Hi from a new addict!

Post  JackieP on Fri Aug 16, 2013 3:39 pm

Hi everyone

I signed up yesterday and after having a browse around thought it would be rude not to introduce myself.  Smile

My name is Jackie, and I am a nail polish addict.  Laughing  I'm married and have a 20yr old daughter.  Not doing anything currently in the way of earning money but I am a very enthusiastic amateur photographer.

Actually I seem to be having a bit of a mid life crisis.  I turn 40 in October, and having never been much of a girly girl (more of a geek, really) I seem to have reignited an old love for nail polish (from my teens) and suddenly started taking skin care a lot more seriously.  I've even been wearing makeup a bit more often.  To balance all of that out though, I also decided to shave my long hair off a couple of months ago, I got sick of washing and styling it, haha!

So, here I am.  I've spent far too much money lately, mostly on Butter London which I love, but the price hurts!  I've just bought 3 A England polishes too, and now have an overwhelming urge to buy them all.  Before this addiction calms I may find myself divorced, lol.

So that's a quick bit about me.  Hope to join in here from time to time.  Smile

Welcome. I'm a newbie to the forum also.

I would have to say I'm not a girly girly either, apart when from when it comes to polish! I don't wear any other make-up Shocked 

I wish I was brave enough to shave off my hair!

Hi Jackiep, Say good bye to any free money you may previously have had, because you will find yourself needing things you never knew existed lol
I recently turned 40, so im understanding the mid life crisis thing hahaha and I also have a 20 year old daughter (and an 18 year old son)

Aww, thank you all so much for the welcomes, that was nice to come back to. Smile

As for the hair - I love it shaved! It's so much easier to deal with and it's taken about half an hour off the time it takes for me to get ready. It doesn't look the best, but I'm ignoring that for now. Laughing It's amazing how fast it grows at this length too, I could do it every week. It's grown a fair bit now and I'm undecided whether to let it grow a bit and have it cut properly or shave it again and get a wig. The latter is very tempting, I really can't be arsed faffing around styling hair anymore. Very Happy
