It took me FOREVER to get into NVR Enuff Polish, and my goodness do I feel late. This brand brings unicorn magic to their nail polishes and makes any holo hater, and fan. I first made a purchase when their second Gilmore Girls collection came out, and I'm so glad. My collection has only grown from here. The photo above was taken in the summer, and my collection has doubled since then.
The brand has been featured in my 2016 favorites, and I don't doubt they'll be making an appearance on next years post. I especially love that it's not just 2 women creating polish, but Mary, Lynnae's 5 year old daughter, is heavily involved in the making.
So let's get to meeting Lynnae, Mary, and Alix of Nvr Enuff Polish.
Let's just start by having you explain the obsession you, and everyone else has, with unicorns?
Unicorns are magical!!!!
We actually adopted the theme from our fans and we are very honored they gave us that title! A duo called 'Duo-Corn' was launched, we have purple and blue hair, thus we started being called the unicorns and ran with it!
There is something to be said in feeling like you own something very special that was made from the heart and hands of people who love what they do, unicorns are a wonderful representation of this feeling we get every time someone swoons over a new color or theme. We now identify wholeheartedly with the unicorn and are crazy about our NEP Uni-family!
With that said, what is your best selling polish and how did you come up with the color?
To-Date our best selling color was Unicorn Castle. She is such a stunner so it's no surprise, but we do have a LOT of close contenders including all of the Mystery Unicorns and Mary Monthlies! Our girls love a theme and Mary knows how to knock colors out of the park!
As someone who creates polish, have you ever thought about creating other things?
We have!!! We are actually (and have been for a couple years now) creating a side brand with NVR Enuff!!! Someday you'll be able to buy shirts, bags, hats, stickers etc!!! Someday...
What inspires you to create these polishes and how do you come up with the names?
We work really well with nostalgia/cult classic themes. We vary outward at times being inspired daily from space to Unicorns and everything in between! Names are the hardest part, sometimes it takes days before we nail the perfect ones, but in the end, we love what we come up with and think we can be pretty punny at times (OH DEER! Duo!)!!
Have you ever loved a polish you made so much, you made an extra one for yourself?
Of course!!!! We own all of our colors in original bottles and pride them!!
What are some of your favorite brands, commercial and indie?
Oh this list could be so long!!!! Pretty much every single indie company inspires us in one way or another, there are the brands that we still own that inspired us to become what we even are today, and are discovering new amazing ones everyday! Commercial we don't actually purchase much anymore, to be quite honest, but you can never go wrong with an Essie!
If a scent was created to go against your personality, what would it consist of?
Alix and I both love Victoria Secrets last holiday scent Paris.!!!! Holy moly, get yourself some!
If we had to go opposite from our personality or taste, we would have to say anything too strong. Maybe sandlewood, eucalyptus, or peppermint scents.
When you were younger, what was something you ate so much of, you got sick of it?
Bagels and cream cheese for me, soufflé for Alix
What are your favorite 5 films of all time?
In no particular order Harry Potter(s), Forrest Gump, Tank Girl, Too Wong Foo, and Nightmare Before Christmas.
On your spare time, you......?
Alix is a huge crafter, anything you want she can make! We both love to shop, I play with my kids and have a huge lipstick addiction!
What has creating polishes taught you?
As our company grew, so did we. Overtime, we have become very well versed in the ways of customer service and satisfaction. It's our biggest pride and joy in Nvr Enuff, as a whole, we are always here for the customers as we were (and still are) them!
If you could be a TV character, cartoon or fiction, who would you be?
Lydia from Beetlejuice for me (or Lorelei Gilmore minus her relationship issues lol), and Tank Girl for Alix.
Have Mary (daughter) answer one of these questions.
How did Mary's polishes come about?
"I love mommy's nail polish, they're so beautiful!" This doesn't reeeeally answer the question, but was cute lol.
Lastly, if you could go into the future and tell yourself 1 thing, what would you say?
She just stared blankly at me. (Sometimes silence says a lot. Haha.)
So there you have it, the 3 lovely ladies behind the magical brand.
I have had the honor of owning 2 of Mary's creations and it really is amazing how she comes up with these colors and finishes.
If you haven't already tried the polish, absolutely do.
And if you were to have them create a collection or polish, what would your request be?
