Then and Now Throwback Nails: South Park

As today is a Thursday I am throwing back to some nails I did in 2010, and recreating them now 11 years later to see if I have improved! While I don't own all the exact polishes used originally, I have used similar colours.

Dotting Tools
Rainbow Collection Silicone Mat

I think I have improved somewhat, but plenty of room for improvement. People, even cartoon ones are so hard to freehand!

Nail Polish Battle 2017: Purple and Green

Purple and green polishes are today's 'battle'.  There are 12 in this section which made whittling them down more tricky.

Barry M - Fondant // Barry M - Dark Side of the Shroom // Barry M - Slip Stream // Barry M - Oasis // Barry M - Kiwi // A England - Whispering Waves // A England - Love is Enough // Barry M - Watermelon // Danglefoot Polish - In the Library with a Nail File // Barry M - Purple Hex // A England - In Robe and Crown // Barry M - Cocoa

So the three I chose were;

Barry M - Oasis // Danglefoot Polish - In The Library with a Nail File // A England - In Robe and Crown

Oasis is a dusty purple cremé polish, a very basic polish but a staple.

In The Library with a Nail File, this was the last edition to my polish collection in 2017. It is a duochrome, shifting from purple to green, with a couple of flakies thrown in there for good measure. As it is a duochrome is it hard to photograph that shift.

Can you believe these two are the same polish!?

As beautiful as the previous two polishes are, In Robe and Crown won the round. Holographic nail polishes are my favourite finishes, this one is a deep purple, verging on aubergine. Stunning!
