Lacquerized. A blog about nail polish

About me


My name is Michèle. I am 27 years old and I live close to Amsterdam, The Netherlands. This year I finally received my Bachelor degree, leaving more time for fun things like blogging about nail polish. Blogging is not the only thing I occupy myself with, I'm also working as a Senior Front End Web Developer. This means that I am able to convert just about any design into a working website! From time to time I also like designing websites. So yes, I am kind of nerdy ;-)

My love for nail polish quickly began after I stopped biting my nails. That compulsive habit was hard to break, but I am so glad I did! As a young girl I was already infatuated with my mothers nail polish (In fact, she has a blog about nail polish too! Please take a look: Romika's Nails). Ever since then the never ending array of colors has been a shining beacon in my life.

I really pour my heart into this blog, and I hope that you will enjoy reading it as much as I do writing it. At the moment I try to update at least three times a week. I wish I could do more, but as we all know... quantity is no substitute for quality. Enjoy!
