About & Contact

Greetings! My name is Chris…

…and I’m a longtime nail polish fiend who runs this beauty blog and a Nail Polish Library.

Nail polish is my passion, lipstick is my weakness, perfume is my vice, I need more eyeshadow like Meryl Streep needs another Oscar, and I’m suddenly realizing that a girl who’s approaching forty probably needs to start paying more attention to skincare.

Meme: I'm so old I can remember going through a whole day without taking a picture. Of anything.

I’ve never been a makeup snob: my collection boasts brands from just about every price point! I always love to try new things. Finding new-to-me brands is the best thing about international travel—next to checking out foreign grocery stores.

Now, some non-makeup stuff about me… I’m a secret American living in Toronto, Canada, with my awesome husband, our little sweeties Peanut and Olive, and my pet fish. We also have some struggling houseplants.

I also blog a little about movies, food, and baby stuff over at julesfifty.com. I could happily live on pizza for the rest of my life (just put some sushi on it sometimes, mm’kay?). I’ll see anything with Idris Elba, Eva Green, or Mads Mikkelsen. I support Toronto FC and Liverpool FC, and maintain a little soccer TV schedule for Canadians. Handbags over shoes, always. And I’ve used Macs for even longer than I’ve used nail polish—Crystal Quest and Scarab of Ra for ever. Today’s computer games with their schmancy graphics just don’t cut it for me, you know?

Finally, if you’re wondering about the origin of fivezero, I am not a cop.

It refers to my height.

Meme: Derek Zoolander, website for ants.

Happy polishing!
—Chris
