Why, Hello "Glistening Snow"...

I've been searching for you forever.  At last, I've found you and have you all to myself.  

Yes.  I bought two.  
They need company to avoid loneliness.

Shimmery glisteny fabulousness.

Hello? Hello? Is this thing on?

This past week was a tough one.  I was a hot mess because of back pain.  I missed 4 days of work.  Yet, despite all of my pain, there was one thing that made me very happy.  That thing was nail polish.

I had plans to start a blog a while ago, but I thought, "Who the hell am I kidding?"  I'm not a qualified beauty blogger by any means.  I don't know all of the terms, I don't know half of the brands out there, and I don't have time to dedicate myself to consistently testing and reviewing the cosmetics I buy for myself.  But there are two things I do consistently...I take pictures and I polish my nails.  

In fact, I take so many pictures that I look like an insane tourist.  And my love affair with nail polish is so strong that I've been known to change my polish so that it coordinates with the outfit I'm wearing on any given day.

There aren't many people who are entertained by my manicures and I feel like a loon shoving my hands in the faces of family members and unsuspecting co-workers.  I found a great outlet for my manicure mania on Instagram.  I had no idea that there was such an enormous community of nail polish and nail art enthusiasts!  So I started taking pictures of my manicures with my Canon Rebel 4 and posting them on IG.  Slowly but surely my audience is growing and I'm so happy that I could dance around in little circles.

I decided to share my love for lacquer in blog form, as well.  Nice, BIG pictures of my fingertips and a little bit of my crazy commentary to go along with them (plus it's much easier to type on a full sized keyboard than it is on a b.s. iPhone keyboard).  

So here's a few pics to get things moving...

weird name that I can't remember at the moment.
