Eleven fun facts:
1.I have a BIG family – I’m number six out of

England. I call myself a Kiwi now.
9.I cannot wait to graduate!!!
10.I don’t want to be a stay at home mum – which works

11.Even when I’m 50 I’ll still paint my nails.
Questions for me from the lovely
and why did you start blogging?
Gosh, I can’t
even really remember – I think my first ever blog was in 2007 where I wrote
about RANDOM things and did like an A-Z of my year… I remember doing one post
on nail polish even back then. That blog has long ago been deleted.
agirlwithsomeclothes this year – mostly I think I started this because a) I had
just got a new iPhone and was playing around on instagram, and wanted to show
my non-instagram friends my cool photos; b) I had so many cool clothes I wanted
to show off and I couldn’t be sending people pxts all day! and; c) pretty much
the same but with my nails. (although I created agirlwithsomenailpolish only a
few weeks ago)
bottles of nail polish do you own?
Well, I actually haven’t counted in a while. I suppose now
is as good a time as any.
Hold on a minute….
91 bottles – not including top and base coats
16 nail strips and foils
colour do you have the most of in your collection?
I probably have
the most of nudes and pale browns/pinks and lots and lots of REDS!
is your first memory of nail polish?
Well I don’t
know if I have a first memory…
I do remember being quite young and me and my mum were sitting outside D.E.K.A
(equivalent of Big W or K-Mart)and I’d just bought what must have been my first
nail polish and she was teaching me how to paint my thumb, while waiting for
dad to pick us up.
I also remember
in primary school designing a box (I can’t remember for what subject) for pills
you could take that would change the colour of your nail polish, literally no
dry or applying time!
do your friends/family think of your hobby?
I don’t know
that they think about it much.
My boyfriend definitely
gets the most trouble from it, and hates it when I paint my nails just before
we go out as it means he has to help pack my bag and put my shoes on (I just
can’t risk smudging my nails). His sister’s also seem to think it’s pretty
are your hobbies other than blogging?
SHOPPING! I mean
that is a big one! Especially buying new nail polish and clothes.
I also like to
read, watch TV, eat yummy food, cross-stitch and make jewellery and cards.
your favourite nail polish colour?
will attest to this – Coral Me Wild by Revlon is my favourite, and the colour I
choose to be buried in.
I also really really LOVE Navy Blue by Butter LONDON – but I have yet to add it
to my collection as I can’t quite justify $30 on a 14ml nail polish.
would be your dream polish?
I don’t know
that I have a dream polish that doesn’t already exist. I know Jessie (At Nailed
It) made reference to it already but I’d love to get my hands on some floam!
(Ship it to NZ please!)
is something you love but everyone else hates?
Miley Cyrus. Haha.
nanna floral cardigans (well my boyfriend hates especially)
nail trends do you love?
a feature nail (or two)
I’m also really
loving the new scale nails (I’m about to try some for myself right now
actually) and geometric nails with different shapes and tape.
nail trends do you hate?
the whole having extra bits hanging off your nails (like beads and stones and
stuff), as well as painting the skin around your nails to extend the design and
definitely hate Duck Feet nails!
I’m also not a fan of shatter polish (but admit some people can totally
It just appears that all my bloggers have previously been tagged...
But I will be sharing any new bloggers I find with you as soon as I can.
You may notice I have gone through a lot of my posts and changed my mistake.
Ombre nails are where one nail is painted a different solid colour - that goes gradually from lighter to darker.
and gradient nails are where each nail changes gradually between two colours.
hopefully that clears a few things up, and I now realize I've been labeling a lot of posts wrong, however since everyone seems to get the two confused I think I will still use Ombre when labeling my gradient nail posts.
