Oh hello lovelies! Look who is just barely squeezing their post in before midnight…again…meh. My blogging schedule is weird this week, because I didn’t get to do any prep last weekend. So, you guys will have to bear with me over the next couple of days while I play catch up. This weekend is a three day one, and I plan on getting my blogging (and life) back together. Anyways. It’s Thursday which means I have my fourth black manicure to share with you guys for the Digit-al Dozen!

Here is what I used:

Yeah, my whole plan of sticking to manicures with a black base for this week was abandoned haha. In my defense, there is a little army of new polishes sitting on my desk and they are all begging to get used. Fair Maiden Polish caught my eye this time, so that’s what I used! Seriously, though. Look at those flakies! The nail art over top was inspired by this print that was created by Sharon Cummings.

  1. Start by applying three coats of Hemera.
  2. Once the base is dry, use black acrylic paint and a detail brush to add on the pattern.
  3. Clean up.
  4. Then finish with a coat of Tonic Topper.

So, what do you guys think? I really liked wearing these! But, I’m bummed about how much of the base polish got covered. Hemera is a delicate polish with a stunning purple shimmer that got lost behind the black nail art. If I ever recreate this design, I’ll have to try harder to make the line work a little bit thinner. But, let me know what you think!

Ello lovelies! It is so late…whoops. I’m going to try and keep this post short because I want to get it up before the day is over. But, I have my third nail art look for the Digit-al Dozen‘s black week to share with you guysSo, let’s get to it!

Here is what I used:

It doesn’t really look like it, but I swear that there is nail art here guys haha! It’s just super, super, SUPER subtle. A bunch of the other girls in the group (don’t forget to check out the inLinkz below to visit their blogs) have been doing some really lovely black on black nail art, so I decided to do my take on it! The inspiration for this came from one of these patterns by PixelBuddha.

nails, nail art, nail polish, black, indie polish, glitter, polish those nails,

  1. Start by applying three coats of Hocus Pocus.
  2. Then add a layer of Make A Spectacle on top.
  3. Once the base is dry, use acrylic paint and a detail brush to add on the pattern.
  4. Clean up.
  5. Finish with a coat of Tonic Topper.

And, that’s a wrap. Most of my looks this week have been really simple, since I didn’t get the chance to do any of my Digit-al Dozen manicures before hand (and I hate going to work with mismatched nail art.) With that being said though, I’m still really digging how these turned out! It’s been a while since I’ve worn a glitter bomb, so it was fun to get to wear this manicure for a little bit.

Thank you guys so, so much for reading! Hopefully, tomorrow’s nail art will be up on the blog a little earlier than today. But, check back tomorrow to see if it actually happens haha. I appreciate you all for putting up with my nonsense 😀

Good evening lovelies! We’re only two days into this week, and I’m already *just* squeezing my manicures in under the deadline. Today has been a really long day, so I’m moving a little slowly when it comes to blogging. But, it’s time for me to show you guys my second manicure for the Digit-al Dozen‘s black week. So, get excited and scroll onto to the nail art!

Here is what I used:

In yesterday’s post, I said my plan for this week was to do all my manicures with black bases…and yeah. Guess who did a fantastic job at sticking to that? High five to me haha! In my defense, this pattern by Zimmermann caught my eye and it basically begged me to put it on my nails. Which as you can see, I gave in and used it as my inspiration. And yes, that is a true story 😛

indie polish, nails, nail art, nail polish, black, silver, holo, don deeva, polish those nails, abstract,

  1. Start by applying three coats of Big Lights Will Inspire You.
  2. Once the base is dry, use acrylic paint and a detail brush to add on the pattern.
  3. Clean up.
  4. Finish with a coat of Tonic Topper.

So, that’s a wrap! It’s safe to say that I’m infatuated with this look and will most likely recreate it in the future. I’m loving how the silver holo contrasts against the black art here, but this print would look good in a ton of different color combinations! Which can we take a minute to discuss the silver base? This is my first polish from Don Deeva, but dang! It packs a punch! You need to go take a little sneak peek at the macro down below, because the polish is absolutely stunning. And while you’re down there, you should leave me a comment with your thoughts!

Ello again lovelies! I mentioned in my earlier post that this is a Digit-al Dozen week, so I’m back with my first look. This month we’re not tackling a theme, but instead the color black! It’s a really open prompt, so I’m excited to see what everyone comes up with. Anyways, let’s get to the nail art!

Here is what I used:

I wasn’t hundred percent positive on how to tackle this theme, but I think my plan for the week is to do all my nail art over a black base. Maybe? This is actually the only look I have done so far, so we’re going to have to see how it plays out. But this nail art was inspired by this pattern that I came across on Designinspiration.

nails, nail art, nail polish, black, squiggles, polish those nails, indie polish

  1. Start by applying one coat of Black Matte.
  2. Then apply liquid latex all around your nails.
  3. Once that’s dry, using the saran wrap technique add on Starry Night, Dorothy and Queen Of The Night (press sample.)
  4. Peel off the latex / clean up.
  5. Use acrylic paint and a detail brush to add on the pattern.
  6. Clean up.
  7. Finish with a coat of Tonic Topper.

And, that’s a wrap! I’m really digging this look, so I’m excited to rock it today. The saran wrap technique is one of my favorite ways to create a base for nail art and this subtle one turned out particularly lovely. But, I want to know what you think! Leave me a comment down below. Also, what would you do for this theme? I need some ideas haha 😛

Hello lovelies! It’s only been four days since my last post, but man, that feels like it was so long ago! Things on the blog this week will be a bit hectic and all over the place, because it’s a Digit-al Dozen week and I only have one look done so far. This weekend did not go as I planned and I’ve spent a good chunk of it working. But, I’m really going to try and keep up with everything! My posts probably will be going up later at night, but you guys will still get to see a bunch of cool nail art. Anyways, let’s kick this week off with some moody conversation hearts!

Here is what I used:

Last Friday, the Nail Crazies Unite group got together and shared their anti-valentine manicures. I’m obviously a little late with mine, but here it is! Sarcastic manicures are always fun to rock, so when I came across these cookies from Buzzfeed, I knew that I needed them on my nails!

  1. Start by applying two coats of Yuna.
  2. Then add a thin layer of The Diary over top.
  3. Once the base is dry, use acrylic paint to add on the hearts.
  4. Clean up.
  5. Finish with a coat of Tonic Topper.

This was such a fun manicure to wear, and they were popular with my coworkers haha! I’m not even a fan of conversation hearts, but I can see myself recreating these next year. I want to hear what you guys think though. Are you a fan of Valentine’s nail art or do you prefer anti-valentine designs? Leave me a comment down below with your thoughts!
