We've reached the end!! For today I scrapped the whole design I started with and just did some fun alternating patterns. As you can see, it's STILL freaking storming like the end of the world outside. In fact I've lost power several times just trying to get these up. :( I love storms but this is getting ridiculous! At any rate I hope you enjoyed this week's designs. Check out the other girls art below! Thanks for joining us for another fun week of art!
OK ya'll I apologize in advance for today's look. Originally I intended to do a tape mani over the look from yesterday and just let the colors peek through. Only thing is I couldn't get any of my striping tape to stick to my nails! So I scrapped that and decided to stamp instead. This cracked stamp looked super cool on the plate but it was much more open than I thought it would be and for some reason the stamp came out very translucent. In a nutshell, I just didn't like it. One thing that's great about top coating in between stamping is...
You can wipe it off and start over!! Over the 4th of July weekend I started playing with free-handed open leopard print and I thought perhaps a little leopard could save this fun base pattern. I actually really liked it and, of course I LOVE fitting leopard into these challenges!! Only thing is when I went to photograph it was storming heavily (again) and all the pictures look so blurry! :( As I'm on a strict time limit to get these mani's in at the moment I didn't have time to wait for it to let up to take better pics but it's a reminder that I need to really work on getting my light box set up and operable. So today you get two fails. :/ Oh well, live and learn. You can still see some awesome art today by following the links below!!
So here we go with day three!! As you can see I've only just added onto yesterday's waterfall by basically doing a reverse waterfall on the bottom. I started with the idea of really lining these up neatly and making sort of a striped pattern with breaks of white in between but then I wanted to fill the space more so I started dragging them together more. I also dabbled in the idea of glitter on the top but then I just really liked the effect and decided to stop here! I might play with this idea more in the future because I think it could be really cool with mixed textures or finishes! Check out the other girls art below and stay tuned for massive fail day tomorrow! ;P
Day two of neon week has arrived. To be honest I wasn't sure I was going to be able to get through this week as I'm still working 50+ hours a week and tending to a sick hamster. So the only way I knew I could get any of these up was to go back to basics. For the original two Digital Dozen challenges I gave myself the extra challenge of layering my looks. So day one I'd start with something and then each day I would add to it. That was the plan for this challenge too although I had some hiccups along the way which you'll see! At any rate I started out small with this neon waterfall. This was basically the only day there was any sun too so it's nice and bright and happy but it was short lived! Check out the other girls art below!!
It's time for another week of art with The Digital Dozen! This week our them is neon. I actually only own about three neon colors so this will be an interesting week for me. I started out today with this simple look which is meant to be like neon lights. I used a nail art pen for the letters because I wanted them to have a sort of raised appearance and they turned out decent though not as well as I'd hoped! Next time I might work on a way to give them a glowing effect. I hope you enjoy them and don't forget to check out the other girls art below! :)
This is just a quick post today! Sorry to say it's not very patriotic either but I still hope all my US followers are having a great, festive 4th of July! A few weeks ago I picked up the first new polishes I've bought in a long while, and this one was among them. I normally don't go for the whole shaped glitter thing but I love the pink glitter and little flowers in this one! It's very girly and soft. I layered it over Zoya Leah, which seemed very lavender to me until the pink went on and now it seems more taupe. Still I quite liked the mix of the neutral with the pastel glitter. I hope to have some new posts for you guys very soon! This coming week my baby Robo dwarf hamster, Tillie, is having a surgery so I'm going to be pretty occupied...
...but I'm trying to get some things prepared for you! Enjoy the holiday! What's your favorite shape glitter polish?
