  1. Thank you again, for the wonderful nomination! You have a really wonderful space here! I'm glad you found me, so now I can follow you too :D

    And here are my answers to your questions:
    1. about 120
    2. squivols - i felt that they are much stronger that way.
    3. definitely blues (which includes about anything that has a hint of blue in them LOL!
    4. Oh, I can't answer this as I'm not sure what you mean, is it a brand stuffs or you meant like if i were to be stranded in a desert..... =P
    5. Practice makes for betterment.
    6. I have a few, glitters (does it count??), layerings, gradients also, the contrasts between matte and gloss - I haven't try that yet.
    7. Essence - affordable and has a variety. Etude House is fine with me too but they are pretty smeary. Revlon - great formula and great colours. Tip Top Nails South Africa - super smooth application and great colours and free of 4 harmful chemicals.
    8. Sally Hansen Extra Strength
    9. Seche Vite
    10. In storage boxes
    11. Both! :D But i lean more on the latter - sides into the middle.

  2. Thanks Lacqueerisa, I thought your blog was fab and am following you now too...great to get your answers x

  3. Yey, you're welcome! you deserve way more followers Vanessa, your manicures are flawless and so pretty! Can I ask what oil you use? I only use hand cream but I could probably do with some oil now it's winter!xx

  4. Thanks Charlotte...must say your page amazes me every time I visit it! I use OPI Avoplex oil as can't use sweet almond oil which is in most other brands. I get it from Lena white where you can buy unboxed 15ml bottles with a brush for £9.50 (normally around £16 boxed) it's fantastic x

  5. Aww thank you Vanessa :) ooh I'll have to get some. I've never had a nail care routine but with taking pictures of my nail art I should start!!x
