The Digital Dozen does Mani Recreations: Blue Bow Tie

Hope you all are doing well today! It’s hump day, we’re halfway through this weeks Digital Dozen. If you’re a new reader I’ll tell you a little about it. The Digital Dozen is a group of highly skilled nail bloggers and nail artists. During the second full week of each month we each create 5 manicures designed around one central theme. The theme for September is Mani Recreations, which is my shorthand for “Recreate your first blog posts.” This was a fun theme. I always loved this mani, let’s take a look…

I originally created this mani in November of 2014. Less than 6 months after starting my blog. I made a few changes in my recreation, mostly out of pure curiosity. Check it out and let me know what you think at the end of this post.

Items I used for this:

  • Painted Polish Drunk on Holo
  • Sally Hansen Crayola Insta-Dri Cerulean
  • UberChic 6-01
  • Bow tie charm

Fun fact: The Bow Tie charm is the exact same one I used 4 years ago, it still had the blue polish on the back! 🙂

Using the larger scattered glitters in Drunk on Holo gave it a very different look than the original silver holo did. I think I prefer the original, I still like how it turned out though. Which do you prefer?

Hope you liked todays post. I will be back tomorrow with more mani recreations. Be sure to check out the link up below to see what the other ladies did for today.

Until next time, stay polished!

  • I really like the second one! Recreating manis are so much fun plus you always get to see how far you’ve come with a certain technique and what not.

  • The stamping looks so cool!

  • Kristi Vasquez

    I love the stamping over the glittery base! So pretty! This gives me Cinderella vibes. 🙂

  • I love the colours in both designs. But I agree with you that the contrast of the swirls on the holo makes them stand out in the original.

  • Tracey

    This is just fabulous! First off my favourite colour and that bow charm is so cute x

  • I love this design! So see why you wanted to redo! Plus that blue is amazing!

  • Ehmkay Nails

    It’s the same look yet so much crisper. So pretty.

  • Ohh, these are beautiful!! I love that you used glitter for the silver this time around!
