FAQ

Paulina

Frankfurt, Germany

Where are you from?

I am from Poland.

When did you start your blog?

I started my blog in October 2012 and it was my fiance who talked me into it.

What equipment do you use to photograph your nails?

I use Olympus E-510 with a 35mm macro lens. I photograph with natural light, but when it’s dark outside I help myself with a daylight lamp (it imitates a natural light and it works great!). I also made a good use of my old shoe box and I am using it as my lightbox (very DYI, I know).

What are your favorite nail art brushes?

I get this question a lot. When I started doing detailed nail art, I got these brushes from the Born Pretty Store. I am still loving them. The bristles are very soft and flexible, which makes it easy to operate.

What is your favorite base and top coat?

My favorite base coat is OPI Natural Nail Base Coat or Glisten&Glow Stuck on Blu! At the moment I have two favorite top coats, Glisten&Glow HK Girl and Seche Vite Top Coat.

How do you keep your cuticles so nice?

I moisturize my cuticles all the time! I do have my favorite nail care products, but to be honest, it doesn’t matter what you use, as long as you do it regularly! Olive oil in your kitchen will do, in fact, I use it all the time. Before I go to sleep, I like using my favorite cuticle butter from Lush, Lemony Flutter. My favorite hand cream at the moment is Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Unscented Hand Cream (the red one).
