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.

31DC2016 Day 28: Inspired by the US flag

Painted Fingertips | Nails inspired by the US flag for the #31DC2016

Hi everyone!

Today’s theme for the 31 Day Challenge is ‘inspired by a flag’. This has never been a very popular theme of the challenge; to me it seems oddly specific compared to most of the other themes. The American flag is usually popular, firstly since so many bloggers are from the US and secondly because the vibrant colours and the stars and stripes both lend themselves to nail art. I’ve never gone in that direction before, until today! (more…)

#5minutenailart: Stars and Neptune

Painted Fingertips | #5minutenailart: glow in the dark stars

Hi everyone!

I’m not sure what happened, but it’s been a whole month since my last 5 minute nail art post! I’ve just had so many other things to share with you recently. If you’re not sure what this is about, check out my first 5 minute nail art post. It’s pretty self explanatory though – I just start with a plain, base colour manicure, then have a maximum of 5 minutes to turn it into nail art.  (more…)
