The Digital Dozen Does Futuristic: Jupiter Nails

Hi everyone!

It’s the final day of The Digital Dozen’s Futuristic week, and I’ve saved my favourite look for last! It was only my favourite by a small margin – I loved my metallic dipped fingers as well. The other looks I’ve shared so far this week were some Star Trek nails, holo and neon geometric nails, and chrome half-moon nails. Today, I have done some nails inspired by Jupiter!

Water Marble Wednesday: Color Club Halo Hues!

Hi everyone!

It’s Water Marble Wednesday! I’ve actually been having an incredibly busy week, so I wouldn’t have had time to do a marble for today. Fortunately, I did a whole bunch a week or so ago and I could use one of those, so we still get to enjoy water marble goodness!

You may recall how enthusiastic I was about the stamping abilities of the Color Club Halo Hues a while ago. Well, it turns out they can marble beautifully too! What can’t they do? I’ll have to get my hands on some more of them 🙂Painted Fingertips | Holo water marble with the Color Club Halo Hues (more…)

Roses and Peacock Feathers: BPS plate 01

Some items in this post were provided for review. This post contains affiliate links.

Hi everyone!

I have a review of another Born Pretty Store stamping plate to bring you today – this time with roses and peacock feathers! As I mentioned in the previous posts I did about these plates, I got them in a set of 5 as they are more economical that way, but I still decided to show you each one individually so you could see more pretty nail art 🙂 Today I’m showing you the fifth and final plate from the set. If you missed the first four, I’ll link them here for you – there was a gemstone plate, lacy umbrella plate, dreamcatcher plate, and a floral plate. Now, on to today’s two looks starting off with some pretty peacock feathers. Painted Fingertips | Peacock feather stamping (more…)

Review: Born Pretty Store Umbrella Stamping Plate

Some items in this post were provided for review. This post contains affiliate links.

Hi everyone!

Today I have another Born Pretty Store stamping plate to share with you. As I explained in my first post about this set, I got these in a set of 5 plates which works out cheaper if you want all 5, but they are also available individually. Today I am reviewing plate number 03. Pretty soon you may be wondering why I’ve titled this post ‘umbrella stamping plate’ when there are no umbrellas in it – but if you go look at the plate you will see that the lacy section is arranged in an umbrella shape to make an aesthetically pleasing plate. It’s a really cute way of making the plate nice to look at while still having sections that are large enough to stamp from. Painted Fingertips | Lacy stamping

Hi everyone!

Today I have a review of another Born Pretty Store stamping plate to share with you. This one features an image of a dreamcatcher complete with feathers over the surface of the entire plate. I decided to do my first nail art with the plate using just the feathers. Painted Fingertips | Holographic Feather Stamping

Swatch: Color Club Ruby Slippers

Hi everyone!

I have a swatch to share with you today. I took these pictures a couple of weeks ago and today I had to share them with you because, just a couple of weeks after the tragedy of my first broken nail polish, my second one broke. I no longer have this gorgeous red so this is its last goodbye. I came home to find my husband scrubbing the floor with my nail polish remover… our cat had decided a few polish bottles belonged on the floor and sadly this one didn’t make it.

Ah, well – at least we still have pictures to enjoy! Painted Fingertips | Swatch: Color Club Ruby Slippers

40 Great Nail Art Ideas: Cartoons and Comics

Hi everyone!

I’m sure some of the other ladies taking part in today’s prompt have come up with amazing nails! I can’t wait to go and take a look – their links are at the bottom of this post if you can’t either!

The nails I am sharing with you today are actually what I wore for Halloween. It was my first Halloween in the US and I wanted to dress up but didn’t have anything to make a costume from. I did have my basic makeup collection though, so I decided to go as a Pop Art Cartoon girl, and with nails to match! I’ve also included a picture of my makeup from the night, so stay with me 🙂Painted Fingertips | Pop art cartoon comic nail art (more…)

Freehand Floral Nails

Hi everyone!

For today’s nail art, I just really felt like doing a nice bright gradient and then topping it with something flowery. Once the gradient was done, I couldn’t settle on which way to go with the floral, so I ended up doing something similar to what I did in this post, which was originally inspired by Lacquerstyle.

HPB Presents: Valentines Nails

Hi everyone!

If you’re a follower of my blog, you’ve probably heard about the Facebook Group Hobby Polish Bloggers by now. HPB is a great support group for nail and nail polish bloggers. It’s not about sharing nail pictures, but rather is about discussing, asking for help, and being part of a blogging community. If you’re a blogger too, go check out the group! The past few months, we have been doing a monthly themed linkup for group members. This month’s theme is Valentine’s. Here’s what I came up with: Painted Fingertips | Roses and hearts Valentine's nail art (more…)

Negative Space Hearts

Hi everyone!

Today’s nail art was inspired by a recent Instagram post by @cdbnails143. I was scrolling down my feed when I saw some absolutely beautiful negative space nail art she had done. A lot of negative space art doesn’t appeal to me, but I really liked this one! I have only tried negative space art once before. CDBnails’ original manicure was done with stamping, but since I didn’t have the same stamping plate, I decided to try a freehand version: Painted Fingertips | Negative space hearts nail art (more…)
