The Digit-al Dozen does Continents - Africa

Hey there!  We're at the midpoint in Continents week and today is my turn to try the lovely continent of Africa.  I have seen some AMAZING Africa art from the ladies of the Digit-al Dozen this week.  They kick my Africa nails' butt!  Good thing nail art is not a competition!  And even if it was, I'm the least competitive person ever so I'm just fine with my less than stellar Africa nails.

I think it was my color combination that lost me.  I used China Glaze Kalahari Kiss (since that's a desert in Africa), KBShimmer For Fox Sake and Chai-huahua.  It's too dull.  I want it to be brighter.  


I did some double stamping for these starting with Color Club's Africa plate in Mundo de Unas White.  Don't you love it when your theme name is right in the name of a product?  Makes choices so obvious!

The animal scene is an image from Born Pretty Store BP-16.  A few plates have images like this but I like this one.  It's small enough to be able to get lots of animals onto my nails.  That part was stamped with Mundo de Unas Black and finished with KBShimmer Clearly On Top.

That's all for today.  Now I'm off for a work dinner where I'm going to stock up on delicious salsa! Speaking of, I just bought a food processor so I could make it myself but it was disgusting.  Does anyone have any good food processor recipes?  While you think of some, feel free to browse some more continental nail art in the links below.  

'Til next time...
