3) I live in Tennessee and am not ashamed to say I like the south, and the word yall
4) I’m either glued to my computer or sleeping at all times. I work as a nanny too

Questions for Me:

1) When and why did you start blogging?
I’ve only had my blogspot for a couple weeks but I’ve been posting on Reddit.com for almost a year which is when I started doing nail art. I guess I started a blog so I could have one neat collective place to put all my work. Also, the giveaways, I really really want to do a giveaway! Sadly I don’t have enough followers to warrant a giveaway.

2) How many bottles of polish do you own?
293

3) What color do you have the most of in your collection?
Blue and purple!

4) What is your first memory of nail polish?
When I lived in China, I was in Middle School at the time, and you could get pretty nice manicures for dirt cheap so my mom and I would go together and pick out pretty colors. The first time my interest really sparked was two Christmases ago when I was working as a cashier and a customer came through with one of the OPI Burlesque collection glitters on and from there I went on a mad hunt for it. Been infatuated with polish ever since

5) What do your friends/family think of your hobby?
My friends have been really great about encouraging me and complimenting my work. I have begun to turn my mother into a polishaholic. She paints her nails every three days or so now lol

6) What are your hobbies other than blogging?
Playing with my beautiful dogs, hanging out with my family/friends/bf and watching tv!

7) What's your favorite nail polish color?
Oh goodness. You can’t ask a polish obsessed person this. Are you really going to make me choose? Please no. Okay, fine, China Glaze First Mate. No Sally Hansen Ruby Rush.

8) What would be your dream polish?
Something that changed colors. Not just with sunlight, literally. Like an LED nail polish. I’m not sure how that would work but hey, you did say ‘dream polish’

9) What is something you love, but everyone else hates?
I really can't think of anything unique. I love the smell of my polish remover, it smells like berries to me which is odd because its just regular acetone in a gigantic industrial bottle.

10) What trends do you love?
I like anything galaxy, seems to be prominent lately. I love the Revlon Moon Candy collection!

11) What trends do you hate?
I dislike crackle
