Confessions of an Unrepentant Nail Polish Geek
I've loved nail polish since the tender age of 5.My teenage, (and therefore,cooler) cousin Kerri decided that she'd give my(then) stubby nails a coat of polish.When I saw the finished product I was hooked.From that day on,I have been an avid nail polish collector.I've been blessed with thick,strong, natural nails that,if left alone,can grow about 2 inches long.They are well-shaped and rarely-if ever-without polish.Until last week thought I was the only one who felt naked without my nailpolish. I was google-ing OPI's La Boheme(my discontinued fave of all-time)looking for sites to order it from,when I clicked on a random nail polish blog by accident (or was it fate?) I was so relieved to find out that I wasn't alone in my love for nail lacquer!I found a whole community of people who felt the same way I did! So I've spent the past week looking at swatches,reading reviews on different nailblogs and I must say I am impressed by all of them-epecially the ones with nail-art (I sooo do not have the patience for that!).I've added to my already long wish list of colours based entirely on swatches I've seen,and I have found an entire community of polish-addict enablers (much like my bibliophile coworkers).I can say without shame that there is no such thing as too much nailpolish.Thank-you lacquer-heads for helping me realize it.
