I finally joined!

Post  geekybat on Tue Aug 06, 2013 5:00 pm

Hey all,

I've been lurking for a while. Found this place via Sally Magpies after several purchases Shocked 

I've been wearing nail polish since I was 10 (early 30s now) and had a fairly moderate collection until about 4 years ago. Though my hubby would probably say it wasn't moderate.

I don't have an artistic brain and never tried any sort of nail art. Putting a top coat or stickers on is about as arty as I get.

I started one blog [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] in June 2011, basically anything under a fiver as I had been checking out a lot of blogs and noticed there weren't any for the lower end polishes. I soon realised that I wasn't wearing any of the more expensive polishes so started another blog in July 2011 for [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].

It is an interest and obsession Rolling Eyes. I'm lucky enough to be blessed with strong nails that grow at an alarming rate. I guess you could say it's my thang! I moved house recently and was shocked to find that my whole make-up collection minus polish stuff could fit into a small tub, about the size of 1kg marg tub, I'm just not into anything else in the make-up world.

I'm also lactose intolerant, but that has nothing to do with nail polish - just a random fact about me tongue

Hi Geekybat !

Just wanted to say Welcome !
And also that I've just taken a look at your 'Posh Polishes' blog - and it's fab !
If I had a couple more hours in the day and had a computer which wasn't my work one - and could actually be bothered to do a blog (I'm sooo lazy), it would be like yours - with a ratings scale - so cool !! Very Happy

Thanks! Yeah was quite impressed how it looked in the sunshine. Wasn't that fussed with the other polishes in the range, looked like others I have.

And thanks again to everyone else Very Happy
