The Digit-al Dozen does Holo - Glitter Stencils

Hey there!  It's already Day 4 of The Digit-al Dozen's Holo Week.  Now that my co-worker has solved my "the internet is being a jerk" problem, I get to take a minute to blog!  Woohoo!  For today's holo mani, I used holographic glitter polish (the most blingy polish I own, in my opinion) with some stencils.  These are so freakin' sparkly that I think they would've been great for a New Year's party or something.  Sadly, I only wore them in the privacy of my own living room.  I'm such a party animal!

The Digit-al Dozen does Holo - Snowflake Nails

Hey there!  Another late evening post from me.  I don't know how I keep getting so distracted and end up doing this when I should be doing my nails!  But at least I did make it for Day 3 of The Digit-al Dozen's Holo Week.  For today's post I wanted to use some of Moonflower Polish's recently released holos.  I thought it'd be fun to do a brightly coloured gradient with snowflakes....probably because it feels like we've been snow-covered for 100 years and I'm craving some color.  Though I do have to admit, where I live really does still have a huge bright blue sky.

The Digit-al Dozen does Holo - Rainbow Mermaid Nails

Press  Sample

Hey there!  For Day 2 of The Digit-al Dozen's week of Holo, I decided to step away from the holiday nails for a second and do some nails that were inspired by What's Up Nails Mermaid Brushes that I talked about last week.  Originally I had done some holo stamping decals but when I got these brushes I thought they were so pretty that I wanted to do a design inspired by them.  So the decals can wait until later to blog about.  Instead, I have holo rainbow mermaid nails to share, that are way cooler!

The Digit-al Dozen does Holo - Christmas Drip Marble Nails

Hey there!  Hooray, it's time for a new Digit-al Dozen week!  This week we're doing Holo, which makes me happy since we can do holiday nail art or not.  I personally have a mix.  It did, on the other hand, teach me how terrible I am at photographing holographics.  I even took the top off my light box to try to help me out but I still don't think I managed to capture the rainbow-y goodness of the polishes I used for this week.  Even if I couldn't photograph the wonder of these polishes, today's mani stole my heart.  I actually did two versions.  First I tried a real water marble (which I'll share at the end of the post) but that got less than pretty so I did a drip marble.  Who needs a water marble when you can do a drip marble?!

Whats Up Nails B032 Floral Swirls Stamping Plate

Press  Sample

Hey there!  How's this for a rare weekend post?!  But I recently joined the When Colours Collide Facebook group and they post on Sunday so here I am.  This week's color combo was purple, white and gold.  When I saw that I thought it'd be a nice combination for one of the images on the Whats Up Nails B032 (Floral Swirls) stamping plate I recently received.  I think I was right, if I do say so myself.  I also did a second Floral Swirls mani while it was on hand.  Here they both are!

Nail Art with Girly Bits Cosmetics Fall 2018 Cremes

Nothing to Disclose

Hey there!  Last month when Girly Bits Cosmetics announced they were releasing a new set of creme polishes for 2018, I was definitely excited.  I've used the 2017 collection in a ton of nail art so I snatched up the new collection literally within a minute of it being available.  The colors are outside the realm of "typical" fall colors and really provide a range of colors that seemed useful for even more nail art.  So you just knew I had to play with them a bit.  These are the results of that playing.  I wanted to test them out with some of my more common techniques (mostly stamping, of course) but there's a bit more here, as you'll see.

Whats Up Nails Holiday/Winter Stamping Plates

Press  Sample

Hey there!  Along with my last Whats Up Nails package, they were kind enough to send me a few of the Winter/Holiday stamping plates for me to test out...and a few more products that I've combined with my stamping manis.  Whats Up Nails never ceases to amaze me with the quality of the products they provide to us nail addicts.  The stamping plates' etching has always been amongst the best (and considering I have over 1000 stamping plates, that's saying something).  But they are certainly more than stamping as you'll see if you keep reading past the jump...
