The Digital Dozen Does Mythical Creatures | Basilisk

Hi everyone!

I managed to get my final look done for the Digital Dozen’s mythical creatures week, just one day late. Phew! So far this week, I’ve shared nail art looks inspired by dragons, fairies, phoenix, and unicorns. I had so much fun with this week’s theme, and honestly I think it’s been one of my best Digital Dozen weeks! The only look I didn’t absolutely LOVE was my unicorn one.

For today’s look, I needed to get something done in a hurry after my giant Moonflower stamping polish post set me a day behind. I looked through the pictures from the other Digital Dozen members this week and this basilisk look by Manis & Makeovers really stood out to me. My look turned out quite different from hers, but she definitely inspired me.

The Digital Dozen Does Mythical Creatures | Unicorns

Hi everyone!

I know, I know, I’m behind on Digital Dozen posts! I really love this theme so I’m going to try my best to get the last one done this weekend. For now, here is a quick stamped unicorn look. I don’t think it lives up to the other incredible unicorn looks posted by other Digital Dozen members this week, but at least it’s done. And, if you’re wondering why I’m a day behind, did you see my mega post yesterday with 10 stamped nail art looks? I reviewed 5 new stamping polishes and they’re all fantastic!

Back to today’s look – I actually did these about a month ago and hadn’t got around to posting them as I was on the fence about them. However, they are perfect for this theme, so I am finally sharing them with you.

Moonflower Polish | Vampy Cremes Stamping

Some items in this post were provided for honest review.

Hi everyone!

I am so excited to share this post with you! A short while ago, Nadia of Moonflower Polish approached me and asked me if I could showcase a few of her polishes on my blog. Of course I leapt at the opportunity! Most polishes made by Moonflower are intended as stamping polish, so of course they are perfect for me with all of the nail art I do. In fact, just the other day I was thinking that I needed something fresh in my stamping repertoire and purchased a few new plates. These stamping polishes were perfect to add to that and I think you will like them too!

Today I have 5 brand new Moonflower polishes to share, the Vampy Cremes. These are releasing tomorrow morning, 23 February, at 9 am EST on the Moonflower Polish site. They are all dark creme bases with complementary colour shifting shimmers. They will be priced at $8 for a 15 ml bottle, or $38 for the set of 5. They are also available in mini bottles at $5 each or $23 for the set of 5. Do note that since these are highly pigmented, they may cause staining of nails, skin, or stampers; however I personally have not had any issues with staining while using these as stamping polishes.

I have tested each of these stamping polishes over both a light and a dark colour, so there are no less than 10 stamped looks to follow! It is a long, picture-heavy post, but worth it. Keep on scrolling to see how amazing each of the stamping polishes looks!

Hi everyone!

I have some simple but lovely silver stamping to share with you today! I did this nail art a couple of months ago, back when I shared swatches of Supermoon Lacquer The Hound of Hades. I often like to add some stamping to a swatch, it’s a quick and easy way to create some pretty nail art!

The Digital Dozen Does All That Glitters: Glittering Crystals

This post contains affiliate links.

Hi everyone!

It’s Digital Dozen week! This week’s theme is ‘All that Glitters’ and I decided to start the week off with both glittery polish and glittering crystals in my nail art. I’ve used some glittery polishes for stamping decals before, and they worked really well. I knew I had to do some glittery decals for this theme! I flipped through my stamping plates, and a pretty crystal image caught my eye – crystals glitter!

Hi everyone!

As you may have gathered from the post title, I have two nail art looks to share with you today using a gorgeous blue holo stamping polish from Born Pretty Store. I am definitely going to be needing some more holographic stamping polishes in my life! There are 4 more colours available in the same grouping from Born Pretty Store, and I’d like to try them all if they all stamp as well as this one!

Christmas Drip Marble and Stamping

This post contains affiliate links.

Hi everyone!

Things have been quieter than usual around here – but I’m back with some Christmassy nail art! Last week I was away at a conference in New Orleans. I was supposed to get back on Sunday and I had a couple of posts planned for this week that I just needed to write up. Instead – I had a connection in Atlanta and I got stuck there due to the power failure at the airport! I only got back on Tuesday evening, and while I intended to get a blog post up on Wednesday, I was too tired out and just needed a break! I’m finally back, though, with a fun Christmas-themed drip marble.

Feathered Party Monarch

Hi everyone!

Remember Supermoon Party Monarch, the polish I swatched earlier this week? It’s available right now on the Polish Pickup site! Today I have some nail art to share with you featuring this pretty polish. I really liked the inspiration image behind this polish – so bright and vibrant! So, I decided to add a little nail art that was inspired by the same image.
