The Digit-al Dozen Does Texture Week: Damask!

Final day! I made it through and um, yeah, here is the final texture post for The Digit-al Dozen. Worst of the worst! Hahahahaha! In my head it worked out and I tried multiple times (normally I don't!). But alas, all I got was this weird moss like damask and not the velvet kind that you usually see! Hahahaha!

First I tried covering the whole design with flocking powder but that failed! So I decided to just do a few spots! Yikes!

But I did end up making a really freaky face there on my ring finger! See it? Scary!

I used Milani White on the Spot (two coats), Konad Black, MoYou Pro 04, HK Girl Top Coat, and flocking powder!

Phew! It's done! Until next month...............

The Digit-al Dozen Does Texture Week: Fringe!

Ok, so today I get a little silly with The Digit-al Dozen Does Texture Week! Fringe! Or whatever it is! It re minds me of the Leg Lamp from A Christmas Story or the back of someone's head because it's ridiculous! 

I started with two coats of Barry M Plum (though you can't really see it that much). Used a little bit of HK Girl Top Coat on the base of my nails and placed the fringe/fiber stuff on top! Voila you get, um.....whatever this is!

So I thought I would trim it up and see what it would look like with a top coat. Oh, man, sorry for this next picture! Here I used HK Girl Top Coat and this is what it looked like:

Yikes! Nailed it? Nope failed it! Hahahahaha! It's like yucky greasy hair! Bleh! It's like the girl in the well from The Ring! Oh well, it's just a blog post, who's going to see it? Or wait you did! >_< 

7 Days! Muwahahahaha! (I hope someone caught what I did there!)

Don't forget to check out what the other ladies did, I'm sure it's loads better! :)

The Digit-al Dozen Does Texture Week: Splatter!

Another day of The Digit-al Dozen Week Does Texture! Today I used some Zoya PixieDust polishes and attempted a splatter. And guess what, I was a derp and forgot to taped off around my nails so PixieDust went ALL OVER THE PLACE! It was impossible to get it all off my skin, so please excuse the remnants! :)

I started off with Zoya London and splattered using Stevie and Tomoko. Meh, I wasn't too impressed with it. I used OPI Glitter Off  as a base coat, at least that made it easier to take it off! :)

The Digit-al Dozen Does Texture Week: Lace!

Day 2 of The Digit-al Dozen Does Texture Week! This was one of the first ideas I had and hoped it would work out. After finishing mine I found a tutorial of Lace Nails by Top Coat It, it's very informative and well done, you should check it out!

I used two coats of Leighton Denny Berry Nice. I used a thicker coat of HK Girl Top Coat and pressed the lace before it dried. I think it's really fun looking! There are a few bits I wished I had trimmed a bit better, but I still think it's fun!

Here it is with OPI a Matte Top Coat. I was curious what it would look like. I think I personally like it better without the Matte Top Coat.

What do you think?

The Digit-al Dozen Does Texture Week: Dandelions!

Welcome to another Digit-al Dozen Week! We have some few new faces in the group now! Welcome new ladies! This week the theme is texture. Ugh! This has got to be the hardest theme for me yet! So I thought I would start out with my best of the week!


I started out with two coats of OPI Planks A Lot. I then stamped used Konad White and Konad Black with MoYou Pro 04. I sealed the stamp with a layer of HK Girl Top Coat. After that dried, I dipped a toothpick in Sally Hansen Double Duty Strengthening Base & Top Coat and sprinkled some flocking powder over it!

I really love how it turned out! It's so cute and delicate!

The Never Ending Pile Challenge: A Random Untried!

Today's prompt is a random untried polish. Phew, that's easy, just let me dig around and narrow it down! Hahaha! I chose China Glaze Make Some Noise (two coats) and stamped with Konad Black using Messy Mansion MM14. Top it off with some HK Girl Top Coat and voila! Beautiful and easy mani! Got a lot of compliments with this one at work! :)

GOT Polish Challenge: Coral

Well, it's been awhile since I participated in the GOT (Golden Oldie Thursday) Polish Challenge. This is where you have to use a polish that is older than a year and follow the prompt. Well, I decided to use OPI DS Reflection because I saw Kerrie at PishPosh and Polish use it last week and reminded me how gorgeous it is!

Today's GOT prompt is Coral.

OPI DS Reflection was the first DS I ever bought. And it is gorgeous! Formula is fabulous! This is two coats. It's a coral/red/salmon color with scattered shimmer and holo. The first picture is in my light box with a flash and this one above is just in my light box. This polish stayed on for awhile without much chipping! Got to love those kinds of polishes!
