HPB Presents: Halloween Pumpkin Nail Art

Painted Fingertips | Pumpkin Halloween Nail Art

Hi everyone!

I just love the Halloween nail art I’ve created today – I hope you’ll enjoy it too! I’ve done this one for this month’s Hobby Polish Bloggers group nail art Halloween theme. Last October was our first Halloween in the US and carving a pumpkin was one of my favourite parts. It looked so cool with a candle burning inside! These pumpkins haven’t been carved yet, though.

31DC2016 Day 31: Honour Nails You Love – Landscape Nails

Painted Fingertips | Landscape nail art for the #31DC2016

Hi everyone!

It’s the final day of the 31 Day Challenge! Can you believe it? I’m so glad that I’ve made it through this year’s challenge, and congratulations to everyone else who took part! The final theme is ‘honour nails you love’. I really enjoy this theme, because I love doing nail art inspired by others. There are so many fantastic nail bloggers, and when I see nails I love it’s hard not to recreate them. I often go to others when I’m in need of inspiration, too. If I can’t decide what to do on my nails, I’ll head to my Pinterest boards or catch up on my blog reading and see if it gives me any ideas. One of the nail artists who inspires me the most is Narmai of Piggieluv. She has incredible freehand nail art skills and comes up with the best, and often the craziest (in a good way!) ideas. So, it was only natural that I recreate one of her nail art looks for the final day of the challenge and I decided to go with some freehand landscape nails. (more…)

31DC2016 Day 28: Inspired by the US flag

Painted Fingertips | Nails inspired by the US flag for the #31DC2016

Hi everyone!

Today’s theme for the 31 Day Challenge is ‘inspired by a flag’. This has never been a very popular theme of the challenge; to me it seems oddly specific compared to most of the other themes. The American flag is usually popular, firstly since so many bloggers are from the US and secondly because the vibrant colours and the stars and stripes both lend themselves to nail art. I’ve never gone in that direction before, until today! (more…)

31DC2016 Day 25: Inspired by floral denim jacket – fashion

Painted Fingertips | Floral nails inspired by denim jacket - fashion for the #31DC2016

Hi everyone!

Today’s theme in the 31 Day Challenge is inspired by fashion. I only just got this one done in time for today! A couple of weeks ago, my husband and I were shopping for some much-needed jeans when he noticed a beautifully embroidered floral denim jacket at Alpaca Connection. It was gorgeous and completely my style so he ended up buying it for me. I decided to do today’s nails inspired by the jacket. (more…)
