It's time for another edition of Meet The Blogger!
Today's blogger is Kerry of Painted Fingernails.
I'm excited to get to know her, I just recently discovered her blog(and her amazing nail art.)this stamper very regularly for stamping and almost all of my freehand nail art is done with this brush - both of which were reviewed from Born Pretty Store. What would you say is the downside of blogging? Probably the time that it takes. I definitely spend more time on my blog than I'd anticipated. Of course, that's my choice - I could just post less, but I love doing it so I put that time in. It can get a bit mad when I'm busy at work though. Do you have a least favourite post that you've written? Ugh, what a question! Yes, of course I do. Almost 3 years ago I started my blog in August. I then saw all of these big bloggers talking about the 31 Day Challenge they were doing in September and I decided to take part. I felt like I was doing my nails all the time and it wouldn't be so bad - turns out a couple of times a week and every single day are pretty far from one another. I was also a total newbie at nail art and I was doing many things for the first time - not very well. However, I was determined to complete the challenge (and I did!) but that meant that some nails got posted that I wasn't so happy with - even as a beginner! The worst of the lot was my post for yellow. Don't look if you value your eyes! What is something you have to have while writing a blog post? I enjoy a good cup of tea but I wouldn't really say there's something that I have to have. I do like to watch a movie or listen to music while painting my nails, though. Do you think your blog has changed over the years? I certainly think that my nail art skills and photography have improved, and I've refined things like nail shape and cuticle care. My blog layout itself has also seen a few adjustments and I personally think it looks better now that it did back its early days. My focus has stayed on nail art though, although I might have a few other posts here and there. What was it like finding out you were getting press samples for the first time? It was really exciting! Reviewing does take time and effort but it's time and effort doing something I love. I'm not someone who gets showered in samples, though. Are you married? Yes I am, and to the handsomest man alive, too! Lucky me! I'm very happily married and our first wedding anniversary is coming up in July. Do you have any kids and/or pets? No kids yet but I have the cutest cat! His name is Gizmo and he's a sweetheart. Any advice for new bloggers? Make sure that you're really into whatever you want to blog about - whether its nails or something else. There's no use in spending your time and effort on something you don't enjoy! And - expect it to take more time than you think!
