The Digit-al Dozen does Mythical Creatures - Dragons

Hey there!  To end off The Digit-al Dozen's Mythical Creatures week, we also have Nail Crazies Unite prompt of Red & Black Hobbies.  How can anyone combine such specific themes, you ask.  Well I managed to do it and ended up with my favourite mani of the week.  For my hobby, I chose reading.  I love reading, especially at the lake in the summers (I admit that I don't read nearly enough in winter).  I have read the Game of Thrones books and watched the show, sometimes repeatedly.  I also listened to the entire Binge Mode podcast series on it.  In other words, GoT takes enough time that it is also practically a hobby.  And there's DRAGONS!!!  Take that super specific prompts....combo'ed!

The Digit-al Dozen does Mythical Creatures - Fairies

Hey there!  It's the fourth day of The Digit-al Dozen's Mythical Creatures week and today is one I attempted twice and I'm still shaking my head at it.  Maybe it's because I think fairies are so cute and magical but I really only have a couple stamping plates with fairy images.  Unfortunately neither of my goes at this, turned out nearly as whimsical as I was hoping.  After these, I gave up.  It's as good a fairy mani as we're going to get from me this month.

The Digit-al Dozen does Mythical Creatures - Flying Pigs

Hey there!  For the third day of The Digit-al Dozen I have some nail art I never would've imagined doing - flying pigs.  Frequently when I'm trying to come up with ideas, I ask my sister to start listing off the first things she thinks of for a theme.  For this one, I already had my own list but I asked her anyway and amazingly we both thought of flying pigs.  What are the chances?  So of course I had to do it.  Thank goodness there is actually a flying pig image on one of the plates I have!

The Digit-al Dozen does Mythical Creatures - Phoenix

Hey there!  It's Day 2 of The Mythical Creatures week.  Today I channelled a former DD member, Cheyenne from CDB Nails and used her amazing fire mani as a base for some phoenix nail art.  I don't actually know very much about the phoenix except that I seem to really like them on my nails.  This isn't the first phoenix nails I've done and I'm sure it won't be the last.

The Digit-al Dozen does Mythical Creatures - Unicorns

Hey there!  It's a new Digit-al Dozen week...woohoo!  This month we're tackling Mythical Creatures. At first I didn't really love the prompt mostly because I couldn't really think 5 unique mythical creatures but I ended up really liking some of the designs I have for you this week.  Today's mani is one that I loved.  I have a feeling we'll see lots of unicorns this week and I can't wait.  I think these turned out really pretty.  I actually liked the base so much that I didn't want to cover it up but it had to be done.  I did take a photo before I stamped though so you can see it.

26 Great Nail Art Ideas - Love (but no pink or red)

Hey there!  Since it was Valentine's Day earlier this week, today's 26 Great Nail Art Ideas challenge was to do a love-themed mani but there was a twist.  No pink or red!  I have to admit that I do immediately think of pink and red when I think Valentine's so I liked this prompt.  But I did just realize that lots of my V-Day manis this year had different colors.  Yay me!

My Recent Valentine's Day Nail Stamping

Hey there!  Happy Valentine's Day to all the lovely folks out there!  I'm a single lady so I'm not celebrating, except to go out for beer and wings with one of my friends right away.  But I wanted to stop in and quickly post the Valentine's Day nail art I've been wearing over the last week or so, including my current mani (the first one I'm posting here).  It also happens to be the Nail Challenge Collaborative's Love month so there should be lots of love-themed mani in the links at the end of this for you to browse.  If you're curious about any of the products I used for mine, it's all down below.
