The Digit-al Dozen does Christmas In July - Santa Flying Over The Tropics

Hey there!  I know, it's pretty late to be getting up a Digit-al Dozen post but gotta fit in the blogging when I can...ya know?  For today's Christmas In July design, I wanted to have Santa and his reindeer flying over a tropical sunset.  I also wanted that sunset to be snowing but that got pretty hidden...but the thought was there!

The Digit-al Dozen does Christmas In July - Merry Summer!

Hey there!  I asked my sister to help me come up with Christmas In July nail ideas for this week's Digit-al Dozen theme and she came across a picture of a watermelon Christmas tree.  It was just such a perfect blend of summer and Christmas that I couldn't not use it.  I wasn't entirely sure what else to do with it but I thought neon Christmas lights would be fun so that's what I have to share today.

The Digit-al Dozen does Christmas In July - Christmas Beach Party

Hey there!  Long time, no talk!  I've been a bit of a mess lately so blogging hasn't been highest on my priority list.  But the reason is a pretty exciting one...I've been looking to buy a house and I think I found one!  It's been mighty stressful though.  I don't know how some people look for ages and ages looking for the perfect place.  I would probably develop 500 ulcers if I did that.  It's been about 2 months for me and that's plenty!  But, stress or not, I didn't want to miss our Digit-al Dozen week.  This month's theme is Christmas In July.  At first I hated the idea of the theme but it ended up being pretty fun.  For my first mani, I went with a beach party design.  Because even Santa and his elves deserve some relaxation time, tropical drinks and all!

Maniology Pineapple Whip Stamping Starter Kit

Affiliate Code

Hey there!  Today I have a look at one of the newer stamping kits from Maniology.  Occasionally they come out with these "stamping starter kits" which are great for starters since they come with a stamper but they're also great for us veterans because it's sort of like a mini Mani X Me box.  You get polish and a plate and who doesn't need an extra stamper (especially if you like doing reverse stamping so you can do them all at once)?  This is the Pineapple Whip Starter Kit.  Since Maniology is based in Hawaii, there's often a bit of a pineapple feel to them...probably because they often include pineapple-flavored gummy candy in orders which just so happen to be the most delicious candy ever invented.  It just made sense for them to make a whole pineapple-themed kit!  Now normally I'd say use the code COPY10 to save yourself 10% (which you can do on any regular priced Maniology order) but it's currently on sale for for only $15 USD (regular $24 USD) which is almost 40% off so if this interests you, I'd say jump on it now while it's on sale.

Moonflower Polish Gemstones Pt. 2 Swatches

Press  Sample

Hey There!  Today I'm having a look at Moonflower Polish's Gemstones Pt 2 collection.  I previously reviewed the first Gemstones collection way back in October (that post can be found here) and loved them so I'm so happy she came out with a new set to expand the color line.  I have found Moonflower's stamping polishes to be spot one, especially when you're looking for something outside of cremes.  She has really mastered the formula for putting enough holo or shimmer in her polishes for the sparkle to show while also having enough color that not everything gets silver-ed out.  I also really like using them as regular polish.  They apply easily and opaquely, perfect for the person on the go.

My Mani Box - Stained Glass (February 2019)

Press  Sample

Hey there!  Today I'm sharing a few looks I did with an older My Mani Box from Beautometry.  My Mani Box is a subscription nail art box that you can order monthly or for 3, 6, or even 12 months.  Each month's box contains 2 MoYou London stamping plates (you pick regular or XL sized), a stamping accessory plus more.  I've generally found that they usually contain at least one indie polish and they've all been lovely.  February's box theme was Stained Glass.  Let's take a look at it.
