Swatcher Spotlight: Natalia / naillution
What's the most exciting thing about swatching for you? (i.e. why do you do it?)
I love the process of getting my nails ready for nail polish. For me, applying nail polish itself is like meditation, it soothes.
If you could give advice to newbies it would be _______________?
All comes with experience. Everyone started somewhere. At first, everyone did not do well. The main thing is not to give up and everything will work out
What was the first brand that you worked with?
First was Masura, then my big love Cadillacquer

For shooting i use 2 softboxes, 1 lamp, tripod and my old camera nikon d5000. Ah yeah, my Sleeve from a white sweater
