Happy New Year Kids! I hope you all had a fantastic NYE and remembered to eat some good luck foods on New Year’s Day. I know my superstitious self had pork and sauerkraut in hopes that 2009 is my best year yet. I have so many fun ideas for ALU and I hope you’ll stick with me to see them.
Yesterday, January 2nd, was All Lacquered Up’s official two year anniversary and I can’t help but reflect on all the amazing gifts writing this blog has given me. Most importantly, all of you. Your comments and emails mean the world to me. Thank you for coming back, day after day, to share your passion and polish fanaticism with me.
As I look back on 2008, it was such an amazing year in polish. When I made my wish list for the year I had no idea so many of my lacquer dreams would come true. I mean, hello, I’m on GREEN overload thanks to China Glaze, Rescue Beauty Lounge, Barielle, Sally Hansen and OPI.
Not only that but I got to meet a bunch of my fellow bloggers who have become great friends. I had the chance to go backstage at New York Fashion Week. Who would ever have imagined a polish freak like me would get that opportunity? I met nail industry idols like Ji Baek, Jin Soon and Elle and had the pleasure of watching CND’s fashion week team at work. Not to mention getting to meet the ladies of China Glaze. It’s an embarrassment of riches. So much so that I feel greedy making a wish list for this year.
So instead of making wishes, let’s turn this into a Fanatic Feedback. What are your polish wishes and lacquer dreams for 2009? Let’s see what we can make happen together.
FYI, due to the overwhelming response to the Fanatics Favorites Survery, the results and winners announcement is delayed until Monday January 5th. Thanks for your patience
