Meet The Blogger: Meet Sarah of 25 SweetPeas

It's Meet The Blogger Time! Today's Meet The Blogger is Sarah from 25SweetPeas

What made you start a blog? I have always loved writing and when I realized I could put it and my nail art together I thought well why not! Plus I’ve always loved computer related things and thought it would be neat to run my own site which all just went together really well.
How long have you been blogging? I started my blog January 21st of 2015, and it had been a long time coming. I had actually started Instagraming my nails in August of 2012, but not regularly until the summer of 2013.
What would you say makes your blog unique? I like to think mine is a bit more unique because I like to make it personable. I didn’t wasn’t to just list off what I use and how I did the look. I have always loved reading things where the person writes like they talk if that makes sense, so that is what I try to do. Also I love to have a variety of post types. By that I mean, swatches, art, videos, and collaborations. Just fun things and keeping people interested.
What's your favorite part of having a blog? I love all of it honestly, I love the interaction with others who have the same interests, and I love getting to work with so many amazing people. Overall running a blog is just fun.
Have you ever reviewed a product that has become something you use all the time? Absolutely! I have found brands in general now that I just love and have become my go to brands.
What would you say is the downside of blogging? I would say the downside is that even though you may have what you thought to be a great post it may not even be read. There are a lot of people who love the pictures which I do too, but some will just look at the photos and not read what you wrote. So therefore there is less commenting/interaction with the readers which is sad because I love that part.
Do you have a least favorite post that you've written?  Yes, actually probably a group of them. Haha! They would be the ones from the first few months of blogging where they were really just basic and not all that unique. Plus occasionally you will do a mani that just isn’t the best and that can set the whole mood for a post.
What is something you have to have while writing a blog post? When I am writing a post I have to have music on for sure! I pretty much have to have music on for everything I do!
Do you think your blog has changed of the years? Yes, mine has only been open for little over a year but even in the past so many months it has changed, with formats and such of just me finding better ways to do things
Are you married? Nope, a bit too young for that right now !
 Do you have any kids/pets?  We do have a pet, who I refer to as my little sister! Her name is Dixie and she is a Cavalier Kings Charles. She is the sweetest little girl ever.
Any advice for new bloggers? Don’t hold back. If you have a neat idea for a post just do it and don’t stress on your view count. View counts are great and all but they don’t gauge how good you are. The first few months of blogging its you learning how to do everything, and how to promote each blog post. Once you find what works best for you things will all be worth it! 

Thanks so much for being a part of Meet The Blogger Sarah! You can find her at her blog & the following social media pages.

Model City Polish SB 19 January 2016

So I thought today I would be kicking off 7 days of green nails for St Patrick's only to realize that it starts tomorrow!
But don't worry I still have a pretty polish to show. 

Today's color is SB 19 January by Model City Polish, a pink holo polish with silver holo pigment.
I used 2 coats plus 1 coat of Glisten & Glow HK girl topcoat.
I wish it wasn't raining so I could show what it looks like in natural sunlight. But anyways this color has become my favorite pink polish. 

SB 19 January is available to purchase  at Model City Polish Etsy Shop 
But act fast, there is only 1 bottle left & once sold it's gone forever.

Essie Bikini With A Martini

The following post contains affiliate links.

I've been sucked down the indie rabbit hole that I've really haven't touched mainstream polish. But I've been eyeing Essie's Retro Revial line, mainly because I've been hearing about it since December. Well last week I finally saw them instore so I picked up a couple. The color I'll be showing you today is Bikini With A Martini, a frosted pink iridescent polish.
I used 3 coats plus 1 coat of Glisten & Glow HK Girl Topcoat.

Honestly, it's pretty but that's it. 3 coats & it still looked sheer. Plus it took forever to dry, I had to touch them up twice because it smudge so easily & it had been 15 minutes since I had applied the topcoat. The brush was small, maybe it's me because I've gotten used to a wide flat brush but this brush was pretty small.
Maybe I should just stick with indies.
Bikini With A Martini is available at Walgreens, Amazon &

Meet The Blogger: Meet Jacquie of Claws Up!

It's Tuesday so that means it's time for Meet The Blogger!
I'm so thrilled with the response & encouragement since I started this series. I'm hoping to continue it for a long time:)
Today's blogger is Jacquie of Claws Up

What made you start a blog? - 
I have always been really big on self expression. I love to wear fun clothes and I used to dye my hair all the colors of the rainbow. When I graduated college I started working at the Bronx Zoo and a doggy daycare, and I had to go back to normal hair, and wear a uniform everyday. I felt like I was going stir-crazy not being able to express myself, so I got into nail art. It was the one thing I could wear at my jobs that was fun. After doing nail art for a few months, I wanted a way to save and document all my creations, so I decided to start a blog. 

How long have you been blogging? -
 I started my blog in November of 2011, so it has been a little over four years.

What would you say makes your blog unique? - 
Nothing is off limits. I may be a nail, beauty, and style blog, but I'm not afraid to get personal too.

What's your favorite part of having a blog? -
 I love having a creative outlet, and all of the friendships I have made.

Have you ever reviewed a product that has become something you use all the time? - 
I reviewed shea body butters from Me Thyme recently and I am almost running out! I use them every day!

What would you say is the downside of blogging? - 
Sometimes I feel like it can control my life. I spend a lot of time on it and it takes up almost all of my free time. It can be hard to make time for friends, and if life gets in the way and I fall behind on blogging, I get really stressed out. It's a second full-time job!

Do you have a least favorite post that you've written? - 
I don't think I have a specific least favorite post, but when I look back on some of my first posts I cringe.

What is something you have to have while writing a blog post? - 
A blanket to cuddle up with.

Do you think your blog has changed over the years? - 
Definitely! I started as a nail blogger, but I re-branded my blog to be a style, beauty, nail, and lifestyle blog. Plus, I think my photos and writing have improved a lot.

Are you married? Do you have any kids and/or pets? -
 I have been in a relationship for almost seven years, and we have been engaged for a year (he proposed last Valentine's day). We will be getting married in May of 2017. No kids, but we have a fur child, my kitty Muffin. I got her when she was dumped on the doorstep of my vet with a broken leg when she was a few weeks old. She turns 17 in March. I am obsessed with her, she is my true love.

Any advice for new bloggers? 
Don't give up! Sometimes I get down on myself because my blog is not the best. just remember you are blogging because it's what you love, and not for anyone else!
Thanks so much for being a part of Meet The Blogger Jacquie! 
You can find her at her blog & the following social media platforms.
