These are just a few of the questions I get asked most. I will update them periodically, and if you have any other questions you'd like to know, feel free to contact me by email or in one of the comment sections! :)
Are your nails real?
Yes! My nails are 100% natural. You can check out my Current Nail Care Routine if you'd like to learn more about them.
What camera do you use?
My photos are taken with either a Canon EOS M, or a Canon SL1 (varies by post). A few of my earlier photos were taken with my iPhone.
Do you use a lightbox to take your photos?
No, I have never used a lightbox before. I like to use natural lighting, so I will setup near a window. If I don't have the option of natural lighting, then the majority of the time I will use a basic desk lamp with a white, daylight bulb. They are great for color accurate photos.
What program(s) do you use to edit your photos?
I edit, crop, and watermark all of my photos using Photoshop CC. Photos posted on Instagram or other social media sites are usually also edited or cropped using various apps (PicFrame, Line Camera, to name a few).
What is your favorite nail polish brand?
I have quite a few, but my all time favorite is Chanel. I've never tried a Chanel with a formula I didn't like, and I have quite a large collection now. The colors and finishes are always beautiful, and the bottle is gorgeous to look at, of course. Honorable mentions would have to go to Enchanted Polish, JINsoon, Essie, and CND.
Do you use acrylic paints or other mediums in your nail art?
All of the nail art you see on Lacquerstyle.com thus far, is created with nail polish only. I also have never tried stamping, which I get asked a lot; all of my art is hand painted.
