Black Cat Nails is a personal blog run and edited by me, Arden Lux. The content here is just a matter of my opinion. I am NOT a professional nail technician nor am I certified or licensed in any other way related to nails or beauty. I do not claim to be nor make an effort to be an expert on a certain topic, product or service. I am just a nail art hobbyist and enthusiast who wants to share my art, experience, opinions, and research with the online nail art community.

I do research on all advice I offer, but because body chemistry and tastes are different, what works for me may not work for you. Any product claims, statistic, quote or other representation about a product, service, website, etc., should be verified with the manufacturer or provider as what I have referenced may become out of date or change. However, at the time of posting I try to do everything I can to ensure a complete and accurate post based on my experience and research.
