The Digital Dozen Does Futuristic: Turquoise and Chrome Half Moon

This post contains affiliate links.

Hi everyone!

One of the things I was thinking about with this week’s Futuristic theme was: how will people do their nails in the future? There was a time when red or neutral nail polish was about all you’d see; half moons were huge in the 30s, and the French manicure was all the rage in the 80s – and in some circles, it’s still all the rage. These days, you can get any and every colour, and a lot more nail art is being done – although most people still tend to go for a plain colour.

In the future, I figured, maybe a metallic chrome finish will be all the rage. And, as fashions tend to do, maybe the half moon fashion will come around again, just with a bit of a twist! This is what I came up with:

The Digital Dozen Does Futuristic: Star Trek Nails

Hi everyone!

It’s Digital Dozen week! This week’s theme is Futuristic and I am so excited for it! I think this might be the first time I have actually finished all five looks ahead of time – I just had so many fun ideas for this theme! For the first one, I have done some nail art inspired by one of my favourite series – Star Trek.

Hi everyone!

Remember the pink holo chrome powder I showed you a couple of weeks ago? Here it is again with added starry and lightning-y stamping! The intensity of the chrome finish made me want to stamp it with images that conveyed brightness and sparkle, so I went with stars and lightning.

Hi everyone!

It’s almost Halloween and I finally have some Halloween nail art to share with you! Halloween is such a perfect time to do themed nail art and I just didn’t get a chance this year until now. I’ve done plenty of Halloween looks in previous years so check them out! Today I have some cute little ghosts and bats over a stunning multichrome flake base.

Hi everyone!

I’m back to finish off the week with one more Born Pretty Store product review. This time it is for a stamping plate that is perfect for Autumn – plate BP-156. This is a small round plate with 4 different leafy designs. I have actually used this same plate for the Fall look I shared with you earlier this week. Today I have manicures using 2 more of the designs on the plate – so there is just one more gorgeous leafy pattern on the plate that I haven’t tried yet.

Hi everyone!

Today I have a new stamping polish from Born Pretty Store to share with you. As you probably are aware by now, I really like this line of stamping polishes from them, and they keep extending the colour lineup. I really love having so many different colours of realiable stamping polishes – it definitely beats the days I only had black and white! So with that in mind, here is Born Pretty Store stamping polish #95.

The Digital Dozen’s Throwback Week: Dots and More Dots!

Hi everyone!

It’s the final day of The Digital Dozen’s Throwback week – I’ve made it! I’ve had a very busy week and I wasn’t sure I’d get this last post done on time, but it’s here, and I also really love today’s nail art! In case you’ve missed my other posts this week, I decided to interpret the Throwback theme by recreating past nail art looks done in Digital Dozen theme weeks by other Digital Dozen members. So far this week, I’ve done poison dart frog nails inspired by Manis & Makeovers, LOVE nails inspired by 25 Sweetpeas, a spacey water marble inspired by Copycat Claws, and dragon eye nails inspired by More Nail Polish. Although I’ve liked every one of those looks, today’s is my favourite for the week!
