Hard to believe another month has gone by! It's Digit-al Dozen week again and this time we are taking on Geek/Nerd topics. I wanted to start with something that has fascinated me since the moment I learned about it. The Golden Ratio. "The golden ratio (symbol is the Greek letter "phi" shown at left) is a special number approximately equal to 1.618. It appears many times in geometry, art, architecture and other areas." Cited from mathisfun.com where if you are curious, you can read a great (and relatively simple explanation of this amazing numerical relationship. What I find most compelling about it, is how you can find this ratio throughout art and nature. It was widely believed that the nautilus shell chambers grew in a golden spiral ratio. So I decided to attempt a nautilus shell. I should have given myself more time to practice because it didn't turn out as nicely as I would have hoped. But hopefully you get the idea.
Plus, I'm excited to show to you a few of my freshly arrived China Glaze Hologram 2013 Collection. I used quite a bunch for this mani, and will create another post to show you the rest!

I think these are super pretty shades...but I'm not blown away by the holo effect. What do you think? Also, I did make sure to shake each bottle before application. I'm looking forward to seeing everyone else's photos of this collection.
