Live Love Polish made the list of Forbes “30 Under 30” in Retail and eCommerce. The company aims to be a nail polish retailer for both consumers and salon professionals alike.

The New York-based company was formed two years ago by immigrant brother and sister Michelle and Wayne Lin, after Michelle dropped out of NYU to teach herself how to code. The company does its own web design, customer service, packing, and shipping in-house.

Live Love Polish has grown into a multi-million dollar business since then and sells everything from polish, to nail art and treatments, to makeup. According to the company, Live Love Polish’s website generated 50 million new visitors in 2016 and has nearly 1 million followers on Instagram and Facebook.

Their online store sells brands such as Color Club and NCLA, and has been featured in Popsugar, Nylon Magazine, Harper’s Bazaar, and Refinery29.
