As Requested

A Few folks have asked me to start a nail polish blog...and since nail polish has, once again, become a passionate hobby of mine, I thought...well, why not? I have so enjoyed reading the other blogs out there, so I wanted to be a part of that community. I hope everyone will scoot over just a bit and make room in the 15782nd row. Thanks everyone!

I started loving nail polish when I was in high school. I found that, if I just polished my nails, they grew to nice lengths with minimal attention. I LOVED dramatic colors and still do. I was wearing black nail polish WAY before it was the cool thing to do. Oh the looks I got way back when and the comments! "Your hands look like you're dead." LOL. Yeah, whatever. I loved that glossy black!
I was into blues and greens way back then too, (we're talking late 70's here ladies.) I seemed to be the only one.

As I got older, I had less time to sit and wait for my nails to the hobby kind of dissapated to come back in fits and starts and fizzle out again. I'm not exactly sure how I got back into it this time.

Maybe it was the Facebook friend who turned me on to the Nail Polish Collector's group? No, I was well on my way back into the fold...OH! I remember now, I got married! Sept of 2008 I got I started polishing my nails again quite a few months before the big day so I'd have pretty hands for the day. I maintained them for a while and a few broke so I started over...THEN the nail polish collectors group told me about fast drying top coats that really work! OMG!! I can polish my nails a few times a week and get on with my life??? Are you kidding me??? I am in HEAVEN!

So here I am, I've been a Seche Vite user since October of 2009 and already have quite a few pictures to share. I don't have the best of cameras though. I use my htc phone and my little tiny 4 mega pixel snapshot camera to capture the images I'll share.
Some designs were inspired by other blogs that I read, but interpreted in my own way. Others I just flat out copied. :)

I've got some Poshe to try and a ton of untried polishes to go thru yet, thanks to all the other blogs offering me Lemmings to spare! You ladies have cost me a few dollars...and still, I thank you. I'm delighted to be creating wearable art again and being able to live my life too!

I might share other colorful things and I will most likely post up some of my artistic Son's drawings and art. I might even play with some makeup. I'm not a young woman any more, but I am definitely young at heart!

I hope you'll enjoy my creations as much as I enjoy creating them, and I hope to hear from you, either way!


  1. A big welcome and (((hug))). I hope you'll post often and not forget about us. I love reading nail blogs. I have so many to read that they're become overwhelming. I decided tonight to delete many of them. I was reading EmeraldSparkled and saw your blog. I decided why not try another. You do a beautiful job of polishing your nails. Secondly you mentioned wearing colored polish wearing in the late 70's! Yahoo, someone who's around my age. I wore all of those polishes. My greatest loss was getting rid of my StreetWear polishes. Toad was my favorite shade and still is. Only I don't have it. It will be nice to read your blog.

  2. Hi Lucy!
    Thanks for visiting my blog and for all the nice things you've reminded me of! I had a few StreetWears myself..Gunmetal and Blood were favs I remember. I remember Toad, but I don't think I had that one.
    Hehehe, I thought it would be fun to post some stuff and shake up some of the misconceptions about us old ladies. :)
    We were all young once, right? (hugs backatcha!)
