Buzzing Bees | The Digital Dozen does In My Garden

Painted Fingertips | Bee water marble and nail art - The Digital Dozen does in my garden

Hi everyone!

It’s day 3 of The Digital Dozen does In My Garden! I’ve done some flowers, and some avocados – but you don’t always get to choose what’s in your garden. Sometimes you might have some visitors enjoying the sweetsmelling haven in their own way. I almost posted a different look today and left this one for tomorrow, but then I remembered it’s Water Marble Wednesday! (more…)

Tropical Flowers | The Digital Dozen does In My Garden

Painted Fingertips | Tropical flower nail art - the Digital Dozen does In my Garden

Hi everyone!

It’s Digital Dozen week! You know what that means, lots of nail art from me and the other DD members all week! 🙂 This month’s theme is ‘in my garden’. I’ve interpreted it as things that might be in a garden in general, since I don’t have my own garden. I’ve had a lot of fun with this theme for the looks I’ve done so far and I’m looking forward to getting the last couple done and sharing them all with you! (more…)

Hi everyone!

Do you remember the gold-green Born Pretty Store aurora nail pigment I shared not long ago? I really liked the shift this pigment has, so I decided to do some nail art using it. This powder also has a really cool effect over different colours – right now I’m wearing it on my toes over a neon pink, and it looks really cool! Over black, the gold-green shift made me think of autumn leaves, so I decided to add some leafy stamping. (more…)

Cherry Blossoms | The Digital Dozen Does Inspired by Each Other

Painted Fingertips | Cherry Tree Gradient inspired by The Polished Koi

Hi everyone!

I’m back with a final very late addition to the Digital Dozen’s Inspired by Each Other theme. For today’s look, I was inspired by this pretty cherry blossom look by The Polished Koi. The blue gradient she did really drew me in, and the cherry blossoms finished me off! (more…)

Painted Fingertips | Robots in Love

Hi everyone!

I’m still playing catchup for The Digital Dozen’s inspired by each other theme – and getting even further behind. I’ve already done my fourth look for this theme, and I think I’m going to let number 5 go this month – I have some exciting swatches and more nail art to share with you next week! (more…)

Black & White Dotticure | The Digital Dozen Does Inspired by Each Other

Painted Fingertips | Black and white dots inspired by Druid Nails

Hi everyone!

I’m running a bit behind with this week’s Digital Dozen posts – I’m going to a conference next week and I’ve had a really busy few days preparing for it. The good news is I think I’m ready for the conference, so now I’m going to be playing catchup with some nail art posts for you. For my second ‘inspired by each other’ look, I was inspired by this black and white dotticure done by Druid Nails. Simple but so striking and pretty! (more…)

Abstract Floral | The Digital Dozen Does Inspired by Each Other

Painted Fingertips | Abstract Floral - Inspired by Polish Those Nails

Hi everyone!

It’s Digital Dozen week! This week’s theme is Inspired by Each Other. We were originally going to do something a bit different for the month of May, a rotation week where we’d each do a guest post on a different member’s blog each day of DD week, but sadly that didn’t work out, so inspired by each other it is. For my first look of the week, I’ve done an abstract floral inspired by this look by Marisa of Polish those Nails. (more…)

Peace Sign Stamping

Painted Fingertips | Peace sign stamping over BEGL The Ancient Power

Hi everyone!

When I posted about Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer The Ancient Power yesterday, I didn’t really feel like my pictures were doing this polish justice. Maybe it’s just me being overly critical after a really busy few weeks, but I wanted another chance to show you this beauty while it’s still available! I decided to add some quick stamping and show you how nicely The Ancient Power pairs with silver. (more…)

Dragon Scale Diamond Glitter

Hi everyone!

Have you realised by now that I like dragons? Your first hint was over 3 years ago when I posted freehand dragon nail art for the first time. After that, it was a while before I returned to my favourite mythical creature, but I eventually got back to it with some Game of Thrones inspired dragons. Since then, I’ve also done not one, but two dragon eye looks, and another freehand dragon.

Today, I’ve done some dragon scale-esque glitter placement. (more…)
