The Digital Dozen Does Stamping | Plate BeautyBigBang 10

Painted Fingertips | Flower stamping decals with plate BeautyBigBang10 - The Digital Dozen does Stamping

Hi everyone!

It’s Digital Dozen week! Can you believe it’s already time again? Thanks to the February week being a little later in the month than usual, this one came up so quickly! I have to say that I have had a crazy couple of weeks and didn’t get much chance to prepare for this week. On top of that, I’m sick with a miserable cold and don’t really feel like doing anything. All that considered, I’ve decided to combine my Digital Dozen posts this week with some stamping polish and plate reviews that I need to get posted. I don’t usually like to combine but I have to get these up anyway, and technically they are perfect for the theme. So, today’s Digital Dozen stamping post comes in the form of a review of Beauty Big Bang stamping plate 10. (more…)

Painted Fingertips | Northern Star Polish - Family Secrets

Hi everyone!

Can you believe that it’s already almost the end of February? In a couple of days, it’ll be March, and with March comes the books theme for Polish Pickup! The books theme was a long time coming, almost making it in over the past couple of months and then just being voted out. Finally, the books theme won, and I for one am really excited about it! I have been seeing a few books that I know and enjoy, and others that I haven’t read before – along with lots of pretty polish!

If Polish Pickup is new to you, here’s how it works: prior to each month’s Polish Pickup weekend, there is a period for nominations, and then voting for a theme. These are announced in the Polish Pickup Pack Facebook group, if you’d like to keep up with them there. Once a theme has been selected, participating makers all make a nail polish or other nail care and related items according to the theme. These are revealed in the weeks leading up to the pickup weekend. Finally, on the first weekend of the month, all of the items are available for purchase in one convenient shop. For March, the shop opens at 11 am EST on March 2 and is open for three days, until March 5. That is the only time that this nail polish is available! Enough talk – time for swatches! (more…)
