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

Vampy Varnish is a nail polish blog dedicated to showing readers swatches and reviews of the latest collections and brands. I started this blog in September 2008 as a creative outlet to combine my love of makeup, writing and photography. I am proud to say that I am one of the first nail polish bloggers and the longest active nail polish blog in the US.

Fun facts!

– Since I started tracking stats in August 2009, I’ve had over 36 million pageviews.
– I have visitors from 200 countries/territories.
– My first post was published on September 7, 2008.
– I have over 14,000 Twitter followers.
– I have over 24,000 Instagram followers.
– I have over 65,000 Facebook “likes”.

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

My hobbies include reading a ton (books and magazines), watching A LOTĀ of TV & movies, and hanging out at home fantasizing about all the remodeling I want to do to my house, but can’t afford.

Thanks for checking me out!

Hi Kelly – I read your blog back in the day, and loved not. Not sure why I stopped but I’m back.
I was reading your “about” and noticed this sentence:
“The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely the mine.”
Thought you’d want to know.

Thanks for that catch!

Hi Kelly!
I am new to your blog, brought here by a Google search of China Glaze Haute Blooded. I think I will stay awhile.
