Introducing McPolish!

Well Hello!

Let me introduce myself, I'm Amy McG aka McPolish.  And I am so very excited to be joining Rebecca with this wonderful blog.  I started following PolishEtc about a year ago when I started my nail polish obsession.   It all started with a bottle of magnetic polish by Sally Hansen.  I had to know if there were other polishes like this. which led me to the world of nail blogs.  Holy moly!  Needless to say, I was hooked and was constantly scoping out the beauty section of every grocery and drug store.  I have hardly gone a day without polish on my nails since October 2012!.  

In March 2013, I broke down and made my first Instagram account so I could share my nails with people and my real life friends and family wouldn't know about my obsession.  Haha!  It's true, I was trying to hide it back then.  I very quickly got sucked into the never ending world of nail art and indie polish.  I have shared all of my nail art adventures and first tries on my Instagram account, so feel free to peruse it at your leisure.  Currently, I am attempting to do more stamping and advanced/reversed stamping.  I am not adept at hand painting, so stamping lets me wear more intricate designs.  My go-to, easy nail art is the jelly sandwich.  I love jelly polish!

Here are some examples of my nail art adventures!

And because I am an indie polish lover, I do my fare share of swatching and ogling over beautiful handmade polish babies.  I actually have an indie polish named after me, for my love of grey jellies with pink glitter!  Here is a sample of my swatches featuring the "McPolish hand pose".

Well...I hope you will be happy with my contributions to this lovely blog.  I am just tickled pink to be here with Rebecca and to share this experience with my bestie Amy and good friend Gari.  I know you will love them both :)  Let me know if you would like to see anything specific from me and be sure to follow me on Instagram!
