Neon Night Sky | The Digital Dozen Does Look Up

Painted Fingertips | Neon starry stamping - The Digital Dozen does Look Up

Hi everyone!

It’s time for another Digital Dozen week! I got back just in time to take part in this one – I’ve spent the past 3 weeks on an epic road trip through the American desert Southwest! I had a great time, but it’s good to be home.

I’m doing my best to put together posts for this week, especially since I’ve missed the past couple of Digital Dozen themes. I realised halfway through my trip that DD week was right after I got back, so I searched through the handful of posts I had in drafts, and thankfully found one that could do for the first day of the theme. This month’s theme is ‘look up’ and we are supposed to look up and find inspiration in the first thing we see! I’m not sure how practical that is, or you might be seeing a lot of white ceiling-inspired looks – but I’ve at least been thinking about and observing the things I see when I look up.

The Digital Dozen Does Futuristic: Holo Neon Geometric Nails

Painted Fingertips | Holo nails stamped with neon circles

Hi everyone!

It’s day 4 of the Digital Dozen does Futuristic! So far this week, I’ve shared Star Trek nails, chrome half-moon nails, and metal-dipped fingers. For today’s look, I was thinking about the directions that a lot of movies take with futuristic fashion. Think the garish colours of capitol fashion in The Hunger Games, or the hard geometric lines, lights and metallic finishes of the fashion in Tron. I wasn’t inspired by any specific movie, but it was with these types of bright colours, geometric shapes, and metallic finishes in mind that I came up with today’s nail art look. (more…)

Hi everyone!

I’m back to finish off the week with one more Born Pretty Store product review. This time it is for a stamping plate that is perfect for Autumn – plate BP-156. This is a small round plate with 4 different leafy designs. I have actually used this same plate for the Fall look I shared with you earlier this week. Today I have manicures using 2 more of the designs on the plate – so there is just one more gorgeous leafy pattern on the plate that I haven’t tried yet. (more…)

Hi everyone!

It’s Water Marble Wednesday! Are you sick of my neon water marbles yet? I know, I know, it’s the third one in a row. I’ve just really enjoyed how beautifully the Pipe Dream Polish ANIV collection marbles! Don’t worry, I’ve got something different lined up for the next few water marble Wednesdays. For now, though, here’s a fun neon spiral marble! (more…)

Water Marble Wednesday: Neon Teal, Green and Purple

Hi everyone!

It’s Water Marble Wednesday! I hope you are still enjoying my Water Marble Wednesday series, I know I am! In fact, I’ve been enjoying marbling so much that I’m a couple of water marbles ahead of my blogging schedule – I had to pick and choose which one to post today! In the end, I decided on another neon water marble. I used a subset of the same polishes from last week’s marble, and went with a fun horizontal pattern. (more…)

Hi everyone!

Can you believe it’s Monday already? That weekend went by in the blink of an eye! At least I have some fun nail art to share with you today. Today I am reviewing another Born Pretty Store stamping plate, plate BP-L049. I have actually already shared a manicure using one of the images from this plate, in my review of the pearl white stamping polish. Nothing on this plate was quite calling out to me to be used for decals or leadlighting, so instead I have two regular stamped looks to share with you today; I tried to be creative with the base and stamping colours instead.
