Thermal Flowers – The Digital Dozen Does Rainforests

Hi everyone!

It’s Digital Dozen week! This week’s theme is rainforests and I’m sure we’re going to see some really cute critters and beautiful flowers from the group. I’ve started off with your basic floral manicure today. I can’t wait to show you some of the nail art I’ve done for later in the week, I think this is going to be a good week!

The Digital Dozen Does Colour Contrast Day 3: Red and Green

Hi everyone!

It’s day 3 of the Digital Dozen does colour contrasts week and today I’m going with the third ‘obvious’ contrast – red and green! I’ve already shown you my blue and orange and purple and neon yellow nails. We actually had a bit of a discussion in the Digital Dozen group about how to avoid making red and green look too Christmassy, I think I managed it though 🙂Painted Fingertips | The Digital Dozen Does Contrast - green with red flowers

Twin Nails: One Stroke Flowers with For the Love of Nail Art

Hi everyone!

Today I am doing a twin post with Siobhan from For the Love of Nail Art. When she suggested we do a twin post, I suggested flowers and then she suggested one stroke, so here we are! You can check out her post over here. This was her first time doing one stroke and I think you’ll agree she did an amazing job – especially when you remember the disaster that was my first one stroke attempt!

One-Stroke Roses for day 22 of the 31 Day Challenge

Hi everyone!

Today’s theme in the 31 Day Challenge is ‘Inspired by a Song’. This isn’t really one of my favourite themes as I don’t think most songs can be represented very well by a picture so I have trouble deciding on my inspiration. I decided to take an easy way out (though not an easy technique) and chose Bon Jovi’s Bed of Roses for my inspiration.

Purple one-stroke nail art

Hi everyone!

Last week I showed you my first attempt at one-stroke nail art. It was a bit of a fail but I decided to try again. This time I didn’t try using only one colour again – I think that actually made it harder although it seemed easier to use just one colour. I watched several different tutorials before trying this. I think it came out a lot better than my first attempt! nail-addict-by-tip-top-synergy-acrylic-paint-purple-one-stroke (more…)
