Happy Birthday to The Nailasaurus

The Nailasaurus Infographic

Who could have known the blog that I started 4 years ago to post pictures of my scruffy little nails would one day end up here. The Nailasaurus has shaped my life ever since that fateful day in 2010 and I wouldn't have it any other way. It's introduced me to great people, unearthed talents I didn't know I had and guided me on to a career path I had no idea existed.

With this blogaversary coming up, it got me thinking back through the years to some of my defining moments and I thought that instead of telling you the story, it would be better to show you in an infographic. I picked out some of my most memorable moments and the ones that acted as catalysts that helped grow my blog to what it is today. 

Blogging has turned out to be the single most productive form of procrastination I ever did partake in. Every day, I'm thankful that I had the opportunity to start this blog and proud of the hard work I did to make it what it is today. Above all, I'm thankful for every one of you that likes what I do enough to stop by every now and then. Here's to many more years of productive procrastination.

  35. I don't leave comments that often anymore, but I'm a loyal follower of yours Sammy. Your freehand and creativity is unmatchable. I want to congratulate you on all of your successes and wish all the best for you in the future. In addition to being an inspiration for all, you have really contributed to showing that nailart can look awesome on any sized nail surface. The blogging world is full of "looong slender nails" and your look is unique and very inspirational. Keep up the amazing work! Hugs from Canada ;)

  37. HAPPY BLOGGY BIRTHDAY!!!! I found my way to your blog by searching "Harry Potter nails" a year ago and haven't looked back. (Actually, all of my favorite blogs have been a result of me searching for HP stuff, which can't be a coincidence, right?). Your manis are always so unique and flow perfectly, some being borderline genius, like your mendhi/henna mani and rose decal/ fractal mani with pastel studs. Your blog name is adorable as well and your blog itself has perfect balance. So I guess what I'm trying to say is, you're awesome and it shows in your blog!
    To many more blogiversaries!
