Tabitha Storie of Kiss on the Chic has some incredible and original nail art, and her photos always blow us away! Get the scoop on the woman behind the nails in our interview with this notable nail blogger and Instagrammer below.
What got you into nail art?
I think it’s probably a mix between Pinterest & Chloe’s Nails. Pinterest lead to me Chloe’s Nails blog & I’m pretty sure I looked at every single one of her blog posts & tutorials! It started out as something to do once a week; now, I do my nails pretty much every night! It is definitely addicting!
What is your absolute favorite color of polish?
Cobalt Blue! I think I have about 7 already and I still can’t stop buying them. I am obsessed!
How many different polishes do you own?
Oh jeez, I quit keeping count around 200. I bet I have 300-400 now! All I know is my polish drawers are a workout to move.
Which celebrity’s nails would you jump at the chance to design? What would you put on her nails?
Zooey Deschanel! She always has creative and fun nails. I would totally let her come up with something crazy and funky because I have no doubt in my mind that she is creative!
What’s your favorite nail art you’ve done? What inspired you to try it?
One of my favorites would be the pastel gradient and chevron nails I recently did. Actually, I thought of the idea to do them when I was trying to come up with a pastel design to submit to Nail It! Magazine for the March/April 2014 issue.
What’s your favorite nail trend?
It’s a close call between chevrons and studs! I always look for an excuse to put studs on my nails and chevron nails are my go-to when I don’t know what else to do!
Besides polish, what is your favorite beauty product?
Definitely eye shadow/eye makeup. Although, I do wish I was more talented at applying eye makeup. I get frustrated when my makeup doesn’t look symmetrical.
How long have you been writing on your blog?
About a year and a half. Time flies! I can definitely see how much I’ve improved over the year and a half.
What was your most recent impulse buy?
Polishes from Liquid Sky Lacquer. I was totally a bad girl and spent more than I probably should have, oops!
What do you do outside your blog?
During the week, I work and go to school. I’m attending school to become a Respiratory Therapist! I’ll finish Spring 2015. On the weekends, I try to spend time with family and friends. I also love to shop in my free time. I’m known as a Netflix junkie too.
Are you close with other bloggers in the community?
Yes, I am very close with Tabitha from iDreamoflacquer.blogspot.com. I seriously have no doubt that she is my long lost twin. We’ve followed each other on instagram from the start of our nail adventure!
How do you juggle nails and other aspects of your life? Do you have a routine?
I usually focus on the other aspects of my life (school and work) during the day and then nights and weekends are my nail playtime. Trust me, it’s tempting to put nails first, but I know better.
What is your favorite beauty tool?
My clean up brush. It wasn’t always my best friend, especially when I first started doing my nails. Now, I can’t live without it! It is so crucial, in my opinion, to have clean looking fingers and nails.
