Updated 14 June 2013: I’ve moved and am now living in New Hampshire. I’m still working on my novel (way harder than I thought it would be). I’ve learned a lot about nail polish and nail art and am hoping to continue to learn and post pretty pictures. Thanks for reading!
Posted 10 March 2012: Nail Notes is for tracking my own personal learning experience with nail polish. As I learn about the different brands, colors, techniques and tools, I will share all of that with you. My name is Leona and I’m a 40-something writer living in Virginia. I spent 16 years in professional work and last fall decided that I needed to reboot and explore my creative side. I’ve started writing my first novel and learning how to live on a reduced budget. My passion used to be shoes, and while I still love them, I can’t really afford the ones I want. Instead, I’ve discovered that nail polish satisfies my desire to adorn myself with beautiful things and is very affordable! Don’t get me wrong, I’ve always worn nail polish, but the safe muted pink kind one wears to a professional job. I had no idea what I was missing! Incredible colors, holos, glitters, matte, stamping, water marbling, frankenpolish and on and on and on. This will be fun!
