The Digit-al Dozen does Indie Love - Things that are round


Hi all!

Today I've got a combination post for you. I've got the last DD Indie Love combined with 26 Great Nail Art Ideas Things that are round. So, what better than an indie polish with round glitter?


Polishes:
  • Lucky 13 Lacquer - Poof & Bubble
  • Polish My Life - Love Is Calm
  • Lucky 13 Lacquer - Elemental Ward


Base: 2 coats of Poof & Bubble. I added circles and a few dots with Love Is Calm. Top coated with Elemental Ward.




Love, Brethil

The Digit-al Dozen does Indie Love - Purple Dahlia


Hi all!

I've got two indie brands for you, but all holo! ILNP and Foxy Paws are the stars today. Plus nail vinyls from another indie brand called Polished Vino.


Polishes:
  • ILNP - Amanda Hugginkiss
  • ILNP - Grape Alicious
  • ILNP - Indie Go
  • Foxy Paws - Purple Rain
  • Foxy Paws - I'm Blue
  • Lucky 13 Lacquer - Elemental Ward


Base: a smoosh of most of the holo polishes really. I used the Delicate Dahlia nail vinyls and topped it with Indie Go. Elemental Ward as my top coat.



Of course a photo to show the holo, the marble effect does make it less linear, but still pretty.


Love, Brethil

The Digit-al Dozen does Indie Love - Grey leaves


Hi all!

Another day, another indie love: Book of Shadows. I don't know what it is about his polish, but I just adore it. It's just the perfect pink grey metallic polish.


Polishes:
  • Polish My Life - Saint
  • Cirque - Book of Shadows
  • Lucky 13 Lacquer


Base: either 2 coats of Saint or 3 coats of Book of Shadows. I used Whats Up Nails tropical leaves nail vinyls next. Topped with Elemental Ward as always.


Leaves and a beautiful polish...


What's your perfect metallic polish?

Love, Brethil

The Digit-al Dozen does Indie Love - Glitter


Hi all!

Second brand I'm showcasing is Aliquid Lacquer. This is a mani I did 2 years ago... it's been sitting in my vault since then. But this polish is just lovely, I am a sucker for flecks in polishes *winks*.


Polishes:
  • Aliquid Lacquer - Matronalia
  • Lucky 13 Lacquer - Elemental Ward


Base: 2 coats of Matronalia. I placed some loose glitter on top and sealed it in with Elemental Ward.


I love how this glitter shifts from purple to turquoise.


What did you think of the revisit to square nails?

Love, Brethil

The Digit-al Dozen does Indie Love - Galaxy


Hi all!

This week is all about Indie Love! As you know, I love my indie polishes. Today the star is my one and only Different Dimension polish called Discovery. I won it in a giveaway a long while ago.


Polishes:
  • Different Dimension - Discovery
  • Polish My Life - Love is Calm
  • Polish My Life - Stripped
  • Lucky 13 Lacquer - Elemental Ward 


Base: 2 coats of Discovery. With a sponge I dabbed some white and purple to create cloudiness. I used a dotting tool and a nail art brush to add the stars. Of course my favourite indie top coat Elemental Ward to seal it in.


Discovery is such a wonderful polish, duochrome and glittery.


Love, Brethil

Nail Challenge Collaborative presents: Recreate a mani - Distressed


Hi all!

My first recreation is this distressed mani I saw on IG here. Mine's not as delicate, but I do love distressed mani's and combining it with the silver foil just looks even better.


Polishes:
  • Polish My Life - Saint
  • Polish My Life - Peacock Feathers
  • Polish My Life - Birkinberry Bomb
  • Lak door Tijn - purple
  • Lucky 13 Lacquer - Elemental Ward


Base: 2 coats of Saint. I swiped the other polishes on top and added shreds of silver foil. Ended with Elemental Ward of course.


Doesn't the silver foil just give it something extra?


I may have worn another version of this mani that's stuck in the vault....

Love, Brethil

26 Great Nail Art Ideas - Pond mani


Hi all!

Today's prompt is Pond Mani, which is in fact layering a jelly polish with a simple pattern over and over. The original idea is credited to this mani here.


Polishes:
  • Kaleidoscope - Aquarelle tints - 03
  • Born Pretty Store - 18
  • Kaleidoscope - stamping 06 mint
  • Lucky 13 Lacquer - Elemental Ward

I also used stamping plate Hēhē 116.



I alternated a coat of the jelly polish and stamping the fir leaves. I did two or three layers stamping with 18, one coat of Mint and two more coats of 18. Sealed it in with Elemental Ward.


I did like the look of this, although I do feel it would look better if the jelly was less murky.


This mani took forever to dry though, when I woke up in the morning I had managed to get a huge bump in two nails...

Love, Brethil
