The Digital Dozen Does Get to Know Me: Gizmo-cat Water Marble!

Hi everyone!

It’s time for another installment of ‘get to know me’! If you were extra observant, you may have noticed that I didn’t post yesterday. As it happens, I’m having a particularly busy week in my ‘day job’ and I haven’t been able to finish all 5 looks for this week’s theme. I’ll probably be skipping another day as well. Let’s just call it a part of getting to know me!

I’ve dedicated today’s nail art to my beloved cat, Gizmo. Gizmo came into our lives a little over 2 years ago when my husband found him crying and hiding under my car, scared and hungry. He was still a baby, only about 2 and a half months old. Luckily, all he needed was some food and some love. He purred his way into our hearts and has stayed there ever since 🙂

The Digital Dozen Does Get to Know Me – Geodes

Hi everyone!

It’s time for another Digital Dozen week! This time the theme is ‘get to know me’. At first I was a bit stuck on this theme – after all, you already know what my hobby is. I do nail art! What more can I share? After a little thinking, though, I realised that there are plenty of aspects to my life and likes that can translate well to nail art. I decided to start off with something that is somewhat related to my career. Painted Fingertips | Geodes nail art (more…)

Water Marble Wednesday: Color Club Halo Hues!

Hi everyone!

It’s Water Marble Wednesday! I’ve actually been having an incredibly busy week, so I wouldn’t have had time to do a marble for today. Fortunately, I did a whole bunch a week or so ago and I could use one of those, so we still get to enjoy water marble goodness!

You may recall how enthusiastic I was about the stamping abilities of the Color Club Halo Hues a while ago. Well, it turns out they can marble beautifully too! What can’t they do? I’ll have to get my hands on some more of them 🙂Painted Fingertips | Holo water marble with the Color Club Halo Hues (more…)

Hi everyone!

Do you remember the gorgeous pinky purple polish from Fair Maiden I showed you last week? If not – go check it out! It’s beautiful! Today I am sharing the other Fair Maiden I purchased at the same time. For now I just have these two, but considering how lovely they both are, I’ll have to keep a close eye on the brand!

Swatch: Sweet & Sour Lacquer April POTM

The polish swatched in this post was provided for my honest review.

Hi everyone!

Are you a fan of Sweet & Sour Lacquer? They’re a fairly new-to-me brand, this is only the second time anything from them is appearing on the blog. The first was this bright swirly neon water marble than I did using their Catchphrases collection. Today, I have a swatch of their April POTM (polish of the month) to share with you.

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 marble (more…)

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

This post contains affiliate links.

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…)
