Abstract Floral | The Digital Dozen Does Inspired by Each Other

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.

The Digital Dozen Does My Home – Jacarandas in Pretoria

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.

The Digital Dozen Does Story Genres: Romance

This post contains affiliate links.

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.

The Digital Dozen Does Continents: Tulips – Europe

This post contains affiliate links.

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!

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.

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.Painted Fingertips | Supermoon I Warned You with blue floral stamping

The Digital Dozen Does Art: Elspeth McLean’s Lotus Family of Three

Hi everyone!

It’s Day 5 of The Digital Dozen Does Art! I made it – I’m posting later than usual, but it’s still Friday! I only found an artwork that I found inspiring and that I could figure out a good nail art composition for last night, so this one ended up a little more last-minute. I really loved this theme but I’m glad it’s over for now – as the saying goes, variety is the spice of life, and I’m now ready for some simple, quick nail art 🙂Painted Fingertips | The Digital Dozen Does Art - Elspeth McLean Lotus Family of Three (more…)
