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!

I’m returning just in time for a Digital Dozen week! Missing a couple of Digital Dozen themes was by far the hardest part of my absence from the blog, I always enjoy coming up with nail art for these themes and seeing the amazing nail art from the rest of the group! This week’s theme is Christmas in July. I always enjoy Christmassy nail art, so I’m loving the theme!

For my first look of the week, I decided to go with a very Christmassy stamping image, but some not-quite traditional Christmas colours – so it’s Christmas, but not over-the-top. I went with a pink and blue colour scheme, although the pink I chose is almost red.

To get this look, I started with a base of Fair Maiden Lady Slipper. I then stamped using Born Pretty stamping polish #7 and plate Celebration BPX-L008.
