The Manicured Monkey Presents: Bee Polished

Your name: Bee

Blog name: Bee Polished

Favorite brand/color/finish: It's so hard to choose a favorite brand but right now I think it's probably Barry M. I love cremes and greys, blues and teals.

Why did you start your blog: It originally started as a way for me to show my family and friends my nail art without clogging up their facebook feeds! And it became a way to share my passion with people who shared it.

What do you think is your specialty mani: I probably do a lot more leaopard than anything else. It was a mani I resisted for a long time but ended up falling in love with.

Where do you look for inspiration: Everywhere. I love to use patterns for inspiration and also abstract things like nature and food. :P

What's one mani you have yet to attempt: I haven't done much with flocking yet. Just one little stripe down a nail during my Harry Potter challenge. I like the idea of it but hate the exectution.

One nail trend you are not on board with: Duck nails. Or really acrylics in general. I love my natural nails and to me there's such a fine line between enhancements being fake and being narural looking.

Do you have a nail care routine: Not really. I try to use cuticle oil everyday but I mostly fail at that and I give myself a manicure probably once a month which is not nearly as often as I should.

What you hope readers take away from your blog: I'd like people to leave feeling inspired. I would hope it encourages them to look at the things around them in a different way and to see all the art the ordinary things around them have to offer.


I read all comments because I like to be interactive with my readers and respond. Please be respectful- no spamming- bad language. If you have a site you want me to see, email me and l will check it out :)
