Review and Nail Art – BPS Free Christmas Celebration Box

This post contains affiliate links.

Hi everyone!

I have two really gorgeous manicures to share with you today. I love both of these so much that I almost split them up into separate posts, but I want to show you different things that can be done with a fantastic stamping plate.

A few months ago, Born Pretty Store did a promotion to celebrate their birthday where anyone who shared their post would be sent one of three free celebration packets. Of course, I picked the nail stamping one. Painted Fingertips | Born Pretty Store free Christmas celebration box (more…)

Water Marble Wednesday: Polish ‘M Water Marble

Hi everyone!

As promised, I’ve got another installment of Water Marble Wednesday to share with you today. I’ve used three of the polishes from the Polish ‘M Christmas collection, some of which I showed you earlier this week, to create a bright and fun marble.

Polish ‘M Christmas Collection – Part 1

I bought these.

Hi everyone!

February might seem like an odd time to share a Christmas collection with you, but I have two very good reasons. First of all, I only decided to get most of the polishes from this collection recently; and secondly, the collection is retiring, so you need to go grab what you’d like ASAP!

The Polish ‘M Christmas Collection consists of 10 polishes, each featuring a jelly base packed with coordinating micro glitter and holo glitter. Since the collection is so large, I have divided it into two parts, and today I will be showing you the five ‘warm’ polishes from the collection.

When this collection was first released, I picked up two of the shades. Recently, it was reduced to half price since it is retiring, so I grabbed another 5. Once I got them, I absolutely loved them; add to that the revelation that they could water marble, and I went back and got the last 3. This is the first time I have ever bought a full indie collection – although of course, getting most of them on the half-price special certainly helped! As I am writing this post, the 5 polishes I’m sharing with you are still available and still half price. Most of the rest of the collection has already sold out, so if you like these, you should go scoop them up! Painted Fingertips | Swatch - Polish 'M Little Drummer Boy (more…)

The Digital Dozen Does Black Day 5: Holo Roses

Hi everyone!

Can you believe we’re already at the end of Digital Dozen week? This week has just flown by! I’m especially glad it’s Friday though – I didn’t have a particularly tough week, but for some reason I’m really tired out and I need a weekend!

For the final day of the Digital Dozen does black week, I’ve included the least colour of any day – just a little silver holo – over the black base. Let’s take a look! Painted Fingertips | Holo Roses for the Digital Dozen Does Black (more…)

The Digital Dozen Does Black: Pink Crisscross

Hi everyone!

Can you believe it’s already day 4 of the Digital Dozen Does Black? This week is going by so fast! If you missed my previous posts this week, check out day 1, day 2, and my personal favourite day 3. Last night I finished off my final look for tomorrow’s DD does black post. I was showing it off to my husband when he commented that I’d done an awful lot of black manicures lately! Duh – it’s Digital Dozen black week! I had even asked him for some ideas for the last look the night before, so it’s not like he didn’t know about it 🙂

Today I decided to bring in some texture with the black and of course, you know by now that my favourite thing to use together with texture is tape. That meant I ended up creating a fun pink and black crisscross look. Painted Fingertips | Pink crisscross for the Digital Dozen Does Black (more…)

The Digital Dozen Does Black: Water Marble

Hi everyone!

It’s day 3 of the Digital Dozen Does Black! So far I’ve shared two stamped looks exploiting the contrast between glossy and matte – one with pink accents, and the other with gold. Today I’m finally steering away from the stamping. I enjoyed the milky coffee water marble I did last week so much that I’ve decided to bring Water Marble Wednesday back for a while! I won’t be committing to posting a marble every single Wednesday, but I do have a couple lined up and ideas for a few more 🙂 I’m starting it off today with a black and clear water marble over a neon gradient.

The Digital Dozen Does Black: Matte with Gold Accents

Hi everyone!

It’s day 2 of the Digital Dozen Does Black. Yesterday, I showed you some matte on glossy black stamping with a pink accent. Today I’ve done something with a pretty similar idea behind it, even if the look itself is quite different. I’ve again combined matte and glossy finishes and added a splash of colour.

Hi everyone!

It’s Digital Dozen week! This week’s theme is black. This seemed like the perfect theme for me to combine matte and glossy finishes – with a splash of colour, of course! I think this will be a fun theme, although I’m pretty sure I’ll be including at least a little colour each day. Painted Fingertips | Black with matte stamping and pink accents (more…)

Drip Marble in Red, Green and Gold

Hi everyone!

I have some really fun nail art to share with you today – a drip marble! If you’re thinking that red, green and gold sounds like a pretty Christmassy colour scheme, you’re absolutely right. I actually did these a couple of months ago with the intention of posting them in the week before Christmas as some holiday nail art. As it turned out, I didn’t get a chance to actually schedule the post before I left for my vacation, so this poor nail art has been sitting unposted since then! I decided to share it with you now because you can wear red, green and gold any time you want. These pretty colours don’t have to be exclusive to December! Besides, I liked this nail art and I hope you’ll enjoy it too 🙂Painted Fingertips | Drip marble in red, green and gold (more…)
