  1. Hey congratulations! I liked your answers, especially your current manicure. The picture is a lovely touch! I like China Glaze myself, but so far mostly just the glitters!

  2. Thank you so much for nominating me and following my blog! Hope you a have lovely weekend :)

    1. Read below. I thought I was replying. lol

  3. Thanks Cazzy, I emailed you. :)

    Citygirl, you are welcome!! We got to help each other!

  4. Thanks for nominating me, I have already done this though. To answer your questions: my favourite brand ia split between a-england and china glaze, if I created a polish I would want it to be a duochrome holofinish, the most difficult techniques for mr were fishtail braids as mine wasn't even and sugar spun which just didn't happen! My most wanted polish at the moment is cirque never nude. I have been blogging since June 2012. My best polish bargains are probably every Sally Hansen I own as the most I have paid is £1.99 yet they sell in Boots for £6.99! My favourite bloggers are the Nailaholic for swatches and the British Nail Bloggers for content because usually they post about polishes I can get my hands on easily! I also enjoy reading The Lacquer Loving Lawyer as I followed her blog from the start and I love the way she writes. On my nails right now are Barry Ms new Gelly in the nude colour with their Blueberry for polka dots. The element of bitchiness which can arise is something I don't like, I was recently in a FB group chatting about the new Royal Mail policies on nail polish. There was a girl who seemed insistent on making sarcastic replies to my every comment, so I blocked her. Next polish tends.... dunno, I didn't foresee the current textures, so hopeless to guess! My nail art at moment is something I am questioning so I can't really say, I think I'll start using more studs and glequins!

    1. Emma,

      Thanks for replying! I loved your answers. :D
      I try to get my polishes on special as well. It's hard to have such an expensive hobby! I tend to buy every two weeks. Ugh. Soon I'll end up with hundreds of polished. ;)

  5. Thanks for the nomination!! I have done this before also, but I plan to do again when I get some free time :) Love your blog btw!!

    1. No problems! It was fun and I'm happy I got to join your site. I'm glad I got to see your work. I love that so many bring different creativity to the community!

  6. Gracias por nominarme! Espero poder hacerlo esta semana, Saludos! ♥
