Water Marble Wednesday: Layered Water Marble

Hi everyone!

It’s Water Marble Wednesday! Do you remember last week’s marble? Do you remember me mentioning that it would be important for this week, too? …Have you spotted it yet? Last week’s marble is actually the base for this week’s marble! I’ve done my first ever layered water marble. I’ve done marbles over gradients or other art bases before, but this is my first time layering two marbles!

The Digital Dozen Does Black: Matte with Gold Accents

This post contains affiliate links.

Hi everyone!

It’s day 2 of the Digital Dozen Does Black. Yesterday, I showed you some matte on glossy black stamping with a pink accent. Today I’ve done something with a pretty similar idea behind it, even if the look itself is quite different. I’ve again combined matte and glossy finishes and added a splash of colour.

The Digital Dozen Does Black – Pink Accents

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. Painted Fingertips | Black with matte stamping and pink accents (more…)

Drip Marble in Red, Green and Gold

Hi everyone!

I have some really fun nail art to share with you today – a drip marble! If you’re thinking that red, green and gold sounds like a pretty Christmassy colour scheme, you’re absolutely right. I actually did these a couple of months ago with the intention of posting them in the week before Christmas as some holiday nail art. As it turned out, I didn’t get a chance to actually schedule the post before I left for my vacation, so this poor nail art has been sitting unposted since then! I decided to share it with you now because you can wear red, green and gold any time you want. These pretty colours don’t have to be exclusive to December! Besides, I liked this nail art and I hope you’ll enjoy it too 🙂Painted Fingertips | Drip marble in red, green and gold (more…)

Review and Nail Art: BPS Silicone Stamping Mat

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

Hi everyone!

Have you tried one of the silicone stamping mats that have become popular recently? I feel like I’ve seen them everywhere lately, and I honestly didn’t quite see the appeal – what makes this better than working over a magazine, or using a stamper head to make decals? Well, I received one in my latest review package from Born Pretty Store, so I decided to try it out. I’ve used it to help me out in creating two manicures, so read on for pretty pictures and my thoughts on whether or not a stamping mat is worth it!

The Digital Dozen – Birthday Galaxies

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.

Hi everyone!

Today I have a review of some patterned nail foils from Born Pretty Store to share with you. The foil comes rolled up in a small bottle, with about a metre-long strip of foil included. It is a pretty pattern and just look at the holographic effect! Painted Fingertips | Born Pretty Store patterned nail foils
