Today I have new installment of Inside Indy Polish. I told you a little about Animeniac last week, but here is a refresher:
The story behind Amimeniac is so awesome, a mother helping her daughter to pursue a dream of creating her own polish and helping her to sell it to us die hard lacquer heads. What a great mom, right? Animeniac polishes are inspired by anime, manga, sci-fi, comics and gaming which is sure to produce some fun and interesting polishes for sure, plus they are big three free!
Below is an interview I had with Aneissa, creater of the polishes for Animeniac, I had the theme song of Animaniacs stuck in my head the whole time composing this post by the way ;)
Favourite polish finish:
I love both glitter and cream finishes.
Favourite polish colour:
I love Super Heroine and Geek Chic.
Favourite polish trend:
The Glitter polish trend, because it gives a variety of options. The possibilities are endless…
Favourite top coat:
Our New Mezz Top Coat.
What was the first polish you ever mixed/created?
Geek Chic. I love the variety of glitter colors and sizes.
Why did you decide to start mixing/creating polish?
As a creative mind, a lover of nail polish and a lover of Anime, Manga etc. I felt the need to combine the three.
What made you finally start to mass-produce and sell your polish?
Everyone would comment on how much they loved my nails whenever I did my nails and they would ask where did I “get” my polish. I realized that there was a real interest especially here in Canada, as well as in the US. Many people have found it hard to get the types of polishes they like in Canada.
How long does it take you to make a batch/bottle of polish?
It depends. We test and retest each formulation to make sure that they are of the highest quality.
What is your favourite hand-crafted polish? Super Heroine and Geek Chic.
Where do you get inspiration for your collections?
My polishes are all inspired by Anime, Manga, Comics, Gaming, and Sci-Fi. The colors range from vivid to neutral, and give me a lot of inspiration. The color combinations are endless.
