ehmkay nails has been in the works for quite some time! First I'll give you the short version of me: I'm from the NYC area and I recently graduated with my MA in Literature. I fell in love with nail polish about a year ago, so books and nails are my loves (among other things)! While completing my Masters degree, I did my nails as my way to relax while finishing my thesis. I started buying more colors and doing more intricate nail art designs and layering combos. Eventually, I would take pictures and show it to my friends.
Well the better half of ehmkay nails has been supporting me for a while and begged me to start my blog which I am entirely thankful for! I was also invited into some polish groups on Facebook where they also encouraged my blog adventures! I hope you give me time to experiment with picture taking and join me on my ever evolving blog. And I hope you don't mind if I show you some older nail art as it was this art that really pushed me into the nail polish community.
In coordination with my blog, I am opening up an Etsy shop, ehmkay designs, which I hope you will take a gander at! I have been playing around with layering combinations for over a year and eventually would layer 10 polishes, which is way too much for my nails! My solution: nail polish jewelry! I think my pieces are different from other stores, so do take a look! I will link the store as soon as it is ready (let's hope for this week)!
NOW ONTO THE POLISH! A milestone birthday of mine was last week, and I thought what better way to begin my 25th year than with CUPCAKE NAILS (and a blog and Etsy store)! First photo is indoors. The next two are in direct sunlight in NYC as I ran around in my polka dot dress enjoying my day.
I thought they were festive and fun and on principle I took pictures with some Crumbs cupcakes but they are so massive I couldn't exactly get my hand around it. I do have embarrassing photos of me eating the cupcake, if you're interested in those kind of embarrassing photos.
I do hope you come back to my little blog to see more nail art and combos! I promise I won't hammer on about me! I hope to show you my most meaningful nail art designs this week as a little introduction to who I am!
