Dry, Dammit!

A nail blog by an impatient polisher

A post down memory lane


*Nothing to disclose

I’m in a slight rush tonight as I am going to be participating in a focus group in about an hour’s time! Very exciting. I’ve never been involved in one before but this research company was looking for people and so I gave them a call. I was simply not going to post tonight, but then I thought wouldn’t it be fun to post some of my pictures I took of my nails before I started my blog, the pictures straight off my mobile phone? I hope you think so too!

Memory lane

Ah, my first ever shot. It took it to show a friend who asked me what I was wearing on my nails for my birthday. As you can see, it’s less than inspiring! And blurry, too!

Memory lane

A clearer shot and again for said friend to show her how I used the flower stickers she gave me for my birthday. I remember loving wearing this and I think it looks alright still.

My first go a getting what I thought was a good looking stamp manicure! It was done with a Konad plate, but I can’t recall the number now. I remember feeling so good with this and also quite clever for doing the accent nail as well. I actually got a compliment on these nails. Oh, the lack of clean-up, ha ha.

Fishtail nails! I worked so hard on these. I really like the look of them all done but it takes so much time that I reckon next time I would just do an accent nail.

My first – and so far only – attempt at galaxy nails. I wore this one out for nearly a week, I loved it that much. Looking at this actually makes me want to do galaxy nails again as I found it relatively easy to do compared some other nail art I’ve tried.

Memory lane

Christmas nails! Rudolph on thumb and Christmas tree on ring finger. I think I had another Christmas tree on my other thumb and a present on my other ring finger. I got a lot of compliments about these.

This is me experimenting with nail art tape. I really liked how it turned out. I bought a pack off eBay and kind of went a bit nuts with it, but have since only used it instead of sticky tape in nail art. I remember the edges of the nail art tape peeling as the day progressed when I wore this look and I eventually ripped off the nail art tape! More top coat next time.

I wore this over the Easter just gone. I went camping that weekend and so wore it the whole time and it lasted well. I loved the cute little bunny, there was another on the other ring finger, too, but this one was definitely the better of the two. The other looked semi-evil. Stupid dominant hand!

So, there are some of my nail looks I had been taking on my mobile phone before I started my blog. I think it’s safe to say I have improved a lot, but by using an actual camera instead of your mobile phone is a huge help. But in saying that, if I didn’t start with my mobile phone then I wouldn’t have been able to practice before beginning my blog, so it’s a two-way street.

What do you think of my nails above? I’d love to hear what you think, just let me know below. Thanks for reading!

  1. Some of these look familiar, I wonder why? 😉 It’s great to see how you’ve got more confident over time, and the photos are turning out so well now! I hadn’t seen the orange nail stamp before, but I really love it, it’s so bright and fun.

Please leave a comment! I read every one and always reply.
