Today I have my final (late) Christmassy look for the Digital Dozen’s Christmas in July theme to share with you! Like my first look for the week, when I used pink and blue instead of red and green, I decided to use less Christmassy colours, but stick with seasonal imagery. I love purple, so I used multiple shades of purple for this look!
It’s day 2 of the Digital Dozen does Tropical! I’m really enjoying this theme. I’ve managed to get all 5 looks for the week done and I like all of them, I hope you will too! I already shared a tropical floral look yesterday, and today I’ve got some pineapple nails. I was thinking about different fruits that I could use for the tropical theme and my mind got stuck on pineapples. When I think of pineapple nail art, I always think of Sarah from 25Sweetpeas who is a big fan of pineapples and has done several fun nail arts featuring them. Of course I turned to a few of her past looks for inspiration! (more…)
I’m still playing catchup for The Digital Dozen’s inspired by each other theme – and getting even further behind. I’ve already done my fourth look for this theme, and I think I’m going to let number 5 go this month – I have some exciting swatches and more nail art to share with you next week! (more…)
Some items in this post were provided for honest review.
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! (more…)
It’s day 3 of the Digital Dozen does Mythical Creatures! Remember how I mentioned on Monday that dragons are always the first mythical creature that come to mind for me? Well, phoenix are rarely far behind. I love the whole concept of the phoenix, from its flaming body to its ability to resurrect. So today, I have done a phoenix-inspired drip marble. (more…)
It’s day 2 of the Digital Dozen does Mythical Creatures! I am really loving what the other DD members have come up with so far – I’m looking forward to the rest of this week’s nail art! Yesterday, I started the theme off with some freehand dragon nail art. Today, I’ve gone for a far more delicate mythical creature – the fairy. (more…)
I recently shared my Jupiter drip marble nail art with you, and not only did I absolutely love the outcome of the nail art, but I also really enjoyed the process of creating the drip marble. So, I decided to do another one! This one isn’t inspired by any cool NASA images, it’s just a random drip marble in deep, dark colours. (more…)
