Digit-al Dozen Does Marble; Day 3

I'm late with my day 3 Digit-al Dozen mani but what else is new lately!  

This mani didn't turn out to be what I had in mind but that's OK, I don't think that's unusual when you do your nails.  In my case, I had done a test nail with my vision using a pretty chunky glitter but when I sat down to do my nails, decided I didn't want to deal with the hassle of removing a chunky glitter on all my nails so went with a blingy holo that has easy removal instead!  Here's what I came up with!


Started with a base of two coats of Different Dimension Kiss Me Under The Light of a Thousand Stars, no top coat.


Topped with a coat of KBShimmer Clearly on Top.


Stamped using Apipila p.6 using FunkyFingers Dark knight.


Stamped an image from Delaney Papillons 001 using MdU 69.


Shadow stamped same image using MdU 2.


Topped with KBShimmer Clearly on Top to finish.



This isn't the best picture but it shows the stamping a little better.


For reference, this was my test nail.  I just like how it turned out better.  But am happy didn't have the chunky glitter to remove!

Digit-al Dozen Does Marble; Day 2

I did these nails a couple weeks ago right after I had cut my nails down to nubs.  As I love the look of dark polish on shorties, I decided to go with a base that is darker than I usually wear!  This is what I came up with for Day 2 of the Digit-al Dozen marble challenge (and yes, there is marble in there!)


Started with a base of three coats of Nails Inc. St. Martin's Lane.  FYI, two coats is fine coverage IRL; only did three as the lighting showed a few bare spots that weren't noticeable to the eye so I ended up putting on a third coat for blogging picture purposes.


Stamped with Forever 21 Gold Metallic using image from Lesly 35.


Topped with KBShimmer Clearly on top.



While I didn't mind the look of just the marble stamping, I wanted a bit more.  So double stamped using another image from same Lesly 35 plate using MdU 101.


Topped with KBShimmer Clearly on Top to finish.

Digit-al Dozen Does Marble; Day 1

It's Digit-al Dozen week!  The theme this month is marble and here, I've chosen a water marble stamping image (as I have no water marble skills, sorry!).   Here's what I came up with!


Did a sponged gradient using OPI Fearlessly Alice and My Pal Joe. Even though I used liquid latex, still had oodles of blue polish at cuticle and unfortunately I couldn't get it off my skin, so sorry about the scary and stained cuticles.  I also love this combination which I think will be making another appearance this week!


Added a layer of FunkyFingers Unicorn Dust.  This was super pretty especially on OPI My Pal Joey.


Topped with KBShimmer Clearly on Top.


Did a stamped gradient using Mdu 1 and 6 using image from BM-XL 210.


BundleMonster (Maniology) BM-XL210.

Winter Snow Nails!

I did these nails before Christmas but wasn't in a terrible rush to share them as I thought they could be used over the winter as they don't look toooo Christmas-y.  I'm sharing today given the snow we received last night!  This is what I came up with!


Started with a base of two coats of Zoya Shawn.


Added a coat of Indigo Bananas Low-Key on a couple of the nails.


Topped with KBShimmer Clearly on Top.


Stamped stripes using UberChic Holiday Jingle with the rest of the fingers being Sugar Bubbles SBS 08 (the middle finger is stamped multiple times with the snowflakes from the image on the ring finger plus I added a couple more of the bigger snowflakes on the ring finger).  Used MdU 1.  Added China Glaze Party Hearty at the tip of the ring finger for colour and interest.


Topped with KBShimmer Clearly on Top to finish.



The snow we got last night isn't expected to last thanks to the mild temperatures that are forecasted tomorrow and over the weekend.  But I can still see snowflakes on my nails as it seems like I've been doing lots of snowflake manis lately.
