Throwback Thursday (Vol 7)

by - Thursday, June 11, 2015

Happy Thursday! Today I have a look back at some swatches and art from this time last year. I really like a lot of the looks I'm re-sharing this week, and I'd really love to hear which of them is your favourite (and if you remember any of them)!

Last year I had a wonderfully relaxing trip to Cuba around this time (oh the memories!) and decided to swatch two Resort Collections while I was there. Swatching Resort Collections on the resort! Love it! This lovely is Julep Lani from Julep's Resort Collection, and I also swatched Essie's 2014 Resort Collection while I was there (which you can see here).

I'm still in love with this mani, and it's the one that a lot of my friends in real life still remember (and talk about)! I got these cute Hello Kitty heads in a Mystery Bag from Born Pretty Store and thought this was a fun and playful way to use them. They're a bit too big to wear around in real life (for me at least!) but they're still cute to look at.

The first time I heard of cocktail nails was when I did this mani fill for a nail art challenge (that I don't think runs anymore unfortunately). It's when you do accent nails on your thumb and first two fingers (the ones you would hold a cocktail glass with) that are more jazzed up then the rest of your nails. I used all Julep polishes here - see the original post to find out which ones. :)

Textured polishes are a weakness of mine, and the bright and fun shades that came out in the Nicole by OPI Roughles called to me when I saw them. I only picked up a few shades but this one (Sand in My Shoe) was the first and it's begging to be used in a beach-y mani later this summer.

I don't really know what was on my mind when I put this look together - I think I just wanted to play around with my new polish from Forever 21. I was surprised at how pigmented they were! I haven't picked up any more since (or used the ones I did pick up) but I always think it's fun to try new shop brands.

And that's it for today! Let me know in the comments which look you like the best! :)

Thanks for visiting! xx
