This week on the blog is our natter with our Ambassador Bethany AKA
BNailedToPerfection. You won’t believe how many gel polishes she managed to put on in one sitting!
What’s your name? What does your family call you? Do your friends have a nickname for you?
Bethany, or some call me Beth. I got called “B” a lot in high school but we just call each other luv and hun these days lol
What is your day job? (Apart from being an IG hand model and influencer extraordinaire of course)
E-Commerce Packaging Specialist for a polythene manufacturer
What was the last thing you binged on Netflix?
Dexter…currently on season 4 and this is the third time watching it!
If you could have any superpower, what would you choose and why?
To heal people.
What are the world’s best crisps?(Hard hitting journalism here)
Mmmmm tough one..I’m limited to what crisps I can have now due to being Coeliac but my fav, pre diagnosis, were Pringles Texas BBQ!
You’re off to a desert island; what ONE nail polish do you take with you?
OPI Nail Envy. Got to have a good base coat at all times.
Who or what inspires your nail art?
No one in particular really. If I am struggling with my mojo I’ll just browse Instagram or flick through my stamping plates until something comes to me.
What has been your favourite MeeBox theme to date and why?
I think it has to be the indie take over that A England did: Splash. It was mermaid themed and all indie polishes…what more could you wish for.
How often do you paint your nails?
Usually I only paint my nails at the weekend but I can paint them numerous times. I’ll usually do my final mani Sunday and leave that on for the week.
If you’re in a real swatch session, do you use a peel off base so you can keep trying on different colours?
I use clear liquid latex when I swatch. My swatch record is 20 gel polishes in a night 😂
How often does your left hand match your right hand? Are your nails on both hands the same length?
Never lol I’m too lazy to stamp my Cindy hand so she’ll usually just get a plain polish, but I’ll use the same polish that I used as the base from the design I did on my swatch hand (if I did a gradient I’ll just pick my fav colour lol). My Cindy hand is usually shorter but not a big difference.
Describe your nail prep for us… Do you have recommendations for products you use on your naked nails before you get cracking on your nail art?
Just a good base coat like OPI Nail Envy or Nails Inc Nailkale
How do you take such beautiful pictures and videos of your manis?
I have a Nikon Bridge camera and take pictures in a light tent. For my videos, I use the same camera on a tripod.
Finally, What do you use to edit your content?
I use Picsart for my picture editing and Power Director for my videos.
Where can we find you?
