My name is Jeanatte and I'm
addicted to nail polish a mommy of three with a passion for nail polish and well, pretty much anything beauty related. Growing up I was the definite tomboy and classic nerd. Mathletes? Check. Didn't own a single dress other than prom? Check. Hang out every weekend at arcades? Check. Collect comics to the point where there's boxes and boxes of them? Check. I definitely wasn't the girly-girl growing up, and while I'd like to think that I'm still a tomboy at heart, I've definitely learned to embraced my feminine side.
My blog mainly focuses on nail polish of all kinds, my more recent emphasis on beauty leans more towards natural and organic products as well as foreign (non-US) brands. My goal? Share what I love in life and showcase it. We're all awesome, we're all unique and we all have something to say.
What is you skin type and what shade are you?
My skin is finicky, so sometimes I never really know what to classify it as. I get oily in my T-zone, normal on my cheeks and dry on my jawline, but my skin is sensitive and gets dehydrated easily. In MAC, I'm NC35, in everything else I'm a medium. However, if there's a light to medium and a dark to medium, I'm a mix of both.
What kind of camera do you use for photos? What is your lighting setup?
I shoot with a Nikon D5300, but previously a D80 and D70. For lighting, I use an Alien Bees B400 and a mix of an umbrella or diffusing sock. You don't need equipment like this to take blog photos, but this is all equipment from when I did music photography.
You mentioned arcades, what games do/did you play? How long have you been gaming?
I've been into competitive fighting games since I was about 15, so about 15+ years is how long I've been into gaming. I guess I answered a bit of the first question, but the easiest way to say it is I play Street Fighter. If you want to see my gaming YouTube channel, you can visit it here or by clicking the YouTube icon in the side bar.
You mentioned mommy. You have kids?
Yep, one boy, two girls. I guess five as I have two furbabies, too. You see them every now and then on the blog. The kids are avid cosplayers and have their own Instagram if you're interested in following their work.
These are the more common questions I get, but if you have any, send me an email and depending on the question, I'll gladly add it to this page!
