Recreation of my very first posted nail art ever - Bows!

It's Sunday and that means Nail Art Sunday! :D The task this week was to recreate your very first nail art. A fun and different theme! More of those Lela! ;)

I posted this bow nail art almost exactly three years ago on the 11th of February. I'm not that proud to show you how it looked by then ;) but you can see a picture of it below. I was a both a nail art and a stamping beginner and as you all know - practice makes perfect ;)

I really love the color of the base polish - China Glaze Four Leaf Clover. It's such a vibrant green! Then I've simply made little white bows with a white polish and Konad plate m3.

This is some of the things that I've learned over the last three years: :)
- How to do a proper clean-up
- How to take better pictures
- How to edit my pictures
- How to place a stamped pattern more accurately
- How do stamp better and clearer

The top picture is without a top coat because the base polish makes the white bows turn yellow. The old picture is with a top coat.

Now for the great moment ;) - the before and after pictures:
(It's the same polish I promise! I've got a much better camera nowadays. Top picture is color accurate.)

Bow manicure done three years ago

Do you think I've improved? 
Isn't it amazing that Four Leaf Clover still has the same
amazing formula after been opened THREE years ago?!


  1. I can definitely see an improvement! :) Its such a pretty bow manicure!

  2. Hi doll, so pretty bows!!! And great theme for nailart Sunday. What a leap you made in those three years - awesome!!! Four Leaf Clover is such a great color and my older China Glaze also kept their formula well - have a lovely Sunday - viele Küsschen xxx

  3. Klar förbättring! Fast båda är fina:)

  4. Så fint det blev både första gången och nu, även om man ser att du har blivit så mycket bättre på att stämpla nu :)
    Jag måste plocka fram Four Leaf Clover! Det är så vackert!

  5. Helt klart en förbättring, det var precis det här jag ville se:)

    Tack, jag ska försöka att vara kreativ när det kommer till att välja tema men det är inte lätt alla gånger. Det ska ju passa alla.

  6. Den främsta skillnaden för mig är just hur färgerna skiftar! Båda manikyrerna är jättesöta!
    Att få till perfekta stämplingar för alla naglar, både att de är raka och att hela motivet följer med är en konst som du verkligen bemästrat :)

  7. Absolut en förbättring, du har blivit jättebra på stämpling!

  8. Huvva det där tycker jag är svårt, du gör det galant. Vilken skillnad på bild.

  9. Also the first one looked nice but in this one I definitely see a big improvement!
    Beautiful green! :-)
