St. Patrick's Day Nail Art

Today I felt like a combination of neon and St. Patrick's day! For my base I used China Glaze mmm, Lll by lll and lll by lll.  I then used images from Bundle Monster BM-lll for all my St. Patrick's images. (I'm out right now doing an activity with the kids, but will fill in the blanks shortly!)

If possible, this one was even brighter in person. If you head out tonight for the festivities, please enjoy responsibly!

Cheers all,

Digital Dozen Does Art, Day 4

SO the idea for this one is a little obscure! Back when the Digital Dozen did Decades, I was fascinated by the hippie weird and unique floral fabric and wall paper patterns I came across from the 70's. I wanted to try again, and I even did one for one of my looks that month linked here. As I noted in my post, it's not that they are 'pretty'(...I may have used the word tacky), it's more that if you see a pattern from the 70's you know what you are looking at!

I chose to combine elements from two brown wallpaper images I found in a google search, and this is what I came up with! My base is a Sally Hansen Magnetic called Kinetic Copper, and the rest is a mix of dotting, freehand and stamping images.

I had a little trouble with smearing after my matte coat, but this turned out exactly how it was in my mind...and got removed immediately! I'm glad I came back to this style, it was fun.

Digital Dozen Does Art, Day 3

When trying to plan out my week for Digital Dozen Does Art I ended up on IG looking at at all the great doodle artists I follow  @rootje23, one of my favourites, and she does lots of feather work. They are a little more complex then my look here, but I tried! The big Feather is freehand acrylic paints and the pinky feathers are stamping. My Mrs. P's Nail Potions is called Peacocky.

I really liked this, although I wish I could have done something a little more like the IG doodles!
Don't forget to check out my girls looks below. This week has been pretty full of complex freehand manicures.

Digital Dozen Does Art, Day 2.

So as soon as I knew we were doing art week I planned this manicure. I used to study art for fun and one of my favourite artists was Kandinsky, as you can see by the book in my photo. I used a Moyou Artist Collection image for this stamping, which actually is a recreation of a Kandinsky painting. I used a bunch of Color Club neon polishes to create decals on my silicone mat, and the glitter topper is from Ruby White Tips.

This was definitely a fun one for me and I spent awhile just cruising through my art books beforehand as well. I should also try decals on my mat more, but I always get intimidated by the idea of applying them. All that work to then maybe wreck them.

Don't forget to see what masterpieces my girls have created today!

Digital Dozen Does Art Day 1

To start off Digital Dozen Art week I've created this cute freehand mix and match look. I wanted to do a floral and found this great painting online. Unfortunately I couldn't find any information for the artist. I created my version in a red, black and grey pallet. My floral and dots are all acrylic paints and  that great red micro is L.A Colors Electrified.

I definitely struggled with some of the fine lines on this one. I think more floral practice is in order! Don't forget to check out my Digital Dozen lovelies below!

Neon Roses Nail Art

I created this look over the weekend because I've been aching for some more neon. Winter is dragging, and neons always feel like summer. This look was one I saved to recreate ages ago from @deanne29 on Instagram. I was going to link the account, but it appears she's stopped posting.

My bases and flowers were an unnamed Neon Green from Color Club and Choco-Latte from Sally Hansen. The black details are all acrylic paint.

I straight up loved everything about this, and I'm totally doing it again soon!

Cheers all,

Red Zebra Nail Art!

Just going through my un-posted drafts in the blog folders on this relaxing Sunday afternoon and found this cute glittering animal print that I never posted...for some unknown reason. I'm loving the combo of Essie Penny Talk on whatever raspberry micro glitter that is. I could find it and the Bundle Monster plate number, but I'm too snuggled up right now listening to music in my flannel sheets.

If you insist on knowing, shoot me a comment below. Hope everyone else is enjoying their weekend!
