followthatway GREETINGS FROM BOSTON! 🏻 what better way to spend my entire summer am I right?! well I hope everyone is doing well -- I suffered 4 broken nails on my plane ride(s) here just because the air was so dry anyway, here's a little number for you! The 3CE nude base is from @nailartsg -- in case you don't know, I reckon 3CE is such a huge cosmetic brand in Korea, and their nail polish range is really well-formulated and smooth 🏼 the studs and accessories are from @lightinthebox! I did an accent rose if you can tell, and then I tried to frame it with a baroque looking accessory HAHA! The rose gold polish is from All That Glitters. I also used @whatsupnails's striping tape to do my chevrons and what not Okay that's all for this morning! I hope you like this, and thank you for reading! (ps. Thank you all who responded to my previous post -- I'm still figuring it out, hopefully my time in Boston will enlighten me for a bit)! LOVE TO U ALL! 2mon

followthatway Hi lovelies, I'm gonna be honest with you for a few moments: I'm in a bit of a rut right now. Meaning I get inspired so much that it's so overwhelming, I feel like I've done everything and nothing, and worst, I feel like I'm doing the same thing over and over again. Now I'm not saying that I don't want to continue doing florals (or specifically rose nail art), in fact I will do so. I just feel as if I'm not doing something right about my content (gut instincts ) and I'm losing my personal style as I go along. In other words, I'm not entirely happy with the content I'm putting up (or lack thereof ). Which is why I'm considering the option of changing my beloved name "Followthatway" to a more personal brand -- one that speaks closer to my heart; one that encompasses what I'm truly passionate about: to create an inspiring heartfelt brand stringed together with my personally hand-drawn florals, or something like that I have many upcoming plans that I'd like to execute, many of which are personal projects that I truly wish to share, and of course not forgetting me embarking on blogging and youtubing -- so before I start doing anything further, here's some background about the potential change in name:

The name "Annabel Raeanne" means a lot to me -- Annabel is my first name, and Raeanne is my Catholic/spiritual(?) name (I mean I hand picked this name 6 years ago or so when I was given the choice). But most importantly, the two names kinda resemble an anagram to me (or close enough HAHA), symbolizing that there is always something more than it meets the eye, and that life is always exciting and fulfilling, you just gotta look deeper into it So I'd like to know your thoughts -- should I make the switch to a completely new branding, or leave it as it is? Please let me know what you think, I'd love to hear from you! Thank you so much for reading, and normal posting will resume soon!

  •   aanaya7 I love the floral art work!! it is totally inspiring. Keep the name @followthatway 3mon
  •   yhhke5 If you feel the need to change the name to something more personal do it. @followthatway I love your florals and your post. Whatever makes you happy makes me happy as your follower! 3mon
  •   saaraaah27 You'll continue being the same talented girl you are no matter which is your instagram account name @followthatway if you think this change is what you need right now just go for it, we won't stop following you whatever you do, lovely! 3mon
  •   ponkle Go for it! I mean, the possibility to change the Instagram name is not limited. You can always go back or change again if you feel like it. And I love your spiritual name, it's beautiful. This change may encourage you to keep your personality, I believe. On the other hand it may be a little hard to remember, but most people just click links, not try to remember the whole name. I really think you should change if that's what you want 🏻 3mon
  •   nailartsg Anything will do. If you feel like it do it@followthatway 3mon
  •   nenetsa2001 Love your name ... Go for what makes you happy .. Tag me 3mon
  •   caitreneswir I'll follow you no matter what!! 3mon
  •   princesslypolished I missed this question when you first posted it. YES! Change your name if you'd like to. However, be sure to create another account immediately after and use the @followthatway name so no one else can impersonate you... I believe Instagram still allows usernames to be "stolen"..? 😕 Anyway, your name is lovely and definitely more personal - go for it! I your nail art style. 2mon

followthatway I'm so excited to share this! Check out these awesome new nail tape, stencils and detail brushes that I got from @whatsupnails! 🏻 Ladies and gents, if you're in need of a good detail brush, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND the Pure Color Glamor brush line. I've been using the #2 for a while now but I'm so excited to try the #1! ️ ALMOST ALL, I repeat, ALMOST ALL my florals are previously done with the Pure Color Glamor detail brush -- I mean, if you need that kind of detail, you gotta get the right tool, amirite? hahahaha trust me, the right tool makes a huge difference. Also, it'll be my first time trying out nail stencils and tape so wish me luck guys! AND OH YES! Quote "FOLLOWTHATWAY10" to get 10% off your purchase of nail tape and stencils and stickers on @whatsupnails! 😇 That's All for tonight -- time to got back to studying for finals tomorrow. SEE YA IN A BIT 3mon
  •   followthatway @nibslovesnails yay! You'll love the pure color glamour brush line if you're getting those! I can vouch for the #2 because that's what I've been using all the time -- time for a switch to #1 to see how it goes! Hahaha I hope you'll find what you're looking for! :) 3mon
  •   nibslovesnails @followthatway ugh I can't decide between that set or the 9,10,11 set. 3mon
  •   followthatway @nibslovesnails well I think both brushes have different grips. The glamor ones are much more sleek and thin, the pure color 9, 10, 11 have a thicker grip. I've seen people do great detail work with either line of brushes, so it depends on what you like! If you wanna try both lines of detail brush, then I suggest getting pure color 10 and either glamor 1 or 2 :) hope this helps! 3mon
  •   morahash89 Aww sorry about your pinky nail! 3mon
  •   whatsupnails Aww thank you for your kind words! You made my day! I hope you will have fun using all these products! 3mon
  •   whatonegirlloves Poor pinky nail though... 3mon
  •   nailsbynadia_ What is the best brush? I couldn't decide. I chose the pure detail #9 is that a good one? 3mon
  •   followthatway @nailsbynadia_ hahaha I love the glamour brush! I think I'm more used to a thinner grip. Haha I think it should it fine! :) 3mon

followthatway I'm not sure what to call this so I'm calling it the "basic followthatway mani", probably because I repeat this pattern aaaaa lllloootttt, just in different colors 🏻 I used so many colors for this I lost count! The roses are done with holo nail polishes (I'll reveal the names in the video process) but let's just say they're from @lilypadlacquer & you can get them from @beautysofly 🏻 okay thank you for reading! Have a great day ahead! 4mon

followthatway Floral inspiration/mood board (from secretly taking photos of things I saw in shops...or on people) I mean I saw a really pretty floral bra from Marks & Spencer but it's not in this board (it will be in another ) pretty sure people were looking at me with eyes as my phone ogled at the floral bra okay ANYWAY! This is how I get inspired... Patterns, color schemes, they are all around you! You just have to open your eyes and look! oh and that black floral pattern is a backpack from Coach which is just way too pricey. okay I hope you like this! Comment if you'd like to see more of my mood/inspo boards! Thank you for reading! 4mon

followthatway When it doubt, use mint and pink This is so soothing to look at! I just love the color combination of mint and pink -- you can use any sort of mint/pink polishes you have! I tried this mani using gel polishes I got from @blogshop_queenie and drew the roses with regular acrylic paint (you can get these from art stores) using @stylishnailartshop's Pure Color Glamour 2 brush ️ I think this is just nice for spring/summer! (Psst. The best part is, you can prolong your mani if you deal it with gel top coat and cure it under UV/LED light hahaha... or that's what I do ) That's all for now! Thank you for reading! 4mon

followthatway Close up for my previous floral mani! I used @opi_products's "Don't Bossa Nova Me Around" for the nude base Then I used @stylishnailartshop's Pure Color Glamour 2 brush and several acrylic paints for the roses. \\ current state: stuffing almonds incessantly in my mouth to curb my midnight hunger because I'm too lazy to cook anything HAHA! okay thank you for reading!! 4mon

followthatway It's really very therapeutic drawing roses for fun, especially when your acrylic paints are drying out and your brush hairs are flailing about I used @opi_products's "Don't Bossa Nova Me Around" for the nude base -- it's such a pretty colour I don't mind wearing it alone! then I used @stylishnailartshop's Pure Color Glamour 2 brush and several acrylic paints for the roses. I hope you like this simple floral mani! A close up will be posted soon! Thank you for reading! 4mon

followthatway ️ Press Play! What matters is that I managed to sandwich a regular polish (@colourgossipnails's Naked) in between gel base and top coat (by @madam_glam) + adding roses with acrylic paint! 4mon
