Anyway, my nails look like crap and I'm hiding them in shame. I was doing okay when I tempted fate by posting them nude on IG. Then I went crazy and tried to round them again and JUST NO SHELBY. so lets look back at some better moments in 2014! I picked my fav mani from each month. It was hard.
Love, Angeline still has some of the best white jellies out there! She shared this mani and I was so proud. At this point my lighting and photography was so inconsistent but this photo turned out lovely. I think I need to get back to the upside-down photos....
So proud of these swatches, thermals are hard. And this one is so beauteous.
I got so many compliments on this mani.
I am sort of figuring out this photography thing at this point.
I love this mani to this day, even though my skin is a little lobster-y. I usually change my profile pictures to this in the Spring and Summer.
So this might be my favorite mani EVER. Love me some neon and nude!
June & July:
Oops, skipped this month and most of July. This was that nightmarish bathroom renovation. And yet we still have a hole in the ceiling where the upstairs toilet decided to blow through the wax ring two weeks after the ceiling was done.... But look, I made a meme!
RenCos is one of my favorite up-and-coming indies from 2014. I actually got to meet the creator and blogger Meghan from Will Paint Nails For Food through a mutual friend. She is lovely!
I love Hare and I love skittles. I still love this mani so hard. Black and white and color, yes please!
Mental health is a professional and personal issue for me.
I loved this simple but bold mani using Jindie Nails, another fav indie of mine!
And in case you need the number: 1-800-273-TALK.
I used to work on a suicide hotline and answer these calls :-)
I don't know what it is about this mani, it just tickles me.
Why do ugly curtains make the best nails?
I am still super-proud of this clever use of KBShimmer's decals.
I never wanted to take my lil tree off.
Thanks for checking out this look-back with me! What were your favorites? What were your biggest accomplishments in 2014, nails or otherwise?
Have you loved your cuticles today? (Dude, I don't even know if love can fix mine right now.)
