#5minutenailart: Stars and Neptune

Painted Fingertips | #5minutenailart: glow in the dark stars

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

Today I took the easy way out with stickers. My base is the beautiful Sinful Colors Neptune. I love this polish and really, it’s doing all the hard work here. For my quick art, I just added a couple of star-shaped stickers. Painted Fingertips | #5minutenailart: glow in the dark stars

I’ve had these stickers, opened, for ages, and I guess I should have used them sooner because I felt like they’d become a little hard and wouldn’t lie as flat on my nails as I would have liked. Still pretty, though, and the best part is that these glow in the dark! I didn’t get a good glow picture so you’ll just have to believe me – it’s fun looking at glowy nails in the dark!Painted Fingertips | #5minutenailart: glow in the dark stars

This one was more like 5 second nail art, never mind 5 minutes. Sometimes, though, that’s enough! What do you think?

    Sometimes simple is beautiful. Neptune is lovely.

      Thank you! It really is, it’s one of my favourite Sinful Colors polishes.

    It is called Neptune? Ok, I need it.

      You really do. I think it might have been an LE from a release a few years ago, though. I’m honestly not sure, I bought it when I was just getting into polish (good choice, past me!)

    I think 5 minute nail art tips are great especially when you want a new mani, but don’t have a lot of time. Great idea.

      Thanks! I hope you’ll try a few of your own 🙂

    The first picture makes them look more like shaped studs than stickers, love the overall effect. nail stickers are so great for jazzing up a mani

      Exactly, quick and easy!

  • Color Me So Crazy

    These are so super cute! I never think about throwing on a decal for a little jazz and I have a ton of them

      I also tend to forget about mine, then discover them again at the back of the cupboard….

    Ooooo Neptune is lovely. I haven’t seen this one before.

    I keep loving Neptune! Those stickers are really pretty, and even more knowing they glow in the dark!

      Neptune really is a beauty!

    So cute!! Shooting stars in the night sky. I had Neptune in my eBay cart awhile back and didn’t get it, but now I think I should!

      You totally should! One of my favourite Sinfuls.

  • Ann

    Adorable! What funny is I’ve never seen Neptune before

      It’s an older one from them I believe!
