Nail polish was always something that was strictly prohibited in my house―until I turned 16. When my mother finally lifted the ban I went absolutely crazy for metallic nail polish and would paint each fingernail a different shade of Wet N Wild nail polish. I eventually got over my nail polish mania and stayed away from adding colour to my digits with the exception of salon manicures which were very few and far between.

On my quest to be more adventurous with my beauty regimen and to add more colour into my life and my wardrobe I decided to start painting my fingernails again (with a little Twitter nudging from Anita Clarke of I Want I Got). I started off with a coral Revlon nail polish that I had received in a gift bag at an event. Next up was a turquoise polish I bought at Ardene (What? Who can say no to a 2 for $6 deal?). Inspired by Tumblr and feeling a little adventurous I decided to paint an animal print design and with that I was hooked.
Half-moon manis, ladybugs, stripes, polka dots and tribal-esque designs have been added to my repertoire as well as over 20 nail polishes ranging from neon shades to pastel lacquers and metallic polishes.
My name is Septembre Anderson and I am addicted to nail art.
