Digit-al Dozen: 5th "Bee-Day" Celebration

Greetings and Nailutations,

It is a Digit-al Dozen week and we were challenged with the prompt "5th Birthday."  Yes, that is right - the Digit-al Dozen is turning 5 this month.  The prompt was very challenging and I tried my best to tackle manis with themes of birthday and 5.

Let's get to the details!

Products used:
Leesha's Lacquer - Tequila Sunrise (Polish Pickup Pack)
Ever After Polish - Black Magic (press sample)
Polish 'M - Lemonade (press sample)
Glisten and Glow - Top Coat and Base Coat (press sample)
Ellagee Polish - Lickity Split Latex Mani Mask (press sample)
Winstonia - W113 Plate
What's Up Nails - Creative Shop Stamper
Clear Jelly Stamper - Big Bling Stamper (press sample)
UberChic - 5-01 Plate

I started with Tequila Sunrise, which I was a little bummed about when I put it on.  Why?  Because it is/was supposed to be a thermal.  Lesson learned - Kristi don't purchase thermals in the heat of summer.  I stamped using Black Magic and the Creative Shop Stamper using W113 plate (it has finer lines and likes squishy marshmallow stampers better).  As I let that dry, I stamped bees on my Clear Jelly Stamper and colored it in with Lemonade and a generic white.  I topped my nails with Yellow Stopper and let it dry to tackiness and stamped my color bees on!  Everything is topped with Glisten and Glow Top Coat.

For those that know me, know that I love bees, so this is my Bee-Day Celebration mani and wouldn't you know it...I have 5 bees on it too!  :)

Happy Polishing,
Kristi aka BeginNails
