The Digit-al Dozen: Fuzzy & Beaded Blue Texture Patchwork Nails


I've had a tiny box of flocking powder in my special nail art supply drawer for forever! I just could never think of a great, creative way to use it so it sat there, staring up at me whenever I needed rhinestones or stamping polishes. Just waiting in its wrapper, hoping for a day I would finally make use of its fluffy little particles. SO since it's The Digit-al Dozen time and our theme is 'texture' I figured now is the very best time to finally bring out the flocking powder! And then some :D

The Digit-al Dozen: Maybelline Color Show Polka Dots Dressed Up in Leather + Studs


Today I have a play on hard and soft, or edgy and fun, using the bright jelly-based shades of the Maybelline Color Show Polka Dots Collection! I was so incredibly happy to find these polishes on clearance at Target so I snapped them up as quickly as possible :) After doing skittles with them I realized they needed just a little bit of edge - check 'em out!

The Digit-al Dozen: Red Hot Sugar-Spun Gradient Nail Art

I love me a good gradient, and with the weather starting to warm up I thought this red-hot red-to-yellow gradient nails were a great way to celebrate! To keep in line with The Digit-al Dozen theme of 'texture' for this month I added a fun sugar-spun accent nail and some rhinestone accents. I've been enjoying doing texture-y nail art based on the difference in finishes found with different polishes (matte, glossy, texture glitter polishes, etc.) but today I'm sticking some stuff on my nails and showing you something more 3D! Check 'em out!!

The Digit-al Dozen does Texture: Molten Drip Nails inspired by SwitchEasy Melt™

 Gift 

Today I've finally tackled a nail art idea I've had since I got my new phone case. I've been obsessed with the SwitchEasy Melt case for forever and I was pleased as punch when my boyfriend surprised me with the metallic gold + hot pink combo for Valentine's Day (appropriate, right?!). So since the theme this week is texture I tried to mimic the molten look and play with matte vs. glossy. Check 'em out!
