Leah Ann LaRowe
►Brand Name *
►How did you choose your brand name? *
Actually my customers did. I was originally Colors by Llarowe and customers kept referring to CbL and I used it instead.
►What's your all time favorite polish/collection that you created? Non polish makers: your favorite product? *
Barney Sucks. It’s the perfect cream base for any topper. I have gone thru bottles of it as undies for toppers and it’s my go to pedi color.
►What was the very first polish you made and sold?
In the Navy
►Is your business full time? If not, what’s your other job? *
Yes but I’m also a full time mom and domestic engineer.
►Besides nail polish/handmade, what are your others interests? *
Refinishing furniture and antiques, snowboarding, wakeboarding, gardening, running. Not necessarily in that order.
►Do you have a dedicated space for creating?
Yes. No picture included as I use special mixing tools I don’t want to reveal.
►Do you feel like you have to strike a balance between what you personally like and what you think will sell? How do you walk that balance? *
Not really other than I don’t like yellow or orange. I wear each polish I create if it is chosen for sale and if it passes my “love it” test it is sold. I am super picky about polish.
►If you could design a polish for any celebrity, who would it be and why? What color/type of polish? Non polish makers: what kind of product? *
Julia Roberts. Love her to death and think she would be a blast to hang out with. It would be a red of course!!
►What theme would you like to see in The Pickup? *
Textiles. The possibilities are endless.
►What is your favorite item to shop for from the pickups? *
Polish. Always polish.
