Swatcher Spotlight: Vee / Your.Girl.Vee
What's the most exciting thing about swatching for you? (i.e. why do you do it?)
I gotta keep it real and admit that getting the polish in the mail is still one of the best parts! But beyond that, I love being able to help people shop for polishes that they will truly enjoy.
If you could give advice to newbies it would be ___?
Stop doubting yourself. It's normal to want to improve but remember that these makers approached you for a reason, so just do your thing!
What was the first brand that you worked with?
Cirque Colors was the first brand to give me a swatching gig. I was so hyped!
Favorite collection you've swatched? Or favorite PPU polish you've swatched?
This is so hard to answer! I'd have to say Cirque's Terra Cotta collection. A close second would have been Polished for Days' Woodland Holiday Collection.
Favorite finish to photograph? Least favorite finish?
Cremes and shimmers are my favorite finishes to capture. Foily finishes would be my least favorite. Oh and neons because it's so hard to capture them accurately.
If you could only wear one polish finish what would it be?
Call me boring but it would be creme!
How many bottles of nail polish do you own? How many do you actually use?
I'm not sure anymore but the last time I counted (a few months ago) I had a bit more than 1200 bottles. I've swatched and purchased a lot more polish since then so I would estimate that I have somewhere around 1500.
