I love seeing all of the different color combinations and components that indie makers use! Plus swatching really gets me out of my comfort zone by talking with everyone
Support brands, even when you can't afford to purchase items. You don't need a fancy camera or complex lighting to get nice photos!
Heather's Hues! Heather reached out to me when I first started my blog and that's what kickstarted everything for me!
I use a Lumix FZ80 for all of my photos. I have a total of 7 lights that I use for photos that I switch around depending on the type of polish. I like daylight bulbs. I also have a Lightbox that I take out for flakies and some shimmers.
You can never have too many lights but not all polishes do well under a ton of lighting. I literally turn on and off lights depending on the polish. Oh and holo does not like lightboxes.
Yes! I have noticed that since I started swatching polishes for brands (June 2020), that I have less time to wear anything. If I get to wear a polish for more than 24 hours, that's rare. I have also found that I don't do nail art nearly as often now.
This one is hard! My favorite PPU polish that I have swatched would have to be Scorpius by Heather's Hues. I have a backup of that one! Out of all of the collections that I've swatched the KB Shimmer Love At Frost Sight (both parts) stand out the most to me.
I LOVE photographing shifty shimmers and multichromes! Things like glitters are fun because I really like seeing each separate component in photos. Neons are the biggest headache to photograph but I love them anyway.
Like 5-8 hours daily during the week? I try to limit time spent on weekends.
Ashley from Southern Swatches has been a HUGE influence on me! QueenOfNails83 was a big influence as well!
A little over 1200 bottles. Not including backups haha
