Hey guys! Today I will be interviewing Charlene (Charlie) from Charlie's Rad Lacquer !
Please tell me a bit yourself (not your polish brand just you)
My name is Charlene Lucero. I was born and raised in Colorado Springs, CO and still currently reside there. I'm also a student at the University of Colorado Colorado Springs studying Biology and I hope to become a Dental Hygienist. Some of my other hobbies besides studying and nail polish are my aquarium, drawing, tie dying, making jewelry and gardening.
What is your nail polish brand name?
IntensePolishTherapy Indie Interview (I.I.I)
What inspired you to name your brand that?
The use of the name Charlie in my brand name is actually a bit of a joke with my family. To make a long story short my mom wanted my nickname to be Charlie when she named me Charlene but when I turned four I told her not call me that. I said Charlie was a boy's name. The abbreviation of my brand name (CRL) is also my initials.
What year did you start your brand?
November 2013, Launched January 2014
Do you remember the name of the first polish you made &/or sold?
Nelly's Belly, a soft metallic pink holo
Out of all the the polishes you've made, can you tell me your favourite 3?
Luckiest Shamrock, Still Waters Run Deep, and Dreamy Lilac
What are your 3 top sellers of all times?
Nelly's Belly, Heart of Gold, and Hi, I'm New
When making a polish, do you create with inspirations or just start adding by random.
I take either approach when it comes to making polishes. Most times I know exactly what I want something to look like but other times I like to experiment and just mix different pigments to see what kind of color I can create.
Do you ship internationally?
Not at this time but I am looking into getting it set up again.
Is there anything else you'd like my readers to know?
All of my polishes are 5-free and I have some pretty amazing collections planned for the rest of the year!
Also could you please link me your website as well as all of the social media sites you use.
