The Digit-al Dozen Does Birthday's - 'Unicorn Wood'

Thursday, 27 October 2016


It's birthday time with The Digit-al Dozen!  Earlier this month Amber (Nails Like Lace) celebrated her birthday and picked this 'unicorn wood' image for us to interpret into nail art.  



I'm not going to lie, I had a little trouble coming up with what exactly to do for this one for a little while there. I will also go ahead and say that this mani is definitely better in person than in pictures.  My camera washed the colours out completely.  Polishes used are Pretty Serious Cosmetics Fluffykins, Bunny Foo-Foo, Doodle Bug, Cutie Patootie, Little Duckling (all over OPI Alpine Snow) and China Glaze Fairy Dust.

This is was the base looked like before I added the holo glitter.  I'm really not sure which version I like best.

Which version of this mani do you prefer?  Glitter or no glitter?

  1. I love this interpretation & the glitter topcoat adds something so pretty to it. Gorgeous, although I'm not sure how you resisted stamping on that :)

    1. Thanks Vicky. I'm actually surprised at myself that I didn't stamp over it. Normally I do. Clearly wasn't in a stamping mood when I did these lol

    1. Do you know I think I prefer it without the glitter too. I'm not 100% sold on CG Fairy Dust. It definitely is prettier in person than pics but still.

    1. I was actually really lucky to get those pics. It was storming and pouring with rain but the sun popped out for a minute (literally!) and I ran out to get those pics. My neighbours must have thought I was nuts lol
