Nail It!: How long have you been making your own polish?
Mia: It’s been about 4 months now, including the experimental stage.

I had been talking about my dream of making polish for a long time and my husband told me to go for it and gave me the push I needed to start creating.
What makes your line of lacquers unique?
I see each polish as an artwork. I take my time to perfect each polish before I announce a release. »
Is there a story behind your brand’s name?
Yes, I have an obsession with squares. Square glitters are my weakness! I had the hardest time deciding a name until I said to my husband, “I love squares so I want something that will be squared.” It was a magical moment!
What’s the inspiration behind your lacquer colors?
It’s usually random and I just follow my heart, but I have been inspired by movies, music, and what’s going on in my life at the time.
What is your best seller right now?
Purple Unicorns. »
What is your favorite polish you’ve ever created?
This is a difficult choice because I love them all but if I had to pick one it would be Holoberries. The blue/purple shimmer is gorgeous!

Black Cat Lacquer! It was my first indie purchase and started my indie addiction.
