This year I was going to roll all my "top" posts into one, but I was half way through writing it up and realised it would be a short novel. So I'm splitting it into three posts. My top posts post will share my top instragram and blog posts from over the last year. Tomorrow will be my favourite polishes, and finally, my favourite nail art.
So for today, it's my top posts. These posts are kind of like a Simpsons rehash episode, where they just replay you clips from previous episodes. You'd think therefore that it would be quick to put together, but man, I've been sitting here for two hours already typing up these wrap up blog posts!
Let's get on with it and start with easy ones from Instagram.
Four of my five most liked posts on instagram were videos, the top five were:
5 - A Night in Vegas Water marble video
4 - Ulta3 Blue Marlin and Emerald Intensity gradient stamped. This one surprised me. It's nothing fancy but it made the list. Maybe I just happened to post this one at the right time to capture a bigger audience?
3 - Advanced stamping with black and white flowers video
2 - Watermarble over nail vinyls video.
1 - Black and white drag marble video.
My most commented posts on Instagram this year were all videos and were:
5 - Tattoo mixer video
4 - Clear jelly stamper with DRK plate trees video
3 - LED light galaxy video
2 - Holo slime video
1 - Black and white drag marble video. Same one as above, so I wont embed it again.
On my blog, my top five posts based on google analytics were:
5 - ILNP Mega S
So looking at these results, a few things are highly obvious to me about what I should be doing more on my blog and instagram. On my blog, people want to see in depth reviews and tutorials and pictures of recently released polishes. Hmmm I'll see what I can do about that. Yes, I'll try to more indepth reviews, but they will be of nail art products and not of polish collections. It's unlikely that I will be doing review of very many recently release polishes anymore.
On instagram, videos rule. Must do more videos. I like doing videos, but they are a lot more work, and making this whole nail polish blogging business feel more like work is not something I want to do. I will continue with instagram videos, but whether I can increase the number I do isn't something I'll commit to.
Come back tomorrow to see my favourite polishes from the year.
