The first nail-focused beauty blog

Lookie… I’m In Glamour Magazine

I’m so over the moon today. This really is a Happy Friday because yours truly is featured in the April edition of Glamour Magazine!! I’m so excited, I don’t even know what to do with myself.

It’s not like I won an Oscar or cured cancer or anything but I feel very very lucky to be recognized by a magazine that I love and respect so much. Especially in their 70th Anniversary Issue featuring the stunning Katie Holmes on the cover (I’m still such a Dawson’s Creek fan).

Kids, I’ve been subscribing to Glamour since high school. It was my first grown up magazine after years of reading Young Miss (aka YM) and Seventeen. So to see my name in Glamour (for the 2nd time) is beyond incredible.

You know that VIP Blogger feature on that I told you about? Well that is the online companion piece to the print version appearing on page 83 of April’s Glamour.

Glamour’s Fiorella Valdesolo asked moi and four of my fellow beauty bloggers to share our favorite beauty tips and she chose her fave from each of us to appear in the mag. I passed along ten or eleven of my best tips and tricks, some of which you’ve seen mentioned here before, and it was my suggestion to use a glass file that made it in the magazine.

Long time readers may remember my article about glass files from when ALU was just a babe but if you haven’t read it, check out Let’s Talk Files for more info and product recommendations, including a fab online source.

Congrats to my fellow blogging babes Amber, Daneen, Julia and Patrice. Special thanks to Daneen for sharing her scan of the article with me while I wait for the Cleveburg to get its April shipment in.

    Hi, I lurk on here. I saw you in there and was so happy for you! Good for blog traffic… I need me one of those files, sounds like time for a trip to Sephora.

    Wondering if you have a favorite base coat? I have ridges and they tend to split… Seche Ridge Filler isn’t that great. I’m using Orly Top 2 Bottom but it’s okay.
