Swatch // Delush Polish Cheers Comes the Sun

One of my favourite parts of getting into indie polishes is getting to experience all the amazingly creative colour combos that various brands have been turning out. This polish for example? You would NEVER see something like this from a mainstream brand, and I LOVE it!

Check out more swatches and info about this gorgeous indie lovely below the cut!

Swatch + First Impressions // Avon Nailwear Pro+ Nail Enamel

I feel like Avon is one of those companies that I remember hearing about when I was a kid in the way that you would hear about Tupperwear - things that moms would buy and sell to each other and that came in fun little magazines that you could look through to do 'imaginary shopping'. Or was I the only one who did that? Haha.

Anyway, picture my surprise when I started seeing other bloggers sharing beauty products from Avon over the past year or so! I didn't even know Avon was still a thing! So when my mom got me three of their polish shades at Christmas I was like "Hells yes, I'm excited to give these a try!" And what do you know - I was SUPER impressed with them!

Nail Art // The Digit-al Dozen Does Black: Black Kitty Cat Nails

Meow! Are you a cat person or a dog person? I love a good puppy but I am 100% a cat person! I have two lovable assholes that I live with named Essa and Bean, so when I sat down to do my fifth and final Digit-al Dozen manicure I knew I wanted to go with a black cat theme. (Neither of them are black cats, but that's beside the point haha.)

Take a look at my finished mani below!

Nail Art // The Digit-al Dozen Does Black: The One Where I Glued Pom Poms to My Nails

I mean, the title says it all for this one. Haha. My inspiration dried up a bit and I said to myself: "Why the hell not! Let's glue some pom poms on!"

And you know what? I LOVE it! I remember when this was kind of a thing people were doing for kicks and I thought it was so dumb, but I actually would really love this look if it wasn't so damn impractical! Who would have guessed. :)

Nail Art // The Digit-al Dozen Does Black: Rainbow Holo Stamping Over Black

Ah, stamping with holo polish. Something I don't do nearly enough, and because I don't do it often I didn't know better when I tried to stamp a rainbow gradient of colours across my nails! Because guess what? The colours don't show up! :/

Yes, I tried to make this a holo-rainbowy-stamping-gorgeousness mani but it didn't quite work out how I expected. At ALL. Bummer! It's still pretty, but not pretty in the way I had planned..

Nail Art // The Digit-al Dozen Does Black: Dark and Smoky French Tips

Still feeling a bit blah but I gotta say these nails really gave me a little energy boost. They turned out so well! I'm going to have a hot bath to relax a bit and then sit down to try to turn out the rest of the manis for this week. Wish me luck!
