Evolution of a Manicure

This is the evolution of a manicure. Sometimes I try different manicures and techniques inspired by fellow blogger/IG nail ladies. They don't always work out as planned... but thats the joy of nail polish, its quite easy to fix :)

I did these manis a while ago and just never got around to posting them here... I've been an awful blogger, I'm trying to get back in the swing of things, but it is an uphill battle honestly.  To those who are still following me even though I fail at posting lately, I thank you <3

First I tried the new trend, a hairspray marble, inspired by @amkush15

 As much as I liked the idea of a hairspray marble, but I didn't pick the right colors so I decided to try a different accent nail.

This time I followed @sabrinasnails bow tutorial as an accent. This I loved, but I thought the rest of the mani made it look too busy... so that lead to further evolution.

This is the manicure I settled on to wear. The bow looked much better in person, photography is showcasing all of the imperfections of my handiwork.

Polishes used:
China Glaze Turned Up Turquoise (neon)
China Glaze For Audrey
OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls

Hope you enjoyed this post, sorry its so crazy long. If you stuck with my this far, thank you :)

Stay Sparkly,


  1. It's fun to see how manicures evolve, you start with some idea and end with a completely different look. I like that you showed your thought process and it's also good to know that there are others out there who go through a similar process like your own. And your bow is super cute :D
