Pink decor, manicures, champagne and good company is the way to any woman’s heart, so adding a good cause and a celebrity line-up to the mix was the perfect equation for the unforgettable launch of Q&A Nail Lacquer at New York City’s Gallery Bar.
Recording artist Bridget Kelly hosted “Paint For Life,” the special launch of Q&A Nail Lacquer, a NEW 5-free, non-toxic and Vegan-friendly nail polish line. Q&A painted the town with their pink shade – “Lady Q” for Breast Cancer Awareness month – and introduced media, celebrities, tastemakers, influencers and nail art enthusiasts to their collection.
Guests enjoyed complimentary pink manicures from celebrity nail techs, passed hors d’oeuvres from Mamajuana Cafe, Svedka cocktails, and a silent auction of “pink” inspired art (including a one of a kind piece from NYC Artist Sue Tsai) took place to raise funds for the fight against Breast Cancer. VH1‘s very own DJ Amanda Seales provided the soundtrack for the evening.
In attendance were Bridget Kelly, VH1 Mob Wives‘ Ramona Rizzo, Love & Hip-Hop: NY‘s Erica Mena, NY Jets Player Leger Douzable, Amanda Seales and more! Not to mention this was all for a great cause: benefiting Breast Cancer Awareness.
Of course, we had to chop it up with the lady of the night, Bridget, who was decked out in some custom nail art using “Lady Q” and “I Heart New York” colors from the new collection. Check it out below.
On who she wants to work with in the future:
“Honestly, I really love working with everybody. I’m spoiled, I have Jay Z as my mentor, my big brother, just coming out of the gate, it has really been a blessing.
I wanna work with Timbaland, I want to work with Pharrell, I want to work with all these guys that have been like super cool and friendly and really supportive of me from day one. So I think that’s the next step for me.”
On her personal nail regimen:
“I’m obsessed, I get weekly pedicures, that’s the thing. I don’t do the fancy stuff, I just need a scrub, a nice little polish, a little rub, that’s how I treat myself. It’s very therapeutic for me. I don’t get a lot of time to myself, so that’s down time for me, is a nice pedicure.”
Her favorite nail polish:
“Lincoln Park is a color that I love, Big Apple Red by OPI is actually my all time favorite color. It’s very fitting, very fitting, it’s a very big one.”
On her obsession with Scandal:
“Let me tell you that Hulu is the greatest app that they’ve ever come up with for iPad for me. Because I’m in the airport and if get caught in delay I’m like, “OK, wifi…HULU” And I’m catching up on all the shows I don’t ordinarily get to watch in the week. You know it’s never gonna work out with Fitz, I just think we’re all just a hopeless romantic. Honestly the character that I’ve come to love is Mellie, I ride for Melilie. Mellie is a G, this last episode she was sipping her little hooch, like ‘let me tell you something I’m still in the game. I’m still here, I’m still alive, I’m not going nowhere.’ I mess with Mellie. She’s a gangsta.”
During the month of October, $1 from each purchase of “Lady Q” will be donated to the Young Survival Coalition, so be sure to purchase yours now for a good cause! Check out the gallery below for a closer look at the event’s festivities.
