So here’s a question I get asked often; why blog?


Isn’t it time consuming repainting your nails all the time? (“you clearly don’t have children”) Isn’t it a waste of money buying all that nail polish? Aren’t you tired of looking at a computer screen by the time you get home from work? Are they fake?


To be honest the answer is Yes and No.

There are times when I think I should probably make the effort to do some stamping or nail art rather than just painting my nails. Especially during challenge months but with or without blogging I take real pride in my nails and they would always be regularly painted anyway.

I try not to think too much about the money my whole polish collection is worth. I have spent a lot on certain polishes but a big percentage of my hoard was given to me as gifts. I don’t have a lot of ‘untrieds’ like many bloggers; if I like them enough to buy them then I’m most certainly going to use them. I am not overly possessive of my expensive polishes (anyone can use/borrow them) and some of my favourite polishes cost me just 99p!

The screen time does bother me. I have to wear glasses permanently and I’m sure the screen time isn’t great for my eyes. So what do you do all evening? Watch the soaps? Ahem – enough said.

As much as I love painting my nails the thing that makes it most worthwhile is the lovely feedback you get from others. I have considered myself a part of the ‘nail community’ for almost three years and promise that they are the nicest, friendliest, most supportive group of women I’ve (n)ever met.

The beauty industry is notorious for bitchiness and back-stabbing but I am happy to say I’ve not experienced any of this. I love making connections with new people who share my love of nails and that’s the main reason for the tag-line on my blog. Let’s us bloggers stick together – there are some people who think we’re mad but all the best ones are aren’t they?

Oh and I almost forgot – they’re not fake, they’re mine! Viva ‘real’ nails
