Before Instagram Series - Spun Sugar

You people loooooved this look on Instagram when I did a blue version.
I think a lot of people didn't know about this technique, but I actually found a YouTube tutorial a whileee before that and did this combo of matte black and green.

I used China Glaze Black Mesh (I don't know what I was thinking using a crackle nail polish), Kleancolor Neon Green, the tool is from this Mash nail art brush set and Essie Matte About You.

Before Instagram Series - Corset

This design is not that different from the Converse one execution wise, but at the same time it looks nothing like shoes (I hope so).

This one was way cleaner than the Converse ones so I was very happy about that :)

For these I used Sinful Colors Dream On, which still is one of my favorite colors ever! And completed the details with the Sally Hansen Nail Art Pen and Shany White Striper.

Before Instagram Series - Chevron

I think this one was one of my favorite manis for a long time, I loved everything about it!

For these I used some nail guides I got from eBay, I have only seen these on eBay from this UK seller and they come in some many different shapes, it's a must have.

However, I wish they were a little thinner and beware! The glue is sooo strong, more often than not they will come off with your base color and all, so if you want to get them, make sure you use a bonding base and that your base color is really really really dry, like paint the base the night before or something, I'm not exaggerating!

Before Instagram Series - Watermarble

This is, by far, my favorite technique! I just love how unique watermarble is and how awesome they look is for those who don't know what watermarble is. I have to confess it took me a looooong time to get a hang of this, but I have gotten pretty decent.

But back to a year ago, I had no idea what I was doing, but I followed some tutorials on YouTube and this is what it came out, which I have to say it was pretty good for a first time... the second, third, forth and so on weren't nearly as good as this one.
