Swatches and a GIVEAWAY! Supermoon Lacquer The Chosen Collection

The polishes used in this post include both press samples and items purchased at a blogger discount.

Hi everyone!

I am so excited to share today’s post with you. Not only am I going to share seven beautiful new polishes from The Howling Boutique’s Supermoon Lacquer with you, but there is also a giveaway at the end! You will be able to win your choice of two of these beauties – this post is picture heavy but be sure to make it through to the end for the giveaway!

Supermoon Lacquer is a relatively new brand, but one that has already caught my eye – you may have noticed me using one of their polishes as the base for my water drops nail art a couple of weeks ago. Of course, I jumped at the chance to swatch their new, gloriously darker collection, filled with shimmer and shift. This is Supermoon’s third full collection and it may just be their best yet!

#31DC2016 Day 22: Inspired by a Song – Kite

Hi everyone!

Today’s theme in the 31 Day Challenge is ‘inspired by a song’. I decided to choose one of my favourite U2 songs, Kite. Even though I know the song isn’t about actual kites, I decided to just go with a very literal interpretation of its name. Painted Fingertips | Kite nails for the #31DC2016 inspired by a song

31DC2016 Day 13: Flamingo Animal Print

Hi everyone!

Today’s theme in the 31 Day Challenge is animal print. I’ve never been that much of a fan of the ‘usual’ types of animal print you see – leopard and zebra – although I did enjoy the mini leopard print I did a while back. For today’s look, I decided to stretch the definition of animal print and did a look that reminded me of an Hawaiian print shirt, complete with a flamingo.

Swatches: Darling Diva Polish – Watch Your Pack Collection

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!

#5minutenailart: Nail Foils

Hi everyone!

It’s time for another quick 5 minute nail art look! If you aren’t familiar with this series, you can go check out my first #5minutenailart post for an explanation, but the basic idea is that I’ll start with a plain, single-colour manicure as a base, and then have just 5 minutes to turn it into nail art. Painted Fingertips | Nail foil #5minutenailart

Hi everyone!

I have a review of another Born Pretty Store stamping plate to share with you today. I’ve actually already used this plate a couple of times, for my multicoloured flowers stamping and for these teal flowers – which I loved, so go take a look! I haven’t shown you the plate specifically yet, though, so I’ve done another 2 manicures using the plate to show you the pretty nail art you can do!Painted Fingertips | Stamped lilies over Darling Diva Francis

I finally did it! I finally came up with a post title based on one of the nail polishes I used! I see other bloggers having these catchy titles all the time and I usually just can’t 🙂
