  • Holo everyone glad you enjoyed the video! I just want to add that this video is my own work process from my perspective, and includes just my personal contribution to gearing up for a Holo Taco launch. There is so much work beyond what I do in my basement that involves many other people! Website coding, social media, customer service, emails and marketing, supplementary photography & video, project management/scheduling, quality control and of course can’t forget the actual making and mixing of the polish, and packing and shipping your orders🙌💅 It is truly a team effort to launch a collection, in no way do I do it all alone! I am proud to work with other hardworking individuals as passionate about Holo Taco as me😎

  • This is exactly what I expected actually. I’ve been to graphic design / art school. So yes... I fully understand the behind-the-scenes of photo shoots, etc, are very “unprofessional” to what people expect. 😆 But hey; that’s how it’s done! 👍🏻🤷🏼‍♀️😆

  • Do defusers work for creme polishes? Since they have no holo? I don’t know anything about holo photography or just nail photography/ hand modelling in general I do my own type of photography that is nothing like this!

  • I recently started my own business making and selling soap. At this time I take and edit all my own product photos, so watching your behind the scenes footage was fun because I ended up just saying "omg same" a hundred times XD it is interesting to see a more well known creator going through the same process I do (although with my products I don't have to worry about catching a perfect holo, or wiggle my fingers!)

I just have a question, when you do trim your nails do you find the new nails grow back already stained or they become stained over time?

  • I think it’s super cool that the first thing you did was write the product description! And even cooler that you say you wish you’d taken an creative writing class, cause I know a lot of people who think it’s a worthless class, but it’s not. I’ve always thought that writing product descriptions would be an interesting job, considering that it has to be both accurately descriptive and also geared towards selling the product. And it’s also interesting to see how you do the same sort of thing for photos and videos, making them the most aesthetically pleasing to attract customers. Basically, I just find analysis and meta-information stuff super interesting, which is why I just started grad school for Library and Information Science!

  • Loved this, I kinda liked that it was a longer vid. What do you think about doing a vid of different ways to do raindrop nails? It only occurred to me today that I could do it with my Scattered Holo Taco (tm) instead of regular clear polish, and I'd love to see you try a bunch of different combos.

  • Considering you apparently spend so much time almost eating that remote xD... Have you ever considered this to be the reason for your skin problems? I dont know anything about skin health and I dont mean this in a mean way. I just know you guys are still searching for the reason and maybe noone ever thought about this. I really enjoyed the behind the scenes. Thank you!

  • I was thinking maybe instead of using led bulbs, maybe try using a band light? This way the light would be better? Idk, not a professional, I just generally think band lights offer a "smoother" light, making it feel more like natural light, cz it's not coming from one spot only, it feels more "dynamic" (idk how to explain better). Also band lights you can adjust to be a bit yellow-ish which can be really close to natural sunlight imo. Love ur videos, keep up the amazing work!

  • Not polish related, but you should consider remove the rattle from the cats collar, it's really bad for their ears, ther have really sensitive ears and that can hurt even damage their hearing no one tells that cause pet shops wants profit, but it's bad, even disturb their behavior, cats are very quiet animals, and having that thing make sound whenever they move it really gets in the way, that's why they get attracted and pissed with toys with rattle, they bite and kick because the sound bothers them (and also catnip), but you totally should remove, I have indoor cats and they don't even wear collars, cause I wouldn't want that thing on my neck, so probably they wouldn't want to anyway, just the rattle, it's sold everywhere, but it's bad for them, the pet shop won't tell you that, but you can totally find it online, on many resources, and btw, waiting for the day that holo taco will be available in Brazil 🥰🥰
