  10. I'm an elementary art teacher! Well, soon to be as soon as the economy picks up and there are more jobs available! For now I'm just a lowly substitute 
  11. I've only been to the hospital once for 30 stitches when my brother slammed a door in my face and my arms went through the glass. I didn't think it hurt at all

11 Questions for me:
  1. When and why did you decide to start blogging? I started blogging as a way to show my nail art to a larger audience than just Instagram. I know not everyone has access to IG. My blog started in May just 4 short months ago. 
  2. Who is your favorite nail blogger? My favorite nail blogger is Temptalia. She has every polish you could imagine with reviews on each one. I'm more into posting nail art but I always go to her for reviews on colors I'm thinking about getting. 
  3. What is your favorite polish brand? My favorite polish brand was always Essie. It was my first love! However, I've gotten my hands on a lot of Butter London lately! I'm loving their unique, beautiful colors. It's a toss up! 
  4. What manicure are you currently wearing? Natural nails! I'll be doing a chevron later today for a contest. 
  5. If you were to lose all of your polishes but five, which five would you want? OPI Black Spotted, Lynnderella Nosegay, Essie Shine of the Times, Butter London Trustafarian and Barielle Falling Star. 
  6. What other hobbies do you have? I enjoy singing and playing the flute. I love to draw and photograph. Writing is another hobby I have! I want to write and have a book published one day. 
  7. What do your friends/family think of your hobby? My family loves my nail hobby! They always ask whats on them and ask about what contests I'm currently entered in. Whenever a package comes in for me they always bring it in and tell me I have nail mail haha. 
  8. How many bottles of polish do you own? I've only been into nails for just under a year. I've got around 200 bottles but really I'm not totally sure. 
  9. What is your dream polish? My dream polish would be a holo with light blue color. I'm thinking Butter Londons Fishwife but more vivid blue. 
  10. What color polish do you own the most of? I own the most blue! It's my favorite color besides silvers but I'm not super into metallic polishes. 
  11. What nail trend do you hate? The fake flared nail trend! I've seen it a lot lately where acrylics are applied that get wider as they go towards the tip. It's so unnatural and fake looking I don't know why anyone would get them!
