A to Z of Me: Once Bitten

Sunday’s series of A to Z of Me has become popular around the pink vanity. It is fun to share great nail/beauty bloggers, as I know many of us look to find great blogs to follow.

Today’s A to Z of Me is on Kari from Once Bitten Blog. If you don’t already follow Kari’s blog, you’ll want to add it to your list of great ones. Kari’s skills of sharing swatches goes well beyond just that. Her photos are exquisite and spot on to represent the actual color of the polish. As a puppeteer to life-size dinosaurs, she has had the pleasure of traveling and her stories about that are engaging. So you see, her talents as a nail blogger go much deeper.

Here she shares her A to Z of Me:

P. Pet peeve: 

All of my peeves can boil down to one thing – lack of courtesy for/to others.  Whether it’s not using your turn signal, or not giving a polite wave as I let you in or stop to let you cross, not saying ‘thank you’ as I hold the door for you etc….
