Digit-al Dozen Does Nature; Day 1

 It's Digit-al Dozen week again!  This weeks theme is nature!  Here's what I came up with for Day 1!


Started with a base of OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls, two coats (no pix as have shown before).  Stamped the mountain landscape using Funky Fingers Dark Knight using Infinity 58.


Infinity 58


Added a moose on the thumb using Infinity 75; stamping polish used is Mundo de Unas 22.


Using assortment of acrylic paints and a brush, added sky and water on all the nails, then filled in mountain range using a dark green paint.


Using paint brush, added in two more greens to the landscape on the mountains; stamped in a tree on the thumb using MJ VII using Mundo de Unas 7 and 9(I had to keep on touching up the moose on the thumb with brown stamping polish as my brush work was sloppy and I kept on painting over top the antlers, etc.!)


Added bears to the ring ringer using Infinity 75 using Mundo de Unas 22 as well as some grasses to the thumb using same acrylic paints used for the grass on the mountains.  Also stamped on random evergreens on index and pinky with an image from Infinity 75 using Mundo de Unas 7.


Added the sun using Mundo 11 with an image from Infinity 61.  The sun didn't stamp perfectly, but I think it fit in fine with the rustic look of the mani!


Added Canada geese using Funky Fingers Dark Knight from Infinity 61.

I wasn't too sure how top coat would be on top of the acrylic paints, so made sure I had enough pix of the mani in case it wrecked it!  Turned out, there was no ill effect at all using KBShimmer Clearly on Top.


Decided that matte would be better to see the detail of the nails; added a coat of OPI Matte.


I was so happy how this turned out; I especially love the moose on the thumb...even if my touch ups make him a little different than the first stamping!


Here's the other ladies Day 1 Nature mani's!

  12. You are brilliant! I would never think to use a stamp as the base and then build upon it like you do but you always pull everything together like it's meant to be that way! Love them!
