The Digit-al Dozen Does Fairytales, Day Four: The Seven Ravens by Brothers Grimm

Hi everyone! This post is horribly late I know. My work schedule the last three weeks has been the worst. I'm not going to apologize, I just want to let you know posting is going to be sporadic for awhile, but I'm not disappearing. ;)

I was able to complete one final fairytales-themed mani before my work got overwhelming. I really love how this turned out, and it may be one of my favourites from this theme.

The Digit-al Dozen Does Fairy Tales, Day Three: Rapunzel by Brothers Grimm

Hi everyone! Tonight's nail art almost didn't happen. And while it didn't turn out as expected, I'm quite happy to just be posting this. For Day Three of Digit-al Dozen week, I took on the story of Rapunzel - the author is unknown, but it was compiled and published by Brothers Grimm.

The Digit-al Dozen Does Fairy Tales, Day Two: The Star Money by Brothers Grimm

Hi everyone! How are you enjoying the Digit-al Dozen members' fairy tale-inspired designs? I don't know about you, but I find it interesting to see what the other Digit-al Dozen members have come up with, and what stories inspired them. For day two, I have another new-to-me fairy tale - The Star Money by Brothers Grimm.

The Digit-al Dozen Does Fairy Tales, Day One: The Angel by Hans Christian Andersen

Hi everyone! I've been a bit absent due to my very, very hectic work schedule, but I'm making an effort to contribute to this week's Digit-al Dozen theme. We're taking on fairy tales, and I already know this week is going to be a challenge!! I'm trying to do a mix of well known and lesser known fairy tales, so for this first one I turned to The Angel by Hans Christian Andersen as my inspiration.

Lynnderella Attitude Adjust-Mint, Swatches and Nail Art

Hi everyone! I was inspired by Peachy Polish's Lynnderella Monday series to pull out some of my own Lynnderella polishes. I don't show these polishes often, but they are some of my favourite in my collection. Every time I look at them, I want to mix up some glitter. To challenge myself I thought I'd do some simple nail art along with the swatches. I find glitters can be hard to incorporate into nail art.  Most of the time I end up doing accent nails with varying degrees of success. So we'll see how you feel about today's look. ;)

My Top 10 Nail Art Posts of 2014

Hi everyone! Happy New Year! This year has really been a struggle for me in terms of blogging. In between my almost two month hiatus to finish my dissertation, and my busy schedule these last 2-3 months to build my indie brand, I didn't post as much as I had hoped. Many of my blog goals from the beginning of the year were not achieved, which is why I won't be making blog goals for 2015. Despite that, looking back at this year's posts, I can see my nail art improving by leaps and bounds. I was also surprised by the variety and the risks I took to try new things, instead of sticking to what I felt I was good at.

I started with over two dozen designs that I felt were very strong. And I was able to narrow that down to only ten. So these are the designs that really stood out, designs where I felt I pushed my creative abilities. I hope you enjoy! Click on the titles to be taken to the original post.
