I am an American by blood, but my heart is Filipino. I was born and raised in Cebu and am fluent in the local dialect as well.
The early signs of my polish addiction began when I was in my teens and had a tackle box containing my precious collection of polishes. I would use toothpicks and dot flowers onto my nails and paint every nail a different color. I don’t remember why, but by the time I was 20, I had stopped doing my nails almost entirely.
I got back into the habit of doing my nails after my daughter was born in 2011. After two kids, I needed a little “me time” and Mr. Nailinator offered to watch the kids so I could do my nails now and again. I learned a lot from the interwebz, and while searching for more manicure tips, I happened upon a lot of cool nail art blogs and tutorials. A few polkadots and stripes later, and I was hooked. I’m not a very flamboyant person but apparently my nails are, so my family and friends encouraged me to start my own blog to share my nail art with the world and so here it is. This is the very first nail blog in Cebu City to boot! Woohoo!
