Welcome to Vampy Varnish. My name is Kelly and I have been wearing nail polish and makeup since age 13 and I love it!

My life outside of the Internet includes Mr. VV (my husband), my stepdaughter, three crazy cats (two male Maine Coons and a female Tabby) and Parker the Border Collie. You will see my animals featured regularly on my site, as they are a huge part of my life.

When I’m not working on my website, I read a ton (books, blogs and magazines), watch a lot of TV & movies and hang out at home fantasizing about all the remodeling I want to do to my house. Oh I also am a gigantic cupcake fanatic.

You may wonder what my favorite nail polishes are. I have SO many it’s hard to narrow down the list but I will pick my top ten (for now).
