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.

Stylised Christmas Tree | The Digital Dozen does Holo

Painted Fingertips | Stylised Christmas tree with holo flakes

Hi everyone!

It’s day 4 of the Digital Dozen does Holo! As always, this week is flying by. I feel like Digital Dozen weeks go faster than any other time! So far this week, I’ve shared a holo needle drag, some holo-on-holo rose stamping, and a Christmassy holo water marble.

Today I’ve kept the Christmassy theme going, although I’ve used a not-quite-traditional colour scheme. I really like the look I’ve done for today and I hope you’ll enjoy it too!

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.

Sheep Nails | The Digital Dozen Does White

Painted Fingertips | Sheep Nail Art - The Digital Dozen does White

Hi everyone!

It’s Digital Dozen week! This week’s theme is white. At first I didn’t like this theme at all – I was thinking that I’d have to do predominantly white, bridal-looking manicures all week. There’s nothing inherently wrong with that, but those types of looks just aren’t my usual style. Even for my own wedding, I wore turquoise nail polish! That made me dread the idea of an all-white week. That was until I had the idea to do nail art based on things that are white, rather than just making white the dominant colour. This meant that I could use plenty of colours, and I had fun coming up with things that are white! (more…)
