Oh MAN it's been a long time since we've had one of these! I'm almost at the point where when I look back to my art and pictures from a year ago I'm not embarrassed about the quality! Towards the end in this set you can see my lighting/background starting to line up with what I use these days, and I'm pleased with the quality of the art too! Woohoo, progress! That's always nice. :)
Pastel and Glitter Starburst Mani with Nail Vinyls
(Original Post: June 17, 2015)
This was actually my first time using vinyls, believe it or not! I'm still pleased with this colour combo and every time I see Julep Beatrix (the glitter topper) I'm reminded how much I like it! Gotta use it more often!
Sailor Moon Galaxy Stamping with Born Pretty Store BP-06 Plate
(Original Post: June 14, 2015)
This is still an all-time favourite for me, and I think it was my most popular post on tumblr ever. The galaxy design + stamping with the addition of Sailor Moon is a winning combination fo sho!

I think this is going to be the perfect vampy shade to pull out for fall this year, I don't think I've used it since these swatches so I'll have to fix that!
Dry Brush Nail Art with the Essie Silk Watercolours

Some days there's just nothing better than a good ol' dry brush mani! The Silk Watercolors Collection is still one of my favs, and I love how I paired it with studs in this look. :)
Water Marble Decal Nail Fail with the China Glaze Road Trip Collection
(Original Post: July 15, 2015)
Oh watermarbles. How I hate you. This was my first (and only, I think) moderately successful watermarble to date. I love the colours but I still feel pretty :/ about the execution. Oh well. I guess I should really put in more practice...
Dreamy Romantic Gradient Nail Art with Floral Water Decals from Born Pretty Store
(Original Post: July 20, 2015)
Loooove this look. LOOOVE it. Sometimes when I'm using water decals I get so overwhelmed trying to think of how to use them and what to add, but really oftentimes all you need is a simple neutral base and some good positioning of your decals. :)
Bold Black and Gold Nautical Nail Art with Born Pretty Store Anchors
(Original Post: July 21, 2015)
Another one that I feel I did really great with! I love love love the polishes I chose to put this together, and I like how the design complements the anchors without being too traditionally nautical. :) Definite win!
Let me know what you think, and I'd love to hear which is your favourite!
Thanks for visiting! xx
