"nails inc" Discussed on The Book Review

"This is john williams and i'm joined by the time steph book critics to garner jennifer sly and parl al-sagha to talk about what they've reviewed recently hateem hello tomorrow. Let's start with you just for sheer tonnage cheer masochist carry this message. All all around will rome. I finished it in rome. The i reviewed the catholic school by twelve ninety which won the strega prize at least top honor and it's about twelve twelve hundred pages. I don't know you kind of lose count. After the nine hundred mark it is immense and it is a mix of fact and fiction and other ninety what he's trying trying to do is explain murder in the seventy s right so these three men could not to women and killing one torturing both of them and they were schoolmates while the ninety s he wants to do is understand this crime and to frame this crime is not an aberration but as a logical fulfillment of masculinity is created in italy he by the school that he went to buy religion by the cult of the family and i mean the weights written is there are moments of what we understand is true crime but most of it is just it's it's just rants and arias tirades and he just sort of in this froth trying to see like who made me who made them who made us and say it's not like portrait of the classmates narrative about what they're sorta raunchy on-time if only if only there was very little of that it's much more him sitting psychologically with what happened and and also his own life. He spent most of his life in male only spaces in he did a stint in the army. He went to the boys school the catholic school that he writes about and for twenty eighty five years. He's been teaching in prison so he knows a lot about the world of men together and gives a lot about masculinity. Here's a lot to say about everything and there are some original insights that he has to make based on his own life and observations but much of it. Is you know philosophy and you know there's some stuff about child development. There's some fraud. There's lucon marty lang and you know as i was reading it. I i felt like and i think about this. My review that what ends up happening is instead of there being some sort of critical distance about what he's writing about. He really tries to channel how these killers felt and how misogynists feel about women and women's bodies and about violence in about their bonds as other men review that he does it in a way that seems very fatalistic fatalists can't chain cannot. I'm not changing more than that. He really merges with it. He doesn't really criticize it. He wants to sort of describe it and all that sort of gaudy horror but for the reader you end up reading this thing like i know this so i know like we all know this. It's his book is identical in certain ways to statements by in cells. It's identical so many statements that you've ever read by any mass killer and they all leave long statements that they say the exact exact same thing so to read. This is like yes. I understand this but we're is the critique whereas the sort of leading in some air and reason season. You know where's some sort of because these arguments that are easy to perforate. You know easy to sort of dislodge but he's not interested in that. I have a couple of other thick books coming up this fall. I remember johnson book anniversary. I liked that experience longer than this. Oh yeah yeah that was that was really truly punishing thing. I'm gonna jen now because we're going to move. I think an order toward ravenous dwight had the the most positive review this week jen you wrote recently about a book called coke land. Yes so it's by a journalist named christopher learned and as the title suggests it's about coke industries which has has been written about a lot especially the last probably six or seven years i mean probably most famously jane mayer and dark money and in the new yorker as well as my daniel shulman whose book sons of wichitas really about the family story of the cokes and so this book is more focused on the business itself. What is the business so the business is at this point. It actually encompasses a lot more than it used to but originally you know is really an oil company and a fossil fossil fuel company and it still does that. It's branched into other related industry. So paper is another big thing. Agriculture is another big thing thing and it is one of the biggest privately owned companies in the world so in terms of transparency. There's actually not a lot of information information. That's readily available in regard to actually profits revenues. You know what exactly it does with its money and so- leonard talks to a lot of people gets documents searches the records and he shows how a company that you know in the late sixties when charles coke who is currently still the chief executive when he took over when his father died. How a company that was sort of a you. No profitable mid level company became what it is today which is essentially like an energy behemoth and it's made politics it's business and it's made politics is business although very secretively and i think that that was something that jane mayer really exposed and and part in her book dark money but for the most apart charles coke and his brother david coke and there are two other brothers and that's that's a whole story that you know take another book but what charles coke doc has has really done as he sort of realized that being secretive not just in terms of the business but in terms of their political activities could be very useful to to his agenda you call this book a corporate history lucidly told and he focused less on the politics find out less about the politics he he has some stuff on the politics. I mean he does want to show how you know. The thread that he really is interested in is how the political agenda agenda that charles coke wanted to promote really dovetailed very nicely with the corporate agenda of the company and so he looks at the ways in which what the cokes funded how that helped the business or how that helped create a climate of opinion among conservatives at least that would be very open and receptive to what the business was doing and the biggest one. I guess is climate change and the issue of climate change denial because this company this a company as an energy company that has not really invested in renewable sits. It's really focused on fossil fuels so the made a point of saying that <hes> trump i think was the one candidate doors yeah. I think danny sixteen. I think that charles coke's formulation was he compared the choice between in a trump presidency and a hillary clinton presidency is a choice between cancer and a heart attack so for him i mean trump was not somebody that he wanted to see elected elected. I think primarily because the platform that trump was running on which was protectionist tariffs healthcare. That kind of thing was something that was anathema to to what coke wanted but what he found i think when trump became president was that trump was a president that was willing to quote unquote work with republicans lukens in the sense that trump was totally unprepared and so that was sort of a big hole that coke and you know the organizations that he funded could could really step into and they had a list of judicial appointments that were very useful for trump which we're seeing right now and so what leonard argues is that coke has figured out a way to treat trump as a natural disaster so you know something that he could prepare for and then find a way to profit profit from do i use this week reviewed <hes> a very different kind of boca novel out of the year i said in terms of its ability to throw dart after dark after after dark. I'm quoting myself into your media weary soul and heart level of the nails inc. This is our fourth or fifth novel. She's been around a known quantity. She's always been smart clever very very witty. She's really upped her game in her new novel which is called. It's a more conventional novel in some ways. It follows two generations of one family. The first generation or are two you know you could put a label on the call them eight hipsters. I think they're young people are moved to new york city in the late eighties and there in the early nineties trying to make lives for themselves and they've play in bands nelson kaz very smart on the music. She clearly knows a lot about music and then the story slowly becomes about their daughter flora who ends up growing up with her grandparents for complicated reasons in washington d._c. You see after nine eleven. It becomes flora's novel in flora. Among other things goes to work for the jill stein campaign during the last elections you imagine the the possibilities for commentary about the trump in the world and nelson experts. Those was a great quote from i think his name is jill berto gilbert the the novel. He says his favourite ethnic group is smart and nelson is just so so goddamn smart in this novel that is crazy everything she brings up to talk about she says one of the best things you've ever read about whatever that thing is and i was just lineup till after line just knock me out and the people who know what i like no that that's part of what i come to fiction for. I mean they're all kinds of novels out there. I like stories to that are slow unfold in her narrative driven but nells zinc just has has the sharpest knife in town right now for me and i was just kind of blown away by the second half loses a bit of its momentum the floor stories don't quite have the same mm-hmm bite that the earlier half has but what i think has in this novel that are earlier novels lacked. Is this sort of silent assessment of life that goes on below the text. You feel a deeper sense here. She's she's not just rocking pinball machine. She's done in previous novels. There's some real emotional meet hear more about sort of the political moment in our country moment. She has a lot to say about all sorts of things about politics. I mean this novel takes you. Through the early days of the gulf war beautiful writing about nine eleven the family the two eight hipsters to go back to the slogan term for them live right right downtown and and and in the air is filled with bestest and fear when they let their daughter go live in d._c. Insurance beautifully about nine eleven and then you know just follows everything the two thousand election which before that obviously is i say my review the the politics in zinc stew novel ducks allergy the kind of liquor like flames in the background the way they do in john updike's rabbit novels and there's always this sense that somehow like the t._v. News is on and characters are bouncing. Their perceptions of their daily lives off of this stuff. That's happening coming to the media anyway. I i just philly really thought it was great. Reviews.

"Grew up and how they went through their life and in school and all their friendships and everything like that. And you see them for who they are. I think that is such a beautiful thing about friendship because you really like get. And yeah, for sure. I have a question for you. What how do you think we go to the friendship stage? We all now while I don't think it happened immediately. No, I think it took a couple years kind of by coincidence, and it was kind of by coincidence. I remember we always liked each other obviously, but we didn't always hang out and I still don't feel like we actually hang out that much. I r l, no, but we speak all the time, but we speak different when you're busy and traveling, and yeah, for sure. But I think eventually we just built this trust. Yeah, and trust is just like, so crucial for me. I'm like, I find it hard to trust anybody to. I remember even sometimes telling you things like a deep dark secret in my life and being like, oh, I shouldn't have said that because she's gonna go, blah that to everybody, but you didn't. I think something else that happened with us was when we shed something negative and we started this rule kind of from the beginning, we wouldn't bring it up to the pass, and unless they brought it up to us, this is so true. I remember you saying I'm gonna tell you where we know we've been standing outside some pob club thing. Oh, was that after that nails Inc event? No, it was regrettable. Oh my God. He's been so many time. Yeah, I feel like what? What did you tell me something? No, you told me something and you were crying standard and I was like, I don't want you to miss shit friend. I remember. Come on this podcast all, but I was like, I'm not going to bring this up again until you bring it up, but it's not because I'm not thinking about it will. I don't wanna know it's, I'm not going to bug every five minutes and be like, how's this negative thing in your life? That is a really good point because sometimes I feel like you just need to get something off your chest with somebody, and it doesn't mean that you need to talk about it all the time. It's just like I need to release this. I need to vent about this and on and move on and just kind of move on. And that was really amazing. And then a similar thing happened with you or usual me something, and I was like, okay, same deal. Like I'm not going to bring this up until you bring the good rule will actually, they just think when you hold something over somebody. Yeah, I don't like that power. Like, you know, I don't think that that's the right way to go about a friendship at all. No. But sometimes we do kind of like, say, girl, get your shit. Like come on now. Oh, yeah. Pull your socks up. So pretty much..

"But one day that was just an idea and they're probably people listening. You have an idea into thing. How can I ever make that into something. Yes, in my top tip would be to constantly change. So I think the death of all businesses is staying the same. You know, housing this last year has become Nells ING, incredible cosmetics, my mood, and it's all still nails Inc. In my mind, you know, our group is nails ING, but we've gone into Boston body and tech accessories because women's spend as much money on them offering case. Now as they do on that cosmetics am. I think dot constant change is a big old task, but I think it's way you win. And I think that's been not doing the same. You know? And just because last year, so easy just to say, are that Saudi? Let's just do it again. And I think we do that very, very occasionally announcing actually the second time we ever saw that never cells as well as it did the first time. So I think we created a buzz around things. And then I would say, go on a plane or a train with whoever you're employing to work out. If you like them enough that you could stick a three hour train ride. My thing. Here, like for someone who if anyone is completing people don't always take that advice. I've definitely messed it up over the years, but mainly when I'm not sure about someone I say to myself, even I might go if I was stuck on a plane with you, how would I be? And then I immediately go won't be on the plane. And then I know not them. Working with people is a lot of your life and you wouldn't go out for dinner all hang out in the pub with someone that you felt that way with, but you will work with them in an office. I try. I didn't get it right all the time. Jimmy was saying someone who's upset my office recently because someone team hasn't what I went on seven of tennis, good score on this stuff. You can't do better. You can do better than seven out of ten. You can't get it right, ten times ten just impossible long. You do it, but I think that train test. It's my father in law stipulates me years ago us like just go on a plane with them. And I was like, when you imploded, would you actually take a plane. Mishear business much more successful than mine. She just whip the wanna play. He was like, honestly do it in that probation period get yourself on the train or plane with them such a good test. And then I would say China as your business grows try and go back to doing all the stuff you love you guys were saying to before it's made into the student product. I love my product and I would much rather sit in a product meeting. Then I want to sit in a board meeting all day long. I want to in a product meeting so we're ever going on. I will say in product meetings and come to product meetings with my ideas of what I want. I want us to launch, not not just come in there for the sake of it really come in being gauged into it. So I think that's my three..

"Yeah, I think you're saying something interesting alley when we were talking in the break about youth or like you dig your best interior design work on your hyme off lived here for a couple of years. Yeah, I think I don't see space into. I've lived in it like some people mazing talented people can see space and go. I know exactly how I do that and what I do. And for me, I think because I like things to be put away and space and nice design, but also functionality. I think for me as a big thing, proper drills that fit stuff away because this so much your family of five, the so much stuff all the time that I like practical as much as I like creative it looking good. I probably like practical. I hate it when my drawers. Don't close because there's so much stuff in them. I find that all like super knowing. There's storage in here, just realized as as. I definitely did great work when we when we lived here for years and knew what you needed and also your needs changes you. We'd come from being a couple with a tiny, tiny baby. When we first moved in to suddenly three kids might hair all day. My kids friends are here all the time, sudden regularly ten and to help people in my house. When we went in there was like two and a tiny purse, it's different needs. So yeah, I think I can see it until I live in it. And then I feel like I can understand it. Do you have any favorite places to shop for interiors? You're saying this west green. So from this is my father in law owns Colfax and Fowler and Lassen and lots of interior brands. So I buy furniture in terms of sofas and Ottomans in chairs, armchairs and all that kind of stuff from him. I buy nice stuff when I'm on holiday, but I don't think necessarily tons of furniture, but like bits and pieces all the stuff on shelves and stuff I think is open, kind of it's often to holiday buys ads a personality. A nice little memory to. Yeah. And then in London, I love the, I still think the Conran shops. Amazing. I love the Conran shop. Make up our media want to decorate my whole house away from my kitchen doodle because just look so lovely new. Yeah. And then Chelsea harbour which is round the corner from here like amazing lightened shops and stuff. Yeah, just think picks up as we go along. Really. That's a good tip and throw stuff away. I think when we moved out here, the best thing that happened to us, we through bucket loads of stuff away the best. Then. Okay, right. Plus if everything, what she's still really good. What's your star sign? Aquaria. I thought maybe you could always just like I'm getting serious tidy fives for getting. It made me so happy. I think when you realize something that you've turned away that you kind of start, we still want. I did a bit too much closer to sing. I hate unpacking so I was packing on the dump it hung up. Mitch, this great gives away regret sometimes, but it just feels good. Yeah, I feel like this is what my family out because lifting personalities in it, but man is organized. I can tell you like organization. I just I think we're really busy. So I feel like when it's when my house is really messy, it makes me feel disorganized and I am disorganized because it's too much going on. I'm never of everything because you can't be. So then what it's tidy, it makes me feel a little bit calmer. Definitely. Amen. There. I feel like finish off, you have to spoke about kind of your vibe, things you don't like things being messy.

"And my kids loved it because the football would bounce off all the walls and say, let she thought it was the best place in the world, and it was so ugly. And also I think there was no prettiness in the house. I think to think clearly I need things to be tidy and I need a bit pretty aesthetic, and that makes me I can see that I liked Heidi and I like pretty. And that helps me think clearly. I don't think well in mess. I don't think well surrounded by ugly. And I guess even though you look for work, there's small pockets of time that you come home, you can instantly recharge and I just think sitting on your own sofa lying on your bed at an behind buddy thought yet because I'm never here. So it's a circle. I'm such a home body. I am a proper home body. Never here. I like being in my home, but yeah, I'm much more than I thought I was stage doing your hair in the UK. Do you work in the office? You went from Himeji housepainter from the office, and then I try and work from him on Friday, but it often means that I'll do one meeting maybe in town and then try and spend the rest of the time here. Recoup podcast or. When you first started the brain where you're working from home, though, when we first started the Brown, we work above a store and then actually for years we used to go to wherever the store had the most space back office or an upstairs. That's where we always were. We always heard a space in in a short perfect. The years then we moved into tiny, tiny office in mill street in the West End. So you've always very much split work from home life while having always in your home. I do. But then I would say to you, I'm always working and I'm always doing home life because that's my life. So I'm always organizing stuff for my kids. So dashing go and see my kids doing something, and then I'm always working as well. At the same time, it's being with my, I just feel like the two just completely combined because none of us were kind of nine to five, Monday to Friday and the same with my kids. They don't not need stuff because I'm at work. It's all. It will just merges into one really. How is it for you with interior design in terms of you have three kids, their ages, fourteen eleven and eight. I mean your places quite white. Yes. Tips for people wanna kind of white crane beige space, but also have children in the mix. They quite good and sensible about like not coming down with chocolate fingers, but when they do they do you let you just live in it. You know. When it happens, it happens. They just do what they do. Boys walk in here every single night with muddy shoes and football boots, and all of that stuff. They're just put their shoes away just covered mud, but it's just get nauseous tool precious about it because you just clean it again..

Let's launch one of those. They go okay for us, but are better products. When we say, we think this could be a product all wouldn't. You will use this. We do better on those.

If you're just going on what's trending every other. Companies looking at that too, and then it's just a race if you gets it out. I yes called this little little window. If you're only I think mainly we make decisions really quickly. And then when it's taking a long time to make a decision, I go, we shouldn't be doing it because we have to you think that so many times if we're still talking about it, it's clearly about idea. We had our five meetings about the same thing. Yeah, it's tough. We're not. We're not not doing that. She we do really well when we just go. Yeah, love it. Let's let's go. We can. Then we got quite quickly. So we downstairs in the basement. John says, when I was taking the dungeon so useful down head full of color, we originally decorated this room in like my normal kind of nude, white black, and it just looked dead. It just didn't ever have any life. And it's it's kind of fun family hang out room when we put the blue in it, it was the first the room sort of came to life and my mom being here, and I heard a swatch of this material. She was like, you're not gonna have the blue and the green safer. And I was like, yeah, because it needed a life in a bit fun l. L-shaped stripey green right comfortable. And then these built-in shelves and draws in like, how would you describe that blues. It's like a, it's like a seaside is to say it's like a Mediterranean proper bright blue and it's like, why would call this? I would call that Greek blue. Yeah. Yeah. About the boys that Greece would have a blue partly due and the walls are, why are love this will cause it will make a beach. It's a bit like like a paneling. It's absolutely gorgeous, and it's so bright Ren basement. What is this kind of sky, which is really, and these amazing big kind of copper ball lighting hanging down, which I would really love. Yeah. And this is the TV room. This is the TV room and general family hang out room is where we should come and sit and work, but we don't. We'll just do it in the kitchen. This is like, come for remain. We moved our house for ten months to do a basement, which was a fairly hideous experience. So I guess we love it because it was it was worth it though, but it's, I think, putting time we felt more each other. It's given everyone space because you've now got two living rooms. It's done amazing thing, family life. And why interesting what you said about that time period where you had to leave out the basement was that you didn't realize how much you love being at home until one because I'm at work all day all the time, and I'm out all the time even when I'm here. You know, we're always always busy doing stuff with, you know, we're not an in family. I didn't realize how important sitting on my sofa or lying in my bed at night was to me, I really didn't. I travel the time for work as well. And I really am not. I've never thought of myself as particularly high maintenance. You know when people are complaining about that hotel, if I'm away. I don't care. I'm here. I'm here twenty four hours. I'd like it to be nice at much of it was lovely at bar that was always great. But when it's not, it doesn't really phase me. I just get on with it because it's work out about doing whatever I'm doing. I was actually homesick for year and my kids and my husband would fine was we lived in this ugly flat and had this weird your thing at the back of it,.

It could be an thing, and I think people shop like that anymore where you go. These have one hundred lip and then one hundred things. I think you can just launch cool product in the world of social media. Say you just if we find a great I product, we only got four of them and then we find an amazing body cream doesn't matter anymore because it's not about having that wall bay in a department store anymore where you say, well, I've gotta have two inch fifty skews. Otherwise I'm not cosmetics brand. We'll quickly get one hundred skis, I think we're about sixty at the moment, but we'll be one hundred quite quickly. Another brand which has just launched two weeks ago, and it's my mood, and my mood is basically a teenage lifestyle brand the most Brandon, the world. She's not. It's not catering just teenagers because lots of like foot year old friends and family all loving it. It's the first brand that's kind of a mix of beauty, lifestyle tech body bathing. It goes all across categories and when it lives in the world of boots, it will live in their bathing area, but it sells my cases, power Bank charges. Everything's based on very luxury high end ingredients because normally the kind of teen audience currently, it's very sweet in terms of fragrances. And so we've sort of gone for much more kind of luxury high end ingredient bases, much cleaner, fresher smells, and then tech and accessories, because we're imitating how you chop online that you would buy a phone case, and then you buy lip balm and then you might buy makeup bag. And then you might buy shower John x. week and we're trying to do that in a bay in boots which hasn't been done before because nominee it would be in the tech area in the beauty accessory area and in the bathing area might think is really cool. And you evolve these start-up announcing, and then you've seen there's more. You're a real innovator in the industry. Is it like a gut feeling that you go with, like how spotless trends and spoil? It's mainly big things. Mainly gut feeling. I think it's mainly got feeling whether you get it right over on a read on what you think's coming next. And then of course, we do all the trend stuff all the forecast and stuff. We read everything, but I think our best ideas come from gut feeling and this could be interesting all coming up with something that's not expected..

So I think shades like that probably we asked we have kind of that like summer bright season. Do you have any topics for bribes? See I went for kind of this O'Shea out and lily.

I loved this. What are you wearing today? I'm wearing whiter. We'd lost it last summer, and we've reprinted again with our new colors this year because it was literally the most popular color. We did all of last year. So it's come back again this summer because it's just for a few months. You get white polish, I realized why. Now. It's a real pain to formulate likes. If ice shut a read, the really hard in perp was really hard in nail polish. Is there one color that's like, I think, let's get right. I think Neons over the years have been really hard. They've definitely easier recently, but getting Neons that come onto your the way that they look in the Barclay. It's very easy to get it to look amazing the bottle and then comes out quite gel like, and it's not got solid pigment color. I used to boy first and then put on what we did for years. We used to sell the why underneath as a base coat say because it didn't work so much better with it. This year we've launched Neons without the white for the first time ever in it's full pigment color, and it's amazing. So I think that was done Neal's for years in this use of one the first time that it works without a base through those. And there's a gorgeous like or Injia careers. Yes. Don't need you don't. Editing underneath those. And then we're trying at the moment to do all these sort of oil slick shades near that kind of, I think it's a sort of trend around I shudder as well. They sort of oil slick. You see multiple colors in Jerry. Gregory me those and they've been really hard because they look amazing in the bottle and they paint on your now quite gray, and just make sure that the bit dirty, it's not funny. I should lows the guys in the office, love it like it's really cool and I'm like, no, no one wants is in the engineers look dirty. You don't looking now, so it's not right yet, but we're still, we've been. We tried that one season before we didn't land it hard onto do. Are you still really involve them when it comes? Yes, he proved them product. I think that's really nice for people to hear a huge brand. You wouldn't know? Yeah, always, I think because there's no product that I think we've ever launched announcing that I had those moments thought. I'm not sure about this one that it's ended up being better all where it's not been right over the years, but there's nothing. I think we've ever launched the. I have been involved in the process in some way or another, but the ideas now come from multiple. Places for years. Every product that we launched would only have come for my ideas now I'd say probably half to in half come from everywhere else, but then I think you're naturally because you've sort of been doing it for a while. We'll always tweak things like that. All slick one, it's come from kind of makeup trend that the guys have picked up on. But for me, it's not. It's not right yet, you know, needs to be. I think people trust us in quite flat colors, a flattering. They can't just be on trend and then they look nasty on your skin. I think that's, I think we should have. We've always managed to steer away away from sort of its trend for the sake of trend. It has to be trend. Look. You feel good. 'cause that's what matters. Not just how in the bottle, it's the same with Lipizzaner. I think it's can look amazing on a bottle and then it needs to look on and multiple people and multiple skin tones, multiple ages. I think that's one thing really well. It's very flattering shades timeless because when deport square I come out years ago. Yeah, early days, two thousand two thousand and two thousand and three classic. That's crazy. Sixteen years people still wearing people's favorite is their best selling shade over the time period porchester square, which is the and Maitha lane, which is kind of dirty nudie pink. Those two.

"Services. So I think that's positive thing in the you'll accustomed feels I've ever relationship with you 'cause you, you touch them directly by Jimmy service, but I think product because I didn't come from a now background or even abusive background, so it fashion we set out to go, what is the best product in the market? You know, we like the fact that this polish does this. This product does that, but we don't like this and we don't like that and you kind of mix it all together to go. Could we have a formula that does all of the good things are that other people do and combine that could we have cooler, fashion shades and other people, but really flattering, and then just get this amazing, amazing quality out there because a lot of people talk to me about the they do talk about color and Trump. Look, people just talk about quality, and I think in the end painting announces Pfaff. So it's is one of those things that you want to have lovely now, but. No one actually really wants sit down and do their nails because you know, you gotta wait for it strikes much harder work than just putting you conceal on. And so I think if you can give people products that they know gonna last three days longer than another brand they bull, then it's nicer. You've got product that's going to last. That's going to look great. The color is going to be flashing, I think than people pound Poway. It sort of works out. Well, this is something that's gonna come off in a couple of days and let's tap out color. You're saying the background was in fashion background was in Maxine. So I worked Daily Mail. And then at Tatler magazine, do you think that's had a real influence? Do you think you have that kind of I because of your background in fashion when it comes to call, that's always been obsessed. Like when I was a kid, I used to things. My dad went to impression. I mean, different fashion flight years as a buyer for Littlewoods, and they kind of worked his way up to sit with all the kind of glamorous magazines because obviously spend their whole lives copying designer brands that was their business. And I used to sit with all those lovely magazines like he'd like w and all. Those things that like no one had heard of grew up in north, northwest, no one, no one's dad w. magazine that was very. And I would sit and rip them all out and I couldn't really drew very what I try, but I wasn't a good drawer, but I basically would make up my own fashion designs and stuff an attempt to sort of joy. I always liked color and fashion and play, and plus it should be fun anyway, it's the end the day just nail polish. It should be fun in fashionable to make you feel good and is such a fun brand. You've got over one hundred shades. Right? Do you know anyone? I mean, I think in terms of total across the years, we're about five hundred shades. Anyone have hundred up and running. That's amazing. All named after old London stra mainly London streets. But over the last year or two, we've kind of branched out as well done smarter. I love as a London go one of things. I absolutely love about the brand. I get really excited when it's like a street. You know something. So let's talk about the colors. Can you pick a favorite like picking a favorite child child? Hits three, then. Well, my office give her up. So I go Shakoor black taxi, which is black, really depresses. Colored things because I love that now police of ood is left it, and so I read, I go back to black pushes. The square probably would be one of my favorites. And then I normally anyone time, they'll be a hot neon, color Cora, Lord, bright orange red. We didn't amazing orangey red for the for the Victoria. I remember one is cool Judah lid. Yeah. Yeah, I think that was huff it or fiery red orange tone of red. I just think it's more fluttering than a regular Ed. I remember. So I love that was too in that collection was also a great news. So I love those. And then you took about the election before Lexi's Alexa star, and I loved the Alexis stars and just on cheese to wear like clear nails and just the stars, no other color..

"Forget that you have like bigotry that you would get your nails done if you're in New York, and I just remember thinking, no one I know in the UK does that no one ATL gets their nails done. I mean the on their wedding or christening. Your whole life that we interviewed as well to cross section of people. They most people had got their nails done, never once or twice. And it would include like your wedding, your sister's wedding or christening? It was never. I got my nails done because it was Wednesday, and I read somewhere that people in the UK then were quite barris the idea of getting their nails done in public. Yeah, so alien now, we have people saying that they had never got announced on exactly. Don't not sure about getting on in public, although anyone that ever been to the states and got it done with sort of open to and they did say getting your nails done was much more likely than getting your makeup which you think now people getting to make in the middle of department stores as well teeth or eyebrows. And I think they felt that was the most comfortable thing because it was a way we had also swimming. There's comments on, I'd never get my feet. I in public. Your legs just you feet. But never get my feet out in the middle of Selfridge's and obviously people do. What do you think is about the Brown that I feel like we will make people who love your brand? Very annoying. My friend, Sammy or any has now's policies. We were trying to me and she was saying producer, she was saying that her Graham is set. He He had had a. a really loyal ground goodie bag. What do you think is about the brand? Do you think is that concept that they can say, come into store on, have their nails painted as you think that crates real well rounded customer experience, I think you touch customers when you do.

"People oversee? No, you as the founder of now Zang. I'm we both have so many maisy memories of the brand where such huge fans, we always have failed. We did on the, yes, we did not going to test you on the color. Don't worry. No, mine's quite each one of my favorite, and it was palsy Alexei has a whole blog post this back in the day, always kept it. So really nice did on nails, especially if we should bring it back every every so often we find what in the archives that needs to come back. It's like a gray blue. It's Bill. I love say light, really like nice e classic. I actually correctly guessed this on a friend the other day, did you? Yes, she was like, yeah, payment. Now's porchester square. No. She's like, you all. Favorites. Oh, thanks. We wouldn't know how who started fee you have you always been very entrepeneurship. I hate that word. I can say it. I know it's very hard wood set. Quite frankly. I don't know. I think I always wanted to set up my in business if that means being entrepreneurial. And I think it could have been now's Inc. It could have been something else. I think the point that I was very early on in terms of starting out in what can you magazines? I was excited when I met people that had the rain businesses all in that kind of error of all the coffee shops coming over from the states and all things kind trending really while over here. I was always excited about what people where people were finding ideas and importing them or creating new ideas completely by themselves. So I think I was always Vietnam it with it. I've been doing it such a long time. I really much Dan the house, but the started with now BAAs right. It's started always with product. And now boss I've read actually because we have an office clear out, not that long ago and I read our first business plan recently. I mean, the things changed, but it was always open now BAAs. Ause sell products in the now BAAs built the brand and sell the products outside of the now boss. For the first time we opened, I, which is in south Molton street back in the day, we had enough product to fill ten, twenty stool. So remember the way it had failed miserably. We were left with three years worth of store stock. We had bucketloads stop because you'll the minimum orders what year was nineteen thousand nine zero longtime ago. Very different street now, south streets and it was new that went really all the people do in offing? No. Well, when we opened, we thought we would any people. And then within a few months, the word the companies opened up there was like New York. Now company there was something called scarlet. There was a few that opened, and I think the only difference between them was we had product and no one else had product, and I think we sort of that was it was really important to how the business, but I don't think I knew it would be the savior of the business, like without product you couldn't survive because those service only businesses didn't really survive. I guess it meant if people came in had that house done, they could. Can take that same polish home with them and top it up or something. Memorable to remind you to go back and have it done there and also to enjoy the product. Also, we sold quite crazy color than a world of that was like French, manicure decade. I think all anyone had French molecule and we really talked our customers into having French manicures. We'd be what about this yellow? And have you tried this amazing, bright blue, you know, we always sort of encourage them to have these kind of quite different nails so that people would comment on the now's because I think we worked out very early if you super French manicure. It could be anywhere everyone had a French manicure people even what themselves at that point. Template thing. Exactly. So I think we would go color so that you'll never you wouldn't get it anywhere else. So I think we really encouraged all of our customers to solve this crazy color and why now I had an American boss, so I went over to the states quite lot, and everyone in Maxine world would always stop off..
