The Digital Dozen Does Mythical Creatures | Phoenix

Hi everyone!

It’s day 3 of the Digital Dozen does Mythical Creatures! Remember how I mentioned on Monday that dragons are always the first mythical creature that come to mind for me? Well, phoenix are rarely far behind. I love the whole concept of the phoenix, from its flaming body to its ability to resurrect. So today, I have done a phoenix-inspired drip marble.

The Digital Dozen Does Mythical Creatures | Fairy Nails

Hi everyone!

It’s day 2 of the Digital Dozen does Mythical Creatures! I am really loving what the other DD members have come up with so far – I’m looking forward to the rest of this week’s nail art! Yesterday, I started the theme off with some freehand dragon nail art. Today, I’ve gone for a far more delicate mythical creature – the fairy.

I have the start of something very exciting here on the blog today! This year, I’m going to be doing a monthly theme week here on the blog!

This post contains affiliate links.

Hi everyone!

It’s Digital Dozen week! This week’s theme is ‘All that Glitters’ and I decided to start the week off with both glittery polish and glittering crystals in my nail art. I’ve used some glittery polishes for stamping decals before, and they worked really well. I knew I had to do some glittery decals for this theme! I flipped through my stamping plates, and a pretty crystal image caught my eye – crystals glitter!

The Digital Dozen Does Futuristic: Jupiter Nails

Hi everyone!

It’s the final day of The Digital Dozen’s Futuristic week, and I’ve saved my favourite look for last! It was only my favourite by a small margin – I loved my metallic dipped fingers as well. The other looks I’ve shared so far this week were some Star Trek nails, holo and neon geometric nails, and chrome half-moon nails. Today, I have done some nails inspired by Jupiter!

The Digital Dozen’s Throwback Week: Love Nails

Hi everyone!

It’s day 2 of the Digital Dozen’s Throwback week and today I’m doing a throwback to these gorgeous love nails done by Sarah of 25 Sweetpeas back in February during the Digital Dozen’s Black week. The black theme coincided with Valentine’s Day so she decided to do some black and white love-themed nails, which I think were gorgeous. Here’s my version:Painted Fingertips | LOVE nails inspired by 25 Sweetpeas (more…)

Water Marble Wednesday: Layered Water Marble

Hi everyone!

It’s Water Marble Wednesday! Do you remember last week’s marble? Do you remember me mentioning that it would be important for this week, too? …Have you spotted it yet? Last week’s marble is actually the base for this week’s marble! I’ve done my first ever layered water marble. I’ve done marbles over gradients or other art bases before, but this is my first time layering two marbles!
