The Digit-al Dozen does Rainforest/Nail Crazies Unite does Delicate Print

Hey there!  Today is the 3-for-1 post that I mentioned yesterday.  I love trying to challenge myself to combine themes for the various groups I'm in and for today's mani I've combined three different prompts.  We have the final Digit-al Dozen Rainforest mani along with the Nail Crazies Unite's Delicate Print theme and the Nail Challenge Collaborative May theme of Green.  Hopefully everyone else thinks I've managed to combine the three at least half decently!

The Digit-al Dozen does Rainforest - Panda Nails

Hey there!  So when I was thinking up rainforest nail ideas for this month's Digit-al Dozen theme I thought that there must be rainforests all over the world that we don't think about as such.  Which somehow made me think of pandas which do indeed live in rainforests - rainforests with lots of bamboo to help them get all rolly polly and adorable.  And, since there's so much green in this mani it's also my first Nail Challenge Collaborative mani for this month since the May theme is just Green (which works very well with the rainforest theme).

The Digit-al Dozen does Rainforest - Lizard Nails

Press  Sample

Hey there!  Today's Digit-al Dozen Rainforest-themed mani is easily my favourite one this week.  And I did these soooooo long ago and have just been waiting to share them for this theme.  I've been reviewing Whats Up Nails products lately and included in my first package of items were these adorable lizard stencils.  Having just watched Planet Earth, I knew that there were some darn cute lizards hanging out in the rainforest and and figured they could go along great with this month's theme.  And I used a couple of Magic Shifting Powders to make them into magical lizards!

The Digit-al Dozen does Rainforest - Tropical Flowers

Hey there!  For the second day of The Digit-al Dozen's Rainforest week, I have a mani that ended up looking like a tacky Hawaiian shirt...and I loved it.  I don't think I'd ever be gutsy enough to actually wear a bold shirt like that but I have no problems wearing something this loud on my nails!

The Digit-al Dozen does Rainforest - Tropical Birds

Hey there!  This week is a brand new Digit-al Dozen week - always the most fun week of the month.  For May we have a Rainforest theme which was great timing because when I was ready to tackle these manis I had just watched Planet Earth II.  There wasn't a rainforest episode but there was a jungle episode which is pretty much the same thing, right?  When I did these I was also in the middle of swatching the KBShimmer Nauti by Nature collection courtesy of Color4Nails (previously reviewed here) and I thought they paired up perfectly with the theme so I used all the holographics from the collection for this design.

26 Great Nail Art Ideas - Yellow and Bold

Hey there!  This week's 26 Great Nail Art Ideas theme is "yellow plus one bold color".  My first thought with that was "isn't yellow a bold enough color itself?".  Maybe not all yellows are super bold but the one I picked sure is.  I don't usually like yellow nails but it gave me an excuse to use one of my newest KBShimmer cremes, Chick Me Out, and pair it with an old fave and I ended up really liking this fun design.

UberChic Beauty Collection 17 Review

Press  Sample

Hey there!  Last week I showed you a few things I did with UberChic Beauty's 16th collection of stamping plates and today I have Collection 17.  I've been a fan of UberChic from the beginning.  This collection certainly doesn't do anything to dissuade me.  It keeps up with Brittany's style and creativity which I love.  I wore these looks last week and really enjoyed them.  Some of them were simple but still lovely - gotta love something that's quick but still looks good, amirite or what?!
