Digital Dozen does Paper - Day 1 - 3D unicorn

Thank you so much everyone for you comments on my last blog post about my gorgeous girl Nahla. Now that I've had some time to mourn, combined with the week before her passing, I've actually got myself together ready with a whole bunch of new manis to share.

This week is another Digital Dozen week where I will have new nail art every day on the theme of Paper.  Then this Saturday I'm heading up to Sydney to attend Aussie Indie Con.  Apart from holding water marbling demos and workshops, I will be meeting so many other Australian nail polish and nail art enthusiasts, including meeting fellow Aussie Digital Dozen participant Tracy from Olivia Jade nails, plus the creators of all the Aussie brands.  I'm very excited to attend the event and cant wait to see what is in our VIP bags.  I'll try to do some live Instagram posts from the event.

OK, now lets get into day one!  Today I teamed up with some twin nails with Amanda from Lady Maid Nails.  This hilarious idea was all Amanda's. I know she got the idea from someone else, but I can't actually remember.  

I fre handed the unicorn and the flowing bits of mane and tail.  The enormous horn is the paper element of this mani.  I rolled a small triangle of paper up around my water marbling tool and painted it with clear polish. When that was dry I applied a coat of gold polish.  I think the horn is probably a little big, cause it sure stuck out a long way, and of course you wouldn't actually wear this design anywhere, but cause it was made of paper it didn't actually hurt when it banged into anything.


  1. They are so cute! Plus that face is perfect! Have fun at the polish event! I bet that would be so fun to attend!

  2. That's a super cute idea :)

  3. This is too cute! And such a funny way of fulfilling the theme :-D
