The Digit-al Dozen Does Fandom Week: Fandoms Rule!

Final day for The Digit-al Dozen Does Fandom Week and today I bring you some fandoms that I wasn't able to do a full mani because I ran out of time. But many of the ladies did cover these fandoms this week!

For the Lord of the Ring finger (ah man, I so should have put this fandom on my ring finger! D'oh!) I used BarryM Foil Effects Gold and stamped using Konad Black and MoYou Geek 07,

Sherlock nail is Milani White on the Spot with Konad Black MoYou Geek 07. I colored in the face with acrylic paint.

My ring finger is an epic image of many fandoms, it is on the Bundle Monster BM-602 plate and is genius! I stamped using Konad Black onto BarryM Mustard.

And last but not least Harry Potter Deathly Hallows stamped using Konad Black and My Online Shop MJ Jr-31 onto BarryM Caramel.

So ends this amazing week! I had such a great time creating these manis I might even do some more down the road. :)

The Digit-al Dozen Does Fandom Week: Allons-y

Day 4 brings you a very popular and rightly so, amazing fandom of Doctor Who. Now there have been some discussion on what makes you a true Whovian: have you watched all episodes from the very beginning with the first Doctor? Or are you like me who started with the ninth Doctor? But no matter how you look at, we are all obsessed with the lovable man with two hearts!

I used Cult Nails Time Traveler (absolutely fantastic color) for my first two nails with OPI Boyfriend Scales Walls on the other nails. On my index nail I stamped using Konad White and My Online Shop MJ JR-31. Sadly a crack has started to appear on the T.A.R.D.I.S. Eeeks!

My middle finger has the phrase  A Mad Man in a (My Online Shop MJ JR-31 using Konad White). Rightly so. No one madder than the Doctor, but I'd have him on my team any day! I also added Above the Curve Wibbly Wobbly Timey Wimey  to add some sparkle and pizazz!

My ring finger represents my favorite Doctor, number ten. He will always be my favorite. I used Konad Black and stamped using MoYou Geek 07 for the 3D glasses and MoYou Pro 04 for the rose. I colored in the glasses with Konad Red and BarryM Malibu. The rose is colored in with OPI Magenta Muse (love these new color paints!)

And finally on my pinkie is a bit of Gallifreyan (the Doctor's written language). I used Konad Black and MoYou Geek 07.

The Digit-al Dozen Does Fandom: Still Flyin'

Day 3 of The Digit-al Dozen Does Fandom Week and I give you one of the best fandoms ever! I am and forever will be a Browncoat! Still flyin'!

A Browncoat is a fan of the TV Show Firefly (created by Joss Whedon) and it's movie (brought about because of it's fandom) Serenity. This short-lived (at least on TV, thanks FOX) show is about some pretty amazing space cowboys.

I started off with OPI My Vampire is Buff on each of my nails (oh please of please someone see what I did there! Hahahaha!). I used Essie Matte about you as my topcoat. On my index I used MdU Light Gray to stamp some metal panels using Bundle Monster BM-609. The Serenity (the ship) is stamped in Konad Black using My Online Shop MJ Jr-31. This nail represents part of the first scene in the movie Serenity:

My middle finger is stamped with dinosaurs from Bundle Monster BM-611 using BarryM Vanilla and a leaf from Winstonia W113 and MdU Ochre. This nail represents our beloved pilot Wash. I will only show you one image, the dinosaur scene, because the leaf reference is too sad.

My ring finger represents River (also, she can kill you with her mind). I sponged BarryM Chai for the base and stamped using Konad Black and filled in the hands with BarryM Blueberry. "two by two, hands of Blue" is a phrase in the TV series that River quotes. It refers to men who are after River and her brother. These men have some really advance technology that can make you bleed from every orifice. *joy*

And finally my pinkie can have two different meanings. I sponged a ton of different polishes (BarryM Chilli, Mango, Cocoa) and stamped using Konad Black and MdU Papyrus and MoYou London Suki 04 (the writing). I wanted to this to represent the colors of Serenity with the script on it as Mandarin is commonly used in the series. But the script doesn't show up that well and so can also be taken as Jayne's (because they are also his colors, especially wearing his hat) quote: "She is startin' to damage my calm". Because my sponging looks chaotic. 

If you haven't seen this series or movie, please take the time to watch it, you won't be disappointed. You may have withdrawals (thanks FOX).

Today was one of my favorite fandoms! Don't forget to check out the other ladies and what they chose!

The Digit-al Dozen Does Fandom Week: Star Trek

Day 2 of The Digit-al Dozen Does Fandom Week and I bring you one of the most famous fandoms of all: Trekkies or Trekkers (depending on who you talk to and the type of fan they are). And how can I do a fandom themed week without including Star Trek!?

I attempted to use my Sugar Bubbles SB014 plate to create my Spock image. I think I need longer nails for any image to work. The Star Trek symbol is also from the same plate. I used Konad Black to stamp the images. Except for my pinkie in which I used Color Club Harp On It.

For the base colors I used OPI Fiercely Fiona, Zoya Sooki, BarryM Malibu all over Wet n Wild Black Creme to create the shirt colors, and I used Wet n Wild Black Creme on my pinkie. I used Color Club Cherubic and Harp On It with A England Briar Rose and Tristam, and OPI Fiercely Fiona to create a single galaxy nail. Sealed all with HK Girl Top Coat.

Here are some pretty fantastic Star Trek based songs. Enjoy!

The Digit-al Dozen Does Fandom Week: Wait for it......

Surprise! Guess who's still around! Come on, guess! Yep, it's me! This is my first nail art post in almost two months! Dang huh! And this week is The Digit-al Dozen Does Fandom Week! There was no way I would miss this week!

So in good ol' Geeky Owl humor I bring you my first mani for Fandom. Do you get it? My mani is for the number one fan of....wait for! Hahahahaha! Yep, I went there and yep, I did that. Cheesy, absolutely. But I had to come back with an unusual mani that fits my humor! :)

As you can see anxiety has reduced my nails to nubs, sometimes painful nubs. And I have a new computer and have to learn to use a new editing software >_<

But I decided to rock out the nubs with OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls. I stamped using Konad Black and Qgirl-001 for the fans and Qgirl-011 for the meme faces. I also tried to stamp the heart from Bundle Monster BM-601 but it didn't show up that well and I filled it in with Konad Red and China Glaze Ruby Pumps. And of course I used HK Girl Top Coat.

So, what do you think? Does this mani represent a fandom? :)

It's great to be back and I hope to be sticking around. I already have 4 out of the 5 manis for this week created (just need to edit and write up the posts). So you have me at least for this week! I also have ideas for NCC this month. Hopefully they turn out! 

As usual don't forget to check out the other amazing ladies of the Digit-al Dozen who have been super supportive these past two months! And thank you to all those that have stuck around and supported me! Love ya!

Check out which fandom was represented today with the other ladies!

Hi, Everybody!

So I know I have been MIA for awhile now. And I miss you all! I've had a lot of things going on at work (kind of sucks being an adult) and then a lot of personal health issues that I am trying to deal with. 

So though I may not be active on my blog, I am still reading my blogfeed and trying to figure out the keyboard to my new laptop. Ugh! It took me a bazillion times just to write this! New keyboard is shifted over to the left a bit and so all my key strokes are wrong.

I do so hope that I am able to return to my blogging. But for right now I am going to find myself again, I will try to post a bit here and there to let you know how I am doing.

Thank you all for being such wonderful people! It's nice to know that there are still decent people in this crazy world we live in. And the polish/blogger community is full of such amazing people!

Until then..........

The Digit-al Dozen Does Childhood: Lisa Frank

Welcome to another month and another week of The Digit-al Dozen!

First off: I'm sorry I have been MIA for the last month. It's been one of those months where I just couldn't really function properly, you know? But I hope to back more often (more than just DD week!) this month! I have a review of some polish, some makeup, NCC theme, and I want to talk about my skincare regime that I hinted at a few months back. Phew! I hope to get to it all! 

It's great to be back! Now onto our regularly scheduled program (because DD week is the only consistent thing about my blog! Hahahaha!)

I am a child of the 80's. Born in 1981, I lived through all the craziness that was the 80's. The slouch socks, the bangle bracelets (the band The Bangles, Walk Like an Egyptian anyone?), the Garbage Pail Kids, the best Saturday morning cartoons and after school specials. Yep, the 80's were awesome!

Nothing screams 80's more than any Lisa Frank design! 

This image was my inspiration for today's mani. Totally 80's right? Like, totally!

I started off with a base color of Layla Softouch Effects 04 (Neon Pink) on my first two fingers and OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls on the other two. I blobbed and squished colors: Layla Softouch Effects 04 (Neon Pink), Layla Softouch Effects 09 (Aqua Zen), Milani Totally 80s (how appropriate! didn't pay attention to the name until now!), China Glaze Papaya Punch, and China Glaze Gothic Lolita. I then stamped using Cheeky CH-11 (index finger) and Bundle Monster BM-613 (middle finger) and Konad Black (used for all nails). I colored parts of the cheetah's face using MBSW and Totally 80s. On the other two nails I stamped using Konad Q1 (remember when this was THE plate everyone wanted!). I filled in the spots using the plethora of polishes listed above. Topped it all off with HK Girl Top Coat.

So, like, what do you think? Isn't is like so fetch and awesome!? Like if you don't love it, well, gag me with a spoon because that's bogus. (You're welcome).
