Freehand Floral | The Digital Dozen Does Tropical

Painted Fingertips | Freehand Floral for The Digital Dozen does Tropical

Hi everyone!

I’m back after a short unintended break from blogging, and it’s Digital Dozen week! I spent most of July TAing a field camp and so I couldn’t do nail art or blog, but I got some posts up for while I’d be away – and then when I got back, I was so busy catching up on everything else that I didn’t get a chance for blogging, until now. I’m excited to get back into the swing of things with this Digital Dozen week! The theme is tropical and I have some fun looks to share with you. To start off with, I have a leafy floral look.

Tropical Flowers | The Digital Dozen does In My Garden

Painted Fingertips | Tropical flower nail art - the Digital Dozen does In my Garden

Hi everyone!

It’s Digital Dozen week! You know what that means, lots of nail art from me and the other DD members all week! 🙂 This month’s theme is ‘in my garden’. I’ve interpreted it as things that might be in a garden in general, since I don’t have my own garden. I’ve had a lot of fun with this theme for the looks I’ve done so far and I’m looking forward to getting the last couple done and sharing them all with you! (more…)

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 story genres. What a fun theme! Also a tough one – trying to think of nail art ideas for an entire genre rather than just a single story! I might have to resort to using specific stories later in the week, but for now, I’m representing the genre of romance. I’ve gone with some quick but pretty stamping to celebrate this genre. (more…)

Hi everyone!

It’s day 4 of the Digital Dozen does Continents! I took a bit of a break from the freehand nail art I’ve done for the other days of this week with some stamping. I was trying to think about what could be used to represent Europe – combined with what I might find on a stamping plate – when I remembered that Holland is known for its beautiful fields of tulips! (more…)

The Digital Dozen Does Rainforests: Flowers

Hi everyone!

It’s day 3 of the Digital Dozen does rainforests, and it’s also Water Marble Wednesday! I managed to combine both this time around to create a rainforest-themed marbled nail art. For this one, I went with some simple flowers growing in the rainforest, stamped over a colourful water marbled base. (more…)

Hi everyone!

Today I have a review of another Born Pretty Store stamping polish to share with you. The only blue stamping polish I had was the very pale pastel I used here, so I decided it was time to get my hands on another blue. Today I’m sharing 2 nail art looks using Born Pretty stamping polish #284. (more…)
