Tell me a bit about your blog
I like to call my blog a personal blog. I write about the stuff I like (nail polish and make up included), about my animals, and sometimes even about my current mood.
How often do you post?
As often as I feel is right. Sometimes I won’t update my blog for more than a week, but lately, I post almost every day.
Are you left or right handed?
What’s your best tip for painting your other hand?
Painting my other (left) hand isn’t a problem, since I’m right handed. I find it easier to paint the nails on my dominant hand first. I like to start at the pinkie fingernail and move towards the thumb nail.
How often do you paint your nails?
About 3 times per week. If I’m not counting the nail polish swatching.
How many polishes in your collection?
A LOT. I don’t have them counted, but I did organize a nail polish database of the polishes I got. I don’t own all of them anymore though.
How do you store your polishes?
In carton boxes. (Note: just bought an Ikea Helmer)
Which brand has the best brush?
I can’t say which brand has the best brush, but I like flat, flexible brushes that aren’t too big and chubby. Tip Top polishes have great brushes.
Favorite polish brand?
Don’t have just one favorite brand.
Favorite indie brand?
I don’t like indie polishes. It seems to me they don’t belong in my collection. They’re too random and not categorized enough. Plus they’re mostly funky glitters which is not my favorite finish.
Best luxe brand?
Best bargain buy?
Essence Colour & Go polishes. The old ones.
Purple, electric blue.
Favorite color combinations?
Mint and gold.
Best color for work?
Vampy neutral red (something like Tip Top Red Rendezvous).
Best tip for making nail polish last longer?
Nothing works for me since my nails peel on a regular basis – wrapping tips works when my nails have a good day.
