Digital Dozen does Black - Iridescent glitter beetles

Hello again.  I have to say that for a prompt I wasn't really keen on this month (black) I've been really digging each of my mani's so far.  I am looking forward to wearing some lighter and brighter shades, but just because I'm wearing black doesn't mean I can't make it blingy.

Today I played around with some other glitters I had and rubbed them into a black base like I did back on this post.

The glitters were all different sizes, and all different colours.  The first shifts from red to green, the second from orange to green, the third from gold to teal and the the fours from aqua to purple.  I was pretty amazed by all the colours that I ended up with on my nails.

I used the Messy Mansion beetle plate to stamp the wing designs, but I do find the images on that plate way too big for my nails, so you don't really get the actual beetle print to fit on your nail. I also really struggled with getting the vertical line straight down my nail, even using a clear stamper. Can you imagine what these would have looked like if I still only had access to regular stampers!!


  1. Every day, you have amazed me! Well done! Loving those glitters!

  2. I don't know how you do it but it's amazing again :D

  3. Wow, that glitter is so cool!! The colors on your pinky are my favorite!

  4. The one on your ring finger looks really awesome!

  5. I'm always hesitant to play with glitters, but these are so pretty
