Cherry Blossoms | The Digital Dozen Does Inspired by Each Other

Hi everyone!

I’m back with a final very late addition to the Digital Dozen’s Inspired by Each Other theme. For today’s look, I was inspired by this pretty cherry blossom look by The Polished Koi. The blue gradient she did really drew me in, and the cherry blossoms finished me off!

I’m still playing catchup for The Digital Dozen’s inspired by each other theme – and getting even further behind. I’ve already done my fourth look for this theme, and I think I’m going to let number 5 go this month – I have some exciting swatches and more nail art to share with you next week!

Black & White Dotticure | The Digital Dozen Does Inspired by Each Other

Hi everyone!

I’m running a bit behind with this week’s Digital Dozen posts – I’m going to a conference next week and I’ve had a really busy few days preparing for it. The good news is I think I’m ready for the conference, so now I’m going to be playing catchup with some nail art posts for you. For my second ‘inspired by each other’ look, I was inspired by this black and white dotticure done by Druid Nails. Simple but so striking and pretty!

Abstract Floral | The Digital Dozen Does Inspired by Each Other

Hi everyone!

It’s Digital Dozen week! This week’s theme is Inspired by Each Other. We were originally going to do something a bit different for the month of May, a rotation week where we’d each do a guest post on a different member’s blog each day of DD week, but sadly that didn’t work out, so inspired by each other it is. For my first look of the week, I’ve done an abstract floral inspired by this look by Marisa of Polish those Nails.

Peace Sign Stamping

Hi everyone!

When I posted about Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer The Ancient Power yesterday, I didn’t really feel like my pictures were doing this polish justice. Maybe it’s just me being overly critical after a really busy few weeks, but I wanted another chance to show you this beauty while it’s still available! I decided to add some quick stamping and show you how nicely The Ancient Power pairs with silver.

Hi everyone!

Today I have a review and lots of pictures to share with you of an aurora nail powder from Born Pretty Store. I’ve tried a few powder products by now, in holo, chrome, and multichrome, and it’s always fun to see the transformation as you apply these to the nail! They also have plenty of nail art applications – remember my over-the-top metal-dipped fingers? Today’s powder has a gorgeous shift and interesting character over both dark and light bases.

Dragon Scale Diamond Glitter

Hi everyone!

Have you realised by now that I like dragons? Your first hint was over 3 years ago when I posted freehand dragon nail art for the first time. After that, it was a while before I returned to my favourite mythical creature, but I eventually got back to it with some Game of Thrones inspired dragons. Since then, I’ve also done not one, but two dragon eye looks, and another freehand dragon.

Today, I’ve done some dragon scale-esque glitter placement.
