Comments: Nail lacquer is big for American International Industries—led by its nail salon staple China Glaze. The brand, like others in this fashion-forward category, continues to roll out limited edition colors to keep things fresh. Its most recent is The Giver, a limited edition line based on the movie of the same name that’s due out this summer.
Last year, American International Industries grew its footprint in the hair color category by acquiring Jerome Russell.
With more than 30 years of experience in color, Jerome Russell is best known for its Punky Colour brand of semi-permanent hair color—which offers 20 eye-popping choices from bright yellow to apple green to flamingo pink— as well as temporary hair color sprays, “BBlonde” kits and more.
