Meet Krystal Emery, the blogger behind PolishGalore!
How did you get into nail art?
After seeing The Daily Nail and all her amazing nail art, I wanted to see what I could do. (I’m still working on it.)
What is your favorite color of polish?
Which celebrity’s nails would you jump at the chance to do?
Zooey Deschanel has been down with funky nails for a while, so I think it would be fun to chat with her and give her some fun nail art.
What’s your favorite nail trend?
Holographic polishes such as Halo Hues by Color Club and Hologlam by China Glaze.
What is your favorite current beauty trend?
Texture nails – from the sand-like polishes coming out from China Glaze and OPI to the flocking powder “velvet” from Ciate to caviar nails and rhinestones.
Favorite beauty product?
I start my day with First Aid Beauty Anti-Redness Serum to help calm my skin.
What is the biggest nail mistake that you are seeing right now?
There is just no reason for chipped nail polish! Shellac allows you to have a flawless manicure for 2 weeks.
Do you have any other hobbies?
I also cross-stitch in my spare time.
What is your favorite nail design that you created?
I love the sponged nail technique which I tried once but am far from perfecting. My Gradient Manicure post is based on an amazing tutorial by The Nailasaurus.
Do you have a favorite musician or band. What design would you like to put on their nails?
I don’t, but I’d love to have a red gradient with red jelly glitter on Taylor Swift.
What are your trend predictions for 2013?
In nails, I think thermal (temperature changing) is going to be the next trend. Indie/Etsy sellers are hand-mixing thermal polishes now and it’s just a matter of time before mainstream polish picks up on it.
