About Katie


My love for polish has been life long! It started when I’d bring ziplock bags of polish to swim meets and spend hours between sessions painting my toes outrageous colors. It was renewed again years later when Alli sent me two polishes for my birthday: Midnight in Moscow and Russian Navy. After that there was no turning back! My collection exploded and in November of 2009 we started The Daily Varnish.

If you’d like to keep up with me across the web, check out our social media page! If your curious about my current collection, here’s a link to my stash spreadsheet – it’s always a work in progress.

Happy Polishing,


  1. Stumbled across your blog looking for a search for a color. For curious and took a look at your stash spreadsheet. Very impressive! I do have two suggestions of polishes I didn’t see that I think are must haves (both OPI): Blue My Mind & Mermaid Tears. Mermaid Tears is from the Pirates of Caribbean collection and is discontinued but it’s easily found on amazon or eBay. I got mine on eBay for $9 including shipping. Look forward to reading more of your posts. 🙂

    1. Wow. Typed that on my phone and autocorrect BOTCHED it. Should’ve proofread. I meant “looking for a swatch” and “got curious”.

What do you think?
