Year in Manicures: 2019

It's almost 2021 and I'm FINALLY through my backlog of posts from 2019!! /cries

Looking at my 2018 year in review post, I said there that you could tell how busy I had been since I was writing the review post in March - I wonder how busy that means I was this year since I'm writing this post literally almost a year late...

Despite how far behind I fell with posts, I did manage to paint 70 designs for myself in 2019, as well as 12 videos for CutePolish (I'm a part of the team on Sandi's channel if you didn't know!).
Out of those 70 designs, I'm going to take a quick look back at my nine favourites from the year!

I’m going to be ringing in the New Year in my favourite way - with my nails literally dripping with glitter! ✨🥂🍾

Colours of the Season

I really loved the fall colour palette nails that I did a few months ago, so I wanted to revisit them again for winter!

I want you, I want you, want you 👀

EXO is back! Even though we were completely robbed of seeing X-Xiumin, X-Lay, and X-DO, EXO still killed it with this album's 6 member lineup.

I'm still sticking with nature inspired nails for the moment, but this time I'm focusing on trees instead of flowers.

You're My Twenty-Four

Guess who's officially in her mid-twenties? 🙋‍♀️🎂🎈
I thought my birthday nails had peaked at 21, but this set is giving them a run for their money.

Cause when we're jumping and popping... we're JOPPING! 🤘
There were a lot of differing opinions about SuperM's concept when they first debuted - and some fans are still divided on it - but I'm personally totally here for it. I love being able to see so many of SM's powerhouses perform together in one group (and let's face it, seeing Taemin and Jongin in a group together at last is something to be hyped about)!

Since I was so excited for their debut, I kind of went all out for the design.

I’m mildly embarrassed to admit that it’s taken me nine months to add BT21 to my Character Cuticles series 🙈

Gucci Boy

The last design in my mini autumn series is inspired by Gucci, and more specifically by Kim Jongin's (EXO's Kai's) all Gucci airport fashion from 190907 ✨🍂
