GLOSSLAB, a hygiene-first, membership-based nail studio operator, currently has locations in NY, NJ, CT, Washington D.C., MD, TX and FL. Rachel Apfel Glass founded GLOSSLAB in 2018 with a mission to modernize the nail studio experience with its hygiene-first, membership-based concept. After giving birth to her second daughter, Glass made her dreams a reality, and founded GLOSSLAB on three key pillars including: Hygiene, Efficiency, and Membership. In addition to focusing on the client experience, Glass believed it was equally important to provide employees with a safe working environment, fair wages, and a true career path. GLOSSLAB prides itself on being totally water free, as water is a breeding ground for germs. Hygiene is GLOSSLAB’s guarantee, with strict measures in place long before COVID-19 guidelines were developed. The future-forward studio features technology-enhanced services (online booking, cashless payment, contactless check-in and check-out) and performance-based products at the forefront of beauty and nail trends including best-in-class long-lasting vegan polish, gel, and non-toxic polishes. In addition to their in-person manicure and pedicure offerings, the brand launched a line of self-care must-haves including a full line of proprietary polishes, at-home mani and pedi kits, nail treatments, hand creams and foot creams and more – to bring the GLOSSLAB experience into homes everywhere.
