Nail Art // The Digit-al Dozen Does Decades: Zig-a-zig Ha! Spice Girls Nails for the 90's!

by - Thursday, January 12, 2017

Alright, I shook myself off and decided to do something I could really get excited about for today's prompt! Thanks for the encouraging comments last time, the really helped me to sit down and think about what I wanted to do today, what would be FUN for me to do. And I decided to go with nails inspired by my favourite 90's girl band of all time!

You also get to see my rarely-visible thumb, which... I'm not actually super pleased about haha. I like the design I did on it, but my thumb is so ugly!! Ahhh! I hope you don't mind how short and rounded it is compared to the rest.

ANYWAY I know what you want (what you really really want) is to see my nails, so let's get to it!

That's right, I did Spice Girls nails! (And spoiler, if you scroll further down the post you will see I didn't just leave it at this, either!)

So let's take a minute to break down all of the polishes I used... It's a lot, are you ready? Okay, here we go!
  • Ginger Spice: Sinful Colors Snow Me White, My Indie Polish Puddle It Be, My Indie Polish Magmar
  • Sporty Spice: CND Vinylux Desert Poppy, CND Vinylux Honey Darlin', China Glaze Givers Theme
  • Baby Spice: L'Oreal Paris Butterfly Kisses, China Glaze Fairy Dust
  • Scary Spice: Ciaté London Pliés Please Me, Sinful Colors Black on Black, LynB Designs You Sit On a Throne of Lies
  • Posh Spice: Sinful Colors Black on Black, Sally Hansen Big Matte Top Coat

Phew! Lots of polishes! Let's take a closer look at some of my favourite nails!

Fun! None of the designs I chose were particularly difficult but I still quite like them. :) They definitely fit with the 'themes' of the girls!

AND THEN for more fun, I decided to do some freehand lettering because why not! I used black and white acrylic paints and then sealed it all with a matte top coat.

Can I just say that posing with all five fingers is SUPER HARD? I took so many pictures to try to show you my thumb, and it felt so awkward! But I persevered! :)

This is my second-to-last look for our 'Decades' theme and while I've had fun I'm going to say I won't be sad to see it go haha. I already have ideas for next month, but this theme just escapes me for the most part. Ah well.

See you tomorrow for my final 'Decades' look!

Thanks for visiting! xx
