My name is Jessica and I'm the owner of LaqueredUp nail polish.  I have always been a creative person and having my own business has allowed me to find happiness in creating something that I love. 


   Art has always been a passion of mine and I majored in art history and fine arts in college. I love the creative process and polishes begin with journaling ideas, colors and names. My inspiration comes from nature, trends, fashion and things I personally love or find beautiful. I test colors, glitters and combinations over months before final products are ready. Polishes are always evolving and are revised until they come together for collections or a finished product. Sometimes the hardest part is naming a polish. I try to evoke a color, thought or a fun idea. It's always exciting when a collection comes together in the end because it is the finale of all the hard work and thinking. Then the promoting and selling begins in my Etsy shop and!


       Having a background in art, I am always thinking about color and the visual appeal of products.  Everything from photograph arrangement, website layout and packaging are all things I continuously change to keep polishes exciting and attractive. There is always something new to learn and I think that's what keeps it fun.
