Hi everyone!

It’s Digital Dozen week! This week’s theme is black. This seemed like the perfect theme for me to combine matte and glossy finishes – with a splash of colour, of course! I think this will be a fun theme, although I’m pretty sure I’ll be including at least a little colour each day. (more…)

The Digital Dozen – Birthday Galaxies

Painted Fingertips | Galaxies for the Digital Dozen January Birthdays

Hi everyone!

Today the Digital Dozen are celebrating our January birthdays with some gorgeous galaxies! This month it is Shelly’s birthday from Sassy Shelly – go take a look at her nails if you haven’t already, she does some amazing nail art! She picked out a gorgeous image that just screamed galaxy nails.

Any of you that have been following Painted Fingertips for a long time may recall that galaxy nails haven’t always been my best friend. From my very first attempt more than 3 years ago (don’t click that link, they’re awful!) to glow in the dark galaxies to galaxies with star decals to aliens or eyeshadow galaxies, my galaxies just never work. The only times I’ve really liked any galaxy-themed nails I’ve done was when I steered away from the traditional look and did some fun freehand – like my star wars nails or my very busy spaceship nails. So, I was pretty wary of this theme, but I think I’ve done some galaxies that I’m at least okay with, even if it will still never be my favourite technique. (more…)

Hi everyone!

As promised, I’m here for the first day of the 31 Day Challenge with not just any nail art, but freehand nail art!

Darling Diva Polish Deadpool Collection Part 2

Painted Fingertips | Swatch: Darling Diva Polish As Much Fun as a Sandpaper Dildo

The nail polishes used in this post were provided for my honest review. 

Hi everyone!

I recently showed you Part 1 of the Darling Diva Polish Deadpool Collection consisting of 5 stunning holos. Today I have 3 more polishes from the collection to share with you. I held off on posting these as I was hoping to share all 5 remaining polishes from the collection, but unfortunately I don’t have the 2 cremes to share today. These polishes can look quite different in different lighting setups so if you’d like to see more swatches (including the two I don’t have), check out these swatches by Ida Nails It or these by Musings of the Wife of a Jedi. These polishes are on sale RIGHT NOW so if you see something that needs to become a part of your collection, you can purchase here.

WARNING: Just like the Deadpool movie, these polishes are R-rated.  Some names include swearing and dirty language, so proceed with caution!  (more…)
