Press Samples

Hey loves, sadly I haven't been feeling very well the past few days. However I have some last minute Indie Expo Canada posts to share with you. So let's jump right into it!
Rogue Lacquer | Indie Expo Canada Swatches & Interview
Rogue Lacquer | Indie Expo Canada Swatches & Interview

 -What's your name, brand name & what sort of products will you be bringing to Indie Expo Canada?
Hi! Rachel, my brand is Rogue Lacquer and I will have nail polish and a handful of my nail care and scented wax! 

-Is this your first time participating in Indie Expo Canada?
This is my second year participating as Rogue! I did the start up table last year. 

-Will you be attending in person?
Sadly I will not be able to make it in person. Too many people off work so I will be sharing a space with the amazing Mariah from Great Lakes Lacquer. 

-Why'd you pick the name you did for your brand?
It seemed appropriate and I also am a big comic/Star Wars fan so the name kept coming up.

-What other names did you have in mind?
I don’t even remember now, it’s been so long and Rogue just stuck. One of the initial names I had came up with circa 2014 was whimsy polish but it just never came to pass.

-What's your favourite discontinued product as well as your favourite available product from your brand?
Favorite discontinued product... I would have to say my sirens of summer, they were so bright and sparkly. Favorite available product would be any of the Arizona’s, the flakes they speak to me. 

-What led you to creating your own products? Was it to have your own brand or to just create things for yourself?
I was a long time nail biter, polish helped me to quit the habit. My family has always been very creative and artistic so I thought it would be a fun creative outlet for me, especially having been a painter in the past.

-How long have you been in this business? Is it a side hustle or full time job for you?
I’ve been making polish since 2014 but Rogue is a little over a year old. This is my side hustle, I work in healthcare by day. 

-What other interests/hobbies do you enjoy?
I really enjoy hiking and exploring. My family loves to travel. Also love reading and will be taking up biking soon. 

-What's one product that'll be at the show that you would recommend to anyone/everyone? & Why did you chose that product?
I would definitely check out our Arizona’s. The creativity behind them was entirely inspired by where I live and places and things I’ve experienced. I would also check out our cuticle oil and the sneak preview of some of our new nail care products. 

-Being in this sort of business must be extremely competitive, what are some dilemmas you've faced?
Most of my dilemmas are usually internal struggles that I think a lot of people face. Second guessing colors, wondering if people will like what you are making. Since I’ve opened Rogue I have tried to make colors that make me happy. It can be hard when you feel like you have to do what everyone else is doing. Trying to be true to me 🙂 

-What keeps you doing what you do everyday?
I love the reactions, and knowing that the colors I make are bringing happiness to others. 

-What's your favourite part about attending events, compared to online sales?
I’m so sad I can’t be there, I love interacting with customers and putting faces to the names I see all the time! It’s a great way to connect with people and other makers that I have come to call my friends.

-Do you have any advice you'd like to give others in your line of business?
Stay true to yourself and what makes you happy 

-Where do you want your business to be in two years?
My second and third loves are nail and skin care. I’ve been doing tons of research and testing on myself 😂 also looking into expanding with my other half into some fur baby and men’s products! 

-Lastly, please tell me one thing you'd like fans of Indie Expo Canada to know?
That I’m super bummed I can’t make it in person but hope that next year I can knock on Canada’s door!
