About Me















I am a 23-year-old Kinesiologist from Wabush, Labrador (Canada). I completed my BKin Hons. (co-op) at Memorial University in St. John's, Newfoundland. I am currently working on my Masters in Physiotherapy at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia. 

My obsession with nail polish started in high school after I stopped biting my nails. I painted them a different color every day (usually in the evenings while watching tv). When I started my degree at MUN I swam for the varsity team so there was limited time to focus on my nails, and polish often chipped when in the pool. Since "retiring" from swimming in 2011 I've had more time to spend on my nails. My nail art started out very simple with stripers and toothpicks, but it soon grew into a major obsession... 

Sammy at www.thenailasaurus.com was my initial inspiration. I stumbled upon her 12 days of christmas nails in December 2011, and from there was introduced into this amazing world of nail art. From then on I started collecting nail art tools and stamping plates... I picked up on proper nail care and (most importantly) mess-free polish application. I joined the blogging community on February 13, 2012.

All of the nail designs you see are my own unless otherwise stated. If my idea comes from another blogger I will of course give credit. 

I enjoy reading daily nail art blogs and if I can get just one person interested in reading mine, then I will be happy.

Final note: As I mentioned above, I am a student, so all of my nail designs are possible for those of you (like me) who are on a limited budget.
