Hi everyone!

It’s day 2 of the Digital Dozen does Rainforests and today I have one of my favourite looks of the week to share with you (although my absolute favourite is still coming up on Friday!). I’ve combined some stamping and freehand to create a pretty butterfly nail art.

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!

Hi everyone!

I have a review of another Born Pretty Store stamping plate to share with you today. I’ve actually already used this plate a couple of times, for my multicoloured flowers stamping and for these teal flowers – which I loved, so go take a look! I haven’t shown you the plate specifically yet, though, so I’ve done another 2 manicures using the plate to show you the pretty nail art you can do!Painted Fingertips | Stamped lilies over Darling Diva Francis

#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
