Last Friday, I attended the opening exhibit for the Future Development at the Yard. It was an interesting bar with painted wall scenes of an industrial wasteland glowing neon green and purple under the black lights. It was a fun atmosphere and the graffiti was played as a slideshow on the flat screen tvs hanging through out the venue. I almost didn’t get in because I forgot my ID, but fortunately (or unfortunately) I don’t look 21 anymore. I didn’t get to take any pictures because I forgot my camera. but you can check out some pictures on their site or the exhibit.
- EXHIBIT DATE: May 6 – 13, 2010
- LOCATION: Loft 676 – 676 Broadway (b/w Great Jones/W. 3rd St and Bond) SoHo, NYC
- GALLERY HOURS: Sun. May 9 – Thurs. May 13; 10am-4pm
I also had a chance to meet Myrdith from M2M Natural Nails. She was offering manicures with her line of natural nail polish, M2M, and a Minx design on each hand. She did an amazingly quick and neat job (not easy considering the poor lighting in there). But then I learned that Myrdith is also a celebrity nail technician who flies around the world to do fashion shows, as well as photoshoots for magazines such as Elle. I was excited because it was my first time getting Minx done on my nail. The color I chose for my nails were bright cherry red and the Minx was a floral pattern. If you don’t know what Minx is, check out my previous post and their website. M2M nail polish is natural and free of formaldehyde and other chemicals. At $11 a pop, pretty reasonably priced. Part of the proceeds from M2M sales also goes toward Haiti. So yes, you can have pretty nails and do good!
