Nail Art // The Digit-al Dozen Does Throwback Week: Recreating a 2012 Mani

by - Monday, October 09, 2017


This month the Digit-al Dozen is doing a Throwback Week! I've decided to do recreations of manicures I did during my first 5 years of blogging, one for each year. :) I'm starting in 2012 and this is actually a recreation of the VERY FIRST nail art look I shared on this blog! Whaaaat!

Check below for a look at the original mani from 2012, and then take a better look at my 2017 recreation!


So above is a look at my original mani. Though the photography could use some work, the design itself is nice! Simple, but the lines are crisp and the colours are really bold. :) You can check out the original post from December 2012 here if you'd like!


I tried to use the same polishes for this mani but since I actually couldn't find the original blue base I used another similar polish that I had in my collection from the same brand.

My base is Sally Hansen Tender Teal (which isn't teal at all!) and when that was dry I used some vinyls to section of my blocks and painted them in with the gloriously thick and glittery Sally Hansen Gem Crush Showgirl Chic.


Tomorrow we're heading on to a look from 2013. You can check out my posts from back then here if you want to try to guess which one I'm going to recreate! :)

Thanks for visiting! xx
