The Digit-al Dozen does Look Up - Clocks

Hey there!  Continuing with this week's Digit-al Dozen theme of Look Up (The First Thing You See), I did some time-related stamping.  I realized that I am VERY uncomfortable when I don't know what time it is (which is somewhat ironic since I'm almost always late for everything).  The only time that doesn't apply is when I'm at the lake since that's the place where I'm relaxed and time has no meaning.  But at home, I've been wearing a watch since I was in grade 4, there's a clock in both my labs (and in the lab through the window where I frequently check their clock to make sure mine is correct), a clock in my bedroom, two in the kitchen and one in the living room.  Not to mention, my computer, my phone, my car and my PVR.  So, while none of my clocks are as fancy as this stamping image, I certainly look up and see the time almost constantly.

The Digit-al Dozen does Look Up - Ceiling Tiles

Press  Sample

Hey there!  It's time for this month's week of Digit-al Dozen goodness!  This month our theme was "Look Up - First Thing You See".  This one was a challenging but fun one, that I took quite literally.  It also taught me that I don't have a whole lot of color around me which is a bit depressing!  I ended up with almost all black/white/grey or shades of beige designs this week.  My first one was inspired by what I see when I look up ~40 hours per week...the plain old ceiling tiles in my office at work.  You know the kind.  They're grey with little holes in them and can be found in pretty much every office across the land.  I actually did two manis with this idea, the first with stamping, but I prefer this one using stencils.

UberChic Beauty Give Thanks Stamping Plate

Press  Sample

Hey there!  As a Canadian, Thanksgiving has come and gone for the year and I didn't even do a mani to celebrate this year.  BUT American Thanksgiving is coming up in a couple weeks!  With the help of UberChic Beauty's Give Thanks stamping plate, I got to do a couple of Thanksgiving manis which will, hopefully, give some of my American friends out there some inspiration.

Autumn Dotticure Nails

Hey there!  I hope everyone had a spectacular weekend and enjoyed time change day (my personal favourite day of the year even though I know not everywhere gets to change their clocks).  I think I stayed up until about 4 am doing my nails and binge watching TV which, with the clock change, was only 3 am which is a far more reasonable time to go to bed, haha!  I got to play with a couple UberChic plates and some Madam Glam polishes so you can expect to see the results of my insomnia sometime this week hopefully.  But for today, I have a fall manicure, once again using the Girly Bits Fall Cremes from last year.  I've used these a ton this year.  She released a new set on Friday at 10 am and my checkout receipt for the whole set came through by 10:01 am...needless to say, I love Pam's cremes since she's formulated them to be wonderful for nail art.  I can't wait to see them in person!  Anyway, here's a dotticure twist on a fall leaves mani...

Nail Crazies Unite - Plaid

Hey there!  Now that Halloween is over I'm back to posting non-holiday nails.  Today's Nail Crazies Unite prompt is Plaid.  I happened to do these before I even know UberChic was coming out with a plaid plate (which ended up being AMAZING).  Luckily, I do have other plaid plates.  UberChic's is great because the layering ideas are obvious and plentiful.  I had to make do layering plaid off a different plate with images that made it a bit more challenging but I still like the outcome.

Vampire Halloween Nail Stamping

Hey there!  Happy Halloween!  Today's blog post is sharing the actual design I'm wearing today.  Vampires were one of the only Halloween stereotype that I haven't done yet this year which is pretty much blasphemy for me since I love vampire lore.  So here we have today's vampire nails!

Skeleton Halloween Nail Stamping

Hey there!  It's time for yet another Halloween mani.  I know it seems like it's all I've been posting lately but I like Halloween nail art so I'm trying to squeeze in all the manis I've worn over the last week or two.  Assuming I do my nails again tonight (which is pretty likely since I have no other plans tonight), I'll probably have one more to share tomorrow.  But for today, I have some skeleton stamping I did late last week.
