about this blog:

i started blogging two years ago, keeping a small personal blog chronicling my misadventures with trying to stop biting my nails. i managed to kick the habit, and i’ve been keeping a blog ever since.

my blog has gone through a few reincarnations from whiskey nails, reflecting a short-lived obsession with trying to coordinate the handles of all my different social media platforms, to ampersands and nails, reflecting a still-present preoccupation with all things punctuation, to model nails, reflecting my growing interest and study of fashion, to this, the model nail files.

i consider this my more formal blog. to check out some of my original designs, along with other nail art projects, check out my tumblr or my facebook, below.
