This blog serves as my creative outlet while I work on my PhD. I am a graduate student in the History of Art and Architecture of the Middle Ages (okay, extra creative outlet). My great love of shiny things transfers from the art I study (oh yeah, Byzantine art- go for the gold!) over to nail polish. To fulfill my desire for greater glory (I came, I saw, I painted my nails), I decided to start a blog to showcase my feeble talents. Also because I’m fairly sure that no one I know wants to hear about the difference between scattered holo and linear holo again.
