Then & Now - 1st Blogged Mani Recreation

Hello! As my last blog post was my 100th (see here), I thought I'd do a 'then & now' to see how far I've come and what's changed. I somehow didn't actually show my nails until my third post - my first was nail care items (post here) and second a nailbox unboxing (post here). My third was a combination of Picture Polish 'Tiffany' and OPI Liquid Sand 'Tiffany Case' which I have recreated for you today. As always, read on to find out more!

Picture Polish 'Tiffany' & OPI 'Tiffany Case' @acertainbeccaa

To start off, here's the picture from my original post back in August. I painted my thumb and ring fingers with OPI liquid sand 'Tiffany Case', and the rest of my fingers with Picture Polish 'Tiffany'.

Original 'Tiffany' Nails @acertainbeccaa

For my recreation, I used the same polishes on the same nails. As I've found with other OPI liquid sands, 'Tiffany Case' was opaque in just one easy coat and doesn't need topcoat. Picture Polish's 'Tiffany Case' has a slightly trickier formula. It is smooth and easy to apply, but goes on fairly streaky at first. I used three coats and topcoat.

What do you think? I still love the combination! 'Tiffany Case' reminds me of Cinderella's slippers, so I might have to use it in a princess design soon! It's crazy to think how much my blog has changed in such a short time. My nails are shaped better and I much prefer my newer hand pose. I also have higher quality pictures - mainly due to lighting.

Hope to see you in the next post!
