The Digit-al Dozen does 'Nail Heroes': Sveta Sanders

There are so many amazing nail artists out there that I could have done a Nail Hero post one.  I'm talking the big guns of nail art blogging that have been around for many years, like Chalkboard Nails, The Nailasaurus, Chit Chat Nails, Oh My Gosh Polish, Piggy Luv, Lacquerstyle, Manicurator to mention just a few off the top of my head. 

But the hero I've chosen today is one that constantly makes me say WOW, and why didn't I think of that, or WOW, and how the hell did she do that!  I'm talking about the incomparable Sveta Sanders or @sveta_sanders.

One of the nail designs that Sveta never ceases to amaze me with is her drag marbles - they are flawless and she is always coming up with new designs.  About five months ago she created a beige coloured flower drag marble and I've keep it stored in my memory bank until now.  In fact I actually did try to recreate this design when I had the drag marble prompt in the 52 week challenge.  That time I tried painting it directly on my nail like Sveta did in her tutorial, but it was a total fail.  This time around I did the drag marbling on my UberChic mat and then applied the designs like decals.  

Better than my first attempt, but still a far, far cry from Sveta's design.  Sveta I bow to you, you supreme goddess nail art hero!

My video on these will be added just a soon as I've edited it.


  1. You know what's incredible about Sveta in person? She is very modest about her achievements and she always replies to compliments smth like "oh please stop, you're making me blush, I'm nothing that special" :)
    I think you did a great manicure, resembles both Sveta's mani and a yummy cup of capuccino :)

  2. Thank you so much! You are no less inspiring example for me!
