DIGIT-AL DOZEN WEEK: Vintage Cutouts

Nothing to Disclose

Hello lovelies.

Oh my goodness. Before we dive in, let me just apologize for my absence. Since I returned from San Francisco, my work situation (by which I mean lack of work situation) has been preoccupying me in the extreme. I'm anxious all of the time, and am sleeping like a sloth because of it. I have little creative energy, and therefore little of myself to apply to nail art.

But it is Digit-al Dozen week this week, and if nothing else, I'm going to try to complete the week as part of my commitment to my fellow ladies, and to you, my lovelies. So, let's do this! This week's theme is vintage.


I decided to start off simple, to avoid committing myself to something overwhelming. I was struck by inspiration while visiting Nory's look for today and saw the leftmost dress here. Cutout necklines! Super cute and vintage-ish.


I used Nail Vinyls for the moons, and actually did these twice, because the first colour I used (a bronze) didn't have enough contrast with my nail bed.


I still think I should have gone darker, for even more contrast, but there was no way I was going to do these a third time! These are also my R for my (abandoned-too-long) Follow the Devil ABC Challenge: reveals!


Polishes used:
OPI - Jade is the New Black
Duri - Rejuvacote (base coat)
Nail Vinyls in half-moon
medium detail brush

I have zero idea what I'll be doing for the rest of the week, and I can't promise I'll get them all done on time -- I'm waiting to hear back from an employer in particular with whom I had a third interview last Thursday, and I'm on pins and needles for some resolution. All my emotional energy is going there. But! I will get the week done however I can, bit by bit. :)

And do you like the new nail shape?!

xo,

J.
