Hi everyone!

I’m a little late, but here’s my fifth look for the Digital Dozen’s books week. So far this week, I’ve shared looks inspired by Garth Nix’s Old Kingdom books, colouring books, a saxophone method book, and George R. R. Martin’s A Game of Thrones. For my final look of the week, I decided to take inspiration from the book I’m currently reading: H.G Wells’ The Invisible Man.

Hi everyone!

It’s day 3 of the Digital Dozen does books! As usual, Digital Dozen week is flying by. So far this week, I’ve shared some Old Kingdom nail art, and a look inspired by a saxophone music book. Today’s look wasn’t inspired by a single specific book, but rather by colouring books in general.

Hi everyone!

It’s time for another Digital Dozen week! This week’s theme is books. There are so many wonderful options to choose from, although sometimes it can be hard to figure out what nail art to do to relate back to the book. For my first choice for the week, there was actually a pretty obvious nail art option. I decided to do some nail art inspired by Garth Nix’s Old Kingdom series – Sabriel, Lirael, Abhorsen, and the more recent additions Clariel and Goldenhand. These books were near the top of my list for this week, simply because the original trilogy were my favourite books as a teenager, and I still love them.

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 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!

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.
