The founder of Trinkitz is Mandy Retsuko, a 22 year old queer & nonbinary Vietnamese artist. They are a first generation graduate from the University of North Texas with a cum laude bachelor's degree in Media Arts and a minor in Women's and Gender Studies. They've always dreamed of making a sustainable living off of their art to take care of their loved ones.

Nail artistry has been in their life since before they were born. Their mother was a nail technician for about 10 years, and they grew up in the salon watching her do nails everyday. When they were in high school they started doing their own nails, and the rest is history.

In August of 2020, they released their first Trinkitz press-on nail sets! In 2021, they released several collections ranging from blinged smoking accessories, exclusive nail sets, and blinged clothing items.

Each nail set is handmade with intention and hard work. Everything that goes into Trinkitz is at the hands of Mandy Retsuko. Trinkitz has been featured in Paper Magazine, The Face Magazine, and Shoutout HTX.
