Nerd Lacquer Spam!

*Purchased by Me*

Hey there!  I hope you all had a great weekend.  Mine was busy, busy, busy, and I'm not ready for it to be Monday!  On Friday, polish lovers were surprised with an unannounced restock from one of the most allusive makers - Nerd Lacquer.  By the time I found out about the restock, almost everything was sold.  I was able to get one that I'd been checking destrash sales for.  Since I'm really hoping that she's back for good this time, I'm bringing you a few of my favorite Nerds that are based on Star Wars.

Lucky 13 Lacquer: Accio Lacquer

*Purchased by Me*

Hey there! Cooler weather has finally started to make its way to my area, and I am so excited! Fall is my favorite time of the year. The changing of the leaves, going to the mountains to pick up fresh apples, yummy apple cider, and getting to start wearing all of my comfy sweaters!

Today, I have a polish from one of my favorite Indie makers, Lucky 13 Lacquer! This polish, "Accio Lacquer" just reminds me of Fall.

"Fashionably Soft Kitty" nails

*Purchased By Me*

There's finally something good about Mondays! CBS's Big Bang Theory has moved to Monday nights, and tonight was the start of the new season!

What a better way to celebrate the premier of one of my favorite shows but with some "fashionably Soft Kitty" nails!  To create this look I used Maybelline's "Fashionably S-late" and "Sing Soft Kitty" from LynBDesigns.

Welcome to Lacquered Geek!

My first post!  I've been micro-blogging on Facebook and Instagram for a little while now, and I've finally decided to take the plunge into a full blog!

There are so many other blogs out there, so I was hesitant to start one.  You know, trying to find a niche, set myself apart from the rest, etc.

For years and years, I was a nail biter.  Gross habit, I know... but one that was extremely hard to break.  It took several months, lots of latex gloves, and a great deal of self-control to finally break the habit.

Once my nails started growing, I started buying a few bottles of nail polish.  Those few bottles were enough for awhile, until I decided that I wanted to have special nails for my anniversary trip to DisneyWorld.  I wanted super cute nails, and I needed more colors to achieve that! My modest collection from back then has grown by leaps and bounds.

You won't see longer nails on my page - with my job, I cannot have long nails. Shorter nails just work better for me.  But I think that it's important to show the world that shorter nails can look great!

Even though nail polish will be the strongest focus of my blog, you may see posts about my cat, Mr. Bloo, random posts about my life, and possible posts about Doctor Who.

I'm glad that I've taken this first step, and I hope you'll join me on my journey!
