Woohooo!!! I reached 901 followers tonight. I’m going to do a giveaway when (if!?) I get to 1000. Already starting planning it so stay tuned!
Thank you so much to everyone who follows me, you are all lovely and amazing.
My little blog was featured on What’s About Town’s blog! I can’t stop smiling!!
Check it out here: http://www.whatsabouttown.com/blog/2012/04/talonted-lex/
Have a look around while you’re there: it’s a really great site that is getting deserved recognition after appearing in Vogue last month!
Thank you so much! They are real. My secret weapon is OPI ‘Nail Envy’ - two coats under every manicure. It’s like steroids for your nails!
THANK YOU!! That means a lot!
Hoorah! Another year closer to the grave! I got some beautiful polishes as presents so I’ll be swatching them this week. Exciting!

Thank you so much! Your stuff is really great too. I just added you on Twitter as well :) x
Hi! Thank you so much, you’re very kind.
I can’t believe I only found your blog today, your manis are great!
It looks so pretty all laid out but doesn’t look like there are that many…I didn’t include my base coats/top coats/treatments etc. or my nail art pens. Altogether I have a collection of 279. I am trying to be a lot more strict with buying polish as I have pretty much every colour covered, so I try to only buy really special ones now… (We’ll see how that goes!)
I need a better way to store them though. At the moment I have my favourites on a wall rack and the rest in a huge flight case. I need them all out where I can see them I think…
My prize for winning the Collection 2000 nail art competition arrived today: their whole range of polish! I am so excited! Thanks to everyone who voted, I really appreciate it.
I’ve decided to extend my nail mail sale to cover all the nails in my store. Simply buy at least 2 sets of nails, type in ‘TALONTED’ in the discount code box and receive 25% off!
Have a look at what’s for sale here: http://talonted.bigcartel.com/
Hi, thanks for the question. I get most of my nail art stuff from ebay.
Hi Anna! Thank you, I am loving the new shape as well!
I’m lucky to have naturally fairly strong nails but I do use OPI Nail Envy under every manicure which I think really helps. I definitely recommend it.
If you like my nails and would like to buy some, to have as your own and call your precioussss, have a look here:
Big Cartel: http://talonted.bigcartel.com/ (where I’m also having a mini-sale!)
I now ship worldwide as well so have a peek. Also if there are any nail designs on my blog that you think would work as a set, just let me know! I’m always looking for new ideas.
Hi! Thanks for the question.
I just had to take a deep breath and go for it. I started by filing the corners off so they were rounded nails, then I just kept filing the sides until they were they shape I wanted.
Remember to file from the outsides of your nails towards the centre in one direction, don’t see-saw the nail file as it weakens the nails.
I hope that helped, and good luck!
I am having a sale on mix and match nail sets. Have a look here:
Hello! I am having a nail mail sale! Take a look here:
I have also started shipping to the US! Hoorah!
Oh my gosh!
20,000 views is insane! Thank you so much everyone. I appreciate every single one of you. I have only been doing my blog for 6 months but I can’t imagine not doing it now! I love it and love reading your questions, responses and suggestions, so keep them coming!
