For those who don't know what I am talking about (Follow me through Facebook to know a lot more!) I am making an Indie Guide A-Z! This will be a huge project and a enormous pleasure to do! So .. what am I going to do? Everyday, I'm going to show you a different brand of Indie Nail Polishes (and some of their major stockists too!! )
* * *



Your Name: Charlotte Kastling

Brand Name: WellNails

Where are you from? A small country called Denmark. It's in Europe, right in the middle of Sweden and England.

When have you started? October 2012



Is there  a story behind the name of your brand? I wanted the name to be something creative, and the polishes to have an exclusive feeling about them. I always get such a good feeling of self-indulgence when I've got my nails done. So I thought of WellNails as a wordplay on 'wellness'. I was around other ideas, but it stuck to me. And so I'm trying to make my customers feel like they get exactly that - wellness for their nails, like my slogan says.


How many polishes/collections have you created? One collection that's growing and growing. Right now there's 27 shades available, but I have oh sooo many on the testing shelf right now.

Is there a special polish/collection? Why? Yes. As mentioned I only got one collection so far. The 'How I Met Your Mother'-collection. I have a serious dependency of that series and I watch it A.Lot! So the idea of getting inspired by it came quite naturally. Also I love the idea that all my little polishes have a history. The names and colors can be traced when you're watching the show, and I think that gives them more of an edge. 

Where you a polish addicted before starting making polishes? Lil' bit, yeah. I started becoming a serious polish addict in 2010, when I lived in England. Them British gals do care about their nail polish. And since 2011 I've written a Danish blog called http://polish4passion.dk



Did you have a blog before making polishes or have you started one after? I had one, as just mentioned. But I'm also telling the stories of my polishes on http://wellnails.dk


Whats your favorite thing about making polishes? The finding-what-glitters-to-mix-part, I think. I can lay awake at night thinking about a new shade and then I rush to sleep so that I can wake up early and start mixing. It's taking up all of my time! But I think the crutial thing is when I get responses from people that have tried them on. That really makes my day shine!

Can you tell us a curious thing that has happened to you with some client or something funny? I got kinda sad when someone says: I like your polishes, but I think the shipping prices are too high. Because I can't really do anything about that, and since I'm shipping from Denmark it's expensive to ship outside of Europe. But hey, it's the same when it's the other way around ;)

Is there anything you'd Like to share: I'm just overwhelmed with the attention my brand is getting at the moment. I'm so happy that people seem to like what I'm doing, and I really hope that I'll be able to continue doing it for a long time, even though it's hard right now.

Oh, Honey..!


This polish is a stunning gelish red polish with red and black glitter. I used no base color and it took 3 thin coats for full opacity. I applies very nicely and the glitters spread evenly. Drying time was quite fast, around 6 mins and lasted for 3 days. I loved the outcome! Check for yourself and let me know if you like it!
Este verniz da WellNails é um lindissimo glitter de acabamento gelish repleto de glitter preto e vermelho. Não apliquei qualquer cor base tendo usado apenas 3 finas camadas para o resultado abaixo. Aplica-se com muita facilidade e os glitters espalham-se bem. Cerca de 6 mins de tempo de secagem e durou-me cerca de 3 dias. Adorei o resultado. E voces, o que acharam?
