Hi, there! Today, I’ve got a super throwback manicure to share!
As you can see, these photos were taken back during my earlier days of not only doing nail art but taking photos of my nail art, so they’re not the best quality, however, I do feel like that’s what makes looking back at these so nostalgic for me. 🙂 It goes to show that I’ve come pretty far with not only my nail art but also my picture-taking skills, haha. Also, keep in mind, all of my earlier pictures from back then were taken on my Android 3 camera phone… so, yeah. 🙂
For this manicure, I used Nubar 2010 for the base, China Glaze Ruby Pumps for the French Tips, and Zoya Purity for the polka dots.
I painted on the French Tips using the brush that comes with the nail polish, and I used a dotting tool to place the dots over the French Tips. For a little extra cuteness and sparkle, I also added a red heart-shaped rhinestone as a little accent to each nail.

Nubar’s 2010 was a pretty rare and difficult-to-find polish at the time of my first purchasing it 12 years ago in 2011… so uh yeah… I seriously don’t have a link for that one.

I thought I’d be able to easily find some red heart-shaped rhinestones, but it turns out that I couldn’t find any the same size I used. The size I used was around 2mm, and all the ones I was finding were 3 mm and above, which I feel is a bit too large for this type of manicure.; however, if you want to use some that huge, here’s the link to some I found: https://ebay.us/tXfD69
