About the Author and this Blog

The Gnarly Gnails blog was started in January 2012 when I had just started what would later become a massive obsession with painting my nails.  Cut to 2017. I blogged for 2 and a half years, then I stopped. Why?
Well...I was getting burnt out on the hours it takes to run a semi-successful blog, mixed with depression and trying to find new interests to make me happy since doing my nails was no longer enough.

It took a few years and a few hundred miles to make change.  I had to get the courage to leave a bad living situation and relationship that had left me empty and alone.  I moved back to South Carolina, made new friends and got back in touch with old ones, went back to work and fell in love.  

I'm currently living with my boyfriend and our dog Lexi, and am going to do my best to blog as much as I can between being a dog mom, a girlfriend and a gainfully employed grown up.

I've decided since my interests have grown that my blog shall as well. This will be more of a lifestyle blog with an emphasis on beauty.  I plan on continuing nails and nail art, but will also blog makeup and food and possibly some fashion and fitness here and there.

Thanks for coming back or joining the crew, glad to have you either way!
