Before you watch Team USA nail their landings, get nailed, courtesy of Vanity Projects. The new venture from underground manicure party host Rita de Alencar Pinto launches tomorrow in Chelsea.

Reserve your spot at the shindig for Olympic- (and more) inspired manis by Naomi Yasuda, Fleury Rose, The Illustrated Nail, and El Salonsito. The latter two will also be camped out upstate in Pinto’s Summer Tour RV at the NADA Hudson art fair doing nails and screening Italian collective Alterazioni Video’s newest series Turbo Films.

Talk about a perfect ten.
