The Digital Dozen does Holo - Pastels on nude


Hi all!

Short intro, running out of time. Pairing a nude holo with pastel stamping. Actually wore this all week because I'm not feeling well and couldn't be bothered to change my nails.


Polishes:
  • ILNP - Bottle Service
  • MoYou London - Scandi Sun
  • Kaleidoscope - Stamping 81 Bisque
  • Kaleidoscope - Stamping 84 Manatee
  • Lucky 13 Lacquer - Elemental Ward

I also used MoYou London's Mother Nature 15 and 16.




Base: 2 coats of Bottle Service. I stamped leaves with Scandi Sun and plate 16 and added flowers with Bisque and Manatee using plate 15. Topped with Elemental Ward.



And I remembered to take a photo in direct light!


What do you think of this pairing? Let me know!

Love, Brethil

The Digital Dozen does Holo - Physalis


Hi all!

Running late as usual, I blame the nasty cold I caught, it's been making me feel out of sorts for days now. Today's star is the Physalis (and the Creative Shop image plates I used obviously).


Polishes:

  • Lucky 13 Lacquer - Stone of the Soul
  • Kaleidoscope - Stamping 01 Black

I forgot to take a direct light photo, you have to trust me Stone of the Soul is holo.



Love, Brethil

Hi all!

Polishes:
  • Cirque - Cerrillos
  • Sinful Colors - 101 Snow Me White
  • Lucky 13 Lacquer - Elemental Ward

I also used Hēhē 006.

Isn't this holo base a gorgeous colour?

Love, Brethil

Born Pretty Store review - Flower Yarn & Tropical Punch stamping plates

*Press sample*

Hi all!

I've got a tropical look for you today, good to forget about the rain!


Polishes:
  • Born Pretty - BP-U04 Moonlit (item 42851)
  • MoYou - Glacier
  • MoYou - Teenage Blush
  • MoYou - Scandi Sun
  • Kaleidoscope - Stamping 01 Black
  • Lucky 13 Lacquer - Elemental Ward

I also used two stamping plates from Born Pretty Store, kindly sent to review: Flower Yarn S002 (item 43672) and Tropical Punch L002 (item 44329).




Base: Either  2 coats of Moonlit or Glacier. I stamped the scales from the Flower Yarn plate on top. I created 2 stamping decals of one of the flamingo images. I stamped those in black and then added the colouring using the other polishes. After adding the decals to my nails I sealed everything with Elemental Ward.



Moonlit just makes it so tropical, don't you agree?

The Digital Dozen does Look Up - Loki


Hi all!

This last mani of the Look Up week is inspired by a poster hanging above one of my computer screens. I've got Loki looking down at me, great view to have each day. All the geometric patterns combined with Loki's colours ended up with this mani today.


Polishes:
  • Essence - 161 ciao oliviero
  • Essence - 139 walk on the wild side
  • Essence - 160 deep sea, baby
  • Catrice - LE Matchpoint - C01 Team Lucky Mustards
  • Lucky 13 Lacquer - Elemental Ward

I also used stamping plate ND104.



Base: 1 coat of ciao oliviero. I dabbed some of the polishes onto a stamper and smooshed it on top of my nails. I stamped using deep sea, baby and topped it with Elemental Ward.



I do love the combination of these colours and stamping marbles are easy and fun as well. I also owe you how my desk area and everything that dangles above looks like, so here you go:



Can you spot all my inspiration items?

Love, Brethil

  • Kaleidoscope - Stamping 85 Brown
  • Lucky 13 Lacquer - Elemental Ward

I also used stamping plate Creative Shop 22.



Base: 2 coats of Thousands of Love. I used Twilight and Khaki Perry to brush on stripes with the Mohra Ombre Brush. I stamped the hops using Brown. Sealed with Elemental Ward.
