The world of denim is full of amazing brands with constantly changing styles and pieces, and denim also happens to be one of this spring’s hottest trends. That makes this the perfect time for denim line AGOLDE to launch in ten Nordstrom stores, celebrating each launch with a series of in-store events featuring nail artist Mei Kawajiri of Nails by Mei. At select Nordstrom locations in March, Mei will offer an exclusive nail art manicure as a gift with the purchase of a pair of these uber cool jeans.

The event series kicks off in Chicago on March 4 at the Michigan Ave store, followed by the Oakbrook location on March 5. Next, the pop-up event travels to Washington at the Seattle and Bellevue Nordstrom locations on March 10. Mei will then continue to Southern California for her last two stops at The Grove in Los Angeles on March 11, and Fashion Island in Newport Beach on March 12. She will offer special designs based on region including Chicago pizza, Los Angeles Lakers and Seattle Seahawk logos. All events will be held in the Savvy department at Nordstrom.
