Color Street is only five years old (as of 2022) but its history goes back much further! My guess is that you don’t know all of these 20 facts about Color Street, the founder, the product and what’s coming for the future.
#1 – Fa Park, our Founder
Fa Park came to the US from Korea on a music scholarship. When he saw. awoman trying to pain her nails with liquid polish in a towncar on the streets of NYC, he was inspired and knew their had to be another way. So he started the long journey of creating Color Street nail strips.
#2 – Made in the USA
From start to finishe, Color Street products are Made in the USA, Clifton, NJ to be exact. This includes R&D (more on that later), packaging and product creation. The home office team is also based in Clifton and all the marketing, product design, training and more come out of that office.
#3 – Real Nail Polish
Each strip contains a base coat, polish layer and top coat all in one. That makes it really fast and easy to apply and helps with the longevity of the manicure.

Color Street is constantly come up with new designs, products and it’s all done in house. Our lead chemist is also feale which I think is pretty awesome!
#5 – Easily Removed with Nail Polish Remover
