Digital Dozen - Get to know me week - Day 5 - must finish!

Hey there people, I'm stretching out my last post for the week by a day simply because I didn't have any nail art to post.  This whole week I've been flying by the seat of my pants to get my manis done, literary painting them at night, photographing them and then blogging about them.  It was too much last night, and after a day of doing intense physio on my foot I decided I didn't feel like painting my nails again.

So that left me with having to do something today. But I actually had the urge to clean the house instead (which never really hits me) so I figured I'd better clean rather than do my nails. Bu now here I am a day late with still nothing about 'me' on my nails. So instead I'm using this mani because it was the only other one that I had completed already.

So how am I going to tie this design into the 'me' topic, here's how.  You see at work I'm considered a 'doer'. That is, I get shit done. I don't stuff around and I do what is needed to finish a job. And I really hate failing to meet deadlines or achieve results and if that means making a few reasonable shortcuts then so be it.  

Which is why I'm posting this mani, it's not really showing anything about me except that I don't like to leave things unfinished, and today I'm taking a reasonable shortcut to do so! 

So you still learnt something about me, and you get to see this really pretty mani I did.

For this mani, I started with a white base and then a quad colour gradient of pink, yellow, purple and blue.  I then applied a layer to top coat and rubbed some of the scattered holo flake across my nails. To finish the design I outlined each nail in black and then did feathered brush strokes up each side. They remind me of opals.


  1. I love me a shiny rainbow and the fan brushed black framing it just made it pop. :D

  2. Wow, these are so gorgeous! I can only imagine what they'd look like in the sun!

  3. Fantastic mani! I don't think I have seen a mani quite like this one, it is stunning. Thank you for sharing, and for the gorgeous photos. <3

  4. WOW! I've read how you did this 2 times and I"m still at a loss at how you created this magic!
