StrangeBeautiful Nail Polish - Like A Josef Albers Painting

Just when you thought nothing else new could be done with nail polish, the StrangeBeautiful line of art worthy lacquers were introduced. The New York Times reported on this incredible new line of nail polish in the November 2, 2008 edition.

How did StrangeBeautiful come into creation? It all started with Jane Schub's shiny red Ettore Sottsass Valentine typewriter.

Jane, who is an illustrator and beauty entrepreneur, realized one day while starring at her red typewriter that it would make a fantastic shade of nail polish.  Indeed.  She also saw a Warhol painting at the Dia:Beacon museum that had an amazing shade of pink, again a great inspiration for a new nail polish.

The Warhol painting that Jane spotted also had black in it.  As she explained, the Warhol painting "was a little off".  Jane said "it (the Warhol painting) turned the corner from pink to something beautiful to look at."

Besides the red and pink,  Jane and her business partner Susan Strange started a collection of eight different StrangeBeautiful colors.  Definitely a nail color line that's very unique compared to the normal offerings.

What else makes StrangeBeautiful different?   Free of any labels and elegantly packaged as an entire color story, StrangeBeautiful offers limited collections.  One at a time.

As Jane explained it, just like one-of-a-kind artwork, when a StrangeBeautiful collection is sold out, it's done and will never be re-created.

The first collection for StrangeBeautiful includes a rainbow of vibrantly beautiful colors including A Midcentury  Modern Orange and An Art Nouveau Blue teal - inspired by the depths of a lake at night.

The collection, according to Jane "is like a Josef Albers painting".  Even better, this original collection is free of  traditional chemical "nasties" such as Formaldehyde, Toluene, and DBP (dibutyl phthalate).

Each of the eight individual bottles are beautifully designed to fit in the palm of your hand and includes a lush 220 strand brush for artistic application.

The StrangeBeautiful line is sold exclusively at Bergdorf Goodman.  For more information refer to
