First Post!

Hello Everyone!!!! Welcome to my first post!  I've been toying with starting a blog for awhile and some of my nail polish friends have been asking me to start one so finally here it is.  
     I've been a nail polish enthusiast for several years but it wasn't until last March that I became polish obsessed.  What put me over the edge??? Simple--stamping!  I got my first set of stamping plates last March and since then I've been non stop!
     While on the hunt for a post I had seen with a mermaid's tail using Nubar's Opulent Pearl I came across this awesome mani by check it out here.

I started out with a glitter gradient as I had seen on flouncyskirts.  I used Sinful Colors All About U, Call U Later, Nail Junkie and because I didn't have Hottie I used OPI Last Friday Night instead.
Because I'm a "stamper" I had to "amp" it up a bit!  I used plate BM 209 and stamped with Sally Hansen Chrome Pen in Turquoise
And because my thumb nail is FINALLY long here's a pic with it included lol!
     So there it is ladies my very first mani for the new year AND my very first mani on my brand spanking new blog!
     I can't say that I'll post daily as most likely I won't, but I do try a new mani every 2 to 3 days.  I hope you'll check back in and see what's new!
     Thanks for visiting and a very Happy New Year to you all!
