The Digit-al Dozen does Inspired By Each Other Week - Neon


Hi all!

This last inspired by mani is inspired by this Neon design done by my fellow Dutch blogger Manis & Makeovers.


Polishes:
  • Essence - 33 wild white ways
  • Barry M - GNP13 Papaya
  • Barry M - GNP18 Mango
  • Kaleidoscope - stamping 01 black
  • Lucky 13 Lacquer - Elemental Ward

I also used Hēhē stamping plate 073.



Base: 2 coats of colour. I stamped with black, then added the colour onto the stamper and transferred it to slightly damp layer of top coat. Sealed everything in with Elemental Ward.


I quite like this neony combo with black and white, it's very striking.


Keeping this short, have a lovely weekend!

Love, Brethil

The Digit-al Dozen does Inspired By Each Other Week - Watercolour stamping


Hi all!

This mani is inspired by this watercolour stamping mani from Kimett Kolor. I have a bunch of these watercolour polishes, but I had never stamped with them before. And they do stamp!


Polishes:
  • Essence - 33 wild white ways
  • Born Pretty Store - DH02 The Morning Rays
  • Essence - 01 absolute pure + a few drops of turquoise (homemade watercolour polish)
  • Kaleidoscope - Aquarelle tints 03
  • Kaleidoscope - Aquarelle tints 05
 

  • Kaleidoscope - Aquarelle tints 07
  • Kaleidoscope - Aquarelle tints 08
  • Kaleidoscope - Aquarelle tints 10
  • Kaleidoscope - Aquarelle tints 11
  • Lucky 13 Lacquer - Elemental Ward

I also used Hēhē stamping plate 108.



Base: 2 coats of wild white ways. Using all the watercolour polishes I stamped the splotch image onto all nails, layer after layer. I ended with a coat of Elemental Ward.



I absolutely adore the end result! Will you be trying to stamp with this type of polish?

Love, Brethil

The Digit-al Dozen does Inspired By Each Other Week - Black Leopard


Hi all!

Today's mani is inspired by Polish Those Nails Abstract Before The Storm mani. It reminded me of leopard print, even if it wasn't meant as a leopard print.


Polishes:
  • Foxy Paws - Some People Have Real Problems
  • Lucky 13 Lacquer - Dark Matter
  • Mundo de Unas - 34 Dark Grey
  • Lucky 13 Lacquer - Elemental Ward

I also used Hēhē stamping plate 076.



Base: 2 coats of Some People Have Real Problems. I stamped the leopard print, first with Dark Matter and on my accent nails also with Dark Grey. Ended with Elemental Ward.




With the sun shining outside a lot lately, I do need to wear holos more.

Love, Brethil

The Digit-al Dozen does Inspired By Each Other Week - Spring Leaves


Hi all!

Today, my mani is inspired by Painted Fingertips Spring Leaves mani. I had intended for this to have a darker base, but as you'll see I totally forgot the polish I used as my base is a thermal. So I just went with it...


Polishes:
  • Lucky 13 Lacquer - Whoever Said I Was Merciful?
  • Kaleidoscope - Stamping 80 light green
  • Lucky 13 Lacquer - Elemental Ward

I also used Bundle Monster's BM-S226 stamping plate.



Base: 2 coats of Whoever Said I Was Merciful?. I stamped with the light green stamping polish and the leafy image on top. Ended with Elemental Ward.


Because it's rather warm here, I had to stand in front of a fan to cool down my nails. I didn't want to fiddle around with water.


Love, Brethil

The Digit-al Dozen does Inspired By Each Other Week - Cacti


Hi all!

It's been a while since I posted anything. I've been on holiday for 3 weeks and had the flu, which left me with little energy to write blog posts. But it's Digit-al dozen week again, so expect a post each weekday! This week is all about being inspired about the other DD members! I'm starting this week with cacti! Inspired by The Polished Koi's mani.


Polishes:
  • Lucky 13 Lacquer - Breath of the Wildlings
  • Essence - LE Tribal Summer - 01 WAKA-WAKA
  • Essence - 106 free hugs
  • Essence - 83 pretty cool life
  • Essence - 161 ciao oliviero


Polishes:
  • Essence - 150 upper green side
  • Essence - 159 the green & the grunge
  • Essence - 139 walk on the wild side
  • Essence - 160 deep sea, baby
  • Lucky 13 Lacquer - Elemental Ward

I also used Bundle Monster's BM-S327 stamping plate.



Base: 2 coats of Breath of the Wildlings. I used the black Kaleidoscope stamping polish (that I forgot to photograph) to stamp with. Using all the other polishes I coloured the image while it was still on the stamper. I added a coat of Elemental Ward and when it was still a bit tacky I stamped the coloured image on. Added more Elemental Ward to seal it all in.


I just love the contrast of the pink blooms...


Bonus image: the cinderella hand!


I absolutely adored this mani and I wore it for an entire week....

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
