Needle Drag | The Digital Dozen does Holo

Painted Fingertips | Needle drag and holo glitter - the Digital Dozen does holo

Hi everyone!

It’s Digital Dozen week! This month’s theme is Holo. It’s a pretty broad theme, so I’m sure we’ll be seeing a little of everything this week from Digital Dozen members. It was interesting for me to focus on using one particular finish of polish for all of my looks this week. I found myself searching through my drawers for all of my holo options, then seeing which shades would go well together and what types of nail art would work well with them.


Red and Gold Needle Drag

Painted Fingertips | Red and gold needle drag

Hi everyone!

I’ve had these pictures in my ‘ready to post’ folder for a couple of weeks and it seems they got forgotten there amidst the December chaos, so you’ll just have to look at Christmas-coloured nails in January.

Inspired by the Supernatural – Day 29 of the #31DC2014

Hi everyone!

Today’s theme for the 31 Day Challenge is Inspired by the Supernatural. I’ve stretched a bit to get mine within the theme, but too bad – I love what I’ve done!

I originally planned to stamp some little demons over a background of fire. Once I’d done the fire, I liked it so much that I didn’t want to add the demons any more… so now they’re just Hellfire nails. (more…)

Hi ladies!

Today is the second Tri-polish challenge day for October. This month’s colours are yellow, green and orange.

needle drag using essence colour & go flashy pumpkin, wanna be your sunshine, and we rock the greenAnd that’s what I did! My first ever needle drag! This is one of those techniques that for some reason, I didn’t think I’d like, so I put off trying it for ages. Now that I’ve tried it, I just might be hooked! It’s amazingly easy and makes some really pretty nail art!
