Swimsuit-Inspired Geometric Stamping

Hey there!  This month the Nail Challenge Collaborative Facebook group has a fun theme...but one that is super hard for fashion-challenged me!  We're doing "inspired by a garment" mani.  But honestly, I pretty much only wear solid colors (though I do love stripes too) so I was tempted to just paint my nails black and call it a day!  But I looked at what I had laying around.  I had just done laundry so my swimsuit was hanging out to dry and I thought it would make a pretty cool nail design so that's what I did!

Whats Up Nails - City, Citrus, Aztec and Lightning Bolts Stencils

Press  Sample

Hey there!  I hope everyone had a great weekend.  Mine was fun but I think I need another weekend to sleep!  I actually spent all day yesterday playing with some new Whats Up Nails products but today I'm sharing some that I used not quite as recently.  I'm a big fan of their nail stencils so it's a good thing they have such a big variety of them to pick from.  Here I used the City, Citrus, Aztec and Lightning Stencils.  Keep reading to see what I did with them.

The Digit-al Dozen's 5th Birthday/26 Great Nail Art Ideas - 5 Coloured Autumn Stamping

Hey there!  Today is a combo theme but it's one that I knew what I wanted to do for as soon as I saw it.  It's the final Digit-al Dozen 5th birthday mani PLUS 26 Great Nail Art Ideas Autumn theme.  There's so many pretty colors in autumn (or fall, as I tend to say) that it was easy to find 5 that I wanted to use.  Paired up with a negative space UberChic Beauty image, I had an easy fall mani!

The Digit-al Dozen's 5th Birthday - 5 Pointed Stars

Hey there!  In my google searches for things that come in 5's, I found that stars have 5 points.  That was a good enough reason for me to do a star mani for this week's Digit-al Dozen anniversary celebration.  Seriously, if anyone else knows of things that come in 5's, I'm all ears!

The Digit-al Dozen's 5th Birthday: 5 Chrome Powders

Press  Sample
Hey there!  I've been waiting so long to post this mani.  It's been torture since I was pretty much gaga over it!  For today's Digit-al Dozen 5th birthday mani, I used 5 of the Magic Shifting Powders from Whats Up Nails.  It just so happened that I have 5 of them that I've previously reviewed so it worked out perfectly for this theme.  I paired them up with the Mosaic Stencils and ended up absolutely loving the final look.  Hope you do too!

The Digit-al Dozen's 5th Birthday - 5 Golden Rings

Hey there!  In my quest for things that come in 5's for this week's celebration of the Digit-al Dozen's fifth birthday, I thought of "5 golden rings".  But really there's zero percent chance that I could actually paint 5 circles (circles are REALLY hard for me) but I remembered this stamping image from UberChic Beauty that is a bunch of overlapping rings.  In the end, there's far more than 5 golden rings on my nails here but that's okay, right.  Plus, just to make it more of a "5" mani, I used 5 different KBShimmer purples in the base so it totally counts, haha!

The Digit-al Dozen's 5th Birthday: 5 Balloons

Hey there!  This month we're celebrating the Digit-al Dozen's fifth birthday.  I'm so happy to be a part of a group that has been around for 5 whole years, even if I've only been around for a couple of them.  The theme was a tough one though.  I tried to think of things that came in 5's and there's really not many.  Luckily, Katherine of Procrastinails suggested birthday ideas and I totally stole one of them.  So today we have balloons with what I'm hoping is the number "5" in different languages.
