Good evening lovelies! I totally did not intend for this post to go up this late…whoops. I’ve been procrastinating on my Christmas shopping (as I do every year,) and decided that tonight would be a good time to panic about it. So, I’ve been shopping and planning presents for the past couple of hours. BUT! I have nails to share with you guys now! This is my last look for the Digit-al Dozen’s December theme, and this look is by far my favorite. Onto the poinsettia!

Here is what I used:

Did you guys figure out why this look is my favorite? Hashtag paint all the florals (also, side note. Why didn’t I think of that hashtag sooner?) I am so proud of myself for figuring out a way to sneak flowers into this month’s theme. Hmm, which gives me a New Years resolution idea! How about in 2017, I try and fit at least one floral pattern into very month’s Digit-al Dozen this printDesign Love Festweek? Yes? No? Is it really a challenge though, since I manage to do it almost every month? And again, I’m rambling. So, moving on! This design was inspired by that I believe is from ?

  1. Start by applying three coats of Snow Way!
  2. Then using the dry brush technique, add on a little bit of Blizzard.
  3. Once the base is dry, paint the poinsettia pattern on using acrylic paint and a detail brush.
  4. Clean up.
  5. Finish with a coat of Tonic Topper.

So, what do you guys think? Obviously, I’m thrilled with how these turned out! These nails have flowers, glitter, bright colors and a pattern. What more could you possibly need in a manicure? Leave me a comment down below with not only what you think of this look, but also let me know what would be your perfect holiday nail art!

Oh hello again lovelies! I did not get as much blogging done today as I was hoping…actually I don’t even remember what I did today. Weird. I’m sure my nails got painted at some point in the blur, but yeah. Does that happen to anyone else? You wake up and have an entire day to do nothing, and then the next thing you know it’s 11pm but you can’t recall actually accomplishing anything. I don’t like it haha. But, moving on because that had nothing to do with nails. It’s Thursday which means I have my fourth December inspired look to share for this Digit-al Dozen week. Peppermint pinwheel, anyone?

Here is what I used:

So, has anyone ever had a peppermint pinwheel cookie before? Because I’ve never actually had one… I just came across this recipe and thought they looked kind of cool, so I decided to paint them on my nails! The cookies don’t have glitter on them, but my nails do. Which means that I probably don’t even need the cookies, because my nails are sparkly and they aren’t. Do people make sparkly cookies? Because I definitely need them if they exist! ….and hashtag end rant.

  1. Start by applying two coats of Blaze.
  2. Add a layer of Light Leap-Year over top.
  3. Then using acrylic paint and a detail brush, paint the pinwheel on top.
  4. Clean up.
  5. Finish with a a coat of Glossy Glam.

And that’s a wrap! What do you guys think? This is truthfully, probably my least favorite look from the entire week. I needed a quick design that I could manage on both hands, and this was the only thing that I could think of. The swirls turned out pretty sloppy, but the base turned out lovely! Make sure to leave me a comment down below with your thoughts!

Hello lovelies! How is your day going so far? I ended up staying home from work to try because I wasn’t feeling well still, but I feel a little better right now. So, that means blog posts because I can write them in bed *insert that little woot hands emoji*! I still have plenty of holiday nail art to share with you guys, so prepare yourselves for that. This post will focus on stars though, so let’s get to it!

Here is what I used:

Boom! Semi, kind of, holiday looking nails! When I was getting ready to paint these nails, I wanted to do something other than just painting a bunch of stars on my nails. Not that there is anything wrong with that, but I just feel like I’ve done it over and over again and wanted to do something different. So, when I came across these ornaments from the blog, NorthstoryI knew I wanted to try painting them on my nails.

  1. Start by applying two (or three?) coats of Carry On.
  2. Then using acrylic paint and a detail brush, paint on the star ornaments.
  3. Once those are dry, use the dry brush technique to add a little bit of Silver Nickels around them.
  4. Clean up.
  5. Finish with a layer of Glossy Glam.

So, what do you guys think? These aren’t super, in-your-face holiday nails but I’m enjoying the subtleness of them. Overall, I would probably give them a meh. I like them, but am not crazy about them at the same time. Have you guys ever felt that way about some nail art that you did? Not everything can be a knock your socks off manicure, and I like showing you guys *most* of what I paint (including the fails.) So, let me know down below what you think!

Hello lovelies! Tonight’s post is going to be a bit on the shorter side. I haven’t been sleeping well this week, and the lack of sleep hit me pretty hard today. So, I’m trying to get to bed early. Keyword being try, because I’ve already wasted so much time tonight on Pinterest looking up vegetarian recipes (it’s been a month today since I decided to stop eating meat! If you have any good recipes, let me know.) And none of this has had anything to do with nails. So, yeah. It’s a Digit-al Dozen week. We are still tackling the theme of December. So, let’s get to the sparkle!

Here is what I used:

Also, I’m going to take a quick moment here to apologize for these photos. The base of the nail art had so much sparkle, that it freaked my camera out. Aka my camera is rude and likes to be a brat. But, moving on! This holiday design was inspired by this print from Studio Noodles!

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

  1. Start by applying two coats of Bat-chelor Pad.
  2. Add a layer of Goodness Had Nothing To Do With It over top.
  3. Then using a detail brush and acrylic paint, add on the design.
  4. Clean up.
  5. Finish with a coat of Glossy Glam.

And, that’s that! I’m so bummed that these didn’t photograph well, because this was one of my favorite looks from this entire week. Goodness Had Nothing To Do With It looks amazing layered over Bat-chelor Pad, and the design looks great with the base colors. Blah haha. I can see myself recreating this look when we get closer to Christmas though. So, maybe you guys will see it again. But, until then, leave me a comment down below with your thoughts!

Hello again lovelies. I’m back *finally* with my post for this Digit-al Dozen week! If you did not see my post yesterday, this month’s theme is all about the month of December! Get it? December in December? Yeah, totally just caught on to that one myself. Wow. I really need to start sleeping more… Anyways! For my second look, I decided to paint some holly on my nails!

Here is what I used:

Look, guys! Red and green! Boom. Therefore, Christmas nails. I even used a holiday themed nail polish, so hashtag nailed it! I’m totally patting myself on the back for this one haha. But, there is really no real reason behind me painting holly on my nails. This print by Miss Capricho popped up on my Pinterest and I thought it would make for some lovely nail art! I hate to be like, “I told you so,” but I told you so 😛

  1. Start by applying three coats of Sparks.
  2. Once that’s dry, use a dotting tool to add some dots of Holiday Sweater.
  3. When the dots are done, go back in with a detail brush and acrylic paint for the leaves.
  4. Clean up.
  5. Finish with a layer of Glossy Glam.

So, what do you guys think? This look was one that I was a bit hesitant to paint, but I’m super happy with how they turned out! Sparks is such a pretty polish. It’s seriously the perfect cream shade for my skin tone, it doesn’t pull too yellow or too pink which I love. Plus, those little gold flakes played really well with the gold shimmer that is in Holiday Sweater. But, I want to know what you guys think. Leave me a comment down below with your thoughts, because I love reading them!
