Who am I?
While I would not call myself a nail polish addict, I do have an impressive collection and love to express my mood through my nail color. In addition to being a collector of nail polish, I am also a true lover of lipstick and eye products. I have an incredible stash of eyeliner, eyeshadow, and lipstick. Though I have my favorite stand-by products, I really love to try new and exciting products.
What is this blog all about?
On this blog you will find reviews and musings about nails, eyes, and lips. This reflects my Big Three of Beauty philosophy. You will also find my thoughts on beauty products, trends, and looks, as well as how-to articles and beauty tips. If there is something you would like to see swatched or a question you would like answered, please email me.
What is the Big Three of Beauty philosophy?
I practice what I call the Big Three of Beauty philosophy - focusing on eyes, nails, and lips. If these three parts of my body and face are accentuated, I feel absolutely fabulous. This does not mean that I cake on the eye shadow or always wear an intense lipstick. Rather, if my nails are nicely manicured, my lips are painted, and my eyes have a bit of mascara on them I feel fabulously put together.
What is my general make-up philosophy?
My beauty philosophy is simple: make-up should be fun! It should be an expression of who you are and how you feel. Your beauty tastes will change as you do, and there is nothing wrong with that. Don't be afraid to experiment a little either. There is no right or wrong when it comes to beauty. Your face and nails are a canvas, so paint them!
So what makes The Lacquered Lady different from other beauty blogs?
My beauty philosophy separates me from other bloggers out there, particularly my focus on the Big Three of Beauty. Besides this, I find that make-up simply makes me happy, and I blog for no other reason than to share my passion. I spend most of my professional life doing research or teaching, focusing not on the physical, but the mental. I love how when I turn the page of a book in the archives my painted nails spice up the library. I don't have any tattoos or wild hair color, but I do express myself through make up and nail lacquer. Nothing says "I'm here!" like a glittered thumb! I love color and texture. In my opinion, these are the two most defining elements of beauty and style. You will hear me talk frequently about these two characteristics in my reviews and writings.
