I'm thrilled to bring you this week's First Look Fridays interview with the lovely Krystal Emery of the beauty blog Polish Galore. If you're looking for impeccable nail polish swatches and honest, well-written reviews, this should be a must on your blog reader. Read on to find out how Krystal first became interested in nail polish, the cuticle oil she can't live without and so much more.

Can you tell me a bit about yourself?
I live in South Texas. I'm a 2nd generation Javelina, graduated with a degree in Radio & TV from Texas A&M University-Kingsville (sister school of the Aggies).

How did you first become interested in beauty, and what led you to create your own blog?
I've always loved nail polish -- I had a small collection in high school and college but didn't go full blown until 2009 after I found the China Glaze OMG! Collection. I have a YouTube blogger friend (From Head To Toe) who told me that I should start a blog to justify all my purchases and the rest is history.

I love the name of your blog! How did you come up with it?
I originally was going to name my blog "China Glaze Galore" because I had quickly purchased over 50 China Glaze polishes in a short period of time, but thankfully after some consideration, I decided on Polish Galore because I definitely have a LOT of nail polish.

What are your top 5 favorite beauty products?

What are your top 3 beauty tips?
1) Never go without base coat, even if it's the only thing on your nails.

2) Never use your nails as tools.

3) Always use cuticle oil, balm, cream, et cetera to keep your cuticles and skin moisturized and soft.

Being a blogger must be fun, but what do you do in your spare time?
I also cross-stitch.

In addition to your blog, how can The Beauty of Life readers find you on social media?
You can find me on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and Twitter.
