So I used to be the world’s worst nail biter…

And now I’m starting a nail polish blog! If you had told me three years ago that I would be doing this, I wouldn’t have believed you for the world. In fact, when my boyfriend found a product that he thought would work to get me to stop biting my nails, I immediately responded with,”Nope! I tried it! It won’t work!” We still joke about that to this day because he was right, and it did work! Of course, a number of other factors combined to help me stop biting my nails besides that, but the point is that it’s pretty amazing that I’m actually starting a blog to write about painting my nails.

It’s not that surprising that I ended up becoming “addicted” to nail polish, really. I put that in quote because, obviously, real addiction is a serious issue after all. That’s what Intervention and Celebrity Rehab is for! Anywho, when I bit my nails I was more obsessed with makeup, specifically eyeshadow. Along the way, I’ve also developed an obsession with necklaces. I love accessories, okay, what girl or good drag queen doesn’t, right? So it’s no wonder that now that I don’t bite my nails anymore I’ve become obsessed with all things polish–colors, brands, trends, what works best, etc. I have to tell you, it was a pretty exciting day when I realized that I was actually reading and paying attention to features on nails in the beauty and fashion magazines that I read!

I’ve also loved to write since I was a kid and had been wanting to start another blog for awhile. So I finally realized that I do have a lot to say about nail polish, and that I should throw my brush in the ring, so to speak, and offer my own thoughts on the subject! So here we are. At Glossy Expectations you can expect to find mostly reviews of nail polish and related products done in a unique style. Follow me on twitter, too, if you like!
