Your Name: Sandy
Brand Name: Dandy Nails
Where are you from? Born and raised in sunny Southern California

When have you started? I started making polish late last year, in 2011, opened up my etsy shop in February of 2012 I believe.

Is there about a story behind the name of your brand? Not really, a nickname of mine has always been Sandy Dandy, so when I was searching for a YouTube name, I just landed on Dandy Nails, once it came time for me to name my polish brand I just basically got lazy and transferred that name over.

How many polishes/collections have you created? I've created quite a few, I'd say close to fifty if not more. That I've released though, about 25.


 Is there a special polish/collection? Why? I find all of my collections special, every single color I've made I fall in love with, and I believe that's the way it should be. Why release a color you don't absolutely love?


Where you a polish addict before starting making polishes? Oh yes! As I mentioned before, before I started making polishes I had a nail art channel (DandyNails) where along with nail art I also did haul and review swatch videos. My collection is up over 1,000 now.


Did you have a blog before making polishes or have you started one after? Before, after my YouTube channel gained popularity I wanted a place where I could just post my non nail art nails, I ended up making a blog (http://www.dandy-nails.com/), unfortunately, along with the YouTube channel, it ended up taking a backseat once I began polish making.


Whats your favorite thing about making polishes? The creative outlet, being able to make something pretty that not only I might love, but others as well.


Is there anything you'd Like to share: I truly love what I do, I take pride in my work and it's my priority to satisfy. I want to thank everyone from the bottom of my heart for the support I've received thus far. I'm floored and ever so thankful.
