It’s day 2 of the Digital Dozen’s Throwback week and today I’m doing a throwback to these gorgeous love nails done by Sarah of 25 Sweetpeas back in February during the Digital Dozen’s Black week. The black theme coincided with Valentine’s Day so she decided to do some black and white love-themed nails, which I think were gorgeous. Here’s my version:(more…)
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!
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: BeginNails blog Facebook Instagram Pinterest Twitter Youtube Google +
Can you believe we’re already at the end of Digital Dozen week? This week has just flown by! I’m especially glad it’s Friday though – I didn’t have a particularly tough week, but for some reason I’m really tired out and I need a weekend!
For the final day of the Digital Dozen does black week, I’ve included the least colour of any day – just a little silver holo – over the black base. Let’s take a look! (more…)
It’s day 3 of the Digital Dozen Does Black! So far I’ve shared two stamped looks exploiting the contrast between glossy and matte – one with pink accents, and the other with gold. Today I’m finally steering away from the stamping. I enjoyed the milky coffee water marble I did last week so much that I’ve decided to bring Water Marble Wednesday back for a while! I won’t be committing to posting a marble every single Wednesday, but I do have a couple lined up and ideas for a few more 🙂 I’m starting it off today with a black and clear water marble over a neon gradient.
It’s Digital Dozen week! This week’s theme is black. This seemed like the perfect theme for me to combine matte and glossy finishes – with a splash of colour, of course! I think this will be a fun theme, although I’m pretty sure I’ll be including at least a little colour each day. (more…)
It’s the final day of Digital Dozen vampy week! I’ve made it through my first week with the group and it’s been a lot of fun. The other bloggers in this group are really talented, I’m looking forward to future DD weeks already!
What would my first Digital Dozen week be without a water marble? It’s day 3 of the Digital Dozen Vampy week and it’s Wednesday – the perfect time to combine my Digital Dozen beginnings with remembering my Water Marble Wednesday series!
Wow, I can’t believe it’s been a full week since I’ve posted! I intended to post more last week but I’ve been having a particularly crazy time with work, and after the 31 Day Challenge, I just didn’t have a post ready to go. Good news though – I’ll be posting every day this week! And not just any posts, Digital Dozen posts! That’s right, I’m now a member of the Digital Dozen nail art group! If you follow a lot of nail art blogs, you’ve probably heard of the group already. If not, the Digital Dozen is a group of nail bloggers who choose a theme each month and then post 5 nail art looks for the theme during one week, Monday to Friday. The group has been around for 4 years already, with membership changing over time, and I’ve always looked up to the members as fantastic nail artists. I am really excited that I have the opportunity to be in this group now! I think it’ll be a lot of fun and hopefully I’ll create some great nail art to share with you all.
This month’s theme, for my first month with the Digital Dozen, is vampy.
Today’s 31 Day Challenge theme is dots! I decided to do a neon dotticure. I wasn’t sure if this counts as freehand, since I was using a dotting tool – but then again I was using the dotting tool freehand? It’s a grey area, so I just went bright and detailed to make it count!
