My name is Karrie. I'm in my mid 30s but still feel like a kid. For example, my tumblr is for Nintendo's "Animal Crossing" game series. My favorite movie ever is Wizard of Oz and I collect anything Wizard of Oz related. If I'm not painting my nails, I'm probably playing a game on Pogo.com (profile).

I'm not married and have no children. I do have a boyfriend of 12 years, Chris. Together, we have a fish named Ginger and two wonderful dogs named Indiana & Wedgie. All rescues. Yes, Chris, too!

I grew up in both Ashland, KY and Wellston, OH. I started painting my nails when I got out of high school. Unfortunately, I found one color that I liked and stuck with it or a variation of it for 15+ years. I was a burgundy polish wearing fool. It wasn't until recently that I branched out and started wearing other colors. I was first introduced to nail art via an article that I cannot find anymore. It was something about fancy nails for any age and the one that caught my eye was a gradient. I love gradients! I want my walls in real life to be gradient! That's what piqued my interest and here we are.

I'm very shy and suffer from anxiety & depression. Please don't expect me to post every single day and be very wordy. I wish I could be like that! If I don't post for a few days, I'm probably feeling "off" and I'll be back soon.

I got the idea for the name of this blog, Never Nude Nails, from one of my favorite TV shows ever: Arrested Development. Tobias Fünke is a "never nude" so he's... never nude. As for the tagline about shorts, I keep my nails short for functionality and I look just silly with longer nails.

So far, everything on this blog has been purchased by me, my fiance, a family member, or won via giveaway/contest from another blogger. Nothing has been provided by a company for free and I receive no compensation.
