Six Year Blogiversary: Throwback

Thursday, 11 February 2021


Today marks my six year anniversary of blogging!  I seriously can't believe it.  I actually had to do the maths on it a couple of times because, like I said - I really couldn't believe it.  These last six years have gone by really fast!  In the past six years I have managed to do 1298 blog posts which equals a whole lot of manis (both swatches and nail art).  Anyway, given today is a big day for my blog I thought why not celebrate by going way back to where is begin.  If you have been following my blog since the beginning than you would know that my very first blog post wasn't actually here on my blog.  It was actually over on Theresa's blog - It's All About The Polish.  You can find that post here.  As I am trying to swatch my way through my collection and these polishes aren't on my blog I thought why not bring them on over.  I won't re-review these polishes but I will add the swatch details.

Gandalf's Fireworks.  Three Coats.

It's crazy to look back at these pictures.  I usually forget that I use to do a black border on my pictures, that I use to go by @oliviajade19 on Instagram and that I had the rounded watermark.  How things have changed.  One thing that hasn't changed over the years is my love for Grace-full Nail Polish.  Theresa asked me to test out some polishes for her, which then led to her asking me to swatch and review her first collections on her blog and then led to me continuing to swatch and review for her to this very day.  So I guess we have Theresa to thank for giving me the kick start to my blog.  

The biggest thank you goes to you guys who continue to stop by a check out my blog.  Thank you for supporting me for the last six years.  Here is hoping that I can continue blogging for many more years to come.  Like always, feel free to leave a comment if there is anything in particular you would like to see on my blog.  See you all in my next post x
