It’s about time, right? Here’s my first mani to show you all. I used Cult Nails Charming as the base color and Konad Special Polish White for the stamping. Stamped with images from Cheeky Summer 2012 CH40 plate.

The picture seem a little wonky because I rotated the original picture so that the stamped images read right side up. Also these photos were taken a few days after I painted my nails, so that’s why there’s some tip wear.

Cult Nails is one of my all time favorite nail polish brands. It’s a small indie company, but by far one of the best brands out there! The formula on these polishes are amazing and the colors fantastically pigmented. With this manicure I used Cult Nails Charming, which is a sheer dusty purple. I used about 3 coats to get opacity.  I really love the “dustiness” to this color. I thought this mani was the perfect many to start off with! What better than a mani representing why I started this blog in the first place!

I love all things arts and crafts related, including (but not limited to) fine arts such as photography, watercolors/chinese brush painting, pastels both oil and soft; fiber arts such as knitting, crocheting, and spinning. I have a few obsessions such as fountain pens, all things steampuck, penguins, and all things nail polish and nail art related! I also have a rare genetic connective tissue disease that affects collagen production in the body called Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS). Having a chronic illness takes up a lot of my time and even feels like it's a full time job just to keep track of everything (Dr's appts, symptoms, meds, etc.). However, it's not my whole life. I started my blogs to showcase my many hobbies as well as bring awareness to rare illnesses.
