Hello all! I’m a country girl, raised on hunting and playing in the mud, so it came as a complete surprise to me to discover that I actually like painting my nails. It’s a fairly recent development, starting at around the same time that I started an MA program at a UK university (fall 2012). So, ironically, as I chose to start trying to take care of my nails–and it took moving to a different country for THAT to happen–I also chose to dedicate my life to playing in the dirt. Yes, that means I studied archaeology, and am actually starting my PhD work in fall 2014.
I’m also a HUGE nerd. Quite a bit of my nail art will probably be based on things like Star Wars, Doctor Who, Marvel comics/movies, and, of course, Star Trek. Not gonna apologize for that. Ever.
As far as my skills with nail art go, they’re fairly basic. But I’m not aiming to be be a professional, so it’s okay that I’m still pretty much a beginner. This blog is purely my attempt to find something to do with all of the pictures I take of my manis, but I have every intention of taking the endeavor seriously.
