Art Deco Pineapple | The Digital Dozen Does Tropical

Painted Fingertips | Art Deco Pineapple nails - The Digital Dozen does Tropical

Hi everyone!

It’s day 2 of the Digital Dozen does Tropical! I’m really enjoying this theme. I’ve managed to get all 5 looks for the week done and I like all of them, I hope you will too! I already shared a tropical floral look yesterday, and today I’ve got some pineapple nails. I was thinking about different fruits that I could use for the tropical theme and my mind got stuck on pineapples. When I think of pineapple nail art, I always think of Sarah from 25Sweetpeas who is a big fan of pineapples and has done several fun nail arts featuring them. Of course I turned to a few of her past looks for inspiration! (more…)

Freehand Floral | The Digital Dozen Does Tropical

Painted Fingertips | Freehand Floral for The Digital Dozen does Tropical

Hi everyone!

I’m back after a short unintended break from blogging, and it’s Digital Dozen week! I spent most of July TAing a field camp and so I couldn’t do nail art or blog, but I got some posts up for while I’d be away – and then when I got back, I was so busy catching up on everything else that I didn’t get a chance for blogging, until now. I’m excited to get back into the swing of things with this Digital Dozen week! The theme is tropical and I have some fun looks to share with you. To start off with, I have a leafy floral look.

Rose Claw Nails

Hi everyone!

I was filing my nails the other day when I had the urge to try something different. I usually file my nails edges first, then tips, so there’s always a moment when I’m left with more of a pointed claw/almond shape – this time, I decided to shape all of my nails that way and do at least one nail art before deciding if I’d round them off to my usual oval shape.

Ornate Brown Stamping

Hi everyone!

I have an ornate turquoise and brown stamped look to share with you today that I really loved. A couple of months ago, I picked up my very first Emily de Molly polish during March’s Polish Pickup. I was not disappointed! I love turquoise shades and this one was gorgeous with its tiny coppery flakes. I decided to play off those copper flakes with some brown stamping: (more…)

Soap Bubbles | The Digital Dozen Does White

Painted Fingertips | Soap bubble nail art - The Digital Dozen does White

Hi everyone!

It’s day 3 of the Digital Dozen does white, and as you can see, I’ve done something really different for today’s look. As I was listing off things that are white to brainstorm nail art ideas for this week, one of the things I noted down was soap bubbles. At first, I wanted to paint individual bubbles, similar to the water drops I did in this look. However, I soon realised that these are more rainbow than white. I felt sure there must be a way to get a foaming soap bubble look, and some searching led me to this tutorial on Brijit’s Digits. (more…)

Hi everyone!

It’s day 2 of The Digital Dozen does white – and I have my least-white look of the week to share! At least, it’s probably my least white look; I haven’t finished the last one yet so we’ll see. Yesterday, I shared some cute fluffy sheep nail art. Today, I’ve once again gone with white subject matter in the form of white doves – although the nail art itself contains only a little of the colour white. I also wound up doing animals for the second time this week, which was fun. (more…)

Sheep Nails | The Digital Dozen Does White

Painted Fingertips | Sheep Nail Art - The Digital Dozen does White

Hi everyone!

It’s Digital Dozen week! This week’s theme is white. At first I didn’t like this theme at all – I was thinking that I’d have to do predominantly white, bridal-looking manicures all week. There’s nothing inherently wrong with that, but those types of looks just aren’t my usual style. Even for my own wedding, I wore turquoise nail polish! That made me dread the idea of an all-white week. That was until I had the idea to do nail art based on things that are white, rather than just making white the dominant colour. This meant that I could use plenty of colours, and I had fun coming up with things that are white! (more…)

Water Marble Wednesday | Music City Beauty Neons

Painted Fingertips | Music City Beauty Neon water marble

Hi everyone!

It’s Water Marble Wednesday! Today I have a vibrant neon water marble to share with you. I recently swatched the Music City Beauty Risqué collection, consisting of 6 neon cremes. I mentioned in that post that the collection could water marble, and here’s the proof! I’ve actually already done a second water marble with some of the polishes from this collection, so be on the lookout for when I post that one. (more…)
