Here are the questions from My Adventures in Nail Art:

2. What is your proudest achievement? My hubby and I just recently celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary. ♥

6. How do you store your nail polish? I have 5 melmers
7. Which polishes are top of you wish list? I kind of impulse buy polish so I don’t have a very good wish list. I guess right now my top wanted polish is Sparkly Markly from Whimsical Ideas by Pam
8. Do you wear your nail art creations to work (or school)? Fortunately for me I haven’t had to work since I had my kids (17 years ago) so I don’t have the problem of work appropriate polish 😉
