What is CocoRae?

“CocoRae is a ‘4 Free’ nail lacquer collection that doesn’t include four toxins that are found in most other nail polish lines: toluene, formaldehyde, dibutyl phthalate (DBP) and camphor. Our colors are always on-trend with current fashions and there is a color that works for everyone. And our polish is long-lasting and won’t harm your nails.”

What inspired you to create a nail polish company?

“I’ve always loved getting my nails done, but now that I have a young daughter I really don’t have time to go to the nail salon as often, so I thought, ‘Why not just start my own brand?’ I’m 22 years old and I wanted to have something that I could call my own and something that I could pass on to my daughter as she grows older.”


What is the most popular color in your collection?

“My most popular color to date has been ‘Vonnie,’ the mint green in my Spring/Summer 2012 collection.”
