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 🙂

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 theme of festivals/hippie travels. Once I had the photos done of these nails I realised that they could probably do for the festival theme. Painted Fingertips | Pink and iridescent nail art

Hi everyone!

Today I have a fun skittlette to share with you. Ages ago I got Flormar Black 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. Painted 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. Painted Fingertips | Geometric double stamping
