The Digit-al Dozen Does Childhood - Day 5: Nail Polish

Happy weekend! We finally made it! I'm about an hour late getting this post up. but better late than never, right? To close out Digit-al Dozen Childhood Week I have something that impacted both my childhood and my adulthood (as well as yours probably!) - nail polish!

Continue reading after the jump!

I started falling in love with nail polish when I was very young. Then when I was about 9 or 10 I started painting my own nails often and also doing my mom's nails once per week. I can't imagine they looked very good at that age but my mom still wore them, bless her. What a confidence boost for a kid. I am now in my 30s and still doing my mom's nails once per week (sometimes twice!). I guess it was worth all those manis done by a kid for her to now get them done each week by someone who knows a thing or two about nails. ;)

For this mani I used Elevation Polish Weddell Sea as my base. The rest was done using acrylic paint and a detail brush. I topped it with Cult Nails Wax That after it was dry.

I hope you've enjoyed Childhood Week as much as I have! Make sure to check out the other awesome manis below!

Thanks for reading and happy polishing!



  1. I loved doing my nails as a child too - no wonder we still love it today!

  2. perefct - love the splats! Who didnt love playing with nail polish?

  3. The only polish I was allowed as a kid was a peel off one that lasted all of 30 seconds. It wasn't until I was a teen that I finally got to play around with the stuff.

  4. So cute! My mom lets me do her nails once in a blue moon and I love it too.
