My name is Allyson and I’ll be your host here at The Lacquer Diaries.  I’m glad you stopped by!

This blog is the brainchild of both myself and my lovely friend Sarah.  It began as a result of our love for nail polish.. a love that, for me, started in my early teens and is still going strong today (if you were to look at my stash, you may even be tempted to call it an obsession).  Nail polish has always been one of my outlets for creativity and a way to express my personal style.  I’d long wanted a place to round up my thoughts on different polishes along with swatch pictures, and I figured if I could do that while sharing with fellow lacquer lovers… all the better!

Over the years, The Lacquer Diaries has evolved to cover variety of topics.  Nail polish will always be the blog’s core, but you’ll also see posts regarding subscription boxes (currently Birchbox and Ipsy), product reviews, and other randomness.



I’m in my early 30s and live in South Carolina with my SO and our daughter.  In addition to my polish hobby, I’m also into photography, gaming (PC and console), and listening to entirely too much music.



Thank you for taking the time to check out The Lacquer Diaries!
