25 Days of Bloggers - How They Were Chosen

Hi Goddesses

Are you ready, we're nearly ready.  It's nearly time to be ready!!!

25 Days of Bloggers will start tomorrow.  As I usually do, I just wanted to explain a little bit about the science of putting the list together, as I think there will be some omissions that will surprise you.

The first thing is, There Had To Be A Blog, so no place in list for IG Goddesses

Madam Luck
Mrs Lochness

Are they my FAVOURITE 25 nail blogs?  Not quite.  One of the criteria I was really strict about was regular content.  A lot of bloggers who I love have posted more sporadically this year, which is why there is no place in my 25 for -

Chalkboard Nails
One Nail To Rule Them All
Brit Nails
work play polish

Now, if I were choosing my absolute favourite 25, all 4 of those ladies would be in there, but .....

There's also hardly any swatchers in this 25.   Some, but only a handful.  I tend to find when I've seen a couple of swatches of a new polish, I've seen enough, so I don't go out looking for MORE swatches of that polish.   I've picked my go-to swatch blogs, but other awesome swatch blogs you'll want to consider include -

Accio Lacquer
Fashion Polish
Tunay Na Mahal

And finally .... the casualties.  This year seems to have been tough on our bloggers, and more than ever have either stopped blogging .. or taken an extended leave of absence.  A LOT of these have been my dearest friends, and whilst I would usually SNATCH the chance to read their latest blog post, that's why you won't see these awesome blogs in the list -

Gnarly Gnails (I miss my Missy so)
Let Them Have Polish
Manicurity - AWOL since September
Smashley Sparkles
Manicurator (although Vic has now started posted again - whoopee)

So, enjoy my 25 picks for you.  They post regular, quality content.  Some of them are way too cool for school and scare me with their brilliance; some of them have made patterns an art form, and others have the ability to make anything look simple, even if it isn't.

I love each blog I'm going to show you - I hope you find some new inspiration along the way :)
