The Digit-al Dozen Does The Terrific Twos: Day 5 - A Pair of Eyes

Nothing to Disclose


Today is the last day of The Digit-al Dozen Terrific Twos, to celebrate the Digit-al Dozen's 2nd Anniversary and I'm going out with a whimper instead of a bang.

Once again, I wasn't happy with my original mani I did for this prompt. So I did another. Things That Come in Twos/Pairs. And well, EYES usually come in sets of twos.

Okay, yeah. They're a little creepy. But I just ran out of time and out of ideas for this one. The index and pinkie are sporting Pahlish Petropolis and I honestly can't remember what I used for the eyeball nails. I know I used Zoya Pandora for the tan shade and some variation of Zoya Blu, Rocky and Talllulah for the rest, along with black and white.

And in case you're curious about the one I scrapped for this, it's supposed to be a Friends Forever necklace - you know, the kind where one person wears half and the other person wears the other half...




The base is Christian Louboutin Daffodile and the rest is acrylic paint.

The Digit-al Dozen Does The Terrific Twos: Day 4 - China Pattern

Nothing to Disclose


Today, we are all doing china patterns! It's the non-traditional (modern) 2nd anniversary gift and it was so much fun picking a pattern for this!

I chose a design from French maker J. Seignolles in the Petrouchka Bleu pattern. Obviously it's not a literal copy, but I think the idea translates okay. I was pretty happy with this one.




I used Chanel Blue boy, Blue Rebel and Elevation Polish Mount Ventoux with a bit of Chanel Magic on the thumb for this one.

The Digit-al Dozen Does The Terrific Twos: Day 3 - Sapphire

Nothing to Disclose


Today's prompt - Sapphires - was a little more challenging for me. I just couldn't think outside the box at all. But it is my brother's birthstone and he would have been 60 on the 12th.

Sapphire Nail Art



So this is the one I ended up going with. Very simple. My favorite color, which is my own violet orchid franken on all but the accent nail. That's a base of Zoya Blu and the sapphire stone is done in Zoya Tallulah outlined with plain black. And my sapphire ring of course.

I did one other that's sort of a fail. Well not really a full-blown fail exactly, I just wasn't feeling it since I'd done one simpler for a challenge earlier this year. My nails are the same length as the other manis this week the the one above is showing shorter nails. LOL!  This one is star sapphires using a magnetic blue polish and a star magnet.




So take your pick!
