It's a revisit

The other day I had lunch with a girlfriend whom I hadn't seen in literally ten years.  We had been close and I had missed her.  She moved back to my area and we met up for lunch. It was like no time had passed at all.  It was crazy but nice.  There are always friends you have that no matter how long it's been since you last talked, you can pick right up where you last dropped off.

That lunch gave me an idea.  So far, I have been doing this blog for about a year and a half.  I went all the way back to the beginning to my very first post- and decided to revisit that gorgeous color and add my stamping funky touches that I didn't do back then. Back then, I only did my nails once a week on Sunday.  Can you believe that?  I didn't do any nail art and was using my iphone for a camera.  I was all into describing the color, I didn't tell stories like I do now.

Sometimes it's nice to see how you've progressed, isn't it?  Click here to go back to my very first post.  Scary right?  I didn't have my pose down and it just looks weird compared to now. Almost like it was a whole other person doing it.  Alas, it twas I!

Let's start with the silly bottle shot shall we?




This is Zoya Gemma and Estee Lauder Bete Noire.  I just love Estee's bottle.  So pretty.

I started with Gemma, which is a gorgeous green with purple shimmer, and an accent of Bete Noire.  Bete is a deep blurple and does match the shimmer in Gemma, but my camera is showing this as blue per it's usual MO.  Here are the beginning shots.

So much better this time around eh?  I still LOVE this Gemma. I just love the shimmer in it.  I next stamped with Cheeky plate CH44 and the opposite color.  Here is that step.

Pretty so far right?  I finished it off with my funky.  Here are the results.

Isn't this gorgeous?  It's fun to see how I've improved since the beginning eh?  Just like an old friend you haven't seen in a while.

Hey as an aside, I just discovered the new KOH! Sound collection and REALLY want it, but not enough to pay the exorbitant prices to ship them here to the USA. Is there anyone out there who wants to swap this set for some of my polish collection?  I have indie stuff and regular stuff I was going to add to an upcoming blog sale anyway.  If you are interested, use my contact tab above and let me know!

Until next time people. Any thoughts out there?
