What really makes this store stand out (aside from the charming owners) is the really cool selection of beauty products that are mixed into its rad home and lifestyle inventory. It's not uncommon to see something here and not elsewhere. We likie.
Top Seller: Jin Soon Nail Polish
"A killer apothecary treat that is flying off the shelves is the new nail lacquer Jin Soon," says co-owner Jim Wetzel. The nail artist extraordinaire behind the brand, Jin Soon Choi, includes everything, from Louis Vuitton campaigns to Vogue and Bazaar covers to the Fashion Week events, in her portfolio, adds Wetzel. "Her nail polishes are devoid of all the bad 3s, are insanely pigmented lacquers, and last for weeks! We can hardly keep them in stock!"
Jin Soon Nail Polish, $18, available at Space519.
Wetzel's Pick: Rodin Olio Lusso
"Beauty icon Linda Rodin has created a face oil that truly turns back time: Olio Lusso! Essential oils used as moisturizer really create a youthful glow, diminishes fine lines, and has a white flower fragrance that is intoxicating. I have clients that start this process and see amazing results in two weeks. It is addictive as well as a lovely way to start the day."
