Guest Post: Kristi from BeginNails

Hi everyone!

Since I am currently TAing a field camp in Northern Minnesota, I’ve decided to enlist the help of a few of my favourite fellow nail bloggers with some guest posts here on Painted Fingertips. Today I have a guest post from the lovely Kristi of BeginNails. Kristi is a part of the Digital Dozen group with me and does some really cool nail art – go check out her blog and give her a follow if you don’t already follow her!


Greetings and Nailutations,

I’m Kristi from BeginNails and I’ll be guest posting for Kerry today while she is up exploring northern Minnesota.  I was honored that she asked me to guest post and quickly said yes!  Now lets get into the good stuff!

Products used:
Ever After Polish – Spectre Flair
Ribbit’s Stickits – Cuticle Cover
LINA Nail Art Supplies – Feeling Shapely 02 Plate
Clear Jelly Stamper – Big Bling Stamper
Glisten and Glow – HK Girl Top Coat
Drip Drop Nail Paints – Yoga Pants
It Girl Nail Art – Coral

I started with a 3 coat base of Spectre Flair to get complete opacity.  I topped it with HK Girl Top Coat and made sure that was dry before continuing with my stamping.  I protected my skin with Cuticle Cover and I decided to do a mix of stamping with Coral and Yoga Pants with the Shapely 02 Plate.

I rarely do manis that mix and match images and I always love how they turn out.  I hope you did too!

I hope you are enjoying your explorations Kerry!

Happy Polishing,
Kristi aka BeginNails


Don’t her nails look lovely? I’m loving the pink, black and silver colour combination!

Review and Nail Art: Loki’s Nail Vinyls

Hi everyone!

By now you might have seen some nail art looks done using nail vinyls. They have become pretty popular for nail art over the past few months as a way to create patterns and do fun and easy nail art. When Loki’s Nail Vinyls asked me to review their product, I jumped at the chance. There are a few different nail vinyl brands out there already, but these are the first I have had the opportunity to try. Painted Fingertips | Loki's Nail Vinyls (more…)

Freehand Chevrons

Hi everyone!

I recently saw this freehand chevron post on Chalkboard Nails and today I decided to recreate it. I have been seeing chevrons all over lately but most of them are smaller or finer ones created with vinyls or using stamping. I really liked the combination of broader lines with the finer chevrons on Sarah’s nail art. I loved her colour combination as well so I went with something similar:Painted Fingertips | Freehand Chevron Nail Art (more…)
