The Digital Dozen Does Black: Pink Crisscross

This post contains affiliate links.

Hi everyone!

Can you believe it’s already day 4 of the Digital Dozen Does Black? This week is going by so fast! If you missed my previous posts this week, check out day 1, day 2, and my personal favourite day 3. Last night I finished off my final look for tomorrow’s DD does black post. I was showing it off to my husband when he commented that I’d done an awful lot of black manicures lately! Duh – it’s Digital Dozen black week! I had even asked him for some ideas for the last look the night before, so it’s not like he didn’t know about it 🙂

Today I decided to bring in some texture with the black and of course, you know by now that my favourite thing to use together with texture is tape. That meant I ended up creating a fun pink and black crisscross look. Painted Fingertips | Pink crisscross for the Digital Dozen Does Black (more…)

The Neverending Pile Challenge: Discontinued Polish

Hi everyone!

Today’s theme in the Neverending Pile Challenge is a discontinued polish. I’m not really someone who will go to great lengths to get my hands on a specific polish just because it’s limited edition or something – I tend to think if you like a polish, you should be able to get it. Of course, I do buy limited editions too when I like them! This particular one I found on a sale rack at Clicks not long after I started getting into nail polish. I can’t find a lot of info on it so I’m not sure if it was available in other countries as well or not. Here it is (along with some nail art) – Yardley Glitter Glam Couture Cocktail. nail-art-yardley-couture-cocktail-tape-studs-black-green-brown (more…)

Nail Art A-Go-Go Challenge Day 24 – Abstract

Hi everyone!

Today’s theme for the Nail Art A-Go-Go Challenge is abstract. When I saw Gnarly Gnails’ post for day 22 – surrealism – I loved it so much that I had to recreate it for today.

Tape mani Monday: Textured triangles over neons

Hi everyone!

So another Monday has rolled around… UGH! The good news is I have another manicure which I love to show you, once again using my trusty striping tape.

I started off by creating more-or-less triangular shapes using some neon colours – Nails Inc Kensington Park Road (blue) and Holland Park (purple), L.A.
