The Digital Dozen’s Throwback Week: Dragon Eye

Hi everyone!

It’s day 4 of the Digital Dozen’s Throwback theme and today I am sharing my version of these dragon nails shared by Cathy of More Nail Polish back in continents week. I love dragons and I love Cathy’s nail art, so it was perfect!

The Digital Dozen’s Throwback Week – Spacey Water Marble

Hi everyone!

It’s day 3 of the Digital Dozen’s Throwback week and today I’ve combined it with Water Marble Wednesday! I found this gorgeous water marble done by Serene of Copycat Claws. I loved the bright colous and the spacey theme so I decided to do my own version.

The Digital Dozen’s Throwback Week: Love Nails

Hi everyone!

It’s day 2 of the Digital Dozen’s Throwback week and today I’m doing a throwback to these gorgeous love nails done by Sarah of 25 Sweetpeas back in February during the Digital Dozen’s Black week. The black theme coincided with Valentine’s Day so she decided to do some black and white love-themed nails, which I think were gorgeous. Here’s my version:Painted Fingertips | LOVE nails inspired by 25 Sweetpeas (more…)

The Digital Dozen’s Throwback Week – Poison Dart Frog

Hi everyone!

It’s Digital Dozen week! This week’s theme is Throwback and I think it’s going to be a lot of fun. I really enjoy recreating pretty nail art from other bloggers and this is the perfect excuse to do so all week! I have looked through some of the past Digital Dozen prompts and picked some of my favourite looks done by the other members of the group to recreate this week.

The Digital Dozen Does Story Genres: Recipe Books

Hi everyone!

It’s day 5 of the Digital Dozen does story genres! So far this week, I’ve done romance, fantasy, horror, and mystery. For the final theme, I’ve gone with something a little different – in fact, I’m not even sure it counts as a genre, but I’m counting it for this theme. I’ve done recipe book inspired nails!

The Digital Dozen Does Story Genres: Mystery

Hi everyone!

It’s day 4 of the Digital Dozen does story genres and today I have some nails for the crime/mystery genre! So far this week, I’ve done romance, fantasy, and horror. I started running out of ideas after those three, but a little brainstorming made me think of a good old detective novel!

The Digital Dozen Does Continents: Pandas – Asia

Hi everyone!

It’s day 3 of the Digital Dozen Does Continents and today I’m back to a continent I’ve never set foot on – Asia! I almost chose Antarctica for today, but the cute penguin stamping image I wanted to use was being difficult. For whatever reason, I didn’t feel like freehanding penguins. Then it hit me – what else is cute and black and white and an icon of a continent? Pandas!

The Digital Dozen Does Continents: Dooie Vlei – Africa

Hi everyone!

It’s the second day of The Digital Dozen does Continents and today I’ve decided to go with the continent I grew up on – Africa. In case you didn’t know, I’m South African and I lived there for the first 25 years of my life. A few years ago, my husband and I took a holiday to the neighbouring country of Namibia. Much of Namibia is desert – the Namib Desert. We went to see the beautiful natural sights and one of the places we visited was the Dooie Vlei.
