A sweet finish to Digital Dozen Childhood theme.

Friday, April 17, 2015

It's the final day of the Childhood Theme for the Digit-al Dozen. I wrapped it up with some simple gumball machine nail art.

Who doesn't remember staring at the gumball machines every time we walked by one? I was taught never to ask, but it didn't stop me from staring a hole through it... Usually my dad got the hint and would ask me if I wanted one. The answer was always "yes, please!"

I used a white base color and various neon shades for the gumballs. The red for the top and bottom is "Hoosier Daddy" from Girly Bits.

Such a fun and simple mani. But one that brings back so many memories. I always hoped for a blue gumball - I loved how they turned my mouth neon blue.

Now let's look at some of the other Childhood memories from the amazing ladies of the Digital Dozen.


  1. Wow, I've seen people spam nail blogs that have gone inactive, but I've never seen spam (the last comment includes a link to a website for Avon products) on an active nail blog.

    Anyway...I wanted to leave a comment about how your mani made me smile...both your artwork and your story. :) Thank you! And how in the world did your parents manage to teach you not to ask for things? I see kids pointing at items and telling their parents, "I neeeeeed that!!" :)

    1. Thank you! I deleted the last comment. I try to go through and take care of those.

      This mani was so much fun to create. I am glad it made you smile. I know I enjoyed it when I created it. Thanks so much for leaving a comment. I am not sure how my parents taught me that. But it worked! - whatever it was.

  2. I love this mani! What a great idea! And so appropriate that the name of the polish is Hoosier Daddy given your story. :)

  3. So cute!! Omg I always wanted a gumball from the machine! I am sure it drove my parents crazy, but they would always give me one of those long plastic string of individually wrapped gumballs for Christmas.

  4. Ah, so cute! Your story is so relatable, haha. The struggle was real
