On this week’s Sew & Tell, I speak with the co-founder of the hottest new fashion start-up around: NailSnaps. NailSnaps is an app that allows you to design custom manicure sets using your own personal photos, and when word got out about its Kickstarter campaign, the fashion community was universally smitten. Join me for a conversation with NailSnaps co-founder Angel Anderson, who talks about how she got the initial idea for this brilliant concept, how she and Sarah Heering have developed the design platform, the countless creative possibilities that NailSnaps offer, the benefits and challenges of using Kickstarter for a fashion start-up, and more.

Plus, a great playlist chock-full of new music including the latest from folk artists S. Carey and William Fitzsimmons, garage/psych rockers Burnt Ones and Dry Heeves, and the new supergroup Sisyphus. So tune in, grab a nail file, and get ready for the manicure revolution!
