Tag: As time passes by...

Hi guys! Quick post from me today because I am a busy lady this week!

Polish Amor tagged me in this cool tag - the point is to post a photo of what your nails used to look like and what they look like now!
I'm going to post a few pictures because my nails have changed a lot, and still change! Haha.

Here is the first nail photo I ever posted!

Not that different from now, right? That's because I started blogging just as I got good at doing my nails and decent at photographing them!

But I did have a big backlock of manis to post and they were not so well done...
So here are some examples of my first attempts at nail art and the photography involved!

Great photo angle, no?
Short/uneven nails, awkward photo, messy cuticles...

That picture is just tragic.

Just look at the shape of my nails. LOL!

And here is how you generally see them today!

You see lots of pretty swatches...

Sometimes I let them grow...

Sometimes I make 'em short...

And most times they're somewhere in the middle.

I've certainly improved, haven't I?
The lesson here is, never fear if your nails aren't perfect now, because with practice and patience, they can be! My nails are living proof.

I hope you guys enjoyed this post!
