Happy new year lovelies! Can you believe that it’s already 2017? This past year has been filled with so much craziness, I’m not sure if I should be sad to see it go or be thankful that it’s over haha. Blog-wise, I’d say it was an alright. I won’t be making any blog resolutions like past years, but things have been kind of all over the place here over the past couple of months. So, I’m hoping to get back on track and into a routine with the new year. Also, I want to work to be more involved and interact more in the polish community. But, moving on! I have one final Christmas look to share with you guys. So, let’s get to it!

Here is what I used:

Look at all of those sparkles! This design was what I ended up wearing on Christmas, but it’s passable as a New Years look. Actually, this was the first year that I didn’t go all out with glitter for my New Years Eve manicure, but you will have to wait till later in the week to see that design.

  1. Start by applying two coats of Cross My Hearts.
  2. Then add a layer of Leaf Of Faith over top.
  3. Apply the glitter gradient with NoelleBlizzard and Dancing Fireflies. I used the dry brush technique to achieve this look.
  4. Clean up.
  5. Finish with a coat of Glossy Glam.

So, what do you guys think? Glitter can do absolutely no wrong in my eyes, so I’m in love with these. So much so, that I ended up wearing them for almost five days. What did you wear on your nails on Christmas and New Years? Let me know in the comments down below!

Good evening lovelies! It’s time for another Digit-al Dozen birthday post! This time around we’re celebrating the December babies which are Cathy (More Nail Polish,) Kerry (Painted Fingertips) and Kristi (Let’s Begin Nails!) They picked a killer photo that was basically impossible to recreate, but I’m happy with what I have to share with you guys. So, let’s get to the holo!

Here is what I used:

Have you gone blind yet? These nails were seriously SO shiny and my camera was not happy haha. But, check out this link to see the original inspiration. The photo has such an amazing rainbow shift happening but, unfortunately, I could not figure out how to translate it on my nails. If anyone has any suggestions, let me know because I’d attempt this again!

  1. Start by applying three coats of Ghost Of Jupiter.
  2. Then add a layer of Fairy Godmother (press sample) over top.
  3. While the polish is still slightly tacky, press the nail foil (press sample) onto the nails.
  4. Once the base is done, use acrylic paint and a striping brush to add on the grid.
  5. Clean up.

So, while these nails might not be a great representation of their inspiration, I’m still pretty stoked on how these turned out! I mean look at all that holo glitter. Plus, the foils worked so much better this time around and didn’t act weird like they did during my initial review. I still need to practice more with them, but I’m happy with these results. Make sure to leave me a comment down below with your thoughts!

Oh hi. Again. Lovelies. It’s super late and for some reason, I’m still wide awake so that means another post! Because clearly the thing to do when you can’t sleep is to blog. Right? Pretty sure that’s what a doctor would prescribe. Maybe? I’m not a doctor, I wouldn’t know. But moving on, because this rambling is getting out of hand already. I have reindeer nails to share with you guys this time around, so prepare yourself for some cuteness!

Here is what I used:

See what I mean? I have really been into painting little creatures on my nails lately, which might seem kind of weird. But come on! Look at how cute they are! They even have little ornaments hanging off of their antlers. Can you hug a reindeer? Because I totally want to do it! (Also, side note, for someone who is actually extremely awkward and not good about getting/receiving hugs, I talk about hugging a lot of things on the blog…) Odd. Anyways, this print by Aless Baylis ( aka This Is Gold LTD.) was the inspiration for this look!

  1. Start by applying two coats of Neely.
  2. Then, add a layer of The Diary over that.
  3. Once that’s dry, using acrylic paint and a detail brush add on the reindeer.
  4. Clean up.
  5. Finish with a coat of Wax That…(which if anyone has any suggestions for a good matte topcoat, let me know! Sadly, my this one is almost empty and I can’t buy it anymore D: )

So, what do you guys think? I’m so in love with these little guys! I do wish that I had chosen a darker base polish for them, because they are getting a bit lost in the pastel green. But, I was already wearing it and just decided to add the deer over top to extend the manicure a little longer. Make sure to leave me a comment down below with your thoughts though!

Good evening lovelies! How has your day been? We’re halfway through the work week and I could not be more excited about it!    Work is going to start getting busy again, so I’m trying to take advantage of my weekends for blogging stuff (and watching Netflix. Working on the blog sounds way more productive, but let’s be real, I can’t resist a good X-Files marathon. Because you know, Mulder.) Anyways, I have some untraditional holiday nails to share with you guys today. So, if you like pink, let’s get to it!

Here is what I used:

My third and final look for this month’s The Nail Challenge Collaborative theme was inspired by another holiday card! More specifically, this one that is linking to the blog, Print & Pattern. I’m not entirely sure if that’s the proper source, but we’ll run with it.

  1. Start by applying two coats of That’s Crantastic!
  2. Then, add a layer of Leia over top.
  3. Once that’s dry, using acrylic paint, Poppy (press sample) and a detail brush add on the pattern.
  4. Clean up.
  5. Finish with a coat of Glossy Glam.

This look is totally out of my comfort zone, because you know, pink. You guys probably won’t even believe when I tell you that I wore this look on both hands and out of the house for a day! The base was just way too beautiful for me to not wear these for a little while. I’m not saying that I’ve suddenly changed my mind on pink nails, but wow, layer your flakies guys. It’s seriously magical. I’ll definitely be doing more of it in the future! But until then, let me know what you think by leaving me a comment down below.

Hello again guys! How has life been since I left you?..yes, it’s only been an hour since my last post. It’s fine. Lots of things can change in an hour! But, moving on! Christmas has passed, but I’m still working to finish up the 12 Days of Christmas (hosted by the Challenge Your Nail Art group.) This look isn’t too overly festive, so it could easily be recreated throughout the upcoming winter months. Anyways, enough rambling. Let’s get to the penguins!

Here is what I used:

Look at how stinking cute those little birdies are! I just want to pinch their little, sparkly cheeks (hashtag grandma status.) This illustration by Magrikie was the inspiration for these nails. I loved how adorable the round penguin looked in the drawing, so I knew that I needed to recreate it. My guys (ladies?) are wearing little bows, but they look just as cute as the original!

  1. Start by applying three coats of Ellie.
  2. Then, add a layer of Wooder Ice on top.
  3. Once the base is dry, use acrylic paint and a detail brush to add on the penguins.
  4. Dab a little bit of Pink Anemonemone on for the cheeks.
  5. Clean up.
  6. Finish with a coat of Tonic Topper.

So, what do you guys think? I was totally in love with this look and ended up wearing it for a few days (which rarely happens. Random note, I’m going on day two of only wearing a plain polish on my nails and it’s such a weird feeling! Mind you, it is Poison Rose from Tonic Nail Polish, so it’s far from boring. But, yeah. Not having any nail art is odd.) So…moving on! Make sure to leave me a comment letting me know what you guys think of this look!
