  • 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😎

    • Everybody at the holo taco family is awesome you guys do a great job!!!🤩🤩🤩 Cristine I thought of something instead of you having to put a scarf on your fingers why don’t you get black gloves so your nails don’t affect your shot but you can still use your hands

  • Thanks for taking the time to show us this! I found it fascinating. I never considered all the work it takes to get the perfect shot and can't help but admire your dedication. Love the draw mask feature! Also never thought your existing nail colour would have such an effect on the photos, that holo is a sensitive b%*#h! 🤣

  • I just discovered your channel like a week ago and I binged a bunch of videos already. I simply 😉 love you Cristine! I want to be your friend so bad haha! But seriously, you're amazing and still so humble. I do have a suggestion for names of nail polish if you do make another line. You could name them all kinds of tea or something related to tea. Seems like it would be perfect!

  • funny enough, I actually painted a rainbow nail polish spilling scene in my high school art class, cause I was trying to think of something to paint that met a bunch of the qualifications to get a good grade on the final, and I ended up doing the prime colors in nail polish bottles, spilling out to make a lake of rainbow, cause it was made with paint, and nail polish tooootally mixes into perfect colors right? RIGHT?? anyways, I ended up doing like 6 of the things I needed to have in the paining with just spilled nail polish bottles XD and yes, it got be an A :p

  • 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!
