Q: Are your nails real?
A: Yes, they are 100% real.
Q: How do you keep your cuticles looking nice?
A: It can be an uphill battle. I use a cuticle remover before every manicure, and probably every two swatches when I've got time to sit down and do multiple. I'm also obsessed with the Burt's Bees lemon cuticle butter and I use Nubar cuticle oil (the vanilla one currently) at night. If I'm removing polish and I know it's going to take some work, I moisturize my cuticles first.
Q: What kind of camera do you have?
A: I use a Canon PowerShot SD1100 IS. The thing is - you don't need a super expensive camera to take good pictures. You just need to learn how to use your camera properly!
Q: What's your favourite topcoat?
A: I don't really have one... I'd say China Glaze Fast Forward if I had to pick one. It does smell quite strong, though. It doesn't bother me but it's something others have commented on! Most of the time, though, my swatches (and even a lot of my NOTD pictures) are without topcoat. Sometimes it's because I don't intend to wear the mani long enough to bother, other times it's because I forgot!
Q: What nail treatments do you use?
A: I don't really use any except cuticle treatments!
Q: What's your favourite nail polish brand and why?
A: I love China Glaze. Variety of finishes, colours etc... a lot of my favourite polishes are China Glazes. I must say, though, I've become very fond of a-england in the last year - the formulas are flawless, the colours are lovely (and I love the stories behind them!) and the owner, Adina, is one of the loveliest people I've been lucky enough to meet.
