Year in Review, 2016

I love seeing all the "best of" posts that we get when the old year turns into a new one! You can find all the manicures I posted in 2016 on Pinterest but below are some of the highlights. 

I will use the same strategy as in 20132014 and 2015 and divide this post into three parts. 
  • Part one features the three posts that have received the most comments from my awesome reader. Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to comment! It means so much to me <3
  • The second three are picked by my favourite everything S, he often enjoys different things from myself so it's always fun getting his take on the year.
  • The final three are my personal favourites.
If you happen to read this post on my website rather than through a feed like Bloglovin or Feedly you will also noticed that I kicked off this year with a fresh blog design! It is not completely different from my old one but it has a few extra features like being responsive (working well on mobile + tablets) and cleaner sidebar. This is the first design that I actually paid for. Previously I have done everything myself using various tutorials and long hours trying to tweak code I don't fully understand. This time I paid around 7$ and got everything more or less plug-and-play. Awesome. If you feel like upgrading your Blogger blog, I can highly recommend Etsy shop Blogger template. The owner is very helpful, both with responding to messages and even offers to install the template for you, for free.

Apart from the manicures in this list, I also did 100 more. How many will 2017 bring?

Reader's favourites (images link to original post):

My most commented look of the year is the first look from the 31 Day Challenge. The beginning of the challenge usually means an increase in visits and comments, so I'm not sure this is actually the best post of the year, but certainly the one that got the most engagement.
Second most commented post is from a few days later in the challenge when I posted this coherent green look.
The third reader favourite holds a bit of a lesson for myself. As I've mentioned, I sometimes felt like I need to push myself and do more advanced nail art, just to keep developing myself and the blog, rather than just doing nice manicures that I enjoy wearing. Seeing this rather simple nail art on the list here just proves that more complicated is not always better. Thank you for that!


Favourites of S (images link to original post):

S was immediately drawn to this manicure because of the colours used and the stamping pattern. I really like it too!
Second choice is this water marble which S liked due to the nice effect and also knowing how finicky water marbling is.
Finally S liked the composition of this water decal look. So do I, I must say ^-^.

My personal favourites (images link to original post):

Finally my own favourites. I always struggle narrowing it down to three looks because there are so many aspects to take into consideration. Did it wear well, did the design come easy, did I struggle painting it and so forth. That being said, this year it was fairly easy to find my favourite look. I love the lavender manicure I did for the 31 Day Challenge. It was also a big wow-moment for me when it ended up looking just as good as I had hoped. Usually when I freehand something it doesn't so this was a big win for me!
My second favourite manciure was posted just the next day. There is just something about this colour combination that completely won me over.
Finally a manicure from this summer which was quite time consuming to make but  was striking enough to make it well worth it!

Jag har bara översatt den inledande texten och inte den som ligger till varje bild. Hoppas det är ok!

Jag älskar att se alla inlägg med favoriter från det gångna året. Du kan hitta alla mina manikyrer från 2016 på Pinterest med ovan visar jag några av favoriterna sammanställda. Jag kör samma sätt som 2013, 2014 och 2015 och delar upp inlägget i tre delar
  • Den första delen är de tre inlägg som fått flest kommentarer från mina härliga läsare. TACK för att ni tar er tid att kolla in vad jag gör och även kommentera! Det betyder massor för mig <3.
  • Andra delen är S favoriter. Han gillar ofta andra grejor än vad jag själv gör så det är alltid spännande att se vilka manikyrer han gillar mest från det gångna året.
  • Slutligen kommer mina tre personliga favoriter.
Om du råkar läsa det här inlägg på min webbsida hellre än via någon prenumeration/feed såsom Bloglovin eller Feedly märker du förhoppningsvis att jag kickat igång det nya året med en ny bloggdesign! Den är inte jätteannorlunda från den tidigare designen men har några viktiga förbättringar såsom responsiv design (funkar bättre på surfplatta och mobil) samt snyggare sidomeny. Det här är faktiskt den första design jag betalar för. Tidigare har jag alltid gjort alla ändringar själv och använt mig av massa olika tutorials och lagt timmar på att justera kod som jag knappt förstår för att få det som jag vill. Den här gången la jag typ 60kr på en färdig design och fick allting mer eller mindre färdigt. Fantastiskt! Om du också bloggar på Blogger och känner för att fräscha till din design kan jag verkligen rekommendera Etsy shoppen Blogger template. Ägaren är väldigt hjälpsam och svarar snabbt på meddelanden och erbjuder även installationshjälp, gratis.

Förutom alla manikyrer som är med i det här inlägget hann jag med exakt hundra till i år. Nu till att se vad 2017 har att erbjuda!

  3. What a great selection !

    The first one is probably my favorite but I also loved the one you did on on Serenity by Emily de Molly and your minty plaid nails for the 40 great ideas challenge that are not in this selection.
    It,s so hard to choose 9 nailarts in 100 gorgeous ones !

    1. Thank you!! Super impressed you remember manis from nearly a year ago :) I really like the plaid ones too, but didn't wear the EdM look for long enough to bond with it (so to speak). Maybe time to recreate it? ;)
