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 Laqueredup.com!

 

       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.
