1. When did your nail passion start?

When I started to grow my nails, because they were so short before I had never really been able to paint them, and I loved finally being able to do things with my nails.

2. When did you start growing your nails long?

When my fiancée proposed to me nearly 2 years ago, because I wanted my hands to look nice when I showed people my engagement ring.

This is what my nails used to look like!! (November 2010)

3.  What are the secrets to growing long natural nails?

Will power to not bite them or pick at them, and nail hardener to stop them braking. (I used to use Barry M nail hardener - which I still absolutely LOVE, I am currently trying Nail Envy by OPI which is good so far.)

4. Do you like long or short nails?

Long but not too long.
