When Colours Collide - Pink, Purple and Blue

Hey there!  I really should've posted my When Colours Collide mani yesterday but I rarely think of Sunday as a blogging day.  So I went along with my lovely Sunday and by the time I knew it, it was bedtime and I still hadn't blogged!  So here they are today instead.  This week's prompt was Pink, Purple and Blue.  For those that don't know, the When Colours Collide folk pick 3 colors and you can ONLY use those colors in your mani.  That's tough for someone like me who is pretty addicted to black or white in almost every design I do.  But I powered through and came up with this double gradient.  Hope you like it!

The Digit-al Dozen does Marble - Water Marble Nails With Stamping

Hey there!  Today brings us the end of The Digit-al Dozen's Marble Week.  One of the coolest (but most challenging) marble technique has to be the water marble.  I personally find that I can only marble with certain polishes.  I don't know what it is in a formula that makes it water marble-able or not and I'm certainly not patient enough to figure it out.  So when I get the urge to water marble, I tend to go back to my tried-and-true pipe dream polish neons.  This brand is gone now but I'll always appreciate whatever magic she put in them that made them fool proof.

The Digit-al Dozen does Marble - Drip Marble

Hey there!  It's the fourth day of The Digit-al Dozen's Marble Week and you had to know I was going to get to a drip marble eventually.  I fell in love with this technique as soon as I saw it.  So when I received my order of the Cirque Colors Dreamscapes collection over the holidays (ordered from Harlow & Co. because shipping from the US to Canada is pricey), I thought they're make a pretty dreamy marble mani.  Let me know if you agree!

The Digit-al Dozen does Marble - Baggie Marble Nails

Hey there!  It's Day 3 of The Digit-al Dozen's Marble Week.  Since I don't schedule my posts ahead of time (because I'm rarely that organized) I thought today's winter-y nails would be appropriate since it's starting to snow here tonight.  In Edmonton you never know if that is going to mean just a few flurries or a full on blizzard along with deepfreeze temperatures.  Fingers are crossed for just a few flurries!

The Digit-al Dozen does Marble -Realistic(ish) Marble Nails

Hey there!  I'm a tad late with my Digit-al Dozen marble nails for today but better late than never!  Darn work getting in the way of my blogging, haha!  For today I have my attempt at freehanding marble nails.  I did these over the Christmas break and they took me FOREVER!  Luckily I liked the outcome enough so I won't complain too much...

The Digit-al Dozen does Marble - Marble Stamping

Hey there!  It's time to start a brand new year with The Digit-al Dozen.  I love our first theme of the year - Marble!  I tried to do my manis for this week with different marble techniques, starting with stamping (of course).  I guess there's actually two different marble techniques here.  These started with a smooshy marble base which was then stamped with a marble plate.  Ironically the end result looks less like either one alone would...

Maniology M017 Radio Riot Stamping Plate Review

Affiliate Code

Hey there!  Happy Friday!!  I have another Maniology stamping plate review to share today before I head home for the weekend.  This is the M017 Radio Riot stamping plate.  It is chock full of images for all of us music lovers out there.  But it's really not just music images.  There's even a plaid image (which will always make me think of the 90's, my true love of music eras).  Seriously you have to check out the plate image down below to really get a sense of what this plate it about.  It's just coooollll.  And you can save 10% on it using my COPY10 code, making it even more economical.
