Needle Drag | The Digital Dozen does Holo

Painted Fingertips | Needle drag and holo glitter - the Digital Dozen does holo

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.

Textured Roses

Painted Fingertips | Textured rose nail art

Hi everyone!

Back in September, I unfortunately missed Digital Dozen week. I really liked the theme, which was ‘recreating your first blog posts’, and I was so sorry that I wasn’t able to take part! I did have one look that was ready to go and so I am finally sharing it with you today. It’s a simple yet effective textured rose look.

Strings of Hearts

Painted Fingertips | Black and red strings of hearts

Hi everyone!

I have a simple but lovely look to share with you today. I don’t use nail decals or stencils very often, but I used some here together with two beautiful polishes from Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer to create a look that would be perfect for Christmas, Valentine’s Day, or really any time.

Glowing Abstract Stamping

Painted Fingertips | Glowing nail powder over black and white stamping

Hi everyone!

Today I have a look to share where I used some of my multichrome nail powder in an interesting way. Since some of these powders look so different over a black vs a white base, I realised that I could create a cool effect by simply starting with a base of black and white stamping, and then adding the powder over everything.

Hi everyone!

For those of you in the US, I hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving! I did, and I’m still working on some tasty leftover pie. I made my first ever pecan pie and fortunately, it was a success! I also brought home some pumpkin pie from our kind hosts and both have been delicious.

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 🙂

Owls | The Digital Dozen does Look Up

Painted Fingertips | Owl stamping - the Digital Dozen does look up

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.
