#5minutenailart: Nail Foils

Hi everyone!

It’s time for another quick 5 minute nail art look! If you aren’t familiar with this series, you can go check out my first #5minutenailart post for an explanation, but the basic idea is that I’ll start with a plain, single-colour manicure as a base, and then have just 5 minutes to turn it into nail art. Painted Fingertips | Nail foil #5minutenailart

Review: Born Pretty Store Stamping Plate BPL-027

Hi everyone!

Today I have another review of a Born Pretty Store stamping plate, BP-L027, to share with you. As usual with my stamping plate reviews, I have two different stamped looks to share with you so make sure to check out both of them!

The lower row of images really caught my eye with this plate. The large square images are an unusual size and shape so on one hand, you can’t use the whole image on a single nail, but on the other hand, there are a few creative ways to use different portions of these images. The delicate designs of the upper row are also gorgeous – I’ll show you a look using two of those first.  (more…)

Geometric Double Stamping

Hi everyone!

Today I have some double stamping to share with you. I keep seeing amazing double-stamped nails, and it never quite seems to work out for me! I really like the colour combination I’ve used today though, and it certainly creates an interesting look. Painted Fingertips | Geometric double stamping

I started these off with a base of Sinful Colors Mint Apple. I then stamped using Born Pretty Store plate BP-L 003 first with my white Essence stamping polish, and then with Tip Top Gold MinePainted Fingertips | Geometric double stamping

I finished it off with a couple of crackle studs from the Born Pretty Store. The final effect looks kind of random, but fun! Painted Fingertips | Geometric double stamping

What do you think? Have you had success with double stamping?

#5minutenailart: Stars and Neptune

Hi everyone!

I’m not sure what happened, but it’s been a whole month since my last 5 minute nail art post! I’ve just had so many other things to share with you recently. If you’re not sure what this is about, check out my first 5 minute nail art post. It’s pretty self explanatory though – I just start with a plain, base colour manicure, then have a maximum of 5 minutes to turn it into nail art. Painted Fingertips | #5minutenailart: glow in the dark stars
