The Digit-al Dozen does Story Genres - Fantasy

Press  Sample

Hey there!  It's sadly time for the end of this week's Digit-al Dozen theme of Story Genres.  What have you thought of this week?  Are there any genres we all missed?  For my final look, I went with what is probably one of my favourite genres now - Fantasy.  I haven't always read fantasy books but they've slowly crept into my life and now make up most of my reading, especially if you count anything supernatural as fantasy.  What can I say?  I like my books with just a hint of the unreal.  I keep telling myself I'm going to re-read the Game of Thrones books but it's such a big task that they just sit around looking pretty.  There's no unicorns in Game of Thrones but maybe there should be, haha!

I did this mani with all Whats Up Nails products.  Their stencils and powders work so easily that these were really a breeze to do.  I'll link the products and prices of the products I used here.  

$3.75 USD
12 stencils (22 x 28 mm)

(previously reviewed here)
$38.75 USD
1 gram

I started with a black gel base (Madam Glam Perfect Black) and a no wipe top coat.  I applied the Thorns stencils with the Whats Up Nails Holographic Powder to create a bit of a medieval look.  But with rainbows.  We don't want to be getting too scary here so holo rainbows help!   

$3.75 USD
20 stencils (5 sizes so they should have a size for everyone)

Not only do I love that there's so many sizes of these unicorn stencils on a sheet but they also have both orientations.  That makes nail art so much easier!  Here I used a medium size of both orientations with a white polish and just added HK Girl top coat.  Actually first I tried a loose white glitter but that was a mess so I'm glad I took pics before I glittered them.  

I guess that brings us to the end of August's Digit-al Dozen theme.  By the time the next one rolls around it'll be fall *sad face*... So get your DD fix by reading all the other blogs that the girls have put together this week.  You can find today's instalments in the links below.

'Til next time...
