We have a rather exciting interview today here on Nailpolis, we’re interviewing Janelle from the immensely popular YoutTube channel, ellandish! Janelle creates a new nail art tutorial every week, and if you want to see the tutorial for any of the nail art looks in this interview, look through her channel here!

1. Help us get to know you a bit!

My name is Janelle, I live in northern California and I work full time as a semiconductor engineer! I first started painting my nails in middle school but I started getting into nail art after college.

2. Have you made any friends through nail art?

Yes!  In the short time that I’ve started doing nail art on YouTube I’ve made nail art friends, fashion blogger friends and even gotten to know YouTubers that I’ve watched for years… It’s still mind boggling to me that I’ve interacted with them or met them in real life.

3. Any places you want to travel to?

I just went to Hawaii last month but I already want to go back!  I’d love to visit Japan and the Philippines next!

 

4. Are there any brands you’d love to try but can’t because of them being foreign or their price?

Barry M., Model’s Own (even though it’s now in the US I still need to try it), and Christian Louboutin nail polish!

5. Do you like long or short nails when creating your nail art?

I think having longer nails is much easier for me… longer nails means a larger canvas!

6. What prompted you to start your nail channel?

A new computer!  My old desktop died, and my new one had editing software on it. I loved painting my nails and I had just started to get into nail stamping, so I decided to just try it out and learn how to edit videos.

7. What are some of your favorite polishes to work with?

OPI Alpine Snow and OPI Black Onyx!  White and black are essential for me.

 

8. What do you think of some of the new special effect polishes, like crackles or magnetics?

I don’t use them that often, usually only for accent nails.  I do however like textured glitter and matte polishes!  Those are my favorite special effects types.

9. Do people ever notice your nail art when you’re out and about?

Very rarely, actually!

 

10. If you could only wear one color of polish for the rest of your life, what would it be?

White; it’s clean and it goes with everything.
