Then and Now: Week 7

Hey everyone! I'm sorry for the delay in posting, I've had a pretty busy week because I got back from uni and I was seeing all my friends who I hadn't seen in a while, I hope you dont mind! So today I have week 7 of my then and now 'challenge' which, as promised, is christmas related. I was debating whether to include these at all because I actually did these last year but I promised last week I would, and I also think it's a good way of seeing how I've improved throughout the past 2 years, and I guess these nails are becoming a bit of a tradition as well! More after the jump.

Oh look, bonus picture of my kitchen in focus! As you can tell I was reeeeally bad at taking good photos 2 years ago, I had improved more by last year but this years is definitely better. 

I used Barry M - Matt white as the background and did both years previously too, this year I used OPI -  Don't Mess With OPI for the holly leaves, Barry M - Red for the holly berries, Barry M - Silver glitter, and Sally Hansen - Just in lime for the inside of the leaves. This year all was done with a brush, last year all was done with a dotting tool, and the year previously all was done with a nail art pen (I guess my photography skills aren't the only thing that's changed)

Last year's nails.

What do you think? Which year was best? Let me know in the comments!


  1. I love that your kitchen is the thing that's in focus, so funny. I think this years is best although I do like the spots on the thumb from last years picture

  2. Haha "Oh look, bonus picture of my kitchen in focus!" that made me laugh. Your latest one is definitely best! The quality of the manicure combined with good lighting, hand position and unblurred photo makes it perfect!

  3. I like this years' best. Last years thumb looks silly.

  4. Your latest one is so pretty, it reminds me of wrapping paper!

  5. this year is the prettiest!i prefere the green colours there!

  6. I definitely like this year's the best! Do you think you're going to reinvent the design again next year? That would be super cool :o Hope you had a Merry Christmas!

    1. I think I probably will! Just to keep up the tradition haha. My sister always teases me that it's only because I can't think of anything else for christmas day but it's just a design i really like! Thankyou, I hope you did too! :D

  7. Hola!! ambas están realmente bien, a mi no me saldría así ni vamos!! jejej
    Me encantan, el color verde oscuro para mi gusto es toque más navideño pero también es verdad que en tono claro resalta más la uña.

    Te sigo que me rechifla tu blog!!
