Hi everyone!

It’s Digital Dozen week! This month’s theme is Holo. It’s a pretty broad theme, so I’m sure we’ll be seeing a little of everything this week from Digital Dozen members. It was interesting for me to focus on using one particular finish of polish for all of my looks this week. I found myself searching through my drawers for all of my holo options, then seeing which shades would go well together and what types of nail art would work well with them.

Aliens | The Digital Dozen does Look Up

Painted Fingertips | Pink aliens - the Digital Dozen does Look Up

Hi everyone!

I decided to finish up the Digital Dozen’s Look Up theme with something I haven’t actually seen… but imagine if you went outside right now, looked up, and saw a sky filled with flying saucers and an alien looking down at you! It may be a little far-fetched, but who knows! Besides, I really wanted to use these stamping images 🙂

Hi everyone!

It’s day 4 of the Digital Dozen does Look Up. This week is flying by! I can’t believe it’s already Thursday. So far this week, I’ve shared a neon night sky, some foiled snowflakes, and holo galaxy nails. Today I have one that I don’t regularly see when I look up, but it would be fun if I did! I’ve stamped some cute little owls.

Hi everyone!

It’s day 3 of The Digital Dozen does Look Up. So far this week, I’ve shared a neon night sky and some foiled snowflakes. I’m kind of repeating the night sky idea today with some holographic galaxy nails. I try not to do similar themes twice in one Digital Dozen week, but what can I say, I’ve spent the past 3 weeks camping! I spent a lot of time looking up at the night sky. Besides, today’s look is so different from Monday’s that I think it’s okay.

Hi everyone!

It’s day 2 of the Digital Dozen does ‘look up’. Today’s look is more seasonal and it’s something I’ve been seeing already here in Minnesota – snow!

Hi everyone!

It’s time for another Digital Dozen week! I got back just in time to take part in this one – I’ve spent the past 3 weeks on an epic road trip through the American desert Southwest! I had a great time, but it’s good to be home.

I’m doing my best to put together posts for this week, especially since I’ve missed the past couple of Digital Dozen themes. I realised halfway through my trip that DD week was right after I got back, so I searched through the handful of posts I had in drafts, and thankfully found one that could do for the first day of the theme. This month’s theme is ‘look up’ and we are supposed to look up and find inspiration in the first thing we see! I’m not sure how practical that is, or you might be seeing a lot of white ceiling-inspired looks – but I’ve at least been thinking about and observing the things I see when I look up.

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…)
