The Digital Dozen does Spring - Day 5: Cute Cacti

nothing to disclose 

You know what's awesome!? Two kittens high fiving on the backs of unicorns. But you know what else is awesome!? Today marks the last of Digital Dozen Spring week! I'm pretty proud to have actually gotten through the week. It's been hard for me lately to get through it all with how busy I've been.

My final look this week is one I've been longing to do for awhile now...I even had the inspiration image as my phone background for a few weeks now! So while I find this pattern adorable and perfect for this time of year, cacti have a special place in my heart. I grew up visiting my great grand-parents home in Borrego Springs, a small desert town at the southern tip of California.

The Digital Dozen does Spring - Day 4: Retro Floral St. Patrick's Day

nothing to disclose

Woah, can you guys believe I've been posting so much!? Me either! :D Pretty proud of myself for keeping up with Digital Dozen week so far. Day 4 of Spring week is also St Patrick's Day so I wanted to try and do something that incorporated both!

The Digital Dozen does Spring - Day 3: Lupine

nothing to disclose 

Day Three of Digital Dozen Spring week is here! Yay! And, that means it's also the middle of the week - double yay! It really is a super short post for today though as I'm quite exhausted and need to crawl into bed as soon as I hit publish on this baby!

The Digital Dozen does Spring - Day 2: Fawn Field

nothing to disclose 

Hey, everyone! Look at me, posting three days in a row! :D Thanks to Digital Dozen Spring week for giving me lots of inspiring things to dream up and paint!

It's getting late here in California so I'm going to keep this short and sweet...but today's Spring mani is inspired by a quintessential spring event that I would always look forward to growing up. We have gobs and gobs of deer near my parents house and while they're more like abnormally large rodents the majority of the year (ever wonder where the term Deer in Headlights comes from? Yeah I don't...they literally freeze and just STAND there for ages), in the spring time all the babies arrive!

    The curious fawn. I had one of these in my yard the other day:

The Digital Dozen does Spring - Day 1: Song Birds

nothing to disclose 

Hiya, all! Today marks the start of another Digital Dozen week and since Spring is just about at our doorstep, we're doing a whole week dedicated to one the season! I'm pretty much WAY excited about it :D

So, while I'm super excited for the theme this month I really don't know where this week will go nail art wise. I'd like to avoid doing flowers every single day, but it's tempting! I started today with a compromise - some floral instead of all floral ;)

Garden Party - Floral Nail Art

nothing to disclose 

Hey all! Short and sweet post today - I had a pretty major break on my ring finger nail and it bummed me out quite a bit. I had plans to swatch this weekend but that wasn't able to happen so I did the next logical thing and painted a flower garden on my nails :D That makes everything better, right?

Oh hey guys! Happy Friday! Hope you all had a great week! I know I've been busy and sick and busy again but I'm excited to share some much needed nail art with you today!
