1. Why did you create a blog?
I hesitated to start one for a long time. I felt that we were already drowning in nail blogs, and so many already does it so good that there's no need for another one. On the other hand I occasionally got the question if I had one, because there were those who really enjoyed my NOTD photos (which I had been saving up on from the getgo, and shown on Makeup Alley and uploaded to Nailgal). Eventually I took the plunge mostly to fill the void of color accuracy. And here I am.
2. What kind of blogs do you follow?
Nail blogs. Nail blogs. Nail blogs. Plus political stuff.
3. Do you have a favourite make-up brand?
No. But when it comes to eye shadows I prefer mineral pigments, since my eyes get all itchy and runny from regular pressed eye shadows.
4. And a favourite clothing brand?
Not really. I like nice clothing, but refuse to spend money on it, so I mostly go back and forth between the H&M and New Yorker stores at my local mall to pick up basics.
5. What make-up products is essential for you?
High coverage foundation (I use Estée Lauder Double Wear), and black mascara (Kanebo 38*).
6. What’s your favourite colour?
Depends on the situation. Nail color: green, purple, teal; clothes: black, red, khaki; interior design: anything. My least favourite color to surround myself with is blue, which has been taken away from me by the Swedish right.
7. What’s your favourite perfume?
I have many and wear some, and right now I really like Demeter's Library of Fragrance in Funeral Home. One of my all time favourites is Alexander McQueen's Kingdom.
8. What’s the film you liked the most?
Impossible to say, first and foremost because of my unique movie dementia, but also because it's impossible to pick just one. That being said, I'm one of those huge fans of The Big Lebowski. Among other.
9. What countries/places would you like to go?
Lots and lots... But I hate traveling. I never save up money for it (don't have anything to save to begin with). Let's assume I'll become rich and independent at some point. Then I'd go to... In no particular order: northern Norway, Copenhagen, rent a house on the flat, Danish countryside, Amsterdam (tulips!), Warzaw, Paris, some place in the French countryside, Barcelona, Nihrida's hoods in Slovenia (looks so beautiful), Prague, Athens, Venice, Rome, Sicily, and then a thorough food trip through the Italian countryside... And that concludes Europe only. Oh, I forgot about the European parts of Russia. Leningr... I mean Saint Petersburg. ;) Do you want to hear about my longings for Asia, Africa and the Americas as well?! ;)
