Welcome to Vampy Varnish, your source for bold nail polish colors and creative manicures. We are excited to continue the legacy started in 2008 by Vampy Varnish founder, Kelly Keeton.

Kelly launched Vampy Varnish from her home in the San Francisco Bay Area. As an early nail blogger, she cultivated a devoted readership for her vibrant lacquer recommendations, swatch-focused reviews, nail art tutorials, and enthusiasm for the latest polish trends. Kelly’s passion and flair for dramatic nail looks established Vampy Varnish as a beloved destination for nail inspiration over the past decade.

You can still find Kelly sharing her current favorite products and manicures on her social media channels, including Vampy Varnish, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, and Google+. Her all-time favorite product remains Too Faced Tinted BB Cream in Vanilla Glow.

After over ten years of chronicling her nail adventures, Kelly decided it was time to pass the torch in 2022. We feel honored to continue Kelly’s vision and high standard of quality content Vampy Varnish readers have come to cherish.

The blog is now owned by longtime Vampy Varnish fan Amanda Smith.
