Textured Gradient | The Digital Dozen does Texture

Painted Fingertips | Textured gradient nail art

Hi everyone!

I got a little side-tracked and didn’t quite manage to get my fifth and final texture post up last week! I’m playing catch-up today with a sparkly textured gradient. In case you missed some of my other posts for this theme, I’ve shared a microbead sunset view, a criss-cross textured gradient, some elegant striped nails, and a very colourful textured dotticure.

Hi everyone!

It’s day 4 of the Digital Dozen does texture! So far this week, I’ve gotten my texture from textured polish, with a textured dotticure, an elegant textured stripe, and a textured gradient over striping tape patterns. Today, I’ve done something different, using microbeads to create texture on my nails!

Hi everyone!

It’s day 3 of the Digital Dozen does Texture! With just two more days to go, I am SO glad that I managed to get my looks done ahead of time this month. I’ve been so busy, it’s been all I can manage to just get the posts written up! So far this week, I’ve shared a colourful textured dotticure and an elegant accent stripe nail art. Today, I’ve combined textured polish with striping tape.

Hi everyone!

It’s Digital Dozen week! This week’s theme is texture. I used to be a huge fan of textured polish, but I haven’t used it as much over the past year or so. I’m not sure why, I just didn’t get around to using it much in nail art. I’m glad this week got me using my textured polishes again!

Rose Needle Drag

Hi everyone!

It seems like over the past couple of weeks, winter noticed that it hadn’t been around here all that much and it’s making up for lost time! First we had the icy polar vortex, and now this week we’ve just had one snowstorm after another. It seemed as though barely any snow had fallen for most of this winter, and now we’ve got at least a foot. It looks lovely on the tree branches and the fresh snow is soft, white and sparkly… but there’s always that part of me that’s just waiting for Spring! So, I have some floral nail art to share with you today.

Hi everyone!

Today I have a gorgeous soft gradient with a fun holo flake topper from Born Pretty Store. Holographic or glittery toppers are perfect to finish off gradients – they are great at making a gradient seem smoother.

Hi everyone!

I have a really good magnetic polish from Born Pretty Store to share with you today. With all the magnetics we’ve been seeing lately, I decided to try one of theirs to see how well it works. I chose one of their holographic chameleon magnetic polishes.

Hi everyone!

We’ve made it to the final day of the Digital Dozen does Marble! This theme has been wonderful. Lots of abstract swirls of colour and fun techniques! Marbled nails are fun to create and so gorgeous. I hope you’ve enjoyed this week as much as I have! In case you missed them, so far this week I’ve shared a realistic stone marble, a drip marble, a water marble, and a fiery needle drag. I’m rounding out the week with a watercolour marbled look.
