Tropical Flowers | The Digital Dozen does In My Garden

Painted Fingertips | Tropical flower nail art - the Digital Dozen does In my Garden

Hi everyone!

It’s Digital Dozen week! You know what that means, lots of nail art from me and the other DD members all week! 🙂 This month’s theme is ‘in my garden’. I’ve interpreted it as things that might be in a garden in general, since I don’t have my own garden. I’ve had a lot of fun with this theme for the looks I’ve done so far and I’m looking forward to getting the last couple done and sharing them all with you! (more…)

The Digital Dozen Does Futuristic: Turquoise and Chrome Half Moon

Hi everyone!

One of the things I was thinking about with this week’s Futuristic theme was: how will people do their nails in the future? There was a time when red or neutral nail polish was about all you’d see; half moons were huge in the 30s, and the French manicure was all the rage in the 80s – and in some circles, it’s still all the rage. These days, you can get any and every colour, and a lot more nail art is being done – although most people still tend to go for a plain colour.

In the future, I figured, maybe a metallic chrome finish will be all the rage. And, as fashions tend to do, maybe the half moon fashion will come around again, just with a bit of a twist! This is what I came up with: (more…)

My Wedding Day Flowers – The Digital Dozen Does Paper

Painted Fingertips | Flowers for The Digital Dozen does Paper

Hi everyone!

It’s day 5 of the Digital Dozen does Paper! So far this week, I’ve done paper planes, love letters, wrapping paper, and colouring books.

I was really having a hard time coming up with an idea for the final day of The Digital Dozen does Paper when suddenly it occurred to me. There was one day in my life on which paper had an unusual significance. Don’t get me wrong, paper is important on many days – we use it to learn, to immerse ourselves in stories, to express ourselves. But on this one day, paper was a part of the celebration of my husband and I choosing a life together – my wedding day! I decided that rather than buying expensive flowers which would only wilt and die, I’d make my own flowers for my and my bridesmaid’s bouquets, as well as all of the table decor – from paper! In fact, I posted a little about the process of making the flowers. I absolutely loved them and today’s nail art is inspired by those paper flowers that I painstakingly folded. (more…)

Distressed and Stamped Nails

Hi everyone!

Today I have one from the stash to share with you – I did these nails months ago but never got around to posting them. I didn’t quite love the nail art so it always seemed like there was something else to post first. I still think they’re fun, though, so I’m glad I’m finally getting around to sharing them with you!
