26 Great Nail Art Ideas - Stars

Hey there!  Today's 26 Great Nail Art Ideas theme is one I love...Stars!  However, the star mani I planned to post for this ended up looking like crap...booooo!!  Luckily I had a mani that I did over a year ago that I never posted for some reason that fits the theme perfectly.  So here we have some almost-ancient star stamping over a KBShimmer gradient.  You all know how much I love my KBShimmer cremes, partially because they make such good gradients!

Bundle Monster Tattoo Artist Collab Collection Stamping Plate Review

Hey there! Bundle Monster has just released a crazy interesting new Tattoo Artist Collab Collection of stamping plates and I was lucky enough to get to play with them before my little vacation last week.  This set of 5 plates has been put together by Bundle Monster and, get this, some amazing tattoo artists!!  The Tattoo Collaboration is a set of 5 6 x 12 cm plates, each with a variety of images created by 4 tattoo artists.  What they came up with are some insanely unique images that I’ve never seen on a stamping plate before.  It was a blast translating them onto my little nail canvasses.

The Digit-al Dozen does White/Nail Crazies Unite does Sea Creatures - Great White Sharks

Hey there!  And finally, I'm back to a stamping design for my final Digit-al Dozen White mani AND this week's Nail Crazies Unite prompt of Sea Creatures.  I wracked my brain for white sea animals and could only think of seals.  Luckily my sister is far more clever than I and she thought of great white sharks.  And, since Shark Week starts next weekend, it's almost perfect timing!

The Digit-al Dozen does White - Opals

Hey there!  Okay, let me start by saying that my fourth Digit-al Dozen does White design did not turn out how they did in my head.  Opals are my favourite stone and they're white (with flecks of awesomeness) so I thought that would make a good "white" mani.  I don't know what these turned into but they weren't very opalescent.  I think they were too sparkly.  But I'm using them anyway because the idea was still fun even if the execution was poor.  Plus it took awhile with all the gel polish curing so I'm sticking with them!

The Digit-al Dozen does White - Moonflowers

Hey there!  For my third Digit-al Dozen "white" nail art, I wanted to do some white flowers.  I suppose I could've done any floral nails in white, but I remembered that moonflowers are apparently white.  I don't think I've ever actually seen a moonflower but I love the Moonflower Polish brand so I thought I'd combine the polish with the nail art.  I tried with all my might to find a stamping plate that would work but, can you believe, I couldn't find a single moonflower image in all my plates?!  So I used the Moonflower Polish bottle and attempted to freehand them.

The Digit-al Dozen does White - White Wine

Hey there!  For my second "White" Digit-al Dozen mani, I did some stamping that I went with white wine.  I rarely drink wine and, when I do, I prefer it to be the bubbly sort so I think I would prefer white to red wine.  But honestly I don't know.  I really just stick with drinking beer (I'm such a good Canadian) but beer isn't white so we have wine nails for today.

The Digit-al Dozen does White - Clouds

Hey there!  It's a new Digit-al Dozen week!  This week we have the theme of "White".  I have a feeling I voted for this theme but when it came to actually doing my nails, I could only picture white nails...which would make for a mighty boring week.  Instead I tried to think of things that are white (or at least have white in their names) which was still challenging but kind of fun.  I'd been wanting to do cloudy nails for awhile and clouds are white so that's my day 1.
