Polishers Inc. - Recreate an Oldie

It's time for my second Polishers Inc manicure - if you are not yet familiar with Polishers Inc, check out my previous post about it here. We have also another talented blogger joining our group today, welcome Lise from Polished Elegance!

The theme today was recreate an oldie and I really love this theme! I wanted to redo some nail art that I did when I first started this blog back in 2010, and here's what I came up with:
Dotting tool flowers were on of the first nail art that I ever tried. I wanted to keep this manicure quite simple and keep those flowers in the main role. I also wanted to use the same polish that I used then, OPI Kinky In Helsinki, so that is my base color. I wanted to add some sparkle, so I did a simple gradient with OPI Let Me Entertain You on the tips of my nails. I did the flowers and the dots with OPI Angel With a Leadfoot and the centers of the flowers are done with My Voice Is a Little Norse, from OPI also.

This was really a fun theme, it's not always so easy to see how far you have came from when you started. I have kept all my posts here in my blog and haven't really deleted any eventhough the pictures are so very awful. I think it's still nice to have them around and they are really a good reminder that maybe I have also learned something... :)


Actually, those dotting tool flowers back in 2010 were the first ones that I ever did and I didn't try them again before this recreation manicure. They are so very easy to do and they do look quite fun, at least from a little distance. In the close-up pictures they can look a bit messy, but oh well, I still liked this manicure very much.

We actually have a similar theme coming up later in our Finnish(able) Nail Art Challenge too and I'm really happy about that, because this was so much fun!


Have you guys recreated any nail art from your past?

    1. Haha, koitin kaivaa kaikista rupusimman lakkauksen ja kuvan, ehkä siis onnistuin. :D Ja itseasiassa tuo lakkaus taitaa olla melkein viiden vuoden takaa kun se on tehty jo 2010 keväällä, että onhan tässä aikaakin kulunut. :) Tää oli kyllä hauska aihe, onneksi meillä on haasteessa tulossa samantyylinen aihe niin pääsee tekemään toistamiseenkin. :)
