WAUF... Manicurator?

Why Aren't You Following... ? was conceived by Curly Polish as an attempt to help polishaholics put a face to the nails! Sometimes in our FB polish groups we don’t really connect those beautiful talons with the person behind them – often one who blogs! It is hoped that this series of posts will help polishaholics get to know new blogs and rediscover old ones by means of twelve succinct questions. Most of all, this series is designed to give a shout out to all the bloggers I admire the most – both big-time and small fry :-)


Welcome to the latest edition of WAUF! This week, I speak to Victoria from Manicurator! Let’s get down to business :-)

Name: Victoria V.


Since: March 2012.

GFC followers (at time of writing): 2,869

Signature bloggism: Uh..I don't know! (I'd say it's the modelesque hand poses - so elegant and polished! No pun intended hehe)

Fav brand: Impossible question! OPI, Zoya, Dior and Chanel top my lists.

Fav colour: Aqua, sky blue, pink, yellow, grey, etc! 

Fav nail art technique
Anything with striping tape. I love clean lines!

Would still like to try: Saran wrap technique.

One fact we may not know about you/your blog: I played the trumpet in my elementary school's band.

When not painting my nails you’ll find me... : Taking care of my little boys.

"Here's my latest favorite mani..."

Why I follow her: Surely this blog needs no introduction?! Victoria does the most beautiful swatches - they are definitely professional-level stuff! Highlights include excellent photo quality and lighting, and the fact that the featured polish is always photographed at every possible angle imaginable (total nail p*rn). As you can see in the pic above, her nail art is also immaculate - check out those smooth lines and the awesome colour combo! Victoria's nails and hands are just beautiful, and I think she may totally be in the wrong job!

So tell me... why aren't you following Manicurator?!

How to follow Victoria:


Thanks for reading this week’s WAUF! Tune in next week for more blogger introductions :-)

‘Til next time :-)

These are not the only ladies I follow, or the only people whose blogs/nails I love. I don’t prefer any one of these blogs over the other because I like them all for different reasons. If you haven’t been contacted (yet), it doesn’t mean I don’t love you! Also: if you don’t have a blog but you have lovely nails, I may be in touch at some point, but I don’t know how to make an entire post about a non-blog right now :-) Finally, please remember that my preferences may be different to yours. This is meant to be a 
fun series! I adhere to the Thumper principle: if you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all. Keep smiling guys and girls :-) 


  1. WAUF??? I doubt there is many people who aren't....and if they aren't, they must be living under a rock :)
