Guest Post: Samantha of Justonemorebottle. "How it all started"
Today I have for you the first guest post in my "How it all started" series. Here is Samantha's story about how justonemorebottle got started.
I have been trying to pinpoint when exactly I started loving nail polish. I have not come up with a specific time frame yet. My mother always had long beautiful nails that she kept painting. So I guess it started as a tiny girl. I remember her buying me Love My Nails brand polish when I behaved well in the store. The display was always close to the register. I would always pick one I didn't already have while she was cashing out.
My introduction to nail art was in late 2010. I got caught at one of the kiosks at the mall. The lady told me "you have nice nails, let me show you something." So, of course, I said "ok", since I was flattered she noticed my nails. $25 later and I now own my own stamping kit. I was terrible at it though at first and quickly gave up. After a while, I went back to it and have been stamping ever since.
As I became more involved with Pinterest, I had more desire to share my nail art. I never took pictures of it before, but all these girls were sharing their work, so why shouldn't I? I would share my photos on Facebook but get very little feedback. My boyfriend then suggested that I start a blog. I went back and forth with the idea for a while. I was worried that the lack of feedback would discourage me. I finally decided to do it. He created justonemorettle.com, and I have been blogging ever since. My first post was July 29th, 2012.
