Then and Now Throwback Nails: Festive Sweaters

I haven't done a then and now nail post in a while now but I thought I would try recreating some nails I did back in 2013. I changed up the colour scheme and in the past three years my nails have certainly grown and changed in shape!

2013 v 2016

Back in 2013 I did these nails in a red theme, my nails are clearly too short for the XL stamping plate. Also my stamping on my thumb is exceptionally wonky.

Now I recreated them in a turquoise colour, my nails are the right length for the XL plate. My stamping also seems to be less wonky, although there is a slight bit I messed up but I don't think it is all that noticeable. That and my fingers are ageing too!

Stamping Plate: MoYou London - Christmas Collection 04 XL


This is a stamping plate from MoYou London, this particular one is an XL plate making it perfect for people with longer or wider nails. Images are 1.5cm x 2cm. The plate itself comes backed with a piece of white plastic meaning it is great for those who are clumsy. It does mean there is more of a clean up though.

It has 12 images on the plate itself. As you can see all of the images stamped relatively well, the wonky images are as I was using a squishy stamper as it is the largest stamper I have and these images are quite large. The mesh image was the one I had the most problems transferring.


I quite like a lot of these images, my only issue is the images are a little too wide for my nails. When I have short nails they are too long for them as well. MoYou London also do none XL image plates which are smaller.



Stamping Plate available from MoYou London.

Nails: Festive Sweaters

Hope you aren't all sick of these festive sweater style nails! I think that Be My Berry is the perfect Christmas red, it is a metallic finish so it adds a little special twist on the traditional cremé red finish.

Nails: Monkey See, Monkey Do - Winter Sweater Nails

I saw these nails by The Nailasaurus and I really liked them, while I didn't have a little deer to stick on I just improvised with a stamped deer.
