About Me


I’m an Aussie girl who just loves to paint her nails. My name is Silvie, and although I’m currently trying to finish my postdoctoral thesis in Physics, I wilfully find way too much time to try out new designs and polishes on my nails. My inspiration comes from the world around me, be it nature on Earth or the universe above. Of course, I’m also inspired by the wonderful nail artists and nail bloggers from all around the world.

I’ve always been interested in nail polish, since I was a little girl and my mum first painted my nails red. I love glitter and pink nail polishes the most. Now with my currently limited student budget, I’ve somehow managed to amass over 200 polishes and it’s still growing! I’ve created this nail blog to review and swatch nail polishes, show case my artwork, improve my writing and photography skills, but to also to prove you can still have fabulous nails on a limited budget. (Or maybe mostly because I’m #procrastanailing from writing my thesis…)

My non-nail loves include baking (especially cupcakes!), reading, photography, astronomy, fashion & jewellery, beauty, growing flowers and food, and eating & cooking food (but mostly the eating part!).

This is my hobby. Welcome to my world. Enjoy my nail art stories and I hope we connect soon ^_^
