Hello! I’m totally giving you all a Vulcan salute right now, you just can’t see. Well, not there’s anyone to see it right now anyway. I’m hoping that I one day get a handful of followers, but I’m not overly optimistic. I’m still fairly new to the nail art scene (and to having paintable nails at all) and am not very good yet, but I hope to improve in time.
Anyway, my name is Rachel and I am most certainly a nerd. I’m also a tomboyish archaeologist, so it came as a complete surprise to me when I learned that I actually enjoyed not just painting my nails, but doing actual nail art too. Because digging in the dirt totally keeps my nails in good shape, right?
These next few posts are catch-up posts from my first year and a half or so of learning how to work with nail polish. And…confession time. I’ve been a nail biter for most of my life. I seem to have kicked the habit for now, but when I first started out I had no nails and so painted and wore fake ones. So you’ll see a lot of those in these first posts. And maybe will in the future too. Who knows?
If anyone feels inclined to offer up comments or just say hello, please do so! It’s always nice to know you’re not talking to thin air. 🙂
