The Digit-al Dozen does Birthdays - August 2017

Hey there!  It's a big birthday month over in the Digit-al Dozen!  Three of the ladies celebrated this month: Tammy of Canadian Nail Fanatic, Lothwen of Manis and Makeovers and  Sarah of 25 Sweetpeas and Tammy of Canadian Nail Fanatic.  So many birthdays!  They picked a tropical image to go with the winding down of summer.  I did my best to freehand it but I did NOT have the right colors, that's for sure.  So I guess mine is just loosely inspired by their photo.

Here's their inspiration photo.  Doesn't it make you want to head to a beach?  

I started with Madam Glam Forbidden Mini Skirt for my base.  Told you this was going to be used a lot for nail art!  

Then I went to town with a bunch of acrylic paints.  I didn't really have any teals like the original photo so I just used greens and a light orange.  I finished with KBShimmer Clearly On Top.  

As I was doing these I was in awe of people who do lots of freehand.  I used the tiniest brush I have but I still couldn't create any real detail.  I don't know how they do it!  

That's all for today.  Happy happy birthday ladies!  Be sure to swing by next month when it's the whole group's birthday!  

'Til next time...
