Review and Nail art: Born Pretty Store Watermelon Stamping Polish

Some items in this post were provided for review. This post contains affiliate links.

Hi everyone!

Today I have a review of a Born Pretty Store stamping polish to share with you. I’ve reviewed a few from this line before and I’ve really liked them! This time, I have Born Pretty Store stamping polish #17 (watermelon). As usual, I’ve done two different looks to show you how the polish performs over both dark and light bases. I like my second look the best, so be sure to click through and see them both! Painted Fingertips | Watermelon Disco lightning stamping (more…)

Hi everyone!

Today I’m reviewing another Born Pretty Store stamping plate, as usual with two different nail art looks. These are really pretty so make sure you click through and scroll down to see both of them! Both were created with plate Floral BPX-L018. This plate even has ‘floral’ in its name, but it actually consists mostly of leafy images. It will be an amazing plate to use for autumn manicures, but I’ve managed to create 2 looks that are more springy for today.

Hi everyone!

As the saying goes, April showers bring May flowers – we’ve been having plenty of April showers, I’m just waiting on the May flowers! I decided to start a little early on my nails.

Polish ‘M: Olive You From My Head Tomatoes

Hi everyone!

I have a swatch of a gorgeous polish to share with you today. I recently discovered a Facebook group especially for Olive polish and just in time! Not long after I joined, I found out Polish ‘M was about to do a group custom. Polish ‘M has quickly become one of my favourite indie brands, and once I started seeing swatches in the group, I knew I had to get my hands on this one. Now there is a very important reason why I am posting this on a Saturday when I don’t usually do weekend posts: this beauty is only available until Monday, 24 April! There is a pre-order for this polish in the olive polish group which closes on Monday. Since I was one of the first to order this polish on the day the pre-order opened, I was lucky enough to get a bottle from the batch that had already been made for official swatches, so I’ve managed to get it swatched in time to share with you while it is still available. As far as I know, it will never be available again, so order it while you can! Painted Fingertips | Swatch - Polish 'M Olive You From My Head Tomatoes! (more…)

Hi everyone!

Today I have a review of another Born Pretty Store stamping polish to share with you. The only blue stamping polish I had was the very pale pastel I used here, so I decided it was time to get my hands on another blue. Today I’m sharing 2 nail art looks using Born Pretty stamping polish #284.Painted Fingertips | Supermoon I Warned You with blue floral stamping

Review and Nail Art: Konifer Wood Watches

Some items in this post were provided for review.

Hi everyone!

I was recently approached by Konifer Wooden Watches to review one of their watches and share it with you. I liked some of the options I saw on the website, so I decided to give one a try. Aside from watches, you can also get sunglasses and even wooden rings on the site. Konifer is based in Canada and advertises a 5 year warranty on all watches. They also promise to plant a tree for every purchase made, which is great! Painted Fingertips | Konifer wooden watch (more…)

The Digital Dozen Does Get to Know Me: Running!

Hi everyone!

It’s the final day of Digital Dozen Get to Know Me week! I’ve only managed to share 3 nail arts this week because I’ve been particularly busy with presentations, field trips and proposals due, but be sure to check out the other Digital Dozen members’ blogs and get to know them a little better.

So far this week, I’ve shared something about my career and my sweet kitty-cat. You already know that my hobby is nail art. Today I’ve done nails dedicated to the type of exercise I enjoy – running! Painted Fingertips | Running girl nail art (more…)

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 🙂
