Digit-al Dozen: November Birthday Mani

Greetings and Nailutations,

This is the first time I've painted my nails in almost 3 weeks.  Thanksgiving weekend was a bit ruined for me as I spent a good chunk of Thanksgiving in the Emergency Room.  Paint + nausea + sweats = kidney stone!  I am lucky in that it passed in ~10 hours.  Lesson learned: DRINK MORE WATER!  :)

This post is very late due to the above mentioned activities.  For November a drip marble mani was the inspiration photo with colors of gold, purple, blue, red, pink for the birthday girls in the Digit-al Dozen (Marisa, Carmina and Serene).  I had to do a little research on how to do this mani and then practiced a few times as well.


Now let's get to the mani!




Since it's a drip marble - I figured I would use Drip Drop Nail Paint polishes!


Products used:
Drip Drop Nail Paint: Below Zero, Sleighin' It, Holiday Spirit and Halloween Prototype 014.
Dream Polish: Gem Glam Top Coat
Clear Jelly Stamper: Clean Up Brush




I love this technique and want to try this again!

Be sure to check out the other blogs/manis below from the fellow Digit-al Dozen members.

And Happy Be-lated Birthday to the November Digit-al Dozen members!

Happy Polishing,
Kristi aka BeginNails

    1. Yes - not a pleasant experience. Now I am drinking water like it's going out of style.
