Nail Art Sunday – Recreation of the very first nail art

The theme for today’s nail art Sunday at Lelack is to recreate the very first nail art featured on the blog. I searched through my archives and I saw that my first nail art was a pink skittle featuring Zoya Tiffany, Zoya Gloria, China Glaze Something Sweet and Orly Pixy Stix! Ah, such pretty polishes shouldn’t be forgotten in the drawers of my Helmers!

Nail Art Sunday - Recreation of the very first nail art

The first nail art was done in September 2011. I’m not quite found of the design but back then I remember being quite happy about this manicure :D

One of my biggest area of improvement when it comes to nail art was doing stripes! Looking at the difference between the first freehanded stripes and the ones that I’m freehanding now I think there’s been some improvement over the years! I still think the latest stripes are not perfect but hey, they are freehanded after all, perfection is hard to achieve! Maybe in a couple of years I’ll paint better stripes or learn the art of waiting for the base polish to dry before I add tape and paint the most perfect stripes ever :D.

Here is the first nail art featured on the blog:

    Kolla in läckerbitarna:)
    Och det har helt klart gått framåt i konsten att göra stripes och även hjärtan tycker jag mig ana;)

    Beautiful mani. Your skills are indeed improved. This would be cute for Valentine’s Day.

    Superfin! Håller helt med om linjerna, dina är jättesnygga! Frihandsritade linjer är egentligen mycket snyggare än tejpmålade tycker jag, men jag är för skakig för att bli nöjd. Kanske skulle börja öva ;)
