Cherry Blossoms | The Digital Dozen Does Inspired by Each Other

Hi everyone!

I’m back with a final very late addition to the Digital Dozen’s Inspired by Each Other theme. For today’s look, I was inspired by this pretty cherry blossom look by The Polished Koi. The blue gradient she did really drew me in, and the cherry blossoms finished me off!

Hi everyone!

I’m still playing catchup for The Digital Dozen’s inspired by each other theme – and getting even further behind. I’ve already done my fourth look for this theme, and I think I’m going to let number 5 go this month – I have some exciting swatches and more nail art to share with you next week!

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 Mythical Creatures | Fairy Nails

Hi everyone!

It’s day 2 of the Digital Dozen does Mythical Creatures! I am really loving what the other DD members have come up with so far – I’m looking forward to the rest of this week’s nail art! Yesterday, I started the theme off with some freehand dragon nail art. Today, I’ve gone for a far more delicate mythical creature – the fairy.

The Digital Dozen Does Mythical Creatures | Dragon Nails

Hi everyone!

It’s Digital Dozen week! This week’s theme is Mythical Creatures. I am so excited for this one – I love fantasy and the mythical creatures that go along with it. I also think I’ve done at least a couple of good nail art looks for this week that I am excited to share with you! For my first look of the week, I went with the first creature I always think of associated with anything fantastical or mythical – the dragon!

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’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.
