Stylised Christmas Tree | The Digital Dozen does Holo

Painted Fingertips | Stylised Christmas tree with holo flakes

Hi everyone!

It’s day 4 of the Digital Dozen does Holo! As always, this week is flying by. I feel like Digital Dozen weeks go faster than any other time! So far this week, I’ve shared a holo needle drag, some holo-on-holo rose stamping, and a Christmassy holo water marble.

Today I’ve kept the Christmassy theme going, although I’ve used a not-quite-traditional colour scheme. I really like the look I’ve done for today and I hope you’ll enjoy it too!

Abstract Floral | The Digital Dozen Does Inspired by Each Other

Painted Fingertips | Abstract Floral - Inspired by Polish Those Nails

Hi everyone!

It’s Digital Dozen week! This week’s theme is Inspired by Each Other. We were originally going to do something a bit different for the month of May, a rotation week where we’d each do a guest post on a different member’s blog each day of DD week, but sadly that didn’t work out, so inspired by each other it is. For my first look of the week, I’ve done an abstract floral inspired by this look by Marisa of Polish those Nails. (more…)

The Digital Dozen Does My Home – Jacarandas in Pretoria

Painted Fingertips | Jacaranda flower nail art - macro

Hi everyone!

As I mentioned in my snowy Minnesota home post earlier this week, I’m at an out-of-town conference this week so I wasn’t able to do all 5 Digital Dozen manicures for the ‘my home’ theme. This is the second one I was able to finish, and it’s for my childhood home. I grew up and spent most of the first 2 decades of my life in Pretoria, South Africa. Pretoria is known as the Jacaranda City for its many streets lined with Jacaranda trees. (more…)

Hi everyone!

It’s Digital Dozen week! This week’s theme is Throwback and I think it’s going to be a lot of fun.
