The Digit-al Dozen January Birthday Mani

Hi ladies! Can you believe January is almost over? We’re still enjoying a slight warm up here, we’re averaging about 50ish degrees. Don’t get me wrong I’m still counting the days till Spring, but in the meantime I can’t really complain. But the end of January means it’s time for another birthday mani for the Digital Dozen. The birthdays this month were Courtney and Brethil, and they chose this lovely green and white image. It reminds me of cactus. Let’s take a look…

Now to be completely honest I’m not really happy with how this turned out, but I decided to post it anyway on the chance that I’m being too critical of myself. Afterall, we are our own worst critics.

Items used:

  • LynB Designs B Smooth Basecoat
  • KBShimmer Eyes White Open
  • Painted Polish Stamped in Olive
  • Painted Polish Stamped in Greenery
  • Cici & Sisi Plate #13
  • Clear Jelly Stamper
  • Dotting Tool
  • Glam Polish Matte Topcoat

I went with 2 shades of green for the stamping as I wanted to recreate the mottled look in the inspirational picture. I then just added some white dots over the stamping, and finished it off with a matte top coat.

So there you have it. I hope you all like it okay. Maybe it will grow on me. 🙂

Wishing Courtney and Brethil a very Happy Birthday!

  • I agree with Michelle! You are nuts, lol! These are fantastic!!!! I ooooh’d over them at first sight!

  • Yes – we definitely are our own worst critic! Same for me with this one too, BTW. 😉 But – from my perspective, I really think you did a cool thing here. It picks up on the theme, but also looks like a fancy water marble!
