Q and A: Ask Me Anything!

I can't think of a clever, funny or even relevant introduction for this post so I'll just dive straight in!

This post is here for you to leave any questions you've got for me 
My plan is to make a video which actually features my face and voice *gasp* in which I answer your questions. I'm terrible at answering queries that get left in the comments so I want to make sure everyone finally gets the answers they've been looking for.



Your questions can be about absolutely anything. Go ahead and ask me about the weather, my favourite movie, oh or nails, you could ask me about nails!

There aren't really any rules, just nothing rude or too personal, those kinds of questions will obviously just be ignored but you're a great group of people so I'm not really expecting to see any! Leave your questions in the comments and I'll make the video as soon as I get the chance. I'll keep the comments on this post open for at least three days so you've got some time to think it over!

UPDATE: Sorry guys, but I had to close the comments earlier than I originally planned. I already have waaay more questions than I ever thought I'd get and if I accept any more, I'm afraid I'll never get a chance to answer them. Thank you for the amazing response!

  9. What do you do if you ever get a nail that breaks half way down the nail? Is there any way of trying to conceal it or do you have to cut your nail down that low? Thanks :)

  14. Ohai, was just wondering, I have serious issues trying to use nail brushes, I find it so hard to even draw a straight line. I'm not sure if it's the quality of my polish, the brushes or my method. I've heard some people use acrylic paint apparently. Can you explain your basic methods of doing nail art (ones that require brushes?) Thank you!

  15. Love your blog. Just wondering if you could share some info on how you photograph your swatches. Do you use a lightbox? And can you advise on how to set one up? What type of camera do you use - it obviously has a great macro setting! Thanks so much - look forward to the video =)

  16. Stephanie's question ("I love your nail shape, what do you use to keep your nails strong?") and Nailstyle's question ("Just wondering if you could share some info on how you photograph your swatches") is definitely also my question.
    I know at least latter is a difficult one - each people has their own clue/secret for their own "art" - but if you can give us a piece of them, it might be great!
    Looking forward to seeing your videos... :)

  17. Hi, love your blog! You mentioned on some of your posts that you use pure acetone and a nail brush to neaten up around the edge of your nails - where do you buy acetone? Thanks!x

  18. I was also wondering how you keep your nails strong. Mine keep breaking off. :(

    ReplyDelete
  19. How do you afford all the nail polish? It is so freakin expensive!!! And what type of polish do you use for manicures with more details? I think normal nail polish is too think to draw small details with. Thaaanks!

  20. I would like to know how you deal with peeling nails. OPI nail envy has helped but not solved the long term problem. Also, any tips/ tutorial on stamping on wide nails would be appreciated :) xx

    ReplyDelete
  21. Where do you buy your nail sets from? I cant find them anywhere? Thank you xx

    ReplyDelete
  26. Not sure if the answer can be found on your blog, I tried looking but couldn't find it: What cuticle cream/oil do you use? They're always so perfect! Thanks in advance! :]

  27. how do you get like associated with brands or stores like bornpretty ? Like how do you ask them if they can send you stuff to review and stuff? Where do you get your inspiration? If you were able to travel anywhere in the world where would you go and who would you take? What is your favorite book? What other hobbies do you have other than nail art?(:

    1. Greetings from Romania!

      Hope I still have the time to ask you something.

      How often would you advice me to do the manicure? Must I leave some days between manicures?
      Sometimes my nails get yellowish and I tend to worry about that.
      NOw I'm using an OPI base coat and sometimes no-name polish. Could those no-name polish get to the nail and affect it?

      Is there something I could do to enhance the health of my nails?

      Yes, kinda a lot of questions. Thank you so much!

  31. Sammy as a new blogger myself, I have to ask how you fit in posting nearly everyday? I have only been able to manage three times a week (pretty much every other day). Also, how long did it take you to start gaining followers? I've been blogging for over a month and have none. What could I do to gain followers. That's more than one question, I know. Thanks!

  33. hi,

    I love reading your blog. I'd like to know if you've got any advice on the way you get a perfect round shape without going all the way to your cuticles. Got any tips on perfecting this?

    Mine always ends up wonky, so I fill to the cuticles and therefore my skin can get stained with some polishes.

    thanks,
    Gabi

  34. How much do you spend on Polish on a monthly basis, and do you prefer to buy from the shops or online? And can you recommend me any places other than boots or tkmaxx. Or superdrug to get polishes?

    ReplyDelete
  35. How is everything you do so perfect? Do you just practice a lot? Would be great to see some bloopers!

  36. I have a problem whenever I finish my nail designs... the top coat just smudges my design no matter whether it's free hand or stamping... I guess the topcoat somehow loosens up the nail polish and that's the reason why it happens. sometimes it's not that bad but when it ruins the whole design it really drives me crazy :( it must be my technique because I've tried a lot of different top coats and I've waited a proper amount of time to let the polish dry and yet it happens... have you ever faced that problem? can you give us some advice how can we avoid that? Thank you for your answer!!

  37. Hi! I would like to ask you: Do you have a favorite brand of polish? and Do you think fake konad (not like bundle mosted or red angel but th eones that copy exact konad images) plates have the same images exactly or are they like: bigger/smaller/not as crisp?

    Also,I love the idea of trying to make some extra money by selling original nail art on those nails on strips. I would like to try to and was wonderinng were you get them? All I can find is loose nails, but not on a neat little strip live youve got.
    Could you please tell me where you buy them?

    Thanks!

  38. How do you care for your cuticles, and how do you shape them? I usually push mine back, but they always grow back and every time I try to keep them in control they always turn out wonky.

  39. I'm pretty sure this question is or will be asked a lot but how on earth can I get my nails stronger? I quit nail biting about a year ago and they finally started growing longer but they always seem to tear at the sides. Usually at the wrong moment so I have to tear them off completely instead of filing them down ): So yeah.. my nails are longer now than they have ever been but I can pretty much see right through them.. I'm kind of desperate to get them strong and healthy so please can you share every tips you have for me? Haha okay so besides my desperate cry for help I would also like to tell you how much I love your blog and your creativity! Your nail art is so awesome ^^
    Thanks for this opportunity!
    xoxo
