Growing up in London, Tina was inspired by her vibrant and creative neighbourhood. With an eye for colour, her modern approach to nails has led the studios to be buzzing with London locals.
With a degree in Fashion Journalism from UCA, Tina had a desire to start her own business. She dreamed of creating nail studios, an academy and nail polish range that had a modern approach to beauty.
Where are your products made?
Our polish is made in GB.
We have studios in Dalston and Shoreditch which is where our office is also based.
Where did you get your inspiration behind naming the colours?
Well, it's a super fun task. I came up with the idea when I was walking through Victoria Park one day and thought it would be fun to name a forest green nail polish, The Victoria Park. It just escalated from there! Sometimes the connection is a little ambiguous but we make up fun personalities to bring the polish to life.
What is your top selling nail polish colour?
The Victoria Park was the top seller for months but more recently The London Fields has taken over since we launched it in April.
Which is your favourite nail polish colour?
The Hackney Marshes is my fave at the moment!
What is your biggest achievement so far?
It is so hard to say as we have achieved so much since we launched in 207. We have a big online retail launch this month which is probably my biggest achievement so far! Also renovating the Dalston studio, it was a shell when we got it so we literally had to do everything including installing water.
Do you have anything planned for this year that you can share with us?
We are planning on expanding our polish range, with some new shades launching in September.
