Introducing... Nail Newscast

Exciting news, guys! Tia (of Iced Lacquer) and I are teaming up to create a podcast!

Nail Newscast was Tia's brainchild and is something she's been thinking about for a while. She and I connected over our love of WingDust polish and she was kind enough to approach me about being a co-host! Awesome, right?! I have to admit, in the very beginning I was *thisclose* to saying no. "I'm awkward and strange and try too hard to be funny," I thought. "My voice sounds weird in recordings," I thought. And then I said to myself, "self, WTF are you thinking? Say yes! It will be awesome and fun and what's the worst that could happen? So you push yourself out of your comfort zone. Isn't that a good thing?" So, yes it was.

Tia and I have had fun brainstorming and Skyping and coming up with lists of people we'd love to interview. We've tried to get over our inherent introvert and just put out a quality product.

We recorded a little introduction to Nail Newscast - a teaser trailer, if you will - and now we are releasing it to the wild. To listen to our (hopefully not super awkward) intro, head over to the Nail Newscast blog. (BTW, that was my first test with my new headset - hope to get better sound quality as time goes on.)

I hope you are as excited about this as we are and I sincerely hope that you tune in every Wednesday for the latest in the nail polish world.

Who are we?
We are Nail Newscast. We are a team of nail polish bloggers who wanted to create a podcast all about nail polish. Our team currently includes Tia from Iced Lacquer and Courtney from Swatcher, Polish-Ranger.

What are we?
The Nail Newscast podcast is all about upcoming nail polish collections, sales, trends, interviews with indie polish makers and other bloggers, and general nail polish news.

Why did we make this?
A nail polish podcast is definitely something that doesn't exist yet. We felt like there is definitely a lot of great content out there that people are interested in, we're just putting it in a new format that's easy to listen to!
When can you listen?
As of right now we are planning to release our first episode on Wednesday, August 6th.
Where can you find the episodes?
For now we'll be hosting each episode on our Soundcloud account. We will also have an embedded player for each episode on this blog as well as an RSS feed you can subscribe to. Feel free to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, and Bloglovin for additional content and updates!


  1. I have a question for the podcast! Can you explain how top coats effect holo polishes? I have heard different answers and I am really curious if a top coat dulls the holo or intensifies it! Ahhhh, this is so exciting! You're going to have a blast!!

    1. Thanks, Rachel! This is a question that requires more research so we will try to include it in a future show. :)

  2. This is so awesome! I cannot wait to hear more episodes. Adding you to my blog list now.
