FAQs

How do you do the gradient nails?
Tutorial here

Are those your real nails?
Yes

Do you do the designs on both hands?
Not always no. Since I need to do a new design almost every day in order to keep this blog running, it doesn't make much sense for me to spend a lot of time painting the hand that's not going to be seen only to remove my hard work less than 24 hours later.
That's not to say I can't paint the other hand. Please see here, here and here for proof!

Where did you get…?
If you are curious about where I got a certain nail art item, please read the post in full and check for links in the post which will be a different colour to the rest of the text. I always list what I’ve used and, most of the time, leave a link to where you can buy it.
Here are some of the most common ones people are curious about…
Bundle Monster plates? Amazon.com, Amazon.co.uk, BundleMonster.com
Red Angel Plates? Amazon.com (US Only)

What camera do you use?
As of August 2013 all pictures are taken with a Canon 60D with 18-55mm lens.
Before then, I was using an Olympus E-510 which they don't make anymore.

What lighting do you use?
I use a fluorescent desk lamp from Argos.

Please see this post for more in-depth information about my photographs.

How do you watermark your pictures?
I use Adobe Photoshop to create the curved watermarks on my images. Here is a good tutorial.

How do you take care of your nails?
Please see my 'Nail Care Favourites' post.

What top coat do you use?
It will normally say in the post which top coat I’ve used. My favourites are Seche Vite and Essence Better Than Gel Nails.

Where do you get the blank nail sets?
I get them on eBay. Just search for 'European Short Nails'.

What stamping plates do you recommend?
I’ve only tried Bundle Monster, Red Angel and Konad. I’d recommend them all!

What Stamper do you use?
It’s a genuine Konad stamper and I got it on eBay years ago.

Very occasionally. You can check the tutorial page here.
I also have a YouTube channel but I don’t make very many videos.
