The Digit-al Dozen does In My Garden/Nail Crazies Unite Lisa Frank Inspired

Hey there!  For today's post I managed to combine the Digit-al Dozen's In My Garden week with today's Nail Crazies Unite theme of Lisa Frank-Inspired.  I know rainbow roses like this don't grow naturally but wouldn't it be cool if they did?!  I'm actually a bit too old to really know what Lisa Frank did but I do she did a lot of neat neon stuff so I did some neon roses with the dreams that someday there will be a neon rose garden.

The Digit-al Dozen does In My Garden - Succulent Rock Garden

Hey there!  Since I don't actually have a garden, it was a bit challenging to come out with "In My Garden" ideas.  But I had just bought Cirque Colors Pebbles and thought it would make a good rock garden.  However, when I googled "rock gardens" I learned that they're not literally just piles of rocks.  There's usually lots of succulent plants in there as well...who knew?!  Luckily succulents are very popular these days so I had a stamping plate that was just perfect for it and I came up with my favourite mani of the week.  I hope you like it too!

The Digit-al Dozen does In My Garden - Garden Thieves

Hey there!  My third Digit-al Dozen In My Garden post will be a quick one.  When I was trying to think of ideas for Garden week, I asked my mom what pests were in her garden.  Her response: "deer, rabbits...and your dad".  Good one, Mom!  So that was the inspiration for today's mani - the critters that steal my mom's veggies!

Whats Up Nails Canadian Flag Stencils Giveaway from Nail Polish Canada

Press  Sample

Hey there!  I have such a fun post today!  Nail Polish Canada (the first online nail polish stockist I ever discovered and still one of my faves) has decided to celebrate the upcoming Canada Day by giving away a set of these Whats Up Nails Canadian Flag stencils to 10 of my readers.  The first ten people to follow this link to the NPC site and use the code BC5H85E1S will get their very own set for free.  And, if you've read any of my previous reviews of Whats Up Nails stencils you'll know that these stencils are always incredible.  You'd probably expect a red and white mani with these (and I have indeed used these stencils before with just that) but since Canada is more than red or white, I decided to use the entire rainbow of colors since that is what Canada is to me.  We won't be kept to use two colors...we need them all!

The Digit-al Dozen does In My Garden - Tulips

Hey there!  It's the second day of The Digit-al Dozen's In My Garden week and I'm again drawing inspiration from my mom's garden.  For as long as I remember, my mom has planted tulip bulbs in the fall.  Sometimes just a few, sometimes lots.  But around our yard they were always the first sign of spring which probably explains why they're one of my favourite flowers.

The Digit-al Dozen does In My Garden - Carrots

Hey there!  It's time for a new Digit-al Dozen week...hooray!  This month our theme is "In My Garden" but since I live in an apartment, I certainly don't have a garden.  Fear not, I grew up on an acreage in the country where we had a big garden.  My mom has recently taken up gardening again (and I luckily get to reap the rewards) so I used my parents' yard as inspiration for some of these this week...and some I just made up!  My first mani was actually done ages ago for one of the days I was helping out a local farmer sell carrots at the farmer's market.  If you have a farmer's market in your area, I highly suggest supporting them.  You get to buy local AND the food is way better than I've ever found in grocery stores.  I've become a big produce snob after discovering how delicious it is!  I honestly always have a bag of these carrots in my fridge.  I think I'll cook some tonight for dinner...

26 Great Nail Art Ideas - Drag or Dry Marble

Press  Sample

Hey there!  It's the middle of Friday night and the first time I've had time to actually blog.  But I couldn't not post his week's 26 Great Nail Art Ideas mani.  The prompt was dry/drag marble.  I think it turned out pretty cute...but then to make it even cuter I put some Whats Up Nails Cupcake Stencils on.
