Hi everyone!

It’s been a while since I’ve posted – over 3 months, in fact. Did you miss me? This is by far the longest I’ve ever been away from Painted Fingertips. It was an unintended hiatus as I got pretty sick and just didn’t have it in me to be doing nail art, never mind everything else that goes into a blog post. The good news is that I’m feeling better, so I’m back! I may stick with a slower posting schedule for now; if I’m honest, I didn’t miss blogging as much as I thought I would. It also didn’t seem as though many people really noticed I was gone, and while I enjoy doing nail art for myself, my blog is about sharing it with you. With that in mind, I hope that you will enjoy my upcoming posts!

Painted Fingertips | The Mirror Crack'd - Northern Star April PPU

Some items in this post were provided for my honest review.

Hi everyone!

It’s almost time for another Polish Pickup! If you’re reading this, you’re probably already familiar with Polish Pickup, but if not, it’s a monthly pop-up shop where exclusive polishes are available for just one weekend from a variety of indie brands, all inspired by the same theme. Each brand participating has just one exclusive polish available, so it’s a great way to try polishes from a variety of brands and there are always some breathtaking creations available. April’s theme is famous works of art and today I have Northern Star Polish’s creation to share with you.

Painted Fingertips | The Invisible Man - The Digital Dozen does Books

Hi everyone!

I’m a little late, but here’s my fifth look for the Digital Dozen’s books week. So far this week, I’ve shared looks inspired by Garth Nix’s Old Kingdom books, colouring books, a saxophone method book, and George R. R. Martin’s A Game of Thrones. For my final look of the week, I decided to take inspiration from the book I’m currently reading: H.G Wells’ The Invisible Man.

It’s day 3 of the Digital Dozen does books! As usual, Digital Dozen week is flying by. So far this week, I’ve shared some Old Kingdom nail art, and a look inspired by a saxophone music book. Today’s look wasn’t inspired by a single specific book, but rather by colouring books in general.

The Old Kingdom | The Digital Dozen does Books

Painted Fingertips | Charter magic nail art - the Digital Dozen does books

Hi everyone!

It’s time for another Digital Dozen week! This week’s theme is books. There are so many wonderful options to choose from, although sometimes it can be hard to figure out what nail art to do to relate back to the book. For my first choice for the week, there was actually a pretty obvious nail art option. I decided to do some nail art inspired by Garth Nix’s Old Kingdom series – Sabriel, Lirael, Abhorsen, and the more recent additions Clariel and Goldenhand. These books were near the top of my list for this week, simply because the original trilogy were my favourite books as a teenager, and I still love them.

Hi everyone!

I have a cheerful, colourful gradient to share with you today! Things have been really busy for me lately with work and other hobbies, so I’ve had a hard time posting as much as usual. Fortunately, I found this fun gradient amongst my photos that I somehow never managed to post! It’s about time I shared it with you.
