Moore Swatches: Necessary Evil – Facebook Group Customs, Monthly NERD and Once in a Lifetime


Hey Sugas!!! Today’s post is my 500th Queendom Post!!!! WOOHOO!!!

To be very honest and transparent, I never thought I’d make it this far. There have numerous times I wanted to give up and walk away from the blogger scene but I had to remind myself of my WHY? I absolutely love nail polish and nail art and I have since I was about 16 years old. I started the journey not to “blog” necessarily but to document a journey – my journey, hence the “my nails, my story” tagline. Along the way I have learned many innovative techniques, created new friendships and have had the opportunity to talk about and work with polish. What could be better?

Today I just wanted to take a moment to say THANK YOU!!! In my just over 2 years of blogging, I am writing my 500th post, my blog has over 100k views and 33k visitors. Now to some, that may not be a lot and I respect that, but to me it’s the world. I am truly humbled and honored and I don’t take any of it for granted. I appreciate you all more than you can ever imagine.

I wanted to do something to show my gratitude soooooooo…. on August 15th, Jason, our children and I, started a business – Nema Handcrafted Designs. Currently, we offer 25mm, glass cabochons hand painted with nail polish. These pendants are attached to a 20 inch necklace or keychain. I say all that to say, I will be giving away a necklace or keychain to one lucky winner. And because todays post fell on a Necessary Evil day, the winner will be able to select any Necessary Evil polish featured on my blog to paint their pendant!!! Keep reading for entry rules and visit Nema Handcrafted Designs on FB or IG for more information about our business.

Ok, I know I’ve said A LOT! On to the polish…
