I've come a long way in 2012, as you're about to see. I started out with some pretty sloppy work and am very proud to say that I have cleaned things up quite impressively!
Here are some of my favorites from 2012:
From January: 1970s nails
From February: matted glitter nails
Done in February but posted in March: reggae nails
My first ever magnetic from all-green March.
Also in March, I started TartanHearts Jewelry! Mostly because I needed an excuse to buy more polish.
I don't care how much hate it gets, I'll always love China Glaze "Trendsetter". Also from March.
I started doing gel in April and never looked back! (and this polish will be part of my first nails of 2013!)
By June, I'd already started on a gel stash.
I got a little crazy in July.
October was Orange October and my manicures helped my beloved San Francisco Giants win the World Series!
This one helped them win the NLCS.
Seriously, it was a big month for my nails. This polish has tiny orange hearts! I still can't get over that.
Things got simple again in November and I tried the 'scrubbing in' method of wearing gel with glitter and loved it!
See? It's good in every color.
December got a little different again ...
... but it's finished off pretty strong with my Christmas nails.
I'll have one final 2012 mani after this: my New Year's nails. I just finished them up before I started working on this. After all, what better thing to do when your nails are still wet than a little typing?
Happy New Year! I hope 2013 brings as much nail-related awesomeness as 2012 did!
