It’s day 4 of the Digital Dozen does Look Up. This week is flying by! I can’t believe it’s already Thursday. So far this week, I’ve shared a neon night sky, some foiled snowflakes, and holo galaxy nails. Today I have one that I don’t regularly see when I look up, but it would be fun if I did! I’ve stamped some cute little owls.
Halloween is almost here, can you believe it? I’ve done a couple of Halloween nail art looks and I can’t wait to share them with you! You may already have noticed some Halloween-themed stamping in the Moonflower Polish Gemstones Collection post I shared last week. Today’s look is some very simple stamping, but it works so well.

Today I have five glorious holographic stamping polishes to share with you! These are from the Gemstones Collection part 1 from Moonflower Polish. I was so excited to try these as I think holographic stamping polishes look amazing! This collection consists of a gold, silver, black, purple, and turquoise, all of which stamp beautifully. I’ll start things off with the purple, Amatista.
On Wednesday, Painted Fingertips is turning 5! Over the past 3 years, for each blog birthday, I’ve shared my top 10 nail art looks from the preceding year to celebrate my blogging anniversary. This year, I have something else to celebrate the actual day. I’ll give you a hint – it involves 5 very special polishes, and a giveaway, so be sure to check back then! I still wanted to share my top 10 looks from the past year as well – and it seems appropriate to have a little more celebration after 5 years of blogging. On my first blogging anniversary, I shared how I had improved in one year. After that, to celebrate two years, three years, and four years, I shared my top 10 looks from the preceding year. I always enjoy looking back on those posts!
It’s become a bit of a tradition to include a little life update each year in this post, so if you’re only here for nails, scroll down to see my top 10! (more…)
It’s the final day of The Digital Dozen does tropical! Digital Dozen weeks always just fly by. I’ve really enjoyed this theme; so far this week, I’ve shared pineapple nails, a tropical floral, a neon sunset, and a watermelon water marble. I decided to finish the look off with some flamingo nail art. Flamingos have been a really popular subject this week, I think about 4 or 5 of the other Digital Dozen ladies have already done flamingo looks. They really are perfect for the theme, and with their unique pink colour and interesting shapes they are ideal for nail art. (more…)
I managed to get my final look done for the Digital Dozen’s mythical creatures week, just one day late. Phew! So far this week, I’ve shared nail art looks inspired by dragons, fairies, phoenix, and unicorns. I had so much fun with this week’s theme, and honestly I think it’s been one of my best Digital Dozen weeks! The only look I didn’t absolutely LOVE was my unicorn one.
For today’s look, I needed to get something done in a hurry after my giant Moonflower stamping polish post set me a day behind. I looked through the pictures from the other Digital Dozen members this week and this basilisk look by Manis & Makeovers really stood out to me. My look turned out quite different from hers, but she definitely inspired me. (more…)
It’s day 4 of the Digital Dozen does Futuristic! So far this week, I’ve shared Star Trek nails, chrome half-moon nails, and metal-dipped fingers. For today’s look, I was thinking about the directions that a lot of movies take with futuristic fashion. Think the garish colours of capitol fashion in The Hunger Games, or the hard geometric lines, lights and metallic finishes of the fashion in Tron. I wasn’t inspired by any specific movie, but it was with these types of bright colours, geometric shapes, and metallic finishes in mind that I came up with today’s nail art look. (more…)
