Jacie said… “I really don’t like the square acrylics that people like Jordan wear. They just look so fake and not very feminine. In my opinion, anyway.”
(I agree, I think they look quite vulgar when they’re very square. I prefer a squoval shape to nails whether they’re false or natural.)
Kirsten said… “Please people, don’t let anyone ever come near your nails (natural or otherwise) with an e-file! If they need one, they suck and you need to find a better stylist.”
(I wouldn’t have known that if you hadn’t have said, thanks for the advice!)
Nathalie said… “I will never judge someone who wear some (not even the bad tasted stuff like disease flowers and bubbles). If a girl feels more beautiful with this, then go for it.”
(That’a admirable, but I’d definitely pull an ‘ewww’ face if I saw someone with bubble nails! Hehe.)
Helen left a lovely scare story about acrylics, which ended with… “I decided that I couldn’t cope with it any more and one day soaked the lot off. It took a year to grow out the damage.”
(Eeesh, not cool D:)
Jools said… “Battling with hardcore nail biting, I’ve found the glue on falsey nails have helped me a lot! Aslong as they are done right – rad!”
(Well that’s as good a reason as any!)
Here’s this week’s burning question, as suggested by (the very talented) Liloo…

How do you care for your makeup brushes – how often do you clean them, what do you clean them with? How do you store them, and what do you do with them when you travel? Tell all!
Liloo’s idea for the question came about whilst we were having a chat on Twitter about brushes vs a damp sponge for applying foundation. She said she couldn’t be bothered with cleaning a foundation brush every day and I had to agree – I only clean mine two, sometimes three times a week. Is that kinda gross? Haha I’m hoping it wouldn’t harbour any germs that aren’t mine since I don’t share anything. So yeah, I clean face brushes a couple of times a week and eye brushes less often – I spot clean them on a wet wipe every time I use them to get the worst of the colour off but I only deep clean with baby shampoo maybe once a fortnight. I’m too lazy with this shit, I know.
I store my makeup brushes in a BIG square vase I got for a pound from a charity shop, specifically for the purpose. I spent a couple of weeks hunting around charity shops specifically looking for a cool vase or similar of a decent size to store my makeup brushes and I found the perfect one for only a pound! :D When I travel, I don’t do anything special like brush guards and all that jazz, they just go in my travel makeup bag.. Again, lazy!
So, tell us – what are your makeup brush habits?
