The Digit-al Dozen inspires each other: Day 1

(Press samples and affiliate links ahead!)

Hello!



This month, The Digit-al Dozen decided to choose a mani each day made by another Digit-al Dozen member that inspires us, and recreate it in some way. Today I chose a manicure that inspired me to do as close a complete recreation as possible; as we move through the week, I'll narrow in on certain elements I want to recreate.


The second I saw this mani Courtney from Polished Lifting did, I knew I had to recreate it:




I don't have this exact polish or plate, and I had one with a very similar image on the way, but it didn't come in time...So I used the next best plate I had.


I started with a base of Zoya Darby, and then stamped using MoYou London Mandala 14. I stamped with Kaleidoscope St-01 Black, and colored in with Kaleidoscope St-04 and St-06 Mint. Here's how it came out:




What do you think, did I do hers justice? I think hers is a bit softer, but I do like how the mandala worked in place of the succulent plant. I think both are pretty nice. :)


I'll be back tomorrow with another 'inspired' manicure--in the meantime, check out the other ladies' manis, linked below!


Big hugs,
M. xoxo
