About

Hi! I’m Jo, I live in the Midlands in the UK and I’m *whispers* 43 years young..

I love shiny things. There, I’ve said it. I love anything that glitters or shines (even if it’s pink!) – rings, glass, nail polish… especially nail polish! My friends often say that I must have been a magpie in a previous life (usually as I have my nose pressed again the window of the jewellers), hence, the name of this blog.

When I’m not painting my nails or working, you will find me watching Formula 1 or Moto GP (my other half is a petrol head, and it’s rubbed off on me), reading, running, cycling or walking, or drinking obscene quantities of Prosecco with my friends.

This blog is a way of documenting my adventures with nail art. I love to stamp my nails, and have a huge, ever-growing collection of stamping plates, which goes nicely with my huge, ever-growing collection of nail polish! I do try to experiment with other forms of nail art too, I will usually try anything once. Maybe not twice, but definitely once 😉
