Hi dears! I'm away for the weekend, but I've stolen the husbo's laptop to type this up because I'd rather not struggle by posting on my phone again! Unfortunately, I didn't prepare for this weekend very well! I didn't even paint my nails, let alone paint them for the challenge! I promise I'll get that done when I get home tomorrow. Can you tell I'm bad at planning ahead? ;)
Tonight's marvelous blogger is...

Here's some great stamping that Natalia recently showed on her blog! I love how the stamping is subtle and the gold really pops against this dark teal. Yay for stamping!
Tell me a little bit about yourself!
I am an aussie with a diverse cultural heritage, late 20s, married with two cat-babies.
Where did you get the inspiration for your blog name?
The two things that make up a lot of my day-to-day life, apart from work and my husband.
How did you first get into blogging?
I actually got "dared" to do it by a friend! He encouraged me to share this passion. I bet I couldn't get any followers ( I mean, who would be interested in my nails, right?) Boy, was I wrong! I am extremely grateful that the blog has such a fantastic following and I have made many friends!
How long have you been into nail polish and nail painting?
Just over a year now (my stash went from 9 bottles to 730 at last count); but I was painting my nails ever since I can remember.
How many polishes do you have in your stash?
What are your favorite base and top coats?
I like ridge filling base coats like Seche and OPI; for my top coats I usually go to Seche Vite, and I have a few others that are "normal" to avoid shrinkage.
What are some of your other hobbies or interests?
I like to plan parties and holidays it's like a different kind of "window" shopping.
What is your #1 polish lemming right now?
Having returned from a two week holiday, I am still unpacking all the nail mail that arrived whilst I was away - so that little voice inside my head is quiet!
If you only had one polish on a desert island, what would it be?
Face of Australia Calypso Gold.
Do you prefer freehand art, taping, or stamping?
I like stamping for the convenience, recently I have tried to do a layered stamp and I loved it!
What upcoming collection are you most excited for?
Anything that has glitters in it gets my heart racing!
What is the best Christmas present you've ever received?
Anytime I get a present I am not expecting it's the best feeling ever!
Gingerbread men or sugar cookies?
I love gingerbread!
Multicolored lights or all white?
I have both (reminds me - I should really get the tree up LOL!)
What is your favorite holiday tradition?
Getting the whole family together.
So now you know Natalia! Make sure you check out her blog and some of her other more recent manicures! :D
P.S. OMG it's almost Christmas!
