Game of Thrones Nail Art - Week 2 - Daenerys Targaryen

Are you ready for episode two! I sure am. Its on in just over 30 mins. 

What did you think of the first episode?  I enjoyed it, but felt like everything went so fast.  So many reunions that we had been waiting so long to see and then, BAM, they all happened so quickly that I was a little disappointed.  I didn't get the feels from any of those reunions like I did when Sansa saw Jon at Castle black three years ago.  

Today's nail art features Daenerys and all things Targaryen. I wonder if she will find out today that Jon is her Nephew and the true heir.  I can't image she will take it too well when she does.

Enjoy the show.

Digital Dozen does Albums - Madonna the Immaculate Collection

Today is my last design for the Albums week, and it was actually the last one that I came up with. I'm super happy with how this turned out mainly because of how pretty and wearable the design was.  Often some of the nail art I put together for the Digital Dozen is a bit out there, but was nice.  Someone at work even said it reminded her of Wedgwood.

The design was inspired by Madonna's The Immaculate Collection album from 1990. Wow, what an album, so many amazing songs on it and it really brings me back to my youth. I was in high school when this album came out and it was the height of pop culture.

Digital Dozen does Albums - Kiss

I've made it to my fourth look this week, and it's been a popular one with the Digital Dozen girls. I guess there are just some albums that make nail art a bit easier, and the amazing makeup of Kiss is absolutely one of those.

I went for a more abstract look, rather than trying to create the full face looks on each nail.

Only one more look left this week, and I was really happy with how it turned out, mainly because it was really wearable. So stay tuned for that one tomorrow.

Digital Dozen does Albums - Andy Warhol

OMG - what have I done here. Yes, I have bananas on my nails. They look very odd, except when I put the inspiration album covers next to them and then they almost look ok.

Problem is, I can't walk around all day with the inspo photo, so suffice to say, these nails didn't sty on my fingers for that long

The album covers in question are for an album by The Velvet Underground and Nico, designed by Andy Warhol. It's very well known apparently.

Digital Dozen does Albums - FM-84 Atlas

Today's album cover nail design is courtesy of FM-84 Atlas album.  Who the hell is FM-84? I dunno, but this album cover sure is pretty and made for some pretty cool nail art.

I've got to say, I'm not a big fan of this Albums theme this month. I've just finished my 5th mani, and it was a big struggle!

Can I also say, thin freehand horizontal lines are bloody hard!

Digital Dozen does Albums - Nicki Minaj The Pink Print

Have you every created a nail art design and put heaps of effort into it only to look at the final product and realise you could have done it in a much faster and simpler way and still go exactly the same look. That is exactly what happened with this look.

I bet if you look a this, you see a pink base with some white finger print designs on it.  Well I just wish I had done this design in such a simple way.  No, instead I did this design by creating a radial gradient using pink and white. Then I did the finger print design using the pink polish over the white center part of the radial gradient.  You'd never guess right.

I was inspired by an album cover from Nicki Minaj called The Pink Print.  I originally tried to create a similar look as on the front of her album using loose powders, but that was an epic fail!

Game of Thrones Nail Art - Week 1 - Jon Snow

It's nearly time for another Digital Dozen week of nail art, but before I get there, I need to start the first of my Game of Thrones nail art designs ready for Episode 1 of Season 8.

I have plans for new GoT nail art each week, ready for each new episode.  Episode 1 has already aired, it was at 11am here in Australia, but because I was at work I have to wait until the kids are in bed so I can catch up.  

This week features Jon Snow, the Stark sigil and a few of the well known sayings for house Stark .  I forgot the photograph my thumb, which had the Game of Throne title image with a pretty cool vertical gradient.  I topped it with matte top coat, which I think was just perfect for this design.

Do you watch Game of Thrones? Are you excited to see it all wrapped up? Did you do GoT nail art too, if so, let me know about it!

Slinky Malinki Cat Flaps for Digital Dozen does books

For my last book inspired mani, I've gone all out with some freehand painted nail art. I chose to paint the cover image from Slinky Malinki Cat Flaps.

I absolutely love the Slinky Malinki books.  For a family with several cats, this collection of children's books from Lynley Dodd has so many relateable stories that they became a bedtime favourite book with my kids.  

Also drawing my love to these books is the newest little addition to our household, who is about 6-7 weeks old. We have named him Inky, and he is a tiny little black kitty who we are sure will grow up and be very similar in appearance to Mr Slinky Malinki.
Slinky Malinki was blacker than black, a stalking and lurking adventurous cat.  He had bright yellow eyes and a warbling wail, and  a kink at the end of his very long tail.
