The Digital Dozen does...Summer!

5:00 AM


It's time for another Digital Dozen challenge!! This week the challenge is Summer and I struggled with this so much at first but then I ended up with more ideas than I could handle!! I wanted to capture all the great things about summer while still keeping it relatively simple.  You're going to have to excuse my nubs and terrible cuticles this week. Unfortunately, I was recently diagnosed with CFS/ME and it's made this week quite miserable.  Tests, doctor visits, lack of sleep and numerous medication changes have just absolutely wrecked my nails, my skin and my motivation.  After I completed my last design for this week one of my nails actually cracked halfway down the nail plate for...well basically no reason whatsoever.  I did get a paraffin dip about halfway through and it helped some but at any rate...my apologies. So these nails are meant to look like pool water.  What's better about summer than sitting around the pool with a cold drink and a good book?  Or taking a dip on a really hot day?  Not a whole lot in my book!


After I did these I added some glitter for a "sparkling" water kind of look. I didn't love it as much as the other but I thought I'd show you how it looked anyway!! Which way do you prefer it?
