To a New Year...

Today is the 31st of December and the last day of 2017- the blog survived another year. If you don't know, it's been around now for 7 years and 3 months and in that time I gained 602 followers! I've lost a few here and there but if you're still with me, even once in a while, THANK YOU! Without you, I'd just be talking to myself. 

Life just keeps coming and keeps you busy. I still dabble with polish and buy the color shifting pigments when they come out but it the hobby is far less interesting to me today and I have less to contribute. Just about anything you need to start and maintain the hobby, including the "research" are widely available now and easy to find, not so when I started out. But I can still recall the joy and amazement from mixing that first simple bottle of clear polish + pigment and I hope it is something you still experience.

May your 2018 be more sparkly and colorful than this year.
Happy New Years. -M

  3. The best to you in the new year!
    I always enjoy reading your blogs. And want to thank you for taking the time and effort in providing the information here. Many polish makers are very secretive about their experience. I come here often when I need an answer. I only do it as a hobby. But appreciate that you are here to help others. Thank you so much. And I hope you will continue to be here.Best Wishes!

    1. And Merry Christmas and an almost Happy 2019 to you! No worries, the blog and I aren't going anywhere. I know it sorely needs updating but I don't have the same amount of time to invest so thanks for hanging around in spite of that =)
