Pink Wednesday #1 and As Time Passes By tag

I've decided to join in for the Pink Wednesday fun, so here's my first mani! I went for a taped mani, I haven't done that in a while because I'm often too impatient, but I applied the basecolor yesterday already so it would be completely dry this morning.

I used 2 coats of China Glaze Something Sweet, taped it off and used Catrice Sweets For My Sweets (anyone else singing the next line straight away?), then a coat of Seche Vite. Once that was dry I taped it off again and used Essence Most wanted and another coat of SV after that. And here's the result:


The pinks are brighter irl, especially the darkest one. Lately my cam seems to find purples easier than pinks, lol, ain't that weird?


Vicky tagged me for the the As Time Passes By tag, thanks girl!
I like the idea of this tag, I have to compare my first mani to my last one :) Although I'm glad that my first post's pictures aren't as bad as some of my others, lol. The last mani you can see above of course, the first one is from this post, where I showed several manicures. I picked this mani because it's also a mani with Something Sweet.

What has changed is pretty obvious I think, the shape of my nails (I love my current shape much more) and the way I take pictures (the angle makes a huge difference for me!). My polish, cleanup and nail art skills have improved since then as well, and I keep my pics bigger nowadays.

I'm gonna tag some bloggers that have been around for a while, I think it'll be fun to see how they started! :) So here are the 8 I pick:

The Polishaholic
Also Known As...
Babbling Brooke
Let Them Have Polish!
The Swatchaholic
Candy Coated Tips
Frazzle and Aniploish
Imperfectly Painted

Thanks for looking! ^^

  4. your manicures have always looked awesome, though.. even with a long length and different shape. I love the manicure you did today.. smart idea to lay down the base color the night before. I'm going to remember that because I'm too impatient too and they never work out because I can't wait for the base to fully dry, lol!
