The Old Kingdom | The Digital Dozen does Books

Painted Fingertips | Charter magic nail art - the Digital Dozen does books

Hi everyone!

It’s time for another Digital Dozen week! This week’s theme is books. There are so many wonderful options to choose from, although sometimes it can be hard to figure out what nail art to do to relate back to the book. For my first choice for the week, there was actually a pretty obvious nail art option. I decided to do some nail art inspired by Garth Nix’s Old Kingdom series – Sabriel, Lirael, Abhorsen, and the more recent additions Clariel and Goldenhand. These books were near the top of my list for this week, simply because the original trilogy were my favourite books as a teenager, and I still love them.

Hi everyone!

Can you believe it’s March already? February passed in a haze of snow here. We had the most snow ever recorded for the month of February! And we had even more today. Since it’s already March, that means it’s time for another Polish Pickup! The sale has already started so you can head over and check it out right away. Today I have swaches of the Aurora Lacquer shade to share with you. I’m showing this on its own and over a couple of different base polishes, so check out the full post!

Stone Fox | Baroness X

Painted Fingertips | Swatch - Baroness X Stone Fox

Hi everyone!

It’s a particularly busy time of year for me, so I’ve decided to clean out all of my drafts and share some swatches and nail art with you that for whatever reason, I hadn’t gotten around to posting. For most of them, it’s not that I didn’t like the looks, but rather that they got shunted aside for me to post press samples or Digital Dozen themed nail art and I didn’t have time to get additional posts up. Fortunately, they’re quite a blessing now and you will finally get a chance to see them!

I’m starting off with a swatch of Baroness X Stone Fox.
