Hello! I'm Lauren, a PhD student based in West Midlands, UK.
Why I Started 'The Naily Mail'
I started this blog to keep a record of my nail art and to share it with other bloggers out there. I didn't realise how big the nail art community was until I started doing this so it's nice to be able to look through other peoples designs as well as share my own. My blog is now two and a half years old and in this time I have learnt so much and got to know some lovely bloggers. Having a blog is so much fun, it's difficult to start up and a lot of hard work to keep going, but it's definitely worth it. I recently won 'Highly Commended' in the beauty category of The Blogger's Lounge 'Blogger of the Year 2014 Awards' which was a huge achievement!
I started doing nail art at Christmas 2012 when I got a set of Rio nail pens, I'd wanted nail pens for ages so I was very excited! It turned out I wasn't as good as I hoped I would be, but that's not the point, nail art doesn't have to be perfect, it's your way of being creative on your mini canvases! Trying too hard will take all the fun out of it! When reading my blog you will see that I really do love nail polish; I just love swatching polishes and creating designs to share with you. My friends and family don't really get it so I love interacting with my readers and other bloggers who share my passion.
Thank you for visiting my blog, I hope you like it! Feel free to leave any feedback or suggestions about my blog or my nail art to help me improve it. Also, if there's a nail art design/swatch you would like me to do, or if you want me to do a tutorial on a design I have already done, then let me know! My email is: TheNailyMail@gmail.com - I look forward to hearing from you!
