Hi! I'm Holly, aka Miss Holly Berries on social media platforms.  I'm a horror movie enthusiast, peanut butter addict, YouTuber and nail polish lover.  When I'm not swatching or making videos, I'm working my day job as an attorney in Cleveland, Ohio.  Aside from work and YouTube, I love reading, hiking, cuddling my fur babies and hanging out with friends and family.  I got into nail polish as a stress reliever and creative outlet and I'm amazed every day about the beauty and kindness of the people in this industry.  Thank you for sharing in my passion!
