I was on this day that the first long playing record I'm talking about the gigantic album that we all know his albums 33, a third rpm recording albums, it was demonstrated at the Savoy Plaza Hotel in New York City by R. C. A victor. Well, the venture was due to fell from beginning do the high price of record players back then, right? It's called a record player and watch this He played the album, but the problem is what sort of science is this rotary records? Record players started at $95 Say what? $95 in 1930 price of a house, but it it was $1120 in today's dollars. And what's even worse than that? Is Think about the time frame. I said 1931 great, Great depression. That was night now 29 to mid ther said 30. What? Know what Which ones with 70 eights. The records that were 70. The big ones. Is that the one you're talking about? 33 3rd. This is an album. Okay, right. Okay when it was debut today. Let's fast forward a 30 plus years 33 years to September 17th 1964.

That equates to being $1,250,000 for one show the ticket cost for that Kansas City stadium show $4.50. Wow and that was a lot of money back so Yeah, that is that is crazy. Kansas City.

Kenya at the time when reports started breaking story. There's a lot of people that believe that by the way that Paul actually is, yes, yes, that he died then and they were placed in way. How come he's wearing shoes on the Abbey Road? What? How do you know if you spin Abbey Road backwards and you stand on 1 ft and put a toe in a toaster will tell you who really took the place of Paul McCartney.

"I just left samples at every every beauty salon and less than a hundred in nineteen eighty-one an every hotel spa. I left them a little plastic bag with twelve collison. Listen three treatments and I call me if you like it. Within two weeks every single one of them called and placed in order. I was like I have a the business. You're in your early thirties. At the time you remember even that trip to Las Vegas with all of this nail Polish in your bag absolutely it was like guest today. We went to Kennedy airport because it was a nonstop flight And you were allowed to take whatever you wanted on the plane I mean I must have had ten cartons weighing sixty four pounds. Each there was no not a problem. If you had ten suitcases. They took ten suitcases. So you've got this approval from Las Vegas immediately but you also. I walked the streets of New York City. which is your hometown? Can you tell us about what with that. Look like absolutely. I was very organized so I started on ninety sixth street. I did ninety six ninety fifth ninety four ninety third from York. Ah To fifth then. I took eighty sixth street and went down from. They are than I did. The West Side. I mean we years ago. They weren't nail salons in every corner. I know you can't believe it. They were beauty salons and parlours beauty. Parlours exactly some of the salons listed in in the yellow pages. I didn't have cell phone. Can you imagine and you'd go up and they were like really not salons and you would run down the stairs because he wasn't even elevators in the building. What were they something like lady? What are you doing here and I said? I don't think I belong here. Let me leave the salon right. Did you have a problems with making enough to fill the demand as well. The truth of the matter is When I first started? I didn't think I'd ever be able to sell all the bottles that I had to. Because it was a minimum of gallons that you had to buy it and I'll never they get they said to me The minimum order is fifty five gallons and I went and how many puddles do I get from one gallon. One Gallon is two hundred. Oh my God how am I going to sell one color and ten thousand exactly and it was like not a problem because if the colors right and the quality is right it's give me. Everyone wants it. The names that you come up with really are auto auto biographical in a way they come from some fragment of your life. Can you give examples. I mean we have such funny stories. We were doing a trade show in Mexico Sicko city and we went to hail a cab and we saw the traffic wasn't moving so we said never mind now in Mexico City the taxis a little Volkswagen bugs and the taxi drivers wear white gloves and they open the door with like this little handle thing and I went. Never mind never mind as he a yells at us. Sandy beach it was like he was practicing this curse and he knew I was American and he well. Needless to say I had to come up with a color. Alec Colson. Beat but you know we were in Paris July fourth and I fell on my behind. It was pouring rain. We will going to Kathy for quite so I came up with the color right after that very quickly called cafe forgot because I never want to forget cafe for quite when we were looking for a home in the Hamptons so I came out with a collection and the colors were like very important because it was south of the highway or Montauk the end and would soon road or picket fence. It was something to do with the beach and everyone said to me. Oh the HAMPTONS. Who's going to know about the Hamptons? Only people in New York walk will. It turned out that everyone in Europe wanted the Hampton collection. Everyone in Asia Watch at the Hampton Everyone in the Middle East want to Hampton so it was just I have to have the the Hampton collection because everyone wants a piece of the hamptons going back to the early days of getting interest from New York salons. Do you have any recollections elections of one or two Part beauty parlours that really helped to escalate sales for you absolutely There was a place called nail nook on Second Avenue. It's no longer there. And Seventy I guess it was seventy Fifth Street and then Ruzica to Philippa. We had a Josephine Allen who was on top of yellow fingers and now she's a SC flagship salon on sixty fifth between Madison and and Park for the first few years you had a different bottle now. There's this iconic bottle that's square-shaped and it has your name. Se Let's see. Your real name was esther but you're never call that down the side. How did you decide to make that shift? Well when I first started and I went to the glass company I said I wanted my own mold and he said to will have your own mold. You have to sell at least two million bottles a year and I went. Oh my God. How am I going to do that? Well shortly thereafter within the first four years I was able to do it with no problem. Two consecutive years and the bottle manufacturer said to me. If you really WanNa do your oh mold we can do it. And I said it's really important to me I needed something. That would be very uncomfortable in the manicurist hand. 'cause she's holding the bottle all day. I always like very angular things. I like straight lines nine. I'm not about round this and I came up with this bottle which is round on the inside but square on outside and all the edges are soft round. So it's fits right into the nail ticks hand and the weight is evenly distributed now. The anatomy of a bottle is as you described the bottle itself. But there's also the brush and there's a little metallic is it a steel ball inside a two stainless steel mixing. Pulse if you have one. It doesn't do anything you need. The friction of the two balls hitting each other. And that's just to keep everything blended so so you just roll it in your hands. You don't shake it because the two mixing bowls can break through the glass so you roll it and you keep the Polish Nice and fresh and the brush rush. Is there anything special about the hairs or anything. Absolutely our brushes custom made for us. All the brushes had one hundred ninety nine hairs. I and we always kept the brushes very thin so you can get into the corners so you have a nice neat manicure you grew up in Hollis hills else queens and your father ran a party rental business And he died when you were sixteen and then your mom took over the business correct. He he died a week. Before my sixteenth birthday pancreatic cancer and my mother would never worked a day in her life. She was you know she was.

"Absolutely. Do you know where the max stores Fifth Avenue and fifty ninth street, that's they used to be a hotel quote, the Savoy plaza hotel. And that's what Ralph had his apothecary, and we'd go visit uncle Ralph on Sunday after the Lower East Side, and my dad would let me pick colors that I would hold in my hand as my conscience that whole week I wanna talk about partnerships the most important of which was with your husband max or Tino. Who was the CEO for awhile? Yes. And before you sold the company to Al, how did you meet max met max in California at a trade show. He wanted to buy the only publication that was available at that time, which was called mainly manicuring in instead of purchasing mainly manicuring. He met this e and he was really originally from. Rome, Italy and living in California. And at the time he he was he was in business with his ex wife selling jewelry for the nails, correct. You know everyone said, oh ESI, you need a European man. The only ones that will understand a woman business and and it was just a great fit. And what point did he join you in the business? Was that a no-brainer or the take? Some once he moved to New York, he joined me. I'm max was always the visionary. I didn't have the name in the glass. I just felt that every salon loved the polish and they would put their own label on it. And he said, who's putting their label on it? So it was his idea to pass the absolutely good idea. Not all of them, but most of them. What were some ungodly deals of? Well, everyone wanted to a lipstick to match the nail polish and you know everyone would ask you for it, and it is a great idea. But there no makeup artist in the salons, telling the woman, try this color. It looks great on you. It just sits there collecting dust. So how long did you dabble in lipstick? Oh, probably about five years. We didn't give up right away. You know the truth of the matter is it ESI was born about colors. I mean, that's what I'm known for colors on my life. What is your apartment look like? Is it colorful? No, it's not as a matter of fact, because I was always working in color. So the apartment is very much white and doc Brown, lots of woods, different woods, different texters, very simple because everything else is what I do every single day, my life, what other mistakes, plenty of mistakes. If we didn't make mistakes, we would've never grown. Oh, we came out with a second line that was a mistake. It was called max, and then we had to change the name to club max because one of our competitors went to jeez and said, we would trading under the name of max factor, which it was not max factor was my husband max Angie again, g. did you ever have other investors? Never. So it was all run by your sales, all the capital that sit from the your sales. And of course, I'm of the to me, you know, you have a year and you'll see what happens. And she said, if it doesn't work, it wouldn't be Szanto, which is a shame. And that's all I had to hear. I said, you'll wait and see. There'll be no shame here. Your mom was she helpful in the business? Of course she became to trade shows. I mean, she's amazing. I mean, she's the rock. She really gave us very good values and we all had to work and she never takes no for an answer. You know, we've learned that from her and. You brought up in a religious household? Well, we had two sets of dishes. We had a coach. But what's of times that we mixed up the silverware and it was like, oh my God, you have to put it in the dirt outside afri- would say, oh, you, you have flowers and silverware growing in your garden. So you know, fun things always fun. I'm Jessica Harris. You're listening to from scratch. My guest is essie Weingarten founder of ESI, a nail polish company with more than three hundred colors. SE is available in roughly twenty five thousand salons in over one hundred countries..
