As I promised yesterday, before the year 2013 will be upon us, I want to share with you my favorite nail art manicures I did this past year. I picked only five, because I haven't done a terrible lot of creative designs this year (I love nail art, but I wish I was more talented and less of a perfectionist, lol). So without further ado, let's have a look at my picks.
First up is the Spooky Forest design I wore on Halloween this year. This is probably my favorite nail art project of this year. I just love the combo of newspaper nails, sponging and freehanding and for the first try in newspaper nails, these came out really nice I think.
Another Halloween design that I enjoyed creating and wearing a lot was the Jack'O Lantern drag marble manicure I showed you during my Spooktober series.
Another design I want to show you again is the "Pow" manicure I did following a tutorial from the Wah Book Of Nail Art (which is definitely worth checking out if you're interested in nail designs).
Of course I also had to add my very first gradient manicure to my top 5 list. This one reminds me of summer, sunset and tequila sunrise.
And last but nor least, how can it be, I had to add my beloved Floam gradient design to the list. I just love gradient manicures and I adore Floam, so the two together are just so much fun to look at :D
So that was my personal recap of 2012 as far as nail polish is concerned. 2012 has been an exhausting but great year for me and now I am eagerly waiting for the things to come in 2013 (I have to change jobs and I am curious where it will take me). So to all of you out there, thank you so much for your support and kind comments as well as various chats on Twitter and IG. I have "met" so many wonderful people through blogging and it is safe to say that the nail art community rocks! May the upcoming year hold lots of good things for you and your loved ones.
Have a great New Year's Eve and see you next year :)
