The Digit-al Dozen Does Texture Day #5


We have reached the end of The Digit-al Dozen Does Texture Week!  I'm finishing off with a soft, feminine manicure featuring one of my current favorite designs.  I love this!


This shimmery beauty starts off with Liquidus Morganite with a coat of Out the Door top coat.  This beautiful nude-pink has a great shimmer that makes it just outstanding!  Then, I used my dotting tool and OPI Liquid Sand Pussy Galore to create a stained glass design.  The texture dried to a shimmering finish that was just awesome!  I have definitely learned to enjoy textured polishes in nail art throughout this week!


It's a hard call, but this is definitely one of my favorites from the week!  So pretty.  Like I said before, this week has definitely helped me to see how textured polishes can be really special when used properly :)  Which manicure was your favorite?

The Digit-al Dozen Does Texture Day #4


Happy Thursday!  Today's Digit-al Dozen Does Texture manicure features three Zoya PixieDust textured polishes.  I decided to use textured polishes in a manicure that I knew I would love: a splatter mani!


I started with a base of Wet N Wild Wild Shine French White and let it dry for a few minutes.  I then used straws and the following polishes to create the splatters: Zoya PixieDust Solange, Zoya PixieDust Dhara, and Zoya PixieDust Arabella.  I love how this turned out!


What other designs have you tried with textured polishes?  This week has been good because I never really think of using textured polishes in nail art!  Be sure to check out the other Thursday DD manicures below!

The Digit-al Dozen Does Texture Day #3


Hi everyone...happy Wednesday!  Today's manicure is simple, yet graphic and eye-catching!  There were several techniques/supplies I wanted to play with, so I decided to put them all into this manicure.  Chevron decals, negative space/naked nails, and the OPI Beach Sandies come together in this look.


I knew I wanted to use some of the Liquid Sand shades from the Brazil Collection Beach Sandies mini set in a manicure this week, and OPI I'm Brazil Nuts Over You is basically one of my favorites ever (potentially just because of the hilarious name).  I also wanted to use some of the chevron decals that I have had in my stash for about a year...how did I forget to use them?!  I'm so impatient when it comes to letting things dry before applying tape, so I thought this would be a great time to play with a negative space idea (no dry time), and it sort of feels right with this sexy Brazil shade!  The decals were from Make It Stick Designs on Etsy.


I love the simplicity here, and it's sort of fun to show a little skin!  The nail decals were really sticky, so they went on easily and created really crisp lines.  I need to play with these again soon!
