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

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. Painted Fingertips | Heart and Brain Nail art

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. Painted Fingertips | A real snowy day

HPB Presents: Snowmen at Christmas AND 40 great nail art ideas for 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 😉Painted Fingertips | A family of snowmen at Christmas

40 Great Nail Art Ideas for Winter!

Hi everyone!

Today I have another collaborative post with the other ladies from Crumpet’s Nail Tarts. Today’s theme is winter and for the first time for me, winter means snow. I’ve done plenty of snowy nail art before, it’s just the first time I’m experiencing it first-hand! I was inspired by the lovely trees I can see out of my window, becoming covered in snow. Painted Fingertips | Snow-covered trees

Bright and Bold Sugarspun Nails

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. Painted Fingertips | Sugarspun nail art

Cobalt and Peach Water Marble

Hi everyone!

It’s Water Marble Wednesday! You might remember me mentioning a couple of times that I’m taking part in a weekly nail art challenge on Instagram this month. I’m cheating a little on this one by blogging these nails a bit earlier than the Instagram challenge – these are the nails for next Friday but I needed a good water marble for today!

Water Marble Wednesday: Water Lilies

Hi everyone!

It’s Water Marble Wednesday and today I was inspired by this water lily nail art by Adventures in Acetone. Jacki created a watery background with a needle drag and added the lilies on top. I immediately thought I’d be able to create the same look using a water marble! Painted Fingertips | watery blue water marble (more…)
