In celebration of my blogiversary this month, I thought it'd be fun to show you guys where I started and where I am now with my nail art.
I'm always saying that practice makes perfect and that nail art takes patience so today I want to show you guys exactly what I mean. I'm still not where I'd like to be and I am always learning but my nail art now is significantly better and cleaner than when I first started blogging!
Not only did I learn how to take a better picture (I mean, really, the first picture is not my proudest moment) but I also learned how to create sharp, crisp lines with tape. Original posts: before and after.
This one is pretty dramatic! Over the years I learned how to create actual leopard print, the first picture looks like random spots while the second is more defined leopard. Original posts: before and after.
I will say that the before is not so bad; however, the leaves are visibly uneven and messy. Once I started to actually take my time and not rush through designs, I could create sharper details. Original posts: before and after.
I will say it again, and again, and again, and again...practice makes perfect! It has taken me a lot of time (and manicures) to get where I am today.
Let me know if you'd like to see more of these posts!
