Swatcher Spotlight: Nadia / Mama Hearts Polish
What's the most exciting thing about swatching for you? (i.e. why do you do it?)
I love getting to try different brands. I find the process of applying polish and photographing to be very relaxing and I enjoy talking about it. It's my favorite hobby.
How do you keep your shots so uniformed? (Same hand positions, bottle shots, etc.)
Years of practice! I also label everything. I have marks on my camera tripod for the angles, marks on my desk for where to place the tripod and my hand and marks for where to place which light. After that it's just muscle memory. Always pick a pose that's natural to you and eventually your hand will know exactly what to do.
What do you use to take your photos with?
I use a Nikon D3500 DSLR and my Samsung Galaxy S10+ for outdoor shots.
What is your favorite brand to work with and why?
I love working with Mariah of Great Lakes. She sends stuff on time with all the info I need, makes great polishes, and is super nice and easy going.
How much time do you spend each week swatching, taking photos, etc?
About 20 hours a week between swatching, recording, editing photos and videos and then posting to social media.
