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.










Digital Dozen Remembers Childhood - Day Three Neon Water Marble

Wednesday, April 15, 2015


Today is Day Three of the Digital Dozen Childhood theme. I was raised an only child and most days I had to entertain myself. I spent a lot of time with my hula hoops. I remember how bright and neon they were. I hooped for hours everyday. I actually got quite good at it. I was able to hoop with several at a time and could make them raise up to my neck and then my arm, and then even down to my ankles and back up.


Now that I think of it, it was excellent exercise. Maybe I should pick it up again? I said "maybe," so don't hold me to that.

But I do remember how the colors of the hoops mingled together. So to pay tribute to those days I created a water marble with the upcoming Girl Bits Hoop! There It Is collection.

These polishes marbled amazingly well. Let's take a look!

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









Hoop! There it is! Collection (partial) from Girly Bits swatches, review


I have some of the upcoming Girly Bits Hoop! There it is! Collection to share with you today. These shades are shockingly bright! They are perfect for the spring and summer season. 

These are swatched over white. I thought about swatching them solo. But I really wanted you to see just how bright they really are. Not only are they super bright, but they water marble amazingly well. They did dry to a slight matte finish, just as neons do. But add a top coat and you have a mani that has enough gloss and color to power a town.

Let's take a look.

Don't Paddle Break A Nail is a neon magenta creme polish. This polish is a super bright shade that will look superb on the beach or on the town. This is two coats with a top coat. I had no issues with application.

Digital Dozen Day Two - Go Fly A Kite

Tuesday, April 14, 2015


It's day two of the Digital Dozen. I am keeping it simple this week. I am not sure who is stealing my time... but I would love to have it back. Just kidding, it's just been a busy time here at Set in Lacquer.

When I was a child I did a lot of things by myself. I was raised as an only child. One of my favorite things to do was go in the field surrounding my house and fly a kite. So today I have some kite inspired nail art.

I used I've Got High Hoops from the Girly Bits Neon Brights Collection for the base color. (Watch for swatches tomorrow.) I also used You're My Hooper Hero and Thump Your Melons from the same collection for the colors in the kite. The black for the string and outline were created using acrylic paint.

Digital Dozen Day One Tic Tac Toe Inspired Nail Art

Monday, April 13, 2015


It's Digit-al Dozen time again. The theme for May is "Childhood." For the first post I created some simple nail art inspired by the age-old game - Tic Tac Toe.

I used Colors by llarowe "Broncos Baby!" for the base color. Then I used OPI Alpine Snow for the grid, Xs and Os. I finished it off with a top coat of Girly Bits Polish Matte'rs for a matte finish. It almost gives it a chalkboard look.

This is a really simple mani, but I love the way it turned out.

I Like Big Buns is a warm chocolate brown. It is packed full of brown and wine shimmer and has violet and blue sparks. I had no issues with application. I used three thin coats of polish and a top coat. There are lots of pictures below. I tried to narrow it down, but each photo seems to show a different characteristic of the polish.

Water lily nail art with multi-chrome base

Thursday, August 7, 2014

I know, I know... It's another floral nail art look. While I don't lean toward floral prints in my day-to-day life, I do love floral themed nail art. And when you have water lilies over a multichrome polish? Well, it's just mesmerizing.

For this water lily nail art, I used Girly Bits Wave the Sails multi-chrome polish for a base color. I love this Indie polish. Her colors and finishes never cease to amaze me. Girly Bits is made in Canada and if you haven't tried it, I am not sure what you are waiting for...

I added a few splotches (yes, it's a technical term) of Girly Bits Dash Away All for some extra dimension under the water lilies. It is an amazing linear holographic shade of taupe. It's great to wear on its own, or as an accent.

Then I used acrylic paint to create the water lilies. I use acrylic paint a lot in my nail art. It's easy to use, can be easily thinned, it's inexpensive and is readily available. And it can be easily "erased" if you find you make a mistake. 

I love the soft and delicate look of the water lilies, and yet the base color makes it dramatic and eye catching.
