During Essence Music Festival in July 2010, Maisha Teacher owner of BiBi Salon and I were talking backstage about her salon opening. We discussed all the different products to carry and I shared with her my favorite nail polish company called PRITI NYC. PRITI NYC is an organic non-toxic nail polish line own by Kim D’Amato. PRITI NYC has a sexy following from A-List celebrities to trendy fashionista. Just last week many of the models fingers were painted backstage at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week.
So if you want to keep up with the latest look in nail colors this fall, stop by BIBI Salon in Upper Manhattan/Harlem.
My favorite summer nail color from PRITI NYC this fall will be; Stemless Gentian…a dark purple/grape color.
Priti NYC’s “Blue Eyed Brunette” to make its TV Debut on HBO’s “Boardwalk Empire”.
The highly anticipated new HBO series “Boardwalk Empire” premiers on Sunday, and with it will come the debut of the new Priti NYC nail shade, “Blue Eyed Brunette”. Directed by Martin Scorsese and starring Steve Buscemi, “Boardwalk Empire” tells the tale of New Jersey in the 1920’s at the dawn of Prohibition. Blue Eyed Brunette will be used on the show’s female characters to compliment the vibe of 1920’s fashion on the Atlantic City boardwalk.
Priti NYC founder and CEO Kim D’amato collaborated with the show’s makeup team to develop the custom opaque, peachy pink shade. Inspired by and reminiscent of the era, the shade reflects both the buoyant mood of the swinging 1920’s and the subdude mentality of the Great Depression that followed soon afterward. The collaboration with “Boardwalk Empire” is just one of many recent TV projects for Priti NYC.
The brand’s polishes are used on ABC’s “Pretty Little Liars”, SiTV’s “Model Latina”, and most recently, Showtime’s “The Big C”. Inspired by the dark comedy’s plot revolving around a woman battling cancer, the collaboration with “The Big C” came from the show’s makeup team, who wanted to use only non-toxic products on set. HBO’s “Boardwalk Empire” premiers on Sunday, September 19th at 9 pm. “The Big C” appears on Showtime every Tuesday at 10:30 pm EST.
Stephanie wanted a nail color for her nails that would look great on tv. Out of my makeup kit I gave her Priti NYC one of my favorite nail polish color called “hard water lily”, a shimmering champagne color that looks great on all skin tones.

Here comes the bride, sashaying down the aisle with her shimmering champagne nails. A fabulous neutral undertone bridal nail color that I think looks great on any hand is “Hardy Water Lily” by Priti NYC, glamxurious color that will enhance the bling on your hand and compliment your wedding day accessories. This silver gold polish is a perfect spring color for runways, the fashion page, or white sandy beaches and Priti NYC offers a variety of luxurious shades for any destination wedding. Make sure you paint your hands with one of their luxurious colors on your special day.
Priti NYC is an eco-friendly non-toxic nail polish founded by Kim D’Amato in 2005 to change the world one manicure at a time. Their polishes are named after flowers and plants. They are fast drying, chip resistant, and have a high shine.

Beautifying from within, eco-friendly Priti NYC introduces a limited edition glass water bottle to its nail care line in celebration of Earth Day
Since it’s creation in 2005, Priti NYC has made it its mission to provide women with luxurious beauty products that help protect the environment‐one manicure at a time. This Earth Day, the renowned luxury and eco‐friendly nail polish brand has taken the idea of beautifying to the next level: starting from within. For a limited time, Priti NYC will be selling the Priti glass transportable water bottle in an effort to promote healthy habits for women and sustainability for the planet.
With over 4 billion water bottles ending up in land fills every year, encouraging the use of reusable water bottles seemed necessary for Priti NYC owner and founder, Kim D’Amato. “Our brand is continually finding new and innovative ways to bring the latest trends in nail polish, hand, and foot care to our customers, in the greenest and highest quality way possible”, said D’Amato. “ I loved the idea of taking this concept to the next level by encouraging women to drink more water, in a glamorous way that won’t contribute to the destruction of our environment.”
Made of maximum durability glass, the Priti Glass Water Bottle comes with a protective stainless steel cover that makes it highly unbreakable. It is also 100 % recyclable and indefinitely reusable, creating little impact on the environment. Glass drinking containers ensure a cleanliness that is not possible with plastic, but until now, have not been easily transportable. The bottles will be available for sale for a limited time on the company’s website at www.pritinyc.com for $34.95.
In honor of Earth Day, Priti NYC has also teamed up with d_parture spa™, the renowned airport day spa concept. The spa chain has opened the world’s first and only eco‐friendly airport spa at Newark Liberty International Airport, which utilizes exclusively Priti NYC products for nail and foot care.
Priti NYC’s famous luxury nail polishes are all completely free of toluene, dibutyl phthalate (DHB) and formaldehyde‐ known carcinogenic ingredients used in traditional nail polishes. Other products include a biodegradable soy nail polish remover, bath salts, and sugar scrubs for the hands and feet. The bottles used for packaging are also made of recycled materials and completely recyclable.
