While growing up, did you always know you wanted to work together?
Vernice: “It wasn’t planned, it just happened, but we work well together. It’s also really great that we’ve been able to share the whole experience.”
Ange: “We both have creative backgrounds, so it’s great when someone understands your vision and is as excited as you are! The two of us complement each other. Although we are very different, we still respect each other’s views.”
What prompted you to develop your own polish line? Did you feel something was missing in the nail-polish industry?
A: “Nail color is like a fashion accessory, you could wear nail color as if it were a great piece of jewelry, or to compliment your look, update, or even stamp out your style. There were not many nail-color brands you could go to for the next, hot, must-have shades. A brand whereby, if you if you purchased that shade, you would love and cherish it until it was completely finished.”
What are your go-to beauty products? Have they evolved since getting more involved in the beauty industry?
V: “By Terry Touché Éclat! I love that they have the new shades, NARS Multiple in Orgasm.”
A: “I have always been heavily into amazing, flawless-looking and natural skin, but I really love beautiful fragrance… We truly underestimate its power, and I have studied how fragrance can influence your feelings or touch your mind and your soul. Tom Ford’s fragrances are currently my favorite; The Vanilla Tobacco is lust-worthy, and my taste has always been quite sensual and feminine. Since working in this industry, I have been introduced to some wonderful new discoveries including Kilians’ range of fragrances, which I admire and adore.”
