11 Random Facts about Me

2. I have an awesome other half of over 2 years who supports my crazy polishing ways.
3. I have a majorly cute, messy pup called Lucy-her legs are 6 inches long (I measured).
4. I'm 5ft9"...some say this is tall for a gal-I say 'pass me my heels!'
5. I''ve had 3 different surnames so far and have never been married.
6. I buy polish almost every time I leave the house. So much so that I forget I've bought it and find it in my bag weeks later.
7. I have 3 tattoos.
8. I'm an awesome parallel parker...the other half says so.
9. I've lived in 12 different houses in my 25 years.
10. I've had the same best friend since I was 5 (I won't tell you her name just to annoy her)
11. I have just qualified in Acrylic Nails.

So rather than bombard you with 33 questions, I've taken a few from each gal and answered them..

When did your nail polish obsession first start?
Hmm I'm not quite sure, I think it started to get 'serious' this year but I've always loved anything to do with nails.

Who is your blogging idol?
I have many, but Sarah at Chalkboard Nails,Jen at The Polish Aholic  and Emma at Globe and Nail are a few of my favourites.

What is your favorite brand of nail polish and why?
At the minute I'm loving anything 'indie'..KBShimmer, Enchanted Polish and a-england are big faves.

What is your favorite color?
I'd probably say purple. I love green or blue polish though.

How often do you do your nails?
Every day unless I'm really busy or I just love my current mani!

What are the most important lessons you’ve learned in life?
Everything happens for a reason..that's my life motto and I believe every word of it.

Why nails?
Why not! It's so easy to change your look just by polishing your nails up, plus polish is just 'waaaaa' haha.

Where did you grow up?
I grew up in Bolton, England.

Did you have a nickname? How’d you get it?
I have a few: Dansy, Dan, Rodgy, Rodders, Wardy. They all originate from my name and surname(s).

Do you believe in love at first sight?
Yes indeed.

What do you do for a living?
I'm a Civil Servant (how exciting).

What's your favorite movie and why? 
Elf at the moment. It's my favourite Christmas film by far! Will Ferrell just makes me laugh my socks off.

What manicure that you have completed is your favourite?
I think my favourite so far is either my Alice in Wonderland nails or my Lazy 15 Challenge day 15 nails.

Whats your favourite song?
I love so many different songs I could never pick just one! I love anything from Alain Clark, Plan B, Paramore, Labrinth, Jay Z, The Eagles (old school!) just to name a few. If I reeeally had to pick an ultimate song I think I'd go for Lenny Kravitz 'Heaven'...aaahh such a pretty song.

Where do you buy polish from?
I buy most of my polish online or from Boots and Superdrug instore. Although I love a good bargain hunt in TKMaxx and the one pound shops.

What is the future of your blog?
Hmm good question! I'm not quite sure. I like to take each day as it comes but I'd love for it to just grow and grow. I'm quite happy just sitting here typing to myself though; I see my blog as my little corner of the internet where I can just do my 'thang' haha.
