31DC2016 Day 11: Neon Dotticure

Painted Fingertips | Neon dots for #31DC2016

Hi everyone!

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! (more…)

#31DC2016 Day 7: Black and White Pattern

Painted Fingertips | Black and white freehand nail art for the #31DC2016

Hi everyone!

Today’s theme for the 31 Day Challenge is black and white. It took me a long time to decide what to do for this theme. Whenever I do black and white nails, I feel like I should be able to do something really cool and dramatic, and then I have trouble figuring out what.

Swatches: Darling Diva Polish – Watch Your Pack Collection

Painted Fingertips | Darling Diva Polish - Tainted (Watch your Pack)

The polishes used in this post were provided for my honest review.

Hi everyone!

Today I am excited to share a new collection from Darling Diva Polish with you. This 8-piece collection, called Watch Your Pack, is inspired by the TV show Teen Wolf. I haven’t watched Teen Wolf yet, but considering previous DDP collections include Deadpool, which I liked, and Star Wars, which I love, maybe I should! This collection is releasing this Friday, 22 July, and all polishes are one-pour only, which means when they’re sold out, they’re gone forever. I absolutely love this collection so I’ve taken a lot of pictures (picture heavy post!) and I recently got a macro lens for my phone – if you follow me on Snapchat you may have already seen macros of some of these – so for the first time on Painted Fingertips, I’ll be including macro shots of all polishes as well. Enjoy! (more…)

Painted Fingertips | Sugarspun nail art

Hi everyone!

I have some fun nails to share with you today using a technique I’ve only used twice before: Sugarspun nails! In the past I used this technique to create spiderwebs and in an embarrassing early blog post. Today I have gone with the combination of black and bright colours to create a bold look.  (more…)
