The Digital Dozen Does Birthdays: Amber’s Baby Girl!

Hi everyone!

It’s time for another Digital Dozen Birthday post and this time we have something extra special up our collective sleeve! Rather than celebrating one of the group’s birthdays, we’re celebrating a brand new birthday. Amber of Nails like Lace had a baby girl! We decided to surprise her with celebratory baby-girl nails 🙂

Since it’s Wednesday, I decided to make mine a girly Water Marble Wednesday. Painted Fingertips | Pink and white water marbleI actually had a completely different idea for today’s nails originally, but it didn’t work out at all. I decided that was clearly a sign that I should stick with marbles on Wednesdays and decided to do a soft pink and white water marble. Painted Fingertips | Pink and white water marbleI started off with a base of Sinful Colors Snow Me White and then marbled with Snow Me White and Sinful Colors Pink Smart. These two marbled beautifully together and I was so glad that I was able to get this pattern right with them! I finished off the look with a rhinestone on each nail.

Water marbling definitely provides its own unique kind of nail-art joy 🙂Painted Fingertips | Pink and white water marbleI hope you’ve enjoyed this delicate marble – and congratulations again to Amber!

Silver Optical Illusion Stamping

Hi everyone!

I’m so glad it’s Spring! Even though it can still be chilly here and we’ve been having quite a few overcast days, I love that it’s starting to warm up enough to be outdoors again. I’ve always loved Summer, so I can’t wait for it to warm up even more!

Today I have some silver stamping to show you, reminiscent of an optical illusion. Painted Fingertips | Silver optical illusion stamping (more…)

Vapid Sweaters ‘N’ Denim with Stamping

Hi everyone!

Today I’m having some fun with a thermal polish! Thermals are always fun to wear, I find myself glancing down at my nails throughout the day to check what colour they are! I still only have a couple of thermals in my collection. For today’s nail art, I had some fun with the much raved-about Vapid Sweaters ‘N’ Denim. I had seen good things about this polish ever since it came out, but I just wasn’t sure it was for me. Eventually, I decided to just try it, and I’m so glad I did! I wound up loving it just as much as everyone else seems to. Painted Fingertips | Vapid Sweaters & Denim with stamping (more…)

Supermoon Lacquer: Now I’m Gonna Eat You, Fool!

Hi everyone!

How about a nice, palate-cleansing swatch after yesterday’s crazy water marble? Today I am going to share with you a polish from one of my favourite brands, Supermoon Lacquer. Ever since I made my first purchase from the relatively new brand, Supermoon has rocketed up to being one of my top brands. Every polish I’ve tried from them so far has been fantastic! Today’s is no exception, so let’s take a look at Now I’m Gonna Eat You, Fool!Painted Fingertips | Supermoon Lacquer - Now I'm Gonna Eat You, Fool! header (more…)

Water Marble Wednesday: Catchphrases Collection Neon Swirls

Hi everyone!

It’s Water Marble Wednesday! I didn’t do a water marble last week since I couldn’t think of a good way to include it in the Digital Dozen theme, but I’m back with something extra colourful and swirly today.

Hi everyone!

Today I’m sharing something from a brand which is appearing here on Painted Fingertips for the first time! Fair Maiden Polish is made here in Minnesota, and I’ve wanted to try them out ever since I moved here. I finally purchased 2 of their polishes, and I’m sharing the first one today, along with some nail art. Painted Fingertips | Swatch - Fair Maiden Purplexed header (more…)

The Digital Dozen Does Art: Elspeth McLean’s Lotus Family of Three

Hi everyone!

It’s Day 5 of The Digital Dozen Does Art! I made it – I’m posting later than usual, but it’s still Friday! I only found an artwork that I found inspiring and that I could figure out a good nail art composition for last night, so this one ended up a little more last-minute. I really loved this theme but I’m glad it’s over for now – as the saying goes, variety is the spice of life, and I’m now ready for some simple, quick nail art 🙂Painted Fingertips | The Digital Dozen Does Art - Elspeth McLean Lotus Family of Three (more…)

The Digital Dozen Does Art: Flamingo Falls

Hi everyone!

It’s day 4 of The Digital Dozen does art! Today I’m sharing what is probably my favourite look for the week, although I still need to do something for tomorrow. After I’d done the first couple of designs, I was struggling to think of ideas, so I decided to peruse DeviantArt for some new art inspiration. There, I came upon a beautiful painting called Flamingo Falls by user AnnMarieBone. She has done a lot of stunning art, it’s worth taking a look!

The Digital Dozen Does Art: Lichtenstein-style Pop Art

Hi everyone!

It’s day 3 of the Digital Dozen does art! I’ve really enjoyed this theme so far and I loved both of the nail art looks I’ve already shared with you. In case you missed them, I recreated Munch’s The Scream and a gorgeous vibrant tree artwork by Megan Duncanson.

Today I’ve moved away from freehand art for the first time this week (don’t worry, there’s more freehand coming later in the week!) to create a pop art look. Painted Fingertips | The Digital Dozen Does Art - lichtenstein-style pop art (more…)
