Digit-al Dozen DOES New & Improved DECALS and 40 Great Nail Art Ideas does Things That Fly

Hi Goddesses

Wow, that was a catchy post title eh?  Lol.  Today I am doubling up, with my final post of the DD's New & Improved week, as well as nail art for Things That Fly, this week's 40 Great Nail Art Ideas challenge.

Today the 2 are united by .... decals.   Ever since I saw the Things That Fly prompt, I've wanted to use this super cute bumblebee design from UberChic.  I'm also obsessed with the notion that logically, there is no way a bumblebee SHOULD be able to fly, and yet it can.  Oh, and I love their lovely dumpling shape!

This mani is also a bit more evolved than my usual nail art, bringing it back to the Improved element.   I have 3 nails stamped with flowers, and 2 bumblebee nails.

For the garden, I did a base coat of Literary Lacquers Phizzwizard, a great pale green holo, stamped it with these super cute daisies from UberChic 5-01 and dotted their centres with OPI Hot & Spicy, Planks a Lot and Jessica Ocean Bloom.   I liked those nails a lot.

My bumblebees are from the same UberChic plate, and I coloured my decals in with OPI The It Color.  I got some smudginess from the bees' faces, but other than that, did better with my decals than before - mainly, I think, because I cut them to size before applying them to my nails.  (Over Barry M Huckleberry).

That's it for this week - I hope you've enjoyed what you've seen from us, and maybe it's inspired you to try something new or give something another go.  Have a great weekend.
