The Digital Dozen Does Futuristic: Jupiter Nails

Hi everyone!

It’s the final day of The Digital Dozen’s Futuristic week, and I’ve saved my favourite look for last! It was only my favourite by a small margin – I loved my metallic dipped fingers as well. The other looks I’ve shared so far this week were some Star Trek nails, holo and neon geometric nails, and chrome half-moon nails. Today, I have done some nails inspired by Jupiter!

The Digital Dozen Does Futuristic: Holo Neon Geometric Nails

Hi everyone!

It’s day 4 of the Digital Dozen does Futuristic! So far this week, I’ve shared Star Trek nails, chrome half-moon nails, and metal-dipped fingers. For today’s look, I was thinking about the directions that a lot of movies take with futuristic fashion. Think the garish colours of capitol fashion in The Hunger Games, or the hard geometric lines, lights and metallic finishes of the fashion in Tron. I wasn’t inspired by any specific movie, but it was with these types of bright colours, geometric shapes, and metallic finishes in mind that I came up with today’s nail art look.

Hi everyone!

One of the things I was thinking about with this week’s Futuristic theme was: how will people do their nails in the future? There was a time when red or neutral nail polish was about all you’d see; half moons were huge in the 30s, and the French manicure was all the rage in the 80s – and in some circles, it’s still all the rage. These days, you can get any and every colour, and a lot more nail art is being done – although most people still tend to go for a plain colour.

In the future, I figured, maybe a metallic chrome finish will be all the rage. And, as fashions tend to do, maybe the half moon fashion will come around again, just with a bit of a twist! This is what I came up with:

The Digital Dozen Does Futuristic: Star Trek Nails

Hi everyone!

It’s Digital Dozen week! This week’s theme is Futuristic and I am so excited for it! I think this might be the first time I have actually finished all five looks ahead of time – I just had so many fun ideas for this theme! For the first one, I have done some nail art inspired by one of my favourite series – Star Trek.

Supermoon Lacquer: The Hound of Hades

Hi everyone!

Have you heard about Polish Pickup yet? If you’ve been paying attention to my blog, you have – I swatched a couple of Northern Star Polish contributions to Polish Pickup in the past. This was an idea that was started a few months ago to get various polish makers together, each creating their own polish to fit a certain theme. Each month there is a new theme and all of the polishes created for that theme are available together on one site during a brief pre-order. It is a great way to try out a variety of brands!

I made my first Polish Pickup purchase during the month of October. The theme was Monsters & Mythical creatures and there were a couple of polishes I just couldn’t pass up! Today I have one of those I purchased to share with you – Supermoon Lacquer The Hound of Hades.

Magenta Holo Nails with Starry Stamping

Hi everyone!

Remember the pink holo chrome powder I showed you a couple of weeks ago? Here it is again with added starry and lightning-y stamping! The intensity of the chrome finish made me want to stamp it with images that conveyed brightness and sparkle, so I went with stars and lightning.
