I just wanted to take a minute and introduce and tell you a little bit about me.
I live in wonderful Las Vegas. I am happily married to my high school sweat heart. I have a 5 year old black lab named Jack. My profile pic is my favorite pic of my "Bestest Baby Dog" Claire. I had to say good bye to her this last spring. She was 13 1/2.
I have only been into doing my own nail art for just over a year. I got into the hobby because, well, I had acrylic tips for years. My nail lady Joanie was awesome!!! I loved all her nail art. She landed up moving away. Amy my next nail lady/friend was awesome too. I really don't know why I stopped getting them done. I think I just grew out of having acrylics done and wanted to let my nails breathe. I let them grow for awhile and they actually grew out stronger than they ever were. All I did was keep them polished to keep them protected. As they grew longer, naturally I had to start putting designs on them. I was hooked.
I have always been the frugal, DIY, crafty type and this fell right into that category. So a few light colored polishes turned into an assortment of colors, which turned into ..... well you know where this story is going LOL
I currently have a nice collection of polishes, gems, glitters, striping tape, stamping plates, the list goes on and on. I can't walk into any store without walking down the nail polish isle to see what they have. Yes.... My name is Valerie and I'm addicted to this hobby LOL.
I hope everyone enjoys this community. I am looking forward to seeing everyone's designs, getting inspired by them, learning and trying some new stuff and making new friends along the way.
