Ornate Brown Stamping

Painted Fingertips | Ornate brown stamping - Supermoon Fight Your Demons and Emily de Molly Long Road Trips

Hi everyone!

I have an ornate turquoise and brown stamped look to share with you today that I really loved. A couple of months ago, I picked up my very first Emily de Molly polish during March’s Polish Pickup. I was not disappointed! I love turquoise shades and this one was gorgeous with its tiny coppery flakes. I decided to play off those copper flakes with some brown stamping: (more…)

Supermoon Lacquer | The Chosen Collection

Painted Fingertips | Swatch - Supermoon Lacquer Fight Your Demons

Hi everyone!

I have a first on here on Painted fingertips today – I am sharing redone swatches of Supermoon’s The Chosen Collection, although I have already shared swatches of these before, back in 2016. The reason for this is that Supermoon Lacquer is having a huge 2-year anniversary celebration right now. As part of the celebration, all polishes from previous collections are available, including some retired shades. There are also several exclusives that are available during the sale, and if you join the Facebook fan group there are some discount codes available. Mardi, the maker behind Supermoon Lacquer, asked if I could reswatch these for her since I’ve upgraded my camera in the meantime, and I could do a better job or capturing their beauty.

Supermoon Lacquer is known for their great formulas and opaque polishes, and these are no exception. All swatches are 2 coats with top coat, and all have a fantastic formula. (more…)

Soap Bubbles | The Digital Dozen Does White

Painted Fingertips | Soap bubble nail art - The Digital Dozen does White

Hi everyone!

It’s day 3 of the Digital Dozen does white, and as you can see, I’ve done something really different for today’s look. As I was listing off things that are white to brainstorm nail art ideas for this week, one of the things I noted down was soap bubbles. At first, I wanted to paint individual bubbles, similar to the water drops I did in this look. However, I soon realised that these are more rainbow than white. I felt sure there must be a way to get a foaming soap bubble look, and some searching led me to this tutorial on Brijit’s Digits. (more…)

Hi everyone!

It’s day 2 of The Digital Dozen does white – and I have my least-white look of the week to share! At least, it’s probably my least white look; I haven’t finished the last one yet so we’ll see. Yesterday, I shared some cute fluffy sheep nail art. Today, I’ve once again gone with white subject matter in the form of white doves – although the nail art itself contains only a little of the colour white. I also wound up doing animals for the second time this week, which was fun. (more…)

Sheep Nails | The Digital Dozen Does White

Painted Fingertips | Sheep Nail Art - The Digital Dozen does White

Hi everyone!

It’s Digital Dozen week! This week’s theme is white. At first I didn’t like this theme at all – I was thinking that I’d have to do predominantly white, bridal-looking manicures all week. There’s nothing inherently wrong with that, but those types of looks just aren’t my usual style. Even for my own wedding, I wore turquoise nail polish! That made me dread the idea of an all-white week. That was until I had the idea to do nail art based on things that are white, rather than just making white the dominant colour. This meant that I could use plenty of colours, and I had fun coming up with things that are white! (more…)

Water Marble Wednesday | Music City Beauty Neons

Painted Fingertips | Music City Beauty Neon water marble

Hi everyone!

It’s Water Marble Wednesday! Today I have a vibrant neon water marble to share with you. I recently swatched the Music City Beauty Risqué collection, consisting of 6 neon cremes. I mentioned in that post that the collection could water marble, and here’s the proof! I’ve actually already done a second water marble with some of the polishes from this collection, so be on the lookout for when I post that one. (more…)

Flakie Gemstone Stamping Decals

Painted Fingertips | Flakie gemstone nail art

Hi everyone!

I have some glittering, shimmering nail art to share with you today. I decided to use some flakie-packed polishes to create some shiny gemstone stamping decals. I don’t get enough use out of these flakie polishes, it was fun to use them all together in this look. (more…)

Silver Flowers

Painted Fingertips | Silver flower nail stamping

Hi everyone!

The week before last was the Digital Dozen’s ‘In My Garden’ week and I only managed to get 4 out of 5 nail art looks posted. I had really hoped to get the fifth one up in time, but just didn’t quite make it! I actually had these nails done and photographed, but wasn’t able to get the photos edited and the post ready in time to share it with you – so I am sharing it now instead. I did have a fun reason for not getting it done – my husband and I took a short mini-holiday to visit NYC for a few days! It was a great time and I got to see all the touristy sights. (more…)
