Flashback Friday: Pop Art!

7:00 AM

It's the final day of the Digital Dozen Skittle Challenge and for today we're going to have a little Flashback Friday! The nails you see above come to you all the way from back in March of 2011 when I had just started blogging and was very new to the world of free hand nail art! In fact, Pop Art! was the fourth post to ever hit my little blog.  I had these weird decals I got somewhere and I wanted to use one and it sort of ended up with this! I used a stamp for the dots and I was so very proud of myself for that free handed word on the bottom! Those were the days before clean-up (and the days when I still REALLY needed it!) and before I bothered really worrying about a uniform shape for my nails. So how did the flash forward come out?

I used primary colors this time since they're more pop art than neons. I still had a decal but it looks kind of spongy now! I don't mind it though cause it reminds me of how my brush art sometimes looks when I don't want to be heavy handed.  I freehanded my dots this go round as well although they're not as uniform as I'd like so I almost wish I'd stuck to stamping! All in all though, I prefer the new look! Which is your favorite?

And don't forget to check out my fellow dozeners art below!!
