After several pop-up nail art booths at events like the Brooklyn Artist's Ball at the Brooklyn Museum, Vanity Projects has opened a permanent atelier in Chinatown in New York City. The nail artists create designs inspired by the works of painters including Salvador Dali, Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol, Piet Mondrian, Rene Magritte, Jackson Pollock, and other well-known names in art history. 

In addition to the manicure, patrons of salon are given wireless headphones so that they can listen to the video art exhibition being shown on the walls, a welcome distraction to a process that can take an hour or more to complete. The exhibition schedule changes, as do the artists who are "in residence" for two weeks at a time, so customers should plan their experience accordingly.
