When Sassy Shelly posted her My Little Pony Cutie Marks during Fandom week – well, I just nearly had a heart attack. Ok, slight exaggeration. However OMG THEY ARE SO CUTE! I really had to convince myself not to do more floral nails – and Shelly has some gorgeous floral manicures. But I have loved these Cutie Marks, and now is the time.
I am beyond excited for today’s post. I’m also a little nervous, because I so look up to gorgeous freehand looks, and I’ve tackled one of her gorgeous freehand looks! I loved this vintage fabric floral nail art from the moment Lindsey posted it – who am I kidding, I love all her art 🙂 I was really drawn to the colors in this look, in addition to the pretty pretty florals.
I am breaking the floral trend (I just love all florals, I can’t help it!) to do one of my favorite looks from Nails Like Lace – oh my gosh, how cute is this Fred Flintstone?! When Amber first posted this look in geometric week, I just couldn’t get over how perfect it was. The color, the shapes – I love everything about it. I don’t often do nail art in this style, and I really enjoyed recreating Amber’s amazing (fun, cute, awesome, everything) nail art. Fred Flintstone nail art!
Today’s Digital Dozen re-creation is a twofer! I was trying to figure out how I could honor two ladies at once, when I stumbled across Geeky Owl’s review of The Lacquerologist’s book! Aha, I thought to myself. Here’s Kirsten’s awesome and creative interpretation of a design by Emily. And so I set out to recreate the splash floral, using Kirsten’s color scheme and floral style.
I am BEYOND excited for this week’s Digital Dozen challenge. We are celebrating our Digi-versary by re-creating favorite past Digital Dozen manicures. The ladies of the Digital Dozen are very talented, so this week is an exciting challenge, to be sure!
I love nail care products. I am constantly applying various creams and oils to my hands, with the hopes that I will attain the *perfect* nails and cuticles. That means that I am always searching for and trying new products. When I find one I like – ooooh, boy! I become a little obsessed with it.
Ah. That is the sound of me relaxing. Or – of me being relaxed. I am relaxed! I just returned from vacation, you see! I was visiting friends and family for a week or so, and then I went to Maine for my family’s annual trip. I look forward to this trip all year; I’ve been going since I was 10 or 11! We go with a group of friends to the same house – even though I’m 30, I still sleep on the floor with the “kids!” We kayak, swim in the freezing ocean, pick sea glass, and cook delicious meals. I love it there, and I love my Maine friends. They are like a second family to me.
I feel like my whole world has been turned upside down since I have started trying subscription boxes. I completely and totally get it now! It’s like getting an amazing package with surprise things you like! I’ve been totally blown away by BoxyCharm lately – it’s like they can read my mind. I don’t know how they do it! Anyways, I’m a bit late reviewing this box, so I’m going to be posting my review of the August box this week. I will catch up! Anyways, this is my BoxyCharm review for the July 2015 box.
Today’s Digital Dozen post is special – it’s our diner hop! That’s right – the first every Digital Dozen blog hop! Now, the theme is food, so we all picked something you could get off the menu at a diner.
