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!


  1. I'm currently trying to stop biting my nails. It's working ok so far, they are the longest they've ever been but they are still super short. I love seeing swatches on shorties so thabks for taking the plunge!

    1. Thanks! I think more ladies with shorter nails need to start blogging and swatching. Some colors look completely different on longer nails vs. shorter,and there are just so many of us who either prefer shorter nails or have to have them due to their jobs.
