Sassy Sauce Polish | Polish Con Exclusives

Painted Fingertips | Sassy Sauce Polish - Whole Lotta Lakes - Polish Con Exclusive thermal

Some items in this post were provided for honest review.

Hi everyone!

As I mentioned in my annual roundup post with my top 10 nail art looks from the past year, I am one of the official bloggers for September’s Polish Con. This Polish Con will be taking place here in Minneapolis, and I am so excited that I will be able to attend! I hope I will be able to meet some of you, and of course take lots of pictures and enjoy myself. As an official blogger for the Con, I will be sharing many of the VIP and exclusive polishes for the event with you over the next couple of weeks.

If you see some polishes you can’t pass up, but you also know you can’t attend the event, I recommend joining the Polish Con Facebook group to find out how you can take advantage of the new fairy service. While there’s no guarantee you’ll be able to get a product that is limited, you will at least be able to request those you are interested in.

On to the polish! I am going to do my best to share the VIP and exclusive polishes for each brand in their own post. With only 2 weeks to go until Polish Con, posts about my 5 year celebration giveaway still going up, and a Digital Dozen week on its way, that is going to mean 2 posts most days for the next 2 weeks. That’s a much busier posting schedule than I usually stick to but I will do my best so that you can see all of these beauties! Today, I am starting off with Sassy Sauce Polish. (more…)

Painted Fingertips | Supermoon Lacquer

Painted Fingertips | Supermoon Polish Painted Fingertips - custom purple polish swatch

Hi everyone!

I am so excited to share today’s post with you! I’m excited about all of the 5 customs I had made to celebrate 5 years of Painted Fingertips, but this one has an extra special name – the polish is called Painted Fingertips! I’ve made no secret of the fact that purple is one of my favourite nail polish colours (and colours, in general). I’ve also shared many swatches and nail art looks using Supermoon polish. So, it seemed appropriate to have a purple Supermoon named for this blog that I’ve put so much time and care into. (more…)

Tiny Artworks | Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer

Painted Fingertips | Custom polish - Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer Tiny Artworks

The polish in this post was a gift from the maker.

Hi everyone!

As promised in my 5th blog anniversary giveaway and celebration post, here’s a closer look at one of the gorgeous custom polishes I had made (and that you can win too!). As I mentioned in that post, I contacted 5 of my favourite brands and asked them to create a custom for me. One of the first brands that came to mind was Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer.

Painted Fingertips is 5! 5 Custom Polishes and a GIVEAWAY!

Painted Fingertips | 5 year celebration - custom polishes and giveaway!

Hi everyone!

Yesterday, I celebrated 5 years of blogging over here at Painted Fingertips. I needed a little extra time to get this post together, but here it is: to celebrate 5 years of sharing my love for nail polish and nail art with you, I am giving away 5 custom made nail polishes! A few months ago, as I realised I was coming up on my 5th blogging anniversary, I decided that I wanted to do something extra special. Aside from sharing my top nail art looks of the year, I decided to celebrate each of the past 5 years with a special polish. I contacted 5 of my favourite brands and commissioned custom polishes for the celebration! I also decided that I wanted to share the celebrations with you, by doing a giveaway. Keep reading to enter the giveaway! (more…)

Supermoon Lacquer Triangulum

Painted Fingertips | Supermoon Lacquer Triangulum

Hi everyone!

I don’t know how I haven’t shared swatches of Supermoon Lacquer Triangulum until now, I truly don’t. This was an exclusive polish for Black Friday 2016, so almost 2 years ago. If I remember correctly, it was a gift with purchase to the first 20 people to buy above a certain amount during the sale. I was lucky to get it back then and I’ve always liked it – but for some reason it took me ages to properly swatch it, and once I did, I didn’t get around to posting my swatches for even longer. That turns out to be convenient, since Triangulum is available again right now! This is likely the only time you’ll ever be able to purchase it, since it is a part of Supermoon’s 2nd birthday celebration and is now available on their site. All the details on the sale along with some discount codes are listed in the Facebook fan group. (more…)

Supermoon Lacquer | The Chosen Collection

Painted Fingertips | Swatch - Supermoon Lacquer Fight Your Demons

Hi everyone!

I have a first on here on Painted fingertips today – I am sharing redone swatches of Supermoon’s The Chosen Collection, although I have already shared swatches of these before, back in 2016. The reason for this is that Supermoon Lacquer is having a huge 2-year anniversary celebration right now. As part of the celebration, all polishes from previous collections are available, including some retired shades. There are also several exclusives that are available during the sale, and if you join the Facebook fan group there are some discount codes available. Mardi, the maker behind Supermoon Lacquer, asked if I could reswatch these for her since I’ve upgraded my camera in the meantime, and I could do a better job or capturing their beauty.

Supermoon Lacquer is known for their great formulas and opaque polishes, and these are no exception. All swatches are 2 coats with top coat, and all have a fantastic formula. (more…)

Moonflower Polish | Summer Neons

Hi everyone!

Summer is in full swing in the northern hemisphere, and with it, lots of bright neons! While I wear whatever polish I feel like in all seasons, there’s something summery about bright shades. Moonflower Polish has come out with a set of 8 bright shimmery neons that can be used for stamping or worn on their own. Today I have 4 of the 8 to share with you. This is a picture-heavy post since I have pictures of each polish on its own, over black and white, and stamped in a nail art look that shows one way I’d personally wear these, so get ready for lots of photos and enjoy 🙂 (more…)

Music City Beauty – The Risqué Collection

Hi everyone!

Have you heard about Music City Beauty? If not, maybe you’re familiar with Smokey Mountain Lacquer.

This is the Risqué Collection, and it each polish has a suggestive name to match the theme. (more…)
