Musings of an Addict

Welcome my dear fellow addicted fiends!
I have been a nail polish addict for about 2 years now and I just looooooove every minute of it *satisfiedgrin*
I am traveling all over the world, always in search of new colors or finishes that catch my spoiled eye. Did you ever get weird looks when you were asking the concierge of a hotel, where you could buy some nail polish close by? Well, I got those looks numerous times, I lost count...hehe
A few more words about me:
I live in a suburb of Munich, Germany (yes, I know, Octoberfest, beer and Humpa Music) together with my husband and 2 crazy cats. So far, I own about 180 different Nail Polishes, count rising, of course *evilgrin*

Why do I write this blog in english, even though, it is not my native language?

Well, I just figuered it is just way easier to post everything in english, instead of doing all my posts in german and, if someone asks, to translate some of the posts into english. Otherwise, if you have trouble with some of the english posts you can just go ahead and contact me in german, no Prob :-)

Charis - where does the nick come from?
So, smart Wikipedia says:
...In Greek mythology, a Charis (Χάρις) is one of several Charites (Χάριτες; Greek: "Graces"), goddesses of charm, beauty, nature, human creativity and fertility. They ordinarily numbered three, from youngest to oldest: Aglaea ("Beauty"), Euphrosyne ("Mirth"), and Thalia ("Good Cheer"). In Roman mythology they were known as the Gratiae, the "Graces."
The Charites were usually considered the daughters of Zeus and Eurynome, though they were also said to be daughters of Dionysus and Aphrodite or of Helios and the naiad Aegle. Homer wrote that they were part of the retinue of Aphrodite. The Charites were also associated with the underworld and the Eleusinian Mysteries.


So basically, I have grace, charm, beauty and creativity (I will skip nature and fertility hehe) all combined in one nick, how nifty is that? *grin*

But on to more important things...
I will try to keep this blog updated at least once a week, daily is impossible, as I do actually have a job that keeps my away from home quite often *sob* but no fear, better some pics once a week, than no pics at all...

So that's it for now, hope to see you guys back here soon :-)
