Bloopers of the year

Despite the lovely photos, enthusiastic text and positive discussions, beauty blogging doesn't always work out as planned. Sometimes photos are just a mess, my post is so poorly written and spam comments are just flowing in, and there is really nothing you can do about it.

Here are a couple of snapshots from this year's 'bloopers' that didn't make the final cut.

So I learnt this year that nail art isn't my thing. No seriously, I mean it really, really isn't an area in which I should dedicate a whole lot of time. That horrible mess to the left was an attempt at 'Tribal inspired' nails. Instead it was more like 'Scribbles of a two year old' because it just looked awful.

I was brave and tried an OOTD post, and the photo below was a bit of a blooper for that shoot. An OOTD without the outfit? I think not.


I attempted another OOTD which also had a couple of bloopers...

In Winter especially, taking pictures of products can be absolute hell because lighting is so hard to come by. I thought I would try and see whether I could brighten and adjust shades on the computer, but this is what happened. I won't be trying that again...


So I might not be able to master nail art, but normal polish is okay...it's just the photography that can be a bit of an issue. I'm left handed so I take photos of my right hand because the polish always looks nicer. You may notice that the button on the camera is on the right, so I have to try and hold the camera and take photos with the wrong hand. I promise it is harder than you would imagine. Super close up shots are often an issue.
So there you have it, bloopers for the year. Beauty blogging can be harder than it looks!
