Hi everyone! I'm a 26 year old living in NYC and enjoying everything this great city has to offer. In May of 2011 I decided to combine my love of writing and my love of writing into my blog, Lacquered Lover! Check it out at www.lacqueredlover.com ! I love being a part of the beauty world and certainly never thought I'd get to share my love of lacquer with the world! I can't wait to show you all some of my favorite nail art tricks!
