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!

The Digital Dozen Does Art: Elspeth McLean’s Lotus Family of Three

Hi everyone!

It’s Day 5 of The Digital Dozen Does Art! I made it – I’m posting later than usual, but it’s still Friday! I only found an artwork that I found inspiring and that I could figure out a good nail art composition for last night, so this one ended up a little more last-minute. I really loved this theme but I’m glad it’s over for now – as the saying goes, variety is the spice of life, and I’m now ready for some simple, quick nail art 🙂Painted Fingertips | The Digital Dozen Does Art - Elspeth McLean Lotus Family of Three (more…)

31DC2016 Day 11: Neon Dotticure

Hi everyone!

Today’s 31 Day Challenge theme is dots! I decided to do a neon dotticure. I wasn’t sure if this counts as freehand, since I was using a dotting tool – but then again I was using the dotting tool freehand? It’s a grey area, so I just went bright and detailed to make it count! Painted Fingertips | Neon dots for #31DC2016

Watch and Nail Art: JORD Cora Wood Watch

Some items in this post have been provided for photography and review.

***UPDATE***

The wood joining the watch face to the strap broke while I was wearing the watch. I was just sitting there, not doing anything to cause it to break. I am contacting JORD to see if they can help me with this issue.

Hi everyone!

Today I have a gorgeous watch and nail art to share with you. If you love this watch (or any of the others JORD makes!) be sure to scroll to the end of the post – you could win a gift code for $75 off one of their watches. Painted Fingertips | Jord Cora Watch and Nails

#5minutenailart: Polka dots

Hi everyone!

I had a rough start to the week when I woke up Monday morning with some pretty bad abdominal pain. I ended up going to the hospital and after being examined by several doctors, having blood tests and a CT scan they confirmed it was appendicitis. If you’ve ever been in the hospital for something like this, you’ll know there is a lot of waiting involved! I was well taken care of though and I wound up in surgery late Monday night. Luckily an appendectomy is pretty much the most routine surgery there is, so I wasn’t too worried – just glad I could get better. I’m back home now and just feeling weak and tired and I can’t concentrate for long.

Fortunately, I had a bunch of posts lined up that I just had to write up – so at least I can blog! Today I have another 5 minute nail art post lined up for you. I covered it all in my first #5minutenailart post, but basically I start with a plain base colour and have just 5 minutes to turn it into art. Painted Fingertips | 5 minute nail art: polka dots

Tri-Polish Challenge: Dots and swirls

Hi everyone!

It’s Tuesday and that means it’s time for the Tri-Polish Challenge! This month’s colours are red, blue, and yellow. Last week I started off with a bang with these cute octopus nails. This week I was also inspired by another blogger – I loved these swirly nails by Adventures in Acetone and decided to be a copycat 🙂essence-wanns-be-your-sunshine-essie-lots-of-lux-sally-hansen-sugar-coat-cherry-drop-texture-dots-and-swirls (more…)
