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.

Hi everyone!

I have a review of another Born Pretty Store stamping plate to share with you, plate BP-L063. This one is covered with cute animal images! There are some cats I know I’ll be using at some point, and monkeys, and elephants, and penguins – today I’ve gone with the dolphins and hedgehogs.

Hi everyone!

It has been so hot and humid the past couple of days here – something I never thought I’d be saying about Minnesota before I moved here! It looks like it might rain today so I’m hoping it’ll cool down just a little.

Today I have a review of another Born Pretty Store stamping plate, plate BP-L052, to share with you. Before I start showing you any of the nail art (and let me tell you right now that both looks I did are pretty great and you should at least look at this whole post!), a note about the plate itself. When I received this plate, several of the images were different than those shown on the site. Here is my photograph of the plate (excuse the reflections):

And, the plate as advertised on the site:

The plate still has a similar vibe and either version is beautiful, but do be aware of this before purchasing this plate. Now for the two stamped nail art looks I’ve created using this plate!

Water Marble Wednesday: Neon Pink and Yellow Spiral

Hi everyone!

It’s Water Marble Wednesday! Are you sick of my neon water marbles yet? I know, I know, it’s the third one in a row. I’ve just really enjoyed how beautifully the Pipe Dream Polish ANIV collection marbles! Don’t worry, I’ve got something different lined up for the next few water marble Wednesdays. For now, though, here’s a fun neon spiral marble!

Water Marble Wednesday: Neon Teal, Green and Purple

Hi everyone!

It’s Water Marble Wednesday! I hope you are still enjoying my Water Marble Wednesday series, I know I am! In fact, I’ve been enjoying marbling so much that I’m a couple of water marbles ahead of my blogging schedule – I had to pick and choose which one to post today! In the end, I decided on another neon water marble. I used a subset of the same polishes from last week’s marble, and went with a fun horizontal pattern.

Review: BP-L049 Born Pretty Store Stamping Plate

Hi everyone!

Can you believe it’s Monday already? That weekend went by in the blink of an eye! At least I have some fun nail art to share with you today. Today I am reviewing another Born Pretty Store stamping plate, plate BP-L049. I have actually already shared a manicure using one of the images from this plate, in my review of the pearl white stamping polish. Nothing on this plate was quite calling out to me to be used for decals or leadlighting, so instead I have two regular stamped looks to share with you today; I tried to be creative with the base and stamping colours instead.
