The internet is full of nail blogs, and yet here I am throwing another one into the mix. Why? Why not! Here’s a bit of an intro about me and why I’m here.
I used to be a strictly nude nail kinda gal, only painting my nails for special occasions or if my best friend (and fellow polish addict) would force me to (while watching bad reality TV, naturally.)
It wasn’t until I started seeing all these amazing tutorials all over the place that my interest was peeked. My first foray into the world of nail art was the always gorgeous galaxy nails (which as a Doctor Who fan I of course had to try), and when my shaky hands actually yielded decent results, I was shocked at how good it felt. That was it, I was hooked! I scoured the internet for more tutorials of designs I thought I could handle, and eventually the designs I was able to execute got better and more intricate.
Nail art has become a main form of stress relief for me, as well as a creative outlet. I realized a lot of my friends were always curious what I’d be doing next or asking to me teach them how to do a design. Strangers on the subway would strike up a conversation about my nails. I love discussing brands and colors, techniques and ideas. The design options are endless, and even though my shit is by no means professional, I love the feeling of a fresh design and hell sometimes I’d like to show it off!
So here it is, my little corner of the internet dedicated to nail art. Thanks for taking the time to take a look around. Let’s chat and be friends, yeah?
Editor’s note: Since this blog is brand spankin’ new, I’ll be posting a few oldies from my instagram collection just to fill this baby in while I work on cultivating some new posts and designs!
