The Digit-al Dozen Does Thankfulness: Day 3 Coffee!

Nothing to Disclose

Yes, those who know me either post coffee memes or bacon memes on my Facebook Wall. A lot. And I love it! So today I've done a manicure showing one of the "little things" for which I'm very thankful. In the grand scheme of things, it is a very small thing, granted. But let me miss it fasting for medical tests or something and you'd think it was the apocalypse! Yes, I'm addicted.

Coffee Nail Art


I get poked fun at quite a bit because I drink the "plain ol' cuppa joe" kind of coffee. Black. I usually grind my own beans but I only like brewed or "drip" coffee. I can't stand anything that sludges out of a Keurig or any of the thick, foamy stuff beautified by talented baristas.

When I'm across the pond, I find it very difficult to find drinkable coffee. You have to ask for "brew" or "drip" coffee and be strong enough to withstand the disapproving, raised eyebrow, looks you get. You know the you just shoved a pungent block of limburger cheese under their noses? Their thoughts of "stupid Americans!" are practically written on their furrowed foreheads. And I care not. #sorrynotsorry

While I generally don't like anything "coffee flavored" like chocolate or candy, I have nothing against a Venti Mocha with whole milk and whipped cream now and then. As dessert. But do NOT mess with my real coffee!

For this slightly more abstract mani I used a base of Zoya Farah with a mixture of Zoya Farah, Emilia and Nyssa for the beans and acrylic paint for the coffee cup. Completed the look with a coat of Zoya Matte Velvet top coat.

Be sure and check out the other great Thankfulness manis from the rest of the Digit-al Dozen in the links below!

  1. this is so great - something about the swirl from the coffee cup really reminds me of your logo! It just seems so you :)

  2. This is a thing I'm thankful too. And thank God I'm Italian so, you can imagine, I'm addicted to any kind of Espresso on earth. And Cappuccino. But I'm also thankful for tea, and that's due to the little British soul inside of me :D
    Your nail art has made me wanna have a coffe right now :D right on purpose!

  3. This design is awesome! I really love the Doctor Who mug!!

  4. I can related; to coffee; not black, as I don't function without my daily double double!
