I have some really pretty stamping over Polish ‘M Cheer to share with you today – I don’t know why it’s taken me so long to post these to the blog! I’ve had these pictures sitting in my ready-to-post folder since May and between Digital Dozen posts, Water Marble Wednesdays, and reviews, it just kept getting pushed back. Thankfully I am finally getting around to it because it deserves a little love!
It’s Water Marble Wednesday! Do you remember last week’s marble? Do you remember me mentioning that it would be important for this week, too? …Have you spotted it yet? Last week’s marble is actually the base for this week’s marble! I’ve done my first ever layered water marble. I’ve done marbles over gradients or other art bases before, but this is my first time layering two marbles!
I’m still out of town TAing a field camp, so for today I have enlisted Nichole of Bedlam Beauty to share her gorgeous nails with us! She’s come up with something quite special, so let’s get to it!

I know it’s only July, but I have some Halloween nail art for you today! I have two nail art looks using Born Pretty Store plate BP-L057, which has some perfect Halloween images. I wanted to share it with you now so that you have time to order it and get it in time for Halloween!
I got this plate using my Born Pretty Store points. Did you know that they have a point system? You can upload pictures of nail art using their products and earn points, which you can use to purchase more products from their store.
Are you familiar with Crowstoes Nail Color? If you are, you’ve probably seen pictures of some of their incredible multichromes, or perhaps you own some yourself! Not long ago, I was lucky enough to win a small giveaway in their Facebook fan group which basically amounted to enough store credit for one polish. I decided to try out one of those multichromes I’d been drooling over forever!
Since I am currently TAing a field camp in Northern Minnesota, I’ve decided to enlist the help of a few of my favourite fellow nail bloggers with some guest posts here on Painted Fingertips. Today I have a guest post from the lovely Kristi of BeginNails. Kristi is a part of the Digital Dozen group with me and does some really cool nail art – go check out her blog and give her a follow if you don’t already follow her!
Greetings and Nailutations,
I’m Kristi from BeginNails and I’ll be guest posting for Kerry today while she is up exploring northern Minnesota. I was honored that she asked me to guest post and quickly said yes! Now lets get into the good stuff!
Ever After Polish – Spectre Flair
Ribbit’s Stickits – Cuticle Cover
LINA Nail Art Supplies – Feeling Shapely 02 Plate
Clear Jelly Stamper – Big Bling Stamper
Glisten and Glow – HK Girl Top Coat
Drip Drop Nail Paints – Yoga Pants
It Girl Nail Art – Coral
I started with a 3 coat base of Spectre Flair to get complete opacity. I topped it with HK Girl Top Coat and made sure that was dry before continuing with my stamping. I protected my skin with Cuticle Cover and I decided to do a mix of stamping with Coral and Yoga Pants with the Shapely 02 Plate.
I rarely do manis that mix and match images and I always love how they turn out. I hope you did too!
I hope you are enjoying your explorations Kerry!
Kristi aka BeginNails
Don’t her nails look lovely? I’m loving the pink, black and silver colour combination!
Don’t forget to go show Kristi some love on her blog and social media! Here are some links where you can take a look at more of her work and give her a follow:
It’s day 5 of the Digital Dozen Does Continents! We’ve made it! I’m finishing off the week with the second continent I’ve lived on! I am currently working on my PhD in the US – so today we’re celebrating North America.
