I feel at this point in looking back I was at a high point in my blogging... I was posting fairly regularly, I had a 30 day challenge coming up in September (that I would go on to complete!), I liked my lighting and my pictures, and I was really involved in a variety of nail art challenges.
Hmm... I guess if I'm trying to look at positives now compared to then (for progress reasons) I would say that my macro pictures are better now (they were non-existent then!) and my straight-on pictures are much more clear. So there are pros and cons to both time periods. :)
Check under the cut for a closer look!

This was my fill for the 'Rainbow' prompt for a nail art challenge, and I thought it was funny that it was one I did literally last minute with next to no thought put into it and yet it was one that people really seemed to like! Isn't that always the way? This was super simple to do - apply the base colour, add some top coat, put a line of gems down the middle and BAM! Done.

Ahhhhh Grace! This is my all-time favourite sheer gloss polish. I just adore how it looks on my nails, and it's one that I'm certain I will actually finish the entire bottle of sooner or later. :( That will be a sad day. I really need to start looking around for dupes of this polish - I'm sure there are multiples out there, and maybe if I pick one up I'll be less scared to use this one as often. If you have any suggestions let me know!

Oh my gosh you guys, I hate this picture and this post so much and I'm cringing at actually showing it to you right now... For me my nails in this picture are TOO LONG and it really bothers me! It's all I can focus on, which is really unfortunate since I really like the idea behind this design. :( I need to move on, I can't even say anything else about this look because it's bothering me so much!!

For a very brief period of time I subscribed to the Square Hue boxes. Ultimately I decided they were too pricey with shipping to Canada for three polishes that I might or might not like, but the few boxes I did pick up I enjoyed. This is one of the three polishes I got in my August 2014 box - Cañon Drive. There was also a gorgeous gold and a deep blue in this box, so check out the full post if you want to get a look at them too!
That's it for today's throwback. I'd love to hear your thoughts! :)
