VLB: Why do you paint your nails?
AOTN: I paint my nails for a few reasons. One, because I can! I love art and drawing and I'm actually an illustration student, but sometimes I don't have time to sit down to a 15-20 hour illustration. I can pop in a movie, and get my art fix in a couple of hours and that makes me feel good
VLB: Woot for creative minds and art students!
VLB: When did you start your blog and why?
AOTN: I started my blog a couple weeks ago, actually! I started it so I could have somewhere to meet other people who love nails and nail art. Instead of being a nebulous internet being I now have a solid home so I can say, "This is me, this is what I do. Come play with me!" I love what I've seen of the nail community and I wanted to be a part of that.
VLB: I absolutely LOVE the nail community. Everyone is so nice!
VLB: Sooo....you are a fan of cartoons/comics/Pokemon?!
AOTN: Ahahahahaha yes. I'm new to nails, but I'm standing on a lifetime of nerdity. Anime, video games, cartoons, sci fi, fantasy, you name it. Pokémon is a special love. I started watching it when it first aired on American television. (original 150 WHOO!) I've played almost all the games, got my little sister pretty obsessed with it and my goal is to eventually paint all 150 original pokemon on my nails. I'm 4/150 so far. The other three I've done will appear on my blog in the 2011 recap I'm doing.
VLB: Seriously, who doesn't have a little bit of nerd in them! I used to watch Pokemon with my brothers!
VLB: What is your all time favorite nail color? (You had to know this was coming)!
AOTN: Oh no! The favorite color question! Always so hard to choose! So far the polish that I've absolutely loved on my nails is OPI's Lucerne-tainly Look Marvelous. But I love purples and blues if I also want to be much more vague.
VLB: What is your all time favorite nail polish brand?
VLB: I LOOOOOVE all my (2) Nerd Lacquers! Haha
VLB: Lastly, where do you get your inspiration from?
