BP-L049 Stamping with Colombian Polishes!


Hello lovelies!

A while back my Colombian friends gifted me these beautiful Wendy nail polishes and I have been using them a lot. They also go very well together, so I created a gradient with two of them:

Blue Monday Mani


Hi lovelies!

Happy Blue Monday! Although it's supposed to be the bluest day of the year, I am not feeling it... it's actually been quite alright. So I thought a Happy Blue Monday Mani was in order:

The Digit-al Dozen does Decades - Feasible Future


Hello lovelies!

Decades - that doesn't necessarily mean past or present, right? Right. So let's skip a whole century from yesterday and see what's ahead of us, or our (grand)children. But at the same time, let's keep it positive, what with all the stuff that's going on in the world right now. Therefore I based this manicure on a feasible theory that brings hope to the entire planet: the theory that it is possible to have the entire world powered by renewable energy in 2090. All of us will have gone green! 


I started with two easy coats of Celestial Cosmetics "Oberon" and then I stamped with BPS bright green stamping polish and BP-L047. I sealed it all in with SV. Very simple, but I loved the tone-on-tone!



I loved having an excuse to wear green nails ;) Do you like wearing green nail polish?

This was the last DD mani of the month, but before you go, be sure to check out the other ladies' manicures below!

The Digit-al Dozen does Decades - Neon Nineties!


Hi lovelies!

I grew up in the 90's. My earliest fashion memories are from the early years of that particular decade, hence I chose it to be the theme of one of my manis for The Digit-al Dozen does Decades! I remember a lot of neon and triangles and loud shirts and track suits... Awful when you think  about it now, but actually awesome for nail designs, so here we go!

The Digit-al Dozen does Decades - Sixties Style Icon


Hello lovelies!

Although the novella "Breakfast at Tiffany's" was set in the early 40's, the movie based on the novella, that established Audrey Hepburn as an eternal style icon, was set in the early 60's - at the time it was filmed. That's why I chose this as inspiration for my hommage to the 60's!

The Digit-al Dozen does Decades - Terrific Twenties

Hello lovelies!

Another month, another prompt! This month, The Digit-al Dozen does Decades! And with my newly-acquired art deco pattern plate, the decision for the first manicure was made: The Roaring Twenties during which Art Deco first became popular. (And since 'roaring' means 'terrific', I had my alliterating blog title, whoohoo!) I decided to give it a little twist though, slightly straying from the traditional black-and-gold designs that immediately come to mind. I did incorporate the two aforementioned shades, but decided that my base should be different, just for the hell of it!

Flaming Flowers - We wear pink 4 Chrissy


Hi lovelies!

Today a bunch of us are wearing pink to celebrate Chrissy, the maker of Turtle Tootsy Polishes, being 5 years breast cancer free! I don't own any TTPs, but I've enjoyed looking at other peoples swatches a lot.
