Get the Look: Friendship

By Madeline Poole, November 2016

Q&A with Madeline Poole 

SH - How did you get inspired by the theme to create this look?
MP - I wanted to do something based on emojis. Sometimes when I'm talking to a close friend I can communicate entirely through emojis and memes. It's a sign of closeness! The yin-yang is a great symbol for friendship as it visually represents the way opposing forces can join and be interconnected.

SH - How is the topic of this theme relevant to you?
MPI think this theme is relevant to anyone! Friends are a huge part of my life. They're people who I experience every emotion with.

SH - A moment in your life when you celebrated this theme (e.g. for travel where do you like to travel for inspiration, for empowerment, who is your role model/inspiration, for achievement, what’s been the greatest nail success, for food your favorite restaurant or cuisine just now, and for friends how you and your friends like to get together and spend time).
MPI have a really social apartment and office - I always have guests over, or visitors popping in. My apartment is like a downtown touch up / phone charging / internet cafe.
