Digital Dozen Does Colour Contrast, Thursday

In case you're wondering why I'm jumping in mid week for Digital Dozen Does Colour Contrast week, it's because I started a new job on Monday, and have been growing out and healing a severe break/cut on my ring finger.

Today's look is a bit of a cheat using black as my contrast on this purple Gelaze Spontaneous. This was a conscious decision though, because there's nothing I like to wear more than a crisp black or white on a more subtle colour. For the look, I did two coats of the purple gel and added a black French gel tip. Once cured, I stamped in regular black polish and sealed in gel top coat.

I liked this look, and actually received a ton of compliments considering it wasn't overly complicated.  Don't forget to check out the looks the girls have been working on in the Inlinkz below.

Cheers all,

Digital Dozen Does Colour Contrast, Friday.

So, I was looking for inspiration for this look for Digital Dozen week and happened to watch Mickey's Twice Upon A Christmas linked here with my kids on Wednesday night. We start Christmas Specials in November! We were watching a segment that stars Minnie and Daisy as competitors in a figure skating competition. They were wearing colours that totally reminded me of Lottie Dottie from KBShimmer, and this look was born. I used two coats of the polish for my insta-contrast in a bottle and then added double line stamping stripes to represent the ribbons the characters twirl in the competition.

Weird inspiration I know, but a glitter cruelly was perfect for this week...once I thought of it. As an FYI, the Mickey's Twice Upon A Christmas is amazing! I have some more colour contrast looks coming up soon on nail tips as I kept up my freehand practice for fun while I was growing out my ring finger. 

Cheers all,
