Ehmkay Nails at 10: 10th Blogging Anniversary

 Contains Press Samples

Holy cow, I started this blog ten years ago. I really cannot believe I am still keeping it going. For one, no one reads blogs anymore. I know this by my numbers of views. They only want swatch reels and that is all. But a video and a quick photo can make ANYTHING look nice. A blog gives the full review, but I guess that isn’t what people want! Every year I say how much more will I continue this? Who knows. 

So if you head to my first post ever, you can see why I started my blog and all that! I was showing it to Mr. Ehmkay and he was like, why don't you recreate that nail art? WHY DIDN'T I THINK ABOUT THAT?! He is the reason I started this blog and he always has the ideas! I usually post my birthday manicure for my blog anniversary post, but hey, this is better! Look at this comparison! 

The left is 10 years ago, if you couldn't tell, LOL!


I tried to use the polishes I used ten years ago. Yup, really. Turns out I had all but four of them! So I made some changes but the colors are super similar. I can't believe these colors are still perfectly usable ten years later. Some I use all the time. 

Here are the colors I used for this look. There are so many! It was fun pulling out all these old polishes!

  • Base: Zoya Zuza 
  • Sprinkles: China Glaze Point Me To the Party 
  • White: KBShimmer White Here White Now
  • Cherry: Zoya Hannah with OPI Love is a Racket

Here are all the colors of the cupcake wrappers:

  • Thumb: Zoya Michelle with Zoya Sarah
  • Index: Zoya Dannii with Orly Rococo A Go Go
  • Middle: Wet n Wild Nerd Alert: Screech with Zoya Cece
  • Ring: Zoya Arizona with China Glaze Riveting
  • Pinky: China Glaze I Truly Azure You with Orly Stone Cold

I took a lot of photos, because really, this just amazes me. The before and after made me laugh. Also, I bet the first time I did it, it took hours. This time, like 30 minutes haha.

I cannot believe it has been ten years, over 1,800 posts, over 12,000 comments, 800,000 views, so for this, a giant thank you!

Now that I think about it, I should have bought a cupcake to pose with, so eat one and think about my nails!

So there ya go! TEN YEARS! I don't even believe it. Come back soon because I'm going to continue the nostalgia and a walk down memory lane. :)
