Your Name: Nastassia

Brand Name: Ooh La Lacquer

Where are you from? Los Angeles, California

When have you started? Summer 2012


Is there a story behind the name of your brand? Coming up with the name of my brand was the hardest part ever! I came up with dozens of names that got axed because they were either too corny, didn't make sense, or I wasn't in love with it. Then one day my sister picked up one of my polishes, said "Oooh La La", a lightbulb went on over my head, & I jazzed it up to "Ooh La Lacquer".

How many polishes/collections have you created? I've created 2 collection and a total of 15 polishes.

Is there a special polish/collection? Why? The Collection that's most special to me is my Dangerous in Matte Collection. The polishes consists of fine, matte glitters and what makes these polishes special are the names. Each polish is named after one my favorite songs and I replaced one of the words with matte. For example, I Kissed a Matte is named from I Kissed a Girl by Katy Perry.

Where you a polish addicted before starting making polishes? Yes! My first nail polish related memory is on my 13th birthday when I got my first set of acrylics and I started buying cheap, $2 polishes. I didn't know much about big brands I just wanted all the colors of the rainbow. Then two years ago when Katy Perry released her collection I went crazy. In two years my collection grew from 40 to 560!

Did you have a blog before making polishes or have you started one after? Yes, once I began to realize I had a problem I started to blogging to keep track of my craziness. I mostly blog about my hauls, deals I've found, swatches, and my poor attempts at nail art.


Whats your favorite thing about making polishes? I love everything about making polishes. From the trial & error stage to the naming them. My most favorite part is when an idea in my head is interpreted precisely in the bottle.


Can you tell us a curious thing that has happened to you with some client or something funny? My customers are amazing! They're sweet messages and kind feedback make me strive to create more beautiful polishes in the future. I sincerely appreciate them all.
