Before Instagram Series - Gold/Black Crackle

To this day, this gold nail polish is my favorite, and when you add a black crackled top it gives a cool tiger look, cool enough for me not to care is kinda like animal print, which I'm not a fan of.

For these I used China Glaze Black Mesh over Nanacoco Colorholic.

Before Instagram Series - My Stash

This needs no introduction, here's my stash as of August 2012. It looks so small now. I think it's nearly impossible to take a picture now that I'm sure I'm over 600 polishes. But back then I was around 160. The last picture also includes my nail art stash.

Before Instagram Series - Chevron and Dots

Ever since I got those nail guides from eBay I knew I was gonna use them a lot. It is an easy way 
to get a cool look, and chevrons are always in style in my book.

For these I used Kleancolor Red Alert, Black and White.

For the dots I used this set of dotting tools.

Before Instagram Series - Black/Grey Stripping Tape

I really liked this super elegant mani. This was the first time actually using the stripping tape as part of the design as in leaving it on my nails.

The color combination was perfect for a night outing. I used Sinful Colors Secret Admirer and Black on Black.

I painted my nails with the pattern I wanted to have and used the tape to outline the colors.

Before Instagram Series - Silver/Orange French

This is a pretty easy and fun style I created inspired on my new iPad smart cover.

For these I used Kleancolor Mango as the base color and used the silver glitter striper from Shany and added some cute clear flower rhinestones.
