The Digit-al Dozen Does Music - Music Devices Through the Years

It's November! And you know what that means? Yep! Another installment of The Digit-al Dozen! This month our topic is music! Music is such a great inspiration! I had a lot of fun coming up with some ideas. So here we go!

This mani represents 4 devices used through the years to play music.

First we have the good old record (I promise it's not a scary demon eye!). I remember going through my mom's record collection when I was young and listening to the Beatles, The Mamas and The Papas, and many musicals. But I think my favorite record growing up was Little Red Caboose. Loved this record! To this day I still sing Little Red Caboose and Rag Mop!

My middle finger represents a cassette tape (I also promise it is not a robot or a face!). Man I loved my collection of tapes! I had all of The New Kids on the Block tapes! Oh baby! ;) And creating mix tapes! Oh yeah, I was queen!

My ring finger represents the golden age of compact discs or CDs. I know, I know, we still use them today.  But I remember my first CD I ever bought: The Cranberries To the Faithful Departed. Still have the CD and still listen to it! :)

And finally my pinky finger is an iPod. My first iPod was a Nano 2nd generation. I thought it was the coolest thing ever! Mine was green. :)

Index: Pure Ice Platinum Magic Base Coat, Finger Paints Black Expressionism, and Zoya Sooki.

Middle: Leighton Denny Berry Nice, Finger Paints Black Expressionism, and Pure Ice Platinum Magic Base Coat.
Ring: Pure Ice Platinum Magic Base Coat and Nail Savvy Chrome.
Pinky: China Glaze Cha Cha Cha, Finger Paints Black Expressionism, and Pure Ice Platinum Magic Base Coat.

  2. oh my gosh!!!that's the cutest musical mani I ever seen!! love the tape!!! ♥ is like a little scary and cute face! :)
