Digit-al Dozen Does Look Up; Day 4


I'm still sharing Digit-al Dozen mani's even though I'm terribly behind with them!  For day 4 look up challenge, I'm sharing bubbles floating in the air based upon the neighbours children blowing bubbles in the middle of our court that I seen a couple weeks ago!  Here's what I came up with!



Started with a base of two coats of Butter London Molly-Coddled, no top coat.


I've been all about layering lately and this was another that I thought I would layer; added unknown Cosmetic Arts iridescent glitter.


For a bit more sparkle, added Cover Girl City Lights.


Topped with KBShimmer Clearly on Top.


Stamped with an image from B. Loves B.00 Rainbows and Unicorns using FunkyFingers Gesso.


Topped with KBShimmer Clearly on Top to finish.


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

Digit-al Dozen Does Look Up; Day 3


I've had a hectic week and yesterday's dumping of snow didn't help it at all so I'm behind in getting my Digit-al Dozen posts up.  With the time change last weekend and with it now being dark at 5ish pm, I've been seeing a lot of stars at night now especially given that I leave work at 8 or 9 pm most nights lately which is what I came up with on day 3 of our look up challenge!


Started with a base of two coats of Zoya Pinta.


Added a coat of Etheral Lacquer Moonlit Machete from September 2018 Polish Pickup.


This low lighting pix shows flakies a bit better.


Topped with KBShimmer Clearly on Top.


Sponged Zoya Julie and Paint It Pretty Polish Indigo Rises.


Topped with KBShimmer Clearly on Top. A couple of the nails weren't very happy with all the coats of polish in such a short time and kinda wrinkled but as I was doing these nails one morning before work, I didn't have time for them to settle down.  But they did once dry.


Stamped using images from BundleMonster BM-XL213 using FunkyFingers Gesso.


Low lighting pix shows some of those flakies a little better....the ones I didn't sponge over anyway lol.


Topped with KBShimmer Clearly on Top to finish. 


Low light again.


Here's the other ladies day 3 mani's!

Digit-al Dozen Does Look Up; Day 2

I'm sorry for running behind and am only getting day 2 posted (and it's pretty late in the day at that!)  Life is just too busy (and I'm not organized enough to have the posts done earlier lol).  Anyway, here are Canada Geese getting ready to fly south for the winter which I've seen a lot of in the last few weeks when I look up!  And if you've been around a flock of Canada Geese, you know what the accent finger is lol!  Here's what I came up with!


Started with a China Glaze Bahamian Escape with accent of Great Lakes Lacquer Coffee is Necessary, two coats.


Topped with KBShimmer Clearly on Top.


Did random sponge stamping on all fingers except accent using China Glaze Sea Spray.  On the accent, hand painted using Zoya Shawn and Jace.


Stamped on all fingers except accent using image from Konad m79 using Funky Fingers Gesso.


Stamped (and in most cases double stamped) images from Infinity 52 using FunkyFingers Dark Knight on index, middle and pinky and with Canadian Nail Fanatic 001 with Fig Tree Stamps on thumb.


Stamped image from Lina Make Your Mark 01 on ring using FunkyFingers Gesso.  (That's suppose to be the ground with grass on the accent.)


Topped with KBShimmer Clearly on Top to finish.


Here's the other ladies day 2 mani's!

Digit-al Dozen Does Look Up; Day 1

It's Digit-al Dozen week!!!  The theme is look up as in what do you see when you look up?  Well, in my area, if I look up, I still see leaves falling!  The leaves are almost down but there are a few straggler trees that have leaves!  But I'm posting this on day 1 as the leaves are getting less and less every day and maybe by day 5, there will be no leaves left!  This is what I came up with!


This isn't as 'glamourous' as the pix before but it shows the stamping/gradient of the stamping a little better.


Started with a base of one coat of Girly Bits Sea You Next Fall.  No, that is not a typo.  One coat, y'all!



Topped with a coat of KBShimmer Clearly on Top.


Stamped with an image from Lina 4 Seasons-Autumn 02 using MdU 11, 32 and 53 and topped with KBShimmer Clearly on Top.



Stamping plate image and polishes.



I thought this was going to be the end of the mani but you know me and my love of busy nails so decided to add a few trees from Lina 4 Seasons-Winter 02 using same stamping polishes.


Topped with KBShimmer Clearly on Top to finish.


This was my other hand which turned out really nice too if I don't say so myself, just excuse the poor cuticle condition!  Used same image from Lina 4 Seasons-Autumn 02 using MdU 11, 32 and 53.


Here's the other ladies day 1 mani's!




This was one of my favourite fall manis!  Hope you like it too!

Thanks for looking!

Lest We Forget

Lest We Forget.

November 11th is Remembrance Day; the day we remember those who fought for our freedoms and those who continue to serve so that we continue to enjoy free liberties. 

I've done a Remembrance Day mani every year that I've had the blog; it is a day that holds great meaning to me; not only because I am able to live in a free country but because my grandfather fought in WWII so that I can have the freedom I enjoy today.  I'm fortunate that he made it back safely when so many others didn't; I wouldn't be here if he didn't come home as he had pre and post war babies and my dad was a post war baby lol.  Anyway, here's the mani that I did for this year.  Lest We Forget.  

(pix heavy post follows)


Started with a base of two coats of Girly Bits Not Plain White (Polish Con NY LE), no top coat.


Topped with KBShimmer Clearly on Top.


I had made stamper decals from Marianne Nails n.56 using MdU 2 and Konad Red special polish; applied to all fingers except ring finger.  Stamped words on middle finger using Clear Jelly Stamper CJS-LS-28 using MdU 2.


Clear Jelly Stamper CJS-LS-28.


Stamped ring finger with image from Stampholic 7 and thumb using Nail Matinee NM 10 using MdU 2.


I didn't use this plate but had planned on it; this is Messy Mansion MM78XL.  Lots of poppy images.
