Nail collection *In progress*

      Growing up, I had tons of nail polishes. For some reason, I slowly grew out of painting my nails and tossed my polishes. Of course, by now they would've been used up, dried up, but still - thinking back, I wish I would have really dedicated myself to learning about nail care, painting, techniques. Well, better late than never, right?
      So, now I'm on a quest to build my nail polish collection, teach myself how to paint my nails like a pro and all about nail care. Here are a few pics of my current nail arsenal:

I am not too crazy about my current set up, but for now it works. The first picture is an overall view, the next shows my China Glaze crackle polishes and right behind those are various nail tools and stickers. The third picture is just a front shot - most of my polishes are Sally Hansen, especially the Xtreme Wear. Those are my favorites! The last picture is just removers, cuticle cream, nail hardener, top coat, couple strippers and in the bag are various nail things - sponges, qtips, straws, tape, etc.

It's in progress, but here's where I currently am!

Happy New Years!

         So, I wanted to start a new blog for my nail obsession! Over the last year, I've gotten more into nails, nail care, nail art - etc. I was never much good at painting my nails until I just sat down and made myself take my time. Now that I'm good at just painting them I want to learn how to do different nail art designs, from simply polka dots to a full on scene on each nail. One of my biggest obstacles is teaching my left hand to write/draw/paint (designs). I have a few other things to work - not picking off polish when it begins chipping and filing my nails in one direction. Besides tracking my progress, I also want to be able to keep up with nail related blogs I enjoy.

          I'll probably also blog about everyday life. I use to blog somewhat regularly on Xanga, but I don't know what happened there. I guess you have to buy a membership now? Xanga was my favorite blogging site. It was very easy to post and interact with others. I tried Blogger before, as well as LiveJournal, WordPress, and a few others that escape me at the moment. Anyway, so I'm back on Blogger. I doubt this blog with get big, but I do hope to find others to talk polish with :)

God bless,
