I've suffered from chronic, pretty severe, eczema for the majority of my life. Thankfully it's toned down a lot, but the remainder of it seems to attack my hands and feet. Who would of thought? A blogger with eczema ridden hands, dedicated to an industry of perfect hands and nails haha. I decided to go on the basis of "not everyone's perfect". I do have this blog to thank though; I've payed more attention to my hands than I ever have! If you go back 2 years you can see a clear difference in my skin.
I've been blogging on Lace & Lacquers since December of 2012. Since then, I've gained a few hundred polishes, an appreciation for bloggers and nail artists, discovered new techniques, learned how to communicate with an audience through social media and my blog, made great friends, and have worked with some awesome indie and mainstream brands. It's been an incredible ride so far. When I started this blog 2+ years ago, I never imagined I would be where I am today with my blog! It STILL amazes me and I don't plan on stopping any time soon ;]
I'm known for being honest, straightforward, and not holding my thoughts back (to an extent LOL!). So if I come off a little brash, I apologize. I'm not for everyone but once people warm up to me I'm not so bad ;] I really STRIVE apply this quality of mine to my blog posts. I want everyone to know that the products in my blog posts are reviewed with the utmost scrutiny to ensure you aren't going to experience something horrible with a product.... Of course I cannot promise identical results from person to person.
I try to blog 5 days a week, leaving my weekends free to come up with ideas and spend time with my husband and crazy dog. I like to keep things on my blog moving with new content to be discovered!
I'm currently flirting with the idea of branching out into doing nail art and manicures alongside my friend who is a makeup artist! So if you're in the San Diego area and need an awesome makeup artist, she's your girl. I'm going to be doing quick polish only manicures, don't be afraid to ask if you need someone. I'm just starting out but I'm fairly confident this will be a new venture :] Hopefully I'll have some professional pictures from a photo shoot soon!
I'm quite active all around the interwebs. If you'd like to follow me, chat with me - don't be shy!
Hope to see you around,
