* * *



Your Name: Carmen

Brand Name: Too Fancy Lacquer

Where are you from? Australia, currently living in Hong Kong

When have you started? June 2013

Is there a story behind the name of your brand? My bf has a saying (taken from a rap song called, you guess it, 'Fancy') that goes "Too Fancy huh", and it just somehow got stuck! 

How many polishes/collections have you created? There are 10 polishes in the current lineup, but I have also done many custom polishes for friends.

Is there a special polish/collection? Why? My current collection is pretty special to me, since it is my very first one, and they are holos!!

Do you have a best seller? Tell Me A Sea-cret, a seaform green linear holo

Where you a polish addicted before starting making polishes? Totally! 

Did you have a blog before making polishes or have you started one after? I have been blogging about polishes a couple years before I started Too Fancy Lacquer. I'm not a big time blogger, I mostly do it just for fun, and to share my pretties! My blog is called Polish Me Up! (http://cacanails.blogspot.hk/)

Whats your favorite thing about making polishes? I love getting lost in all the different colors, textures, and finishes! The magical thing about making polishes is that by varying your formula/combination, you could end up with a totally different polish. How awesome is that!


Can you tell us a curious thing that has happened to you with some client or something funny? 

One day while I was mixing up polishes, I accidentally knocked off the entire bottle of green colorant. There was green liquid everywhere; on the coffee table, floor, couch, and worst of all, all over my face and body! I was turned into Hulk! Immediately I tried to clean myself off with acetone, but it wasn't doing the job (colorant is a pretty concentrated dye!). So I tried to use alcohol swipe to clean my skin, and although it helped a little bit, my skin was stung bad because I have very sensitive skin. 

After trying to clean myself off for two hours to no avail, I jumped onto Goggle for suggestions. Turned out it was not difficult to remove oil-based colorant at all! All you needed to do was to clean the affected area with soup, then wiped your skin with Baby Oil, rinsed it off with warm water, and voila! I was human again! Thank goodness for the Internet!


Do you ship international? I definitely do!
