Hello nail polish world. I've had a pretty extensive following on my personal Facebook regarding my nail art, so the need to branch out to other media was apparent and necessary.
I've replaced part of my own personal Facebook nail-polish related posts here: Gawkish Polish Facebook where I will post all of my wonderful swatches and nail art. Here's a little about yours truly:
My name is April, and I live in the Quad Cities in Iowa. For those of you that I haven't blackmailed into following my blog, we're located right on the "nose" of Iowa, on the Mississippi River. I love a good local craft beer, riding my bike or running, and of course painting my nails. I was a nail biter for as long as I can remember, and one day, I was like, April- you are a professional woman, you need to have professional hands. So I got fake nails, and I wore them for about 8 months to break my biting habit. After that, it was up to me... sure, I still chew on them every once in awhile, but it's never been like it used to be. However, when we go to the movies, I have to take about 3 straws with me to chomp on otherwise my nails would be down to their stubs.
I have been married to my husband for 12 years now, and we live in a haunted house with our lovely cat Belou, a fantastic chocolate lab Brinley, and a very naughty labradoodle named Zooey. I work at a local casino where I am in charge of the event and conference planning there. (it's the best job ever). I do a lot of social and community work for our area, so I'm one of the busiest people you will ever know. Somehow I find the time to do my nails 2-3 times a week.
The goal here is to share my art with the world. In our little community I'm the crazy nail girl, so I hope that by seeing what I do, others will see that it's so fun and an amazing way to express yourself.
Feel free to reach out to me at any given time. Currently all my polish is purchased by me, but I hope that will change with polish companies wanting me to review their products. Here's what I can promise you: a silly blog with some Iowa Hawkeye loving, doughnut baking, dog yelling and occasional nail painting fun.
Thanks for checking in and keep in touch.
