The Digital Dozen does Summer: Day 1 - abstract citrus | The Dalai Lama's Nails

Oops! I had a major nail break yesterday – goodbye long, rounded nails. It’s back to the classic, short squarish nails for me. That’s ok, I think I prefer them this length, though it was fun to experiment with the long ones. Today’s Digital Dozen does summer nails are based on an abstract citrus print by Elizabeth Olwen I found while perusing Pinterest. I love looking through Pinterest for prints and patterns. They often inspire my nail art! I thought the citrus print was light and summery without being too in your face. It kind of looks like blueberry lemonade, or something refreshing to drink!

Today’s nail art look was done using 4 shades of Precision lacquer, a brand I got to meet with at Cosmoprof. These shades are from the spring Dreamy collection – which are muted colors that I simply adore. I began by applying three coats of Precision Walking on Air. It’s kind of a dusty lilac, though it does appear to be a bit gray in this photo. The application was so-so, a bit on the runny side, though it did level out and reach opacity after three coats. I used a fine detailing brush and Enlightenment to create the lemons. Enlightenment is more of a chartreuse, though it takes on a yellower glow because of the surrounding colors! I used McDreamy to create the sweeping lines, and Blissful Abyss for the dots. Precision worked very well for art, since the consistency is on the thinner side, I found it flowed very nicely. There are 80 shades of 3-free lacquer. You can purchase Precision for $5.95 on the Precision website.

I topped everything off with a coat of KBShimmer Clearly on Top, followed by Loreal The Matte Velvet top coat.
