I get a lot of questions on Tumblr and Twitter about basic nail care. I did a post on this when I first started my blog but it always bears repeating. You can spend time and money on the best manicures in the world, but if the canvas is sub-par then it will either look crap or not last.
Let it be known that I have no official training, these are just tips that I have picked up through years of a nail addiction!
I am ashamed to admit that I don’t own ANY indie polishes. I want to remedy this as soon as possible.
This is where you lovely nail fiends can help. Please suggest indie polish makers and link me to where I can buy them. Which are you favourites?
(Please don’t suggest Lynderella - not interested!!)

I have been working on something very exciting and I can finally reveal that I will be doing nails at the amazing Rockalily salon in my spare time!!
AAAAAAHHHH so excited!! I am starting this weekend (Saturday the 11th) but hope to make it a regular thing.
So if you’re London based, or just visiting, and would like to book an appointment just let me know (talontedlex at hotmail dot co dot uk)
I have picked the winner of my 1000 followers giveaway, I will be announcing it tonight.
Thank you to everyone who entered! Sorry I’ve been a bit quiet recently. I have been so busy but I have some very exciting news to announce soon.
I hope my new followers stick around - I’m nice, I promise!
I have had a rise in borderline-rude messages, both on here and to my personal email account, asking questions about nail art.
No ‘hello’ … no ‘please’ … no ‘thanks’. Just ‘HERE IS MY QUESTION NOW ANSWER ME’. I love people asking me questions or asking for advice, but manners are free. I am not going to respond to you if you can’t show me some basic courtesy. You can take your question to Google.
TL;DR - Don’t be a dick.
