I haven’t been inspired to do nail art lately, but last night I got a sudden impulse to re-create one of my previous designs. Someone liked my old picture on Instagram and I frowned because I felt like I have gotten so much better then I was back then. I wanted to challenge myself and see if I was right. The design in question was my Valentine Cute Teddy Bear design which gave me my first win in a nail art competition.
For my base I used one of the color from the price of the original design. TL Design – Pink Cadillac from the amazing “50’s Collection”. On top of that I created a gradient and topped it off with China Glaze – Fairy Dust.
For the base I used:
TL Design – Pink Cadillac
OPI – Kiss Me I’m Brazilian
OPI – Strawberry Margarita
China Glaze – Fairy Dust (added after the picture above was taken)
For the bear I used:
Polishmylife – Storm Clouds
Black and White acrylic paint
And here they are! My nail art from February 2014 and seven months later, the new and improved version.
So I’m not sure I actually did that much better on the bears themselves. But what I can say with certainty is that my photography skills and “posing” has gotten a million times better! Because I added Fairy Dust I didn’t want to mattify them, but I think it’s cute some gloss anyway. 🙂
So now I’ve told you what I think, but I’m super curious to find out what YOU think?! Do you think I’ve improved? And do you like these kinds of posts?
