20 Questions & Answers about The Nail Chronicle – My Written answers
1 – Favourite base coat you’ve ever tried?
This is a hard one to answer. I don’t really have a favourite but I’m currently swapping between Chill Zone and OPI base coats.
2 – Favourite cuticle/hand cream?
My favourite is definitely anything from RandM Nails. Their balms and oils smell amazing!!
Check out their Instagram page here: https://www.instagram.com/randmnails/
3 – Favorite mainstream brand?
OPI. Their polishes are generally great and long wearing. Take a look at my OPI review.
4 – Favourite polish from that brand?
Definitely the IT colour. Mainly because it was a colour that really surprised me. I bought it on special and thought it would be used as part of nail art but I never imagined it would turn out a pretty as it did.
5 – Favourite indie brand?
ILNP – They have amazing colours. It’s incredibly hard to be restrained when I’m on their site.
6 – Favourite polish from that brand?
Kings and Queens as its such a beautiful purple!
7 – Glossy or matte?
Normally I use a glossy finish but occasionally will use matte. Unfortunately, I find matte tends to crack after a few days therefore I have to redo the design.
8 – Long or short nails?
Long – Although I am a little restricted in length when volleyball season is on.
9 – Dark polish or bright polish?
Dark polish in particular I love blues, reds and black polish. However, I do like to mix it up a bit.
10 – Thick polish formula or thin polish formula?
Thin, but not too thin. I live in a humid, hot place and thick polish tends to have trouble drying. However too thin also really annoys me due to needing to apply extra coats.
11 – Nail art or solid colour?
Nail Art!! I love to show my designs and its a chance for me to be creative
12 – 3D nail art?
I rarely do 3D nail art. I’m ok with sequins but I find rhinestones to be too heavy and I want to remove them as soon as I can.
13 – Favourite top coat you’ve ever tried?
Oh, easy! This would have to be Chill Zone nails because dried quickly and is long lasting.
14 – Least favourite polish of all time
OPI Black due to it being very watery and such a disappointment. Despite the poor performance of OPI’s black overall I still like OPI polishes
15 – Top favourite polish of all time
Anything by ILNP
16 – Favourite polishes for spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter
Spring – Greens
Summer – light blue’s
Autumn – Purple, reds
Winter – Dark blues, black, red, silver
17 – Natural nails or fake?
Natural nails because similar to the issue I have with rhinestones I hate the feeling of extra objects on my nails, so I definitely prefer natural nails.
18 – Nail salon or no nail salon?
I can’t really say as I have I never visited a salon. Personally I be unlikely to visit a salon as I enjoy designing my own nails too much!
19 – What’s the most expensive Polish you’ve ever purchased?
OPI – XxxxXXXXXX for about $20AUD – normally I wouldn’t pay full price but it was the only brand that I could get the colour in and I needed it for a Harry Potter design.
20 – What’s the least expensive polish you’ve ever purchased?
I can’t remember the lowest price exactly but likely it’s $2AUD. I love picking up cheap polish to play with because if the design doesn’t work I’m not too bothered the nail polish going to waste.
