I don’t know what I find cooler about this company: the fact that they carry cosmetics “for nerds, by nerds” (in their own words), or that it was founded by two girls, one certified MUD professional make-up artist and a Staff Sergeant in the United States Marine Corps while she was stationed in Iwakuni, Japan. Not only is impressive the fact that they went from a living room operation to an studio space (with 3 full time women employees), but that they started all this across the world from each other.

After launching a very cool mineral eye make up line ( with names such as Otaku, Gamer Girl, Comic Book and Paranormals) they are now embarking into a new venture: the first “Nerd Nail-Art” collection. They are doing it through Kickstarter, and are already incredibly close to their goal. Take a look at some of the pictures for the campaign (my favorite one is the “tentacle” design).
