The Digital Dozen: Black - Day 3

Day 3 of The Digital Dozen Black, brings a fun pattern as accent nails. I found this pattern on Pinterest (my favorite place to inspiration) and I tried my best to translate it onto my nails.

I started off with Painted Polish Midnight Mischief on most nails and then Madam Glam Cashmere on the other two. Cashmere is the softest grey possible, it's so subtle, but such a pretty color. I then dotted on dots and added stripes in black. Once those were dry, I used more cashmere to stipple on some distressing to mimic the pattern.




I really love the way this look came together. It was an added bonus that it was so easy to do. Be sure to check out all the other ladies black looks below.

Enjoy & until next time, Amy Lee

The Digital Dozen: Black - Day 2

Since day 2 of our Digital Dozen Black-fest is Valentine's Day, I just had to get a little festive and in the holiday spirit. My holiday was super boring (HELLO it's Tuesday), but the hubs and I went out to dinner over the weekend and he did send me cookies instead of flowers. That man just gets me.

For today's look, I started with a fun base. It's SugarPill Meteora,  a blackened base filled with colorful glitters. It's pretty sheer going on, so to get it opaque I had to use three coats. Thankfully, it's easy to apply and has great glitter payoff.




I then went in with a heart pattern from MoYou London Pro Collection XL-08 and created a gradient stamp using the following Mundo De Unas polishes, Reddish, Nabu, Orchid, Tulip.




It's a fun simple look, but I love the way the the hearts pop against the black base and the glitters pop through. Be sure to check out all the other fun looks below.

The Digital Dozen: Black - Day 1

Hey All! Long time no talk. I'm sorry for disappearing forever, but some things happened and it was necessary. I'm finally getting back into the swing of things again and starting this month off with The Digital Dozen. The prompt this month is Black, which is very anti-Valentines of us. It has made for a challenge coming up with everything but it's been fun.

So forgive my pictures, because I'm a bit out of practice. I'm sorry in advance. I had fun playing with thermals in the first mani. This is Bow Polish Thermal Top Coat in it's cold state. It's a deep black with a scattered holographic finish.




However, in its warm state you get a surprise. Underneath, I've stamped on a fun pattern from Uber Chic UC 4-03  in Painted Polish Midnight Mischief.  It makes for a fun little surprise that no one expects.




Check out all the other talented ladies in the link up below. We'll be back with more black mani's tomorrow.

Enjoy & until next time, Amy Lee

Digital Dozen: Day 1 - Contrasting Colors

I'm back with another round of the Digital Dozen prompts. This week we are doing Color Contrast and this is a bit new for me. I'm not used to picking such opposing colors and pairing them. Although, that is the point of the group, stretching our art in new directions.

Today, I went for an interesting combo. I paired a coral pink with a bright green.  The coral is one of my favorites OPI Live.Love.Carnival and it is stamped with Mundo de Unas Green and MoYou London Pro Collection XL 20.




It certainly is a loud combination. Be sure to check out all the other beautiful contrasting manis below. See you tomorrow for another look.

Enjoy & until next time, Amy Lee

Digit-al Dozen: Vampy & #TheLacquerRing: Plum

I'm in love with my Day 4 look for Digit-al Dozen: Vampy. I'm also doubling up on prompts, this one is doing double duty for #TheLacquerRing: Plum prompt.  It's the perfect color with the perfect accent. My base is OPI Casino Royale a deep plum color. It's absolutely stunning.




I then went in with Painted Polish Midnight Mischief and the Pueen 73 stamping plate to add on some roses. I love the way this came together.




See you tomorrow for the last day of Digit-al Dozen.

Enjoy & until next time, Amy Lee

Digit-al Dozen: Vampy

Day 3 of the Digit-al Dozen. When I think of Vampy, my mind goes to Dita Von Tees. She always has a classic half moon red nail look that she always rocks. I decided to my version with a little twist.

I started off with base of OPI Glints of Glinda to have a nice sheer base. Then using a french tip guide I sectioned off my nail and added in F.U.N. Lacquer Goddess of the Dawn, a vibrant red holographic polish. This is the ultimate vampy look in my opinion.




Catch you tomorrow for Day 4!

Enjoy & until next time, Amy Lee

Digit-al Dozen: Vampy

Day 2 of Vampy with the Digit-al Dozen. In my head this seemed a lot more vampy, because I thought the darkest color would come out ALOT darker in my gradient. 

Also....why am I the WORST at gradients? I always struggle and they are messed up in more than one way. It's super annoying. 

Anywho...today I did a gradient featuring Cirque Colors Chelsea Girl, Deco, and Jane on Jane Street. I then topped it off with some crystal accents and covered my middle nail entirely. I always think the full jewel encrusted nail is so vampy and sexy. Anyone else with me on that?
