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 My Home – Snowy Winters in Minnesota

Hi everyone!

It’s Digital Dozen week! This week’s theme is ‘my home’. Unfortunately, I won’t be able to participate every day this week, as I am out of town at a conference and didn’t get time to finish all 5 nail art looks. I will have a couple to share, though, and you can check out the other Digital Dozen member’s blogs for more nail art looks this week! We also just had a few new members join the group – I think most are only starting next month, but we might have a couple of new faces joining in this month already!

Mermaid Glitter Nails

Some items in this post were provided for review.

Hi everyone!

I’ve shown you quite a few different nail powders from Beauty Big Bang; today I have a different product from them to share with you. These are listed as their fish scale nail sequins and to me they just screamed mermaid glitter!

#5minutenailart – Glitter and Stamping

Some items in this post were previously provided for review. This post contains affiliate links.

Hi everyone!

If you’ve noticed that I haven’t been posting quite as much lately, it’s because I’ve been exceptionally busy over the past few weeks. With this in mind, I was trying to throw something together for a post today when I realised it was the perfect reason to do another #5minutenailart post! It has been a while since I’ve done one of these, but a lack of time is exactly why I came up with the idea in the first place. I explained all that in my first #5minutenailart post last year. Basically, I force myself to do some quick nail art by allowing only 5 minutes to turn a plain-colour manicure into some fun nail art.

The Digital Dozen’s 5th Birthday – Sprinkles

Hi everyone!

The Digital Dozen is turning 5 this month and we’re celebrating all week! It’s also a year since I joined the elite nail art group, so it’s a good time to celebrate. In case you missed it, I started off the week yesterday with some bright and colourful balloons. Today I’m continuing in the party vibe with some fun sprinkles.

The Digital Dozen’s 5th Birthday – Balloons!

Hi everyone!

This is my twelfth month being a part of the Digital Dozen, so as soon as I’ve gotten through this week, I’ll have been a member for a year. The group has been going for a while longer though and I remember admiring them back when I started blogging 4 years ago. In fact, this month is the Digital Dozen’s 5th birthday! As far as I know, Cathy of More Nail Polish is the only current member who has been with the group since the very beginning, the rest of the members have changed quite a bit over those 5 years.

This week, we’re celebrating the Digital Dozen’s 5th birthday with our nail art!

Hi everyone!

I have a review of another Born Pretty Store product to share with you today. These are their iridescent loose glitters, which come in several different shapes: butterflies, stars, round, and a mix which appears to also include hearts. I’ve tried out the round glitters which includes three different sizes.
