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".

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!
