Nail polish was this one subject that just continuously came back up. Obviously, I’ve been wearing polish for 20 years. It started probably in 1998, that was the first time I started wearing black nail polish and then Josh and I started talking. It just slowly but surely became this reality that hey, we should do this! And we CAN do this. Then, the real inspiration came from both of my girls.

meet the founders
AJ McLean, not a stranger to the red carpet or stages around the world, can be found shining his brightest at home with his wife, Rochelle, and two daughters, Ava Jaymes and Lyric Dean.
His enthusiasm for nail polish dates back more than 20 years. So, naturally when the girls became of age to paint their nails, AJ jumped at the opportunity to have daddy-daughter time.
Joshua is also no stranger to the entertainment world. Being a bodyguard for both AJ McLean and Howie Dorough of the Backstreet Boys for 14+ years, Joshua has made industry connections through his years working as a bodyguard for BSB, Justin Timberlake, The Weeknd, Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen, and more.
Josh has jumped head first into the cosmetics industry when starting Ava Dean Beauty with AJ in 2016. After extensive product research, he and AJ launched the first products for Ava Dean Beauty in November 2020.
We believe in inclusive bonding moments and connecting in ways that allow you to be uniquely you. Beauty is about expressing yourself, no matter who you are, and sharing your true self with each other.
