Meet Carolina Garcia, the creator of successful indie brand Colores de Carol! We talked to her one-on-one to get the story behind the lacquer.
Nail It!: How long have you been making your own polish?
Carolina: I’ve been making Colores de Carol nail polishes since January 2013.
What’s your “day job”?
I have a bachelors degree in education but at this time I’m dedicated full time to Colores de Carol and being a stay at home mom.
How did you begin creating your own polishes?
I always loved nail polishes and nail art. When I started blogging in 2010, I finally found a place for my passion!
What makes your line of lacquers unique?
I put all my love and passion into every single polish I create. They are unique because they are made in small batches and they are mostly limited edition.
Do any of your polishes have a totally different look layered over a colored base?
Yes, I have a complete collection called When The Planets Align. These are multi-chrome holographic top coats; they shift from one color to another depending on the base.
What is your best seller right now?
My best seller right now is 50K, a nail polish I created to celebrate reaching 50,000 followers on Instagram. Another best seller is Bling!, a silver holographic micro glitter.Any spoilers you’d like to share about your future collection?
Metallic holographic and soft neons is all I can say!
