Happy 5th Year Blogiversary GIVEAWAY!

Allo polish Pals!

Thank you for joining me on such an important post! I can hardly believe today marks 5 whole years of blogging for me. That's half a freakin' decade!

Ok, technically IthinityBeauty.com is six years old but today marks my first ever post. It took me an entire year of pondering if I could really blog. I had build it up in my head as a huge and mighty task and I was afraid of failing – not sure why now.

But starting my blog was one of the best personal decisions I've ever made. My blog has been there in times where I've wanted to give up, given me structure and routine while I've not been working. 
Its taught me discipline and taught me how to schedule and plan. My organisation skills..well, I didn't have any before.
I've met so many wonderful ladies and had some really fun opportunities. My blog has grown and I have with it, so many things have happened in the past five years, people coming, people going..but my blog has been constant.

I want to thank you all so much to those who follow me and my nail art journey and those who lurk quietly and keep coming back to see what I've created next. You are all a big part of what makes blogging so much fun for me, thank you!

I decided not to do any blogiversary nail art this year. Instead I thought I'd include just one piece from each year. With 822 published posts this was not an easy task at all!!  I'm going to end with the most meaningful and deep nail art I've ever created. I'd see that nail art broke the boundries for me, it showed me that not only could I paint something 'pretty' but it could have a real depth to it.

2012 - riiiight back to the beginning!
2013 - Attempting freehand designs.
2014 - Getting braver!
2015 - My first 'big' nail art design. I was so pleased with this at the time. My nails were too long!

2016 - Loving acrylic paints and creating full nail scenes and landscapes.
2017 - The most meaningful nail art I have to date. This one came at a time of loss and hope.
This final nail art was inspired by my self growth, over coming personal difficulties, letting go of things and accepting others into my life, ending a long term relationship and ultimately moving back home to England. People often see this nail art as sad, I guess because she's on the edge of the cliff and the balloon has gotten away from me but its completely the opposite. It was a hard time in my life and you were all so lovely to me.

So as a little thank you for all the support over the years I'm hosting a giveaway!
