Digit-al Dozen: Get To Know Honey Honey

Greetings and Nailutations,

It is Day 3 of Get To Know Me for the Digit-al Dozen and I figured I would post about something that I collect, love and respect.  BEES!!!  It all started when I was a child - my grandfather nick named me "Honey Honey" and from there, I seemed to be attracted to bees.  I got my first sting because as a toddler, I wanted to pet the furry insects.  OOPS!  (Lesson learned.)  My attraction continue through grade school and when I reached high school I had to do a "senior project" which entailed a paper, poster and presentation.  I decided to jump into beekeeping.  It was one of the coolest experiences I have ever done working with a local beekeeper in Washington state.  I even continued the obsession into my wedding and it was bee themed.


Now let's get to the mani!

Products used:
Drip Drop Nail Paint - Summer Prototype #01, Yoga Pants
Winstonia - W113, WW202 plates
Easy Peel - Liquid Latex
Clear Jelly Stamper - stamper (press sample)
Simply Spoiled - nail art pen
SuperChic Lacquer - Marvel Liquid Macro Top Coat

I started with a bright yellow prototype from Drip Drop and stamped using Yoga Pants and some adorable bee images on 2 Winstonia plates.  I added stripes on one nail and topped it all with a shiny top coat.  I love how this turned out and need to do more bee related manis.





I'll also share my wedding cake topper before it was placed on top of the cake - bee themed of course!  :)  Are you  bee lover?  They are truly a precious resource that do so much (without pollination we would have nothing).


Happy buzzing,
Kristi aka BeginNails

  1. Yeah! More bee manis! I've thought about bee keeping before, but I can only be responsible for life that can walk up to me and demand to be fed. It's so cool that you are doing it. 🐝

  2. Beautiful mani and that cake topper is just too freaking cute! I had a local indie who made a fabulous hand bar lotion and cuticle balm from beeswax and I loved them. They no longer carry the items, unfortunately.

  4. Such a cute mistake to try and pet them!
    Bees are great but I try to keep a safe distance from them! :)
