#5minutenailart – 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! Painted Fingertips | 5 minute nail art: 2 glitters

#5minutenailart: Striping Tape

Hi everyone!

About 2 weeks ago, I introduced you to my idea of #5minutenailart. In case you missed it, the first post I did was some delicate minty nail art. The idea behind this is that I challenge myself to come up with some nail art that takes only 5 minutes to complete, both because I don’t always have more time to spend and to show those that have yet to try nail art that it doesn’t have to take forever!

The rules are that I start with a completed, normal single-colour manicure. I then set my timer and give myself just 5 minutes to add some lovely nail art. So if you have time to paint your nails at all – you have time for nail art! Painted Fingertips | #5minutenailart - striping tape

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

31DC2015 Day 10: Gradient!

Hi everyone!

Today’s theme is gradient, and I finally got around to doing some nails I’ve been meaning to do for ages. For this same prompt last year, Sarah from Chalkboard Nails did some fireflies on a sunset gradient. The look was hugely popular and I loved it too! I have finally done my own version.
