After much big talk of starting a nail blog to friends and family, I have finally decided to go ahead and do it! Hopefully I will be able to keep up with it, and find some people that are interested to see what I have to offer on nails and nail art. So if you are reading this, hello and thanks so much for stopping by!
As a bit of an introduction, I will say that I am a big nail biter, and have been since as long as I can remember. And I don't just chew on my nails a bit - I bite them all the way down to nubs. When I was younger they used to bleed often because I would bite them down so far. As I grew up, I realized one of the only ways I could keep myself from chomping on them was to keep them polished. And the polish had to be nearly perfect, or I would pick off the rest of the polish and then chew the nail. Sad, I know. But this led me to because somewhat polish-crazy, and lately that necessity has turned into a true nail polish hobby. I now find myself reading all of the latest blogs, knowing way more than I ever thought I would about the different brands and terms, and also being introduced to Konad about two weeks or so ago. It has been a lot of fun! And so far, so good - I have not bitten my nails in over a month and hope I can keep that streak going!
I am also an MD/PhD student, and have finished my first two years of medical school and just began my first year of graduate school. My husband is also in the same program that I am in, and we both hope to be done with the program in five years to become full-time physician scientists! The title for my blog was inspired by our love of science - it was actually my husband who first suggested the use of the ending "-ology" for the blog.
I have two Bengal cats, Leo and Luna, who are my babies and I absolutely adore, so don't be surprised if they make their way into this blog from time to time. I also have two gerbils, Navi and Ciela. I have two sisters, a younger one that lives practically down the street and an older one that lives too far away. My parents, my in-laws, and several members of my extended family all live nearby as well.
I think that should just about do for initial introductions, I hope you enjoy my blog! I will plan on getting my first actually polish post up tomorrow - I will be showing off the Orly Cosmic Fx Space Cadet that I am wearing now. It is stunning!
