The Digital Dozen Does Story Genres: Recipe Books

Hi everyone!

It’s day 5 of the Digital Dozen does story genres! So far this week, I’ve done romance, fantasy, horror, and mystery. For the final theme, I’ve gone with something a little different – in fact, I’m not even sure it counts as a genre, but I’m counting it for this theme. I’ve done recipe book inspired nails!

The Digital Dozen Does Story Genres: Mystery

Hi everyone!

It’s day 4 of the Digital Dozen does story genres and today I have some nails for the crime/mystery genre! So far this week, I’ve done romance, fantasy, and horror. I started running out of ideas after those three, but a little brainstorming made me think of a good old detective novel!

Hi everyone!

It’s day 3 of the Digital Dozen Does story genres and it’s also Water Marble Wednesday! I have managed to combine both with an eerie dripping blood water marble to represent the horror genre.

Hi everyone!

It’s Digital Dozen week! This week’s theme is story genres. What a fun theme! Also a tough one – trying to think of nail art ideas for an entire genre rather than just a single story! I might have to resort to using specific stories later in the week, but for now, I’m representing the genre of romance. I’ve gone with some quick but pretty stamping to celebrate this genre.

Hi everyone!

It’s day 4 of the Digital Dozen does Continents! I took a bit of a break from the freehand nail art I’ve done for the other days of this week with some stamping. I was trying to think about what could be used to represent Europe – combined with what I might find on a stamping plate – when I remembered that Holland is known for its beautiful fields of tulips!

The Digital Dozen Does Continents: Pandas – Asia

Hi everyone!

It’s day 3 of the Digital Dozen Does Continents and today I’m back to a continent I’ve never set foot on – Asia! I almost chose Antarctica for today, but the cute penguin stamping image I wanted to use was being difficult. For whatever reason, I didn’t feel like freehanding penguins. Then it hit me – what else is cute and black and white and an icon of a continent? Pandas!

The Digital Dozen Does Continents: Dooie Vlei – Africa

Hi everyone!

It’s the second day of The Digital Dozen does Continents and today I’ve decided to go with the continent I grew up on – Africa. In case you didn’t know, I’m South African and I lived there for the first 25 years of my life. A few years ago, my husband and I took a holiday to the neighbouring country of Namibia. Much of Namibia is desert – the Namib Desert. We went to see the beautiful natural sights and one of the places we visited was the Dooie Vlei.
