Then and Now Nail Art

A few weeks back I saw some really neat posts pop up about fellow nail bloggers sharing their "Then and Now" nail art. Such a simple idea, yet really shows yourself, and other people, how far you have come with your nail art and photography. So I searched through some of my old nail art pictures and found a manicure I thought would be perfect for this then and now theme.

Below is a manicure, that at the time, I thought was one of my best. I had just started nail art and branching out with different designs. With fun blue and white stripes and beautiful flowers, how could people not love this? Wow, was I a silly girl.

Check out those amazing photography skills I possessed back then. ;) The even crazier thing is that I posted this on my tumblr on September 17th, 2011 and wondered why no one re-posted it. Baha hahahaha!


So much better! Amazing what good lighting, angles and focus can do! I can hardly believe I used the same Orly Gumdrop polish for both manicures. Sometimes when I do my nails I feel like I'm not going to be as good as the more popular nail art bloggers. However seeing this, I feel like I have come a long way, and look forward to seeing my skills grow even more.
