Painted Fingertips | Blue triangle nail polish decals

Hi everyone!

I decided to try a new-to-me technique today that I’ve seen around in a few places. I made some triangular nail polish decals in different shades of blue and put them together to get some fun geometric-looking nail art.  (more…)

Painted Fingertips | #5minutenailart - red with blue hearts

Hi everyone!

It’s time for another #5minutenailart! Are you excited? If you don’t know what this is all about, go take a look at my first post in the series, but the basic premise is that I start with a base of a single colour, your standard manicure, then I have just 5 minutes to turn it into some fun nail art!  (more…)

Ice Creams! – 40 Great Nail Art Ideas for Food

Painted Fingertips | Ice Cream Stamping over Silly Bee's Chickadees - Steph's Sugar Plum Suite

Hi everyone!

Today’s theme is food and while I considered doing something similar to this cute fruit print, I just didn’t feel all that inspired. Then, once I put Silly Bee’s Chickadees Steph’s Sugar Plum Suite on my nails, it reminded me so much of a delicious milkshake that I knew it would be the perfect base for a tasty ice cream manicure.

#5minutenailart – 2 glitters

Painted Fingertips | 5 minute nail art: 2 glitters

Hi everyone!

Today I have another #5minutenailart post to share with you! I explained the idea in my first #5minutenailart post, but the basic premise is that I start with a base of a plain, single-colour manicure. I then set a timer for 5 minutes and I have to turn it into some pretty nail art in that time! The idea is that if you have time to do your nails at all, then you have time to do some pretty nail art! (more…)

I Love You with all of my ME! – 40 Great Nail Art Ideas for Love

Painted Fingertips | Heart and Brain Nail art

Hi everyone!

Today I have another post from the Crumpet’s Nail Tarts challenge and today’s theme is love. I found inspiration from The Awkward Yeti. The Awkward Yeti writes a comic focussing on the interactions between Heart and Brain – for us nail polish addicts, think Heart wants to buy ALL the new collections but Brain knows you need money for food 😉

I searched through the comics looking for one I could turn into nail art – most had too much text but eventually I found this one which was not only adorable, but was also perfect for today’s theme. (more…)

A Real Snowy Day

Painted Fingertips | A real snowy day

Hi everyone!

Over the past few weeks I’ve already posted snowman nails, snow-covered trees, and snowflake nails, and here I am with yet another snowy look! Why all the snow nails? Well, first of all, it’s the first time I’m actually having winter at this time of the year, and secondly, it’s my first time experiencing snow! Each snowfall has been beautiful to me and it’s only natural to want to put that on my nails. (more…)

HPB Presents: Snowmen at Christmas AND 40 great nail art ideas for Christmas!

Painted Fingertips | A family of snowmen at Christmas

Hi everyone!

I have a couple more pictures than usual today but I think you’ll agree, it’s worth it! Besides, today is my birthday and I can show you as many pictures as I want! That’s also how I’m getting away with using this one nail art for two different things – this is both for the Christmas theme in my Crumpets Nail Tarts collaborative challenge, AND for the holiday/winter theme being done by the Hobby Polish Bloggers group today. Maybe that’s why I had to make these nails so great 😉 (more…)
