10 Nail Questions:

Natural nails of enhancements ?: Natural! I don’t have the time to get ’em done so I just try to let my nails grow to a beautiful length and paint them every week.

Nail philosophy: I used to bite my nails ALL the time but then I started painting them again and I realized I didn’t like super short nails so I tried my hardest to stop biting them. I quit a nasty habit and I like having a fair length of pretty, painted yet natural looking nails!

I’ve always loved painting my nails. She even had her own line of makeup and polish named after me and my sister. I believe in wearing your nails as you’d like—if you want lots of glitter or wild designs, then go for it. If you like classic, then do it. I believe in taking care of my nails and I need to do a better job.
