About Me

PolishGalore is written and maintained by Krystal Emery with some help from my friends.  :]  I'm 31 years young, live in South Texas and have a love for glitter.

I graduated from Texas A&M University - Kingsville with a Bachelor of Arts: Communications - Speech (Radio - TV) degree. Since then, I've worked for SGN Gaming as a Customer Service Lead (social media emphasis), Y Communications & Consulting as a Social Media Strategy & Development Manager, and now currently work in Marketing.

I am not a professional nail tech or have any formal training in nail care.  I'm only a nail polish addict and any reviews that are made on this blog are only from my opinion unless stated otherwise.

I work with public relation firms and companies directly to review nail polish lacquers, treatments, nail art tools and nail care items. Any posts that have product provided by a firm or company will clearly be labeled as a "Press Sample". Other labels may include "Sponsored" or "Paid Post". All others that have been purchased by me will be labeled with "Nothing to Disclose."

I use Adobe Photoshop (Cloud) to edit my photos.

PolishGalore started in December 2009, after chatting with fellow blogger Jen from FromHeadToToe about the holographic China Glaze collection "OMG!".  From there, I saw blogging as a good way to justify all the nail polish I was buying.

If you have a product you'd like reviewed, want to sponsor a giveaway or are interested in advertising on PolishGalore, please contact krystal@polishgalore.com Please keep all PR pitches related to nail polish only.
