Then and Now: Week 2

Hey everyone! Today I have the second week of my Then and Now 'challenge' to show you. I wish I had left this one out to be honest, I don't know how I managed it before because it was incredibly difficult to put green over red and make it opaque, these nails were way way too thick and if it hadn't been for Seche Vite they'd have been off in seconds. Anyway, again this was done about a year or two ago, I can't be sure of exact dates but I really liked these when I did them first time around.

The first time I used all dotting tools but this time I used brushes and dotting rools, and I wish I'd stuck to my original method because it would have probably been a lot easier.

Take a look after the jump to see the original picture and polishes used!

For these I used an unnamed No 7 polish (really need to stop removing the stickers) for the grey, and the recent Glamour magazine's free red Nails Inc. For the white I used Barry M - Matt white, the green was Models Own - Lime Green, the Pink was an unnamed one from a set from boots, the yellow was a mixture of Barry M  yellow and white, and the Blue is Barry M - Blueberry and I think I used pretty much the same colours the first time around except the red was No 7 and the green was Rimmel.

Hope you like them! Let me know what you think.
