Hi everyone!

It’s the final day of The Digital Dozen does tropical! Digital Dozen weeks always just fly by. I’ve really enjoyed this theme; so far this week, I’ve shared pineapple nails, a tropical floral, a neon sunset, and a watermelon water marble. I decided to finish the look off with some flamingo nail art. Flamingos have been a really popular subject this week, I think about 4 or 5 of the other Digital Dozen ladies have already done flamingo looks. They really are perfect for the theme, and with their unique pink colour and interesting shapes they are ideal for nail art. (more…)

Watermelon Water Marble | The Digital Dozen Does Tropical

Painted Fingertips | Watermelon water marble for the Digital Dozen does Tropical

Hi everyone!

It’s day 3 of the Digital Dozen’s tropical week, and it’s also Water Marble Wednesday! So far this week, I’ve shared a tropical floral look and some pineapple nails. I stuck with the tropical fruits today with a watermelon water marble. I’m glad I figured out a way to do a water marble for the tropical theme, it’s always fun to figure out ways to make water marbles work for a specific theme. I’ve seen several other watermelon water marbles before but it’s the first time I’ve tried to do a watermelon. (more…)

Hi everyone!

It’s day 2 of the Digital Dozen does Tropical! I’m really enjoying this theme. I’ve managed to get all 5 looks for the week done and I like all of them, I hope you will too! I already shared a tropical floral look yesterday, and today I’ve got some pineapple nails. I was thinking about different fruits that I could use for the tropical theme and my mind got stuck on pineapples. When I think of pineapple nail art, I always think of Sarah from 25Sweetpeas who is a big fan of pineapples and has done several fun nail arts featuring them. Of course I turned to a few of her past looks for inspiration! (more…)

Hi everyone!

I’m back after a short unintended break from blogging, and it’s Digital Dozen week! I spent most of July TAing a field camp and so I couldn’t do nail art or blog, but I got some posts up for while I’d be away – and then when I got back, I was so busy catching up on everything else that I didn’t get a chance for blogging, until now. I’m excited to get back into the swing of things with this Digital Dozen week! The theme is tropical and I have some fun looks to share with you. To start off with, I have a leafy floral look.

Soap Bubbles | The Digital Dozen Does White

Painted Fingertips | Soap bubble nail art - The Digital Dozen does White

Hi everyone!

It’s day 3 of the Digital Dozen does white, and as you can see, I’ve done something really different for today’s look. As I was listing off things that are white to brainstorm nail art ideas for this week, one of the things I noted down was soap bubbles. At first, I wanted to paint individual bubbles, similar to the water drops I did in this look. However, I soon realised that these are more rainbow than white. I felt sure there must be a way to get a foaming soap bubble look, and some searching led me to this tutorial on Brijit’s Digits. (more…)

Hi everyone!

It’s day 2 of The Digital Dozen does white – and I have my least-white look of the week to share! At least, it’s probably my least white look; I haven’t finished the last one yet so we’ll see. Yesterday, I shared some cute fluffy sheep nail art. Today, I’ve once again gone with white subject matter in the form of white doves – although the nail art itself contains only a little of the colour white. I also wound up doing animals for the second time this week, which was fun. (more…)

Hi everyone!

It’s Digital Dozen week! This week’s theme is white. At first I didn’t like this theme at all – I was thinking that I’d have to do predominantly white, bridal-looking manicures all week. There’s nothing inherently wrong with that, but those types of looks just aren’t my usual style. Even for my own wedding, I wore turquoise nail polish! That made me dread the idea of an all-white week. That was until I had the idea to do nail art based on things that are white, rather than just making white the dominant colour. This meant that I could use plenty of colours, and I had fun coming up with things that are white! (more…)

Silver Flowers

Hi everyone!

The week before last was the Digital Dozen’s ‘In My Garden’ week and I only managed to get 4 out of 5 nail art looks posted. I had really hoped to get the fifth one up in time, but just didn’t quite make it! I actually had these nails done and photographed, but wasn’t able to get the photos edited and the post ready in time to share it with you – so I am sharing it now instead. I did have a fun reason for not getting it done – my husband and I took a short mini-holiday to visit NYC for a few days! It was a great time and I got to see all the touristy sights. (more…)
