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!

The Digital Dozen’s 5th Birthday – Balloons!

Hi everyone!

This is my twelfth month being a part of the Digital Dozen, so as soon as I’ve gotten through this week, I’ll have been a member for a year. The group has been going for a while longer though and I remember admiring them back when I started blogging 4 years ago. In fact, this month is the Digital Dozen’s 5th birthday! As far as I know, Cathy of More Nail Polish is the only current member who has been with the group since the very beginning, the rest of the members have changed quite a bit over those 5 years.

This week, we’re celebrating the Digital Dozen’s 5th birthday with our nail art!

Hi everyone!

As the saying goes, April showers bring May flowers – we’ve been having plenty of April showers, I’m just waiting on the May flowers! I decided to start a little early on my nails.

The Digital Dozen Does Get to Know Me: Gizmo-cat Water Marble!

Hi everyone!

It’s time for another installment of ‘get to know me’! If you were extra observant, you may have noticed that I didn’t post yesterday. As it happens, I’m having a particularly busy week in my ‘day job’ and I haven’t been able to finish all 5 looks for this week’s theme. I’ll probably be skipping another day as well. Let’s just call it a part of getting to know me!

I’ve dedicated today’s nail art to my beloved cat, Gizmo. Gizmo came into our lives a little over 2 years ago when my husband found him crying and hiding under my car, scared and hungry. He was still a baby, only about 2 and a half months old. Luckily, all he needed was some food and some love. He purred his way into our hearts and has stayed there ever since ­čÖé

Pink and Iridescent Festival Nail Art

Hi everyone!

If you’re around here much, you probably know that I don’t feel the urge to have pink nails all that often. When pink does make an appearance, it’s usually a smaller part within some nail art. But one day recently, I had the urge to go not just pink, but pink with an added iridescent topper. Meanwhile I was wondering what to do for today’s Crumpets Nail Tarts┬átheme of festivals/hippie travels. Once I had the photos done of these nails I realised that they could probably do for the festival theme.┬áPainted Fingertips | Pink and iridescent nail art

Hi everyone!

Today I have a fun skittlette to share with you. Ages ago I got Flormar┬áBlack Dot in a gift exchange and I can’t believe that I’ve never shared it with you on the blog! I decided to pair it with stamping and more glitter here.┬áPainted Fingertips | Blue triangle skittlette stamping

Geometric Double Stamping

Hi everyone!

Today I have some double stamping to share with you. I keep seeing amazing double-stamped nails, and it never quite seems to work out for me! I really like the colour combination I’ve used today though, and it certainly creates an interesting look.┬áPainted Fingertips | Geometric double stamping
