Hello lovelies! It's Digit-al Dozen time again! This month's theme is fandom and I am so excited! I have a ton of ideas going through my head that I hope I can pull off, and I can't wait to see what everyone else comes up with as well. I'm sick and I'm having a day where I want to pull my hair out, but at least I love my nails right now!
I belong to quite a few "fandoms," as I'm sure many of you who have been with me awhile know.I have already created manis to honor many of them, but I suspect some of them will make another appearance this week. ;) So, let's get to today's mani!
Today I am paying homage to a show that I love but have not created a mani for before, Sherlock. Sherlock is such a great show. It's witty and it makes you think, but have fun at the same time. Not to mention it stars Benedict Cumberbatch. And, let's not forget this scene. *fans self*
If you are a fan of the show, you will recognize my manicure as Sherlock's wallpaper and the smiley face he drew with spray paint. If you're not a fan, why not?? You have plenty of time to catch up since we will be waiting for possibly 52 years for the next season. (Slight exaggeration and the only thing I don't like about Sherlock.)
To create this manicure I started off with a base of Barry M Gelly in Chai. I love this grey and the formula is amazing! Once that was dry I used an image from Born Pretty Store plate BP-L007 and Sinful Colors Black on Black. It's no secret that I'm not very good at stamping but my mom loves it when I stamp on her nails so I have been trying to improve for her. I think I am getting better, still a long way to go though! Once that was dry I added the smiley face using acrylic paint. I topped it all with KBShimmer Clearly on Top, followed by Cult Nails Wax That to get a waxy finish.
This mani is a little on the simple side for me, but I really like how it turned out. I know the wallpaper pattern isn't exactly the same, but it was close enough for me. I'm still wearing this and really enjoying it!

Thanks for reading and happy polishing!
