Floss Gloss Hits The Nail On The Head

One glance at our Instagram feeds and it’s pretty apparent that the nail-art trend is showing absolutely no signs of slowing — as evidenced by our blockbuster fall phalange guide. And, here in S.F., we know how to do it up right — with O.P.I. channeling S.F. for a collection, techie sites connecting artists and customers, and now, Floss Gloss, a luxury varnish brand that has the folks at major magazines like Lucky and companies like UO singing its praises.
The newbie nail brand was founded by two CCA students, Arthea Sack and Janine Lee, after bonding over color swatches, rap music, and fashion. The two then forged ahead with creating quirky polishes — with adorable packaging — and an online hub to share pictorial inspiration and nail-art culture. The best part? All of Floss Gloss polishes are sans DBPs, Tolene, Formaldehyde Resin, and Formaldehyde — basically none of the icky stuff that comes in these pint-sized bottles. It’s safe to say these two hit the nail on the head, and we’re keeping a keen eye on ‘em and embellishing our digits with Floss Gloss' far-out new collection dubbed Princess of the Night. Watch out, Essie, there’s a new nail kid on the block.
