It's Been A Year!

Hi girls,
No new nail posts today but I have some very exciting news to share with you all, I'm very happy to announce it's been a YEAR since I started doing nail art. I joined Instagram early Jan 2013 and posted one of my very first mani's that week. 

Since one of the first mani's was a New Years resolution, I thought, why not try and recreate the look. Funny story really, my 2013 resolution is my 2014 resolution as well - continue getting good grades at school so I can work towards having a career as a Forensic Scientist when I'm older. 

Here's my art work back in Jan 2013;
  Eeek, embarrassing right? Horrible lighting, awkward hand pose, yucky cuticles, poor application skills and the art is just horrible! Yuck

Here is my recreation, 6th Jan 2014;
Ahh, so much better! Good lighting, better hand pose, nice cuticles, good clean up and my skills have improved so much. 

I can't believe how different these mani's are and they're only one year apart! Can you imagine another comparison picture in another year or two? I love how I can look back at old pictures and try to figure out what I need to improve on in the future. In saying that, this year I want to try more detailed art and get the bad thoughts out of my head and tell myself " I CAN DO IT! ".

Thankyou to everyone who has supported me this past year. It's crazy to think that I, a 14 year old, joined Instagram as @nailpolishaddicted1 a year ago to hide her passion from her friends is now showing her love to over 3300 followers around the world. Thankyou so much everyone for a fantastic year, I can't wait to see what 2014 will bring!
