Your Name: Katie
Store Name: Harlow & Co.

Where are you from? Kitchener, Ontario Canada
When have you started? Harlow & Co. was opened in October 2011.

Is there a story behind the name of your store? I've always been a big fan of old world glamour and I think that having your nails done makes you feel fun, glamourous and has a role in self-confidence - I chose Jean Harlow as the icon behind the name because she just embodied so much of that.

How many brands are you know working with? I'm currently working with 17 brands right now - but we're working on bringing in more in the new year!

Where you a polish addicted before starting the store? I definitely was - I think I started getting into doing my nails when I got engaged, I wanted to make sure my hands were just as pretty as the ring ;)


Did you have a blog before opening your store? I didn't have a blog before opening Harlow & Co. but I definitely stalked a lot of them and I still do!!
 
Whats your favorite thing about retailing nail polish? I love that getting Harlow packages in the mail makes people so excited - seeing people post "nail mail" photos on social media is so amazing - I have clients all over the world. I also love that I get to "meet" so many new people all the time - my customers are amazing and without them I wouldn't be doing this!!

Can you tell us a curious thing that has happened to you with some client or something funny? Hmm... there are a few things, but the one that comes to mind is when I first opened the shop, I hadn't told everyone about it and it just so happened that my husband's sister was my very first customer - she didn't even know it was my shop!!! :)

Is there anything you'd Like to share: I'd probably just like to thank Betty Nails for the honour of being included in her Indie Guide and that I hope to continue to make Harlow & Co. a fabulous place to shop for indie and international brands for all of my amazing customers!!
