Digit-al Dozen Does Nature; Day 4

I've always wanted to do an underwater scene and the Digit-al Dozen nature theme was as good excuse as any to finally attempt one!  Here's what I came up with!

Started out with a base of Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Grey Matters; this is one coat, no top coat.  Not the best coverage, but I knew I'd be layering it.


For some interest and depth, added a coat of Delush Night at the Asylum; topped with KBShimmer Clearly on Top.

Stamped using Infinity 11 (thumb, middle and index) and MoYou Sailor Collection-08 (pinky and ring) using Mundo de Unas 52 on all fingers except thumb.  Thumb was mix of Mundo 20 and 21.

Added a few more images from same plates using Mundo 13, 21 and 57 

Top coated.  I really liked the look for this just as it was.  In fact, I thought about leaving it as is in case more stamping wrecked it!

Added Zoya Godiva for sand.

Stamped sea creatures.  Plates used were MJ JR-24 (turtle on thumb), MoYou Sailor Colletion-01 (starfish on thumb), Infinity 71 (octopus and starfish on ring and fish on index), MoYou Sailor Collection-10 (pinky) and MJ Jr-30 (jellyfish on middle).  Stamping polishes were Mundo de Unas 11, 13, 21, 39.  Starfish on thumb was custom mix of Mundo 51 and white.  Added dots on octopus eye and yellow on fish.

Topped with KBShimmer Clearly on top to finish.

I thought the glitter interest and stamping generally would look better is not so much shine, so added coat of OPI matte.  Not sure if I like it as much as it mutes the bold colours.  What do you think?

Here's the other ladies Day 4 mani's!

Thanks for looking!


  1. I wouldn't have thought matte, but it's really neat in these. The depth overall is unreal. I just love it at each step!

  2. Night at the Asylum is perfect in the base for this! I love how colorful all the stamping is. I think I like it shiny better...just because water is shiny but both ways are great!

  3. love how layering give it depths. pretty

  4. This is so cute and the depth between the layers is amazing!

  5. This is so cute! There is a lot of dimension which is really cool!

  6. This is the cutest sea life mani! I love that octopus!

  7. Holy depth! This is stunning! Love those little starfish and the octopus looks so happy to be in this mani!

  8. This is so fun looking, and also my favourite! I love how you used the glitter as a backdrop, it almost looks like bubbles. :)

  9. this is incredible, and i love how all the layering gives it an almost 3d feel
