Hi everyone! Thanks so much for joining me on my journey to beautiful nails.
A little bit about me- I’m Melanie, a wife, mom of three and a pharmacist. I don’t really have time for much else, but I stumbled into an obsession almost a year ago in November 2018. A Facebook advertisement for a nail dip powder company, Revel Nail, was on my timeline. I won’t pretend that they’re the best (liquids or powders), but they offered a selection of colors that blew my mind.
Now, keep in mind that I owned maybe five bottles of regular nail polish and a regular polish top coat that was meant to look like gel, but constantly gooped up after a few months (Essie Gel Setter, anyone?). This was uncharted territory for me. I wanted pretty nails, but I also had mom guilt if I did absolutely anything for me when I could be hanging out with my kids, enriching their minds and all that jazz. I saw that starter kit and thought “well that’s less than the cost of one guilt-ridden trip to the nail salon”.
Almost a year, 10+ companies, 4+ liquid companies, 200+ powders and glitters and a foray into gels later, I was invited to test some stuff out and thought WHAT THE HECK, I’m already obsessed. Might as well take it to a new level. Thus is born: THE BLOG. THE INSTAGRAM. THE ONLINE PRESENCE.
Just kidding y’all, I’m nobody. I just want to have pretty nails, like I’m sure you all do. I’ll be bringing you my honest opinions, nail tips and tricks I wish I would have known, fails if I have them (because we all have them, really), and probably a lot of unrelated things. Hope you get some laughs, commiserate and enjoy your stay with a true Nail Dipaholic.
