The Digit-al Dozen Does Fairy Tales--Mermaid!!

Hi Everyone!!! Happy Monday!  Today starts the 2015 year for The Digit-al Dozen AND we have some exciting news!!! We have several new members!  It's totally exciting and I can't wait to see all the diverse nail art we are going to get out of this "new and improved" group!!!

We are starting off the year with Fairy Tales.  OMG it is not as easy as it sounds!  Most people hear fairy tales and their minds immediately go to Disney movies which the majority are not fairy tales at all!  I really had to struggle to come up with some ideas and one of mine I can't do at all as I am minus a frog stamping image!  I mentioned this to the group and Sheila from Pointless Cafe wanted me just to draw one LOL!  I died laughing.  Easy for Sheila to say as she can freaking draw anything but I think we all know when it comes to me and free hand skills it ain't pretty!

So today I started it off right with one of my all time favorite nail designs EVAH--the beautiful mermaid tail!
I got to use my new multi-chrome flakie, Prilea, from Darling Diva with this beauty and boy do I love it!

Prilea shifts from  burgundy to green to gold and some flashes of blue even
I also put OPI Ski Teal We Drop, My Vampire Is Buff and Zoya Wednesday and Haven into the mix as well!
And I stamped Mundo de Unas Aqua over Wednesday for the other nails--just lovely!!!  Stamping is MoYou Sailor
Really loving this one and glad to be able to start this week out with a mermaid tail!

Because we have new members with us this year I really hope everyone takes the time to head over and check out all the amazing art work we have for this month's Fairy Tales theme!
