Digital Dozen - Inspired by each other - Copycat Claws

Hello there. Are you surprised that I keep coming back? Again it's been about two weeks since I was last here, but lucky for you its a Digital Dozen week, which means five days of nail art in a row.

This week the theme is Inspired by each other, and I couldn't be happier, because it means I can turn of my own brain and rely on the creative prowess of my fellow Digital Dozen girls to get me through the week.

To start me off, I started browsing through all the DD girls blogs and Instagram accounts to start taking notes of which manis I wanted to create. Well let me just say, Day-am girls, you are all some fine nail artists.  I ended up having so many choices I had to work out a way to narrow the list down.  So because I'm pretty much a lazy arse with nail art these days, I decided to make my decisions on nail art that would be the quickest and easiest to recreate.

Enter mani number one!  I took inspiration from Serene from Copycat Claws for this one.  She posted her design in September last year as part of a review of nail stencils. Now I knew I didn't have those stencils, but I knew I had a stamping plate from Messy Mansion (MM27) with flames on it. I have used it before for this Girl on Fire mani. 

I was all set.  I did my white base, then the awesome yellow to green gradient and was feeling super stoked about what this would look like. But, do you think I can find my bloody plate? I have searched high and low for it and carefully sorted through all my plates, but nope... it has grown legs and walked off somewhere.

So then, at 10.30 at night I had to free hand the stupid flames on (and on both hands cause I had work the next day).

So now I present my hand painted green flames inspired by Copycat Claws.
