarten.
