The Digit-al Dozen Does: Spooky Days - Monster

Press Sample

Today's design was inspired by a new fuzzy glitter from Sally Hansen.  The minute I saw it I knew I had to create a cute Halloween monster!

I used a selection of the new Sally Hansen Halloween lacquers to create my monster.  First up some swatches!
Night Fright - two coats, great black.

Pumpkin Queen - two coats, fantastic shade of orange, but a tad streaky.

Witch-ful Thinking - two coats of fun! The perfect base for my monster!

I used Night Fright to add some stripes and accents on my monster's face.  I'm not really feeling my monster's face.  I should have done his eyes differently.  Oh well, his fuzzy coat is pretty awesome!

Sally Hansen also released this fantastic glitter, Dressed to Thrill.  Application was amazing with brilliant shine!  Best part, square glitter!

My monster isn't that spooky but he is kind of cute!

The Digit-al Dozen Does: Spooky Days - Halloween Skittle

Today's design features some fantastic Halloween images and my favorite color combo, black and white.  Of course, seeing that it is Halloween, I couldn't  keep it strictly black and white...a pop of orange was necessary!

I started with a base of Coconut.

I used Espresso to stamp the majority of my images  and Mango for some accents on my pinkie and thumb.  The images are from Messy Mansion plates 11 and 22, Cheeky Jumbo Plate 06 and BMH07.

I added some Mango and Espresso dots to tie the manicure together.  I always love how adding some dots can take a design from great to brilliant!


As much as I loved yesterday's Burton Halloween, this design is my favorite of the week.  The black and white with pops of orange is perfection to me!

The Digit-al Dozen Does: Spooky Days - A Burton Halloween (With a Surprise)

It's a Burton Halloween....Tim Burton!  Today's design makes me so very happy!  I didn't realize the amazing-ness that was coming my way when I ordered the new MoYou London Gothic plates! After I opened plate 01 I had my design!

The base of my design is two coats of Your So Vain-Illa.  (Second time this week!)

Next, I dry brushed my favorite orange, Chop-Sticking To My Story.  You can actually see the true color in these photos!  I love this burnt orange!

My second dry brush is Miss You-Niverse.  These two shades are not only fantastic Halloween colors, they are perfect together!

All of my Burton creatures came from MoYou Gothic Plate 01 and I used Black Swift to apply them

Do you see the surprise???  I didn't notice this image until I took a closer look at the plate.  One of the scariest Doctor Who monsters...a Weeping Angel!!  This image made my design!

The Digit-al Dozen Does: Spooky Days - Haunted House Wallpaper

That's right!! You read it correctly! The Digit-al Dozen is back with an extra event and I am ecstatic about this because I LOVE Halloween! I would have done some Halloween designs no matter what but now I have an excuse to do an entire week!

My first design is inspired by the wallpaper in a Haunted House.  One of those vintage-y, Disney-esque, haunted houses.

My base is two coats of You're So Vain-Illa.

I used a make-up sponge and Vant To Bite My Neck? to add a purple gradient.  This is my all-time favorite gradient! These two colors look amazing together!

I added my wallpaper design using Black Swift and MoYou London Fashionista Plate 07.

I know this isn't all that spooky but can't you see this on the walls of a Haunted House?!?!?  I LOVE it!
