Hi Everyone! Hope your week is going well so far! Following my midterm week, I am now working on my term paper and class presentation. Time to conquer that stage fright!

Today’s post is very special to me. I created this nail art to celebrate and thank my over 2000 followers on Instagram. Don’t get me wrong, my blog is very much my baby ♥ I put much work thinking, planning, designing and building (with the help of my hubby) this blog before I ever formally published my first post. At the same time, Instagram occupies a special place in my heart since it’s the place that my own original nail art first appeared and I got noticed and featured by a few much more established nail accounts that I’ve always admired. Since then, I’ve met more talented and obsessed nail artists than I ever would have dreamed of in real life. If you’d like to check out my Instagram account, you can do so here or by clicking the link in the side bar. Without further ado, here it is!

I spent lots of time drawing and scratching out design ideas for this nail art. I wanted it to be festive and special but not complicated. So, birthed forth many firsts for me: first glitter gradient, first time posing with an object (other than nail polish bottle) and first time revealing my love for origami. The yellow is piCture pOlish Mellow Yellow (swatched previously here with another nail design) as the perfect canvas for the glitter piCture pOlish Blogger. The blue pyramid is symbolic for reaching over 2000 followers. Honestly, I never thought I’d make it this far since there are already so many established nail accounts out there. But, I love sharing my passion. And it fills me with happiness and excitement every time I get a like, a comment, or a follow. Also, I’m thankful for those who are more shy out there but nonetheless have viewed my nail art. If it puts a smile on your face, then it means the world to me. The accent nail with glitter placement is a recreation of my first original nail art, Nested Triangles, which is also the first post here on my blog!

Hope you enjoyed it. Have a great rest of the week and thank you so much for reading!
