The Digital Dozen’s Throwback Week: Dots and More Dots!

Hi everyone!

It’s the final day of The Digital Dozen’s Throwback week – I’ve made it! I’ve had a very busy week and I wasn’t sure I’d get this last post done on time, but it’s here, and I also really love today’s nail art! In case you’ve missed my other posts this week, I decided to interpret the Throwback theme by recreating past nail art looks done in Digital Dozen theme weeks by other Digital Dozen members. So far this week, I’ve done poison dart frog nails inspired by Manis & Makeovers, LOVE nails inspired by 25 Sweetpeas, a spacey water marble inspired by Copycat Claws, and dragon eye nails inspired by More Nail Polish. Although I’ve liked every one of those looks, today’s is my favourite for the week!

Microbead Flowers (part 2!)

Hi everyone!

Today I have another post in the ’40 Great Nail Art Ideas’ by Crumpet’s Nail Tarts and today’s theme is floral. I have something extra special to share with you today and I’m excited that you finally get to see it… I did this weeks ago already and I was saving it up for the spring! Painted Fingertips | Microbead floral nail art

That’s right – I’ve done full-on placed microbead nail art again and I LOVE it!

#5minutenailart: Grey-t To Use Glitter

Hi everyone!

I finally did it! I finally came up with a post title based on one of the nail polishes I used! I see other bloggers having these catchy titles all the time and I usually just can’t 🙂

I have another #5minutenailart to share with you today and this is one of my favourites I’ve done so far! If you’d like to know more about what this series is about, you can check out my first #5minutenailart post. The basic idea is that I’ll start with a base of a single-colour manicure, then have just 5 minutes to turn it into nail art. Painted Fingertips | 5 minute nail art: Glitter

I Love You with all of my ME! – 40 Great Nail Art Ideas for Love

Hi everyone!

Today I have another post from the Crumpet’s Nail Tarts challenge and today’s theme is love. I found inspiration from The Awkward Yeti. The Awkward Yeti writes a comic focussing on the interactions between Heart and Brain – for us nail polish addicts, think Heart wants to buy ALL the new collections but Brain knows you need money for food 😉

I searched through the comics looking for one I could turn into nail art – most had too much text but eventually I found this one which was not only adorable, but was also perfect for today’s theme. Painted Fingertips | Heart and Brain Nail art

Happy New Year – and Sparkling Stamping

Hi everyone!

Happy New Year! I hope 2016 will be a happy and successful year for us all. To start it off, I have some silver, sparkly, stamped nails to share with you. I actually thought these would be great to wear to celebrate the turn of the year, but I didn’t get a chance to post them last week so let’s celebrate the first of January with them instead!

Rainbow Nails for Day 9 of the 31 Day Challenge

Hi everyone!

I had some trouble deciding what to do for today’s prompt. I’ve done rainbow gradients before, so I wanted to try something different. The first idea I had didn’t work out at all but I am actually glad because I love the result of my next idea:Painted Fingertips | Rainbow nails - 31 Day Challenge 2014 Day 9 (more…)

The Neverending Pile Challenge: Discontinued Polish

Hi everyone!

Today’s theme in the Neverending Pile Challenge is a discontinued polish. I’m not really someone who will go to great lengths to get my hands on a specific polish just because it’s limited edition or something – I tend to think if you like a polish, you should be able to get it. Of course, I do buy limited editions too when I like them! This particular one I found on a sale rack at Clicks not long after I started getting into nail polish. I can’t find a lot of info on it so I’m not sure if it was available in other countries as well or not. Here it is (along with some nail art) – Yardley Glitter Glam Couture Cocktail. nail-art-yardley-couture-cocktail-tape-studs-black-green-brown (more…)

Neverending Pile: A Random Untried

Hi everyone!

It’s time for the next installment of the Neverending Pile Challenge. Today’s prompt is simply a random untried. I sort of wish this prompt had come later in the challenge, so I could see what untrieds I still had left over, but I had some fun with this anyway. essence-colour-&-go-grey-t-to-be-here-flowers-tip-top-nail-chic-synergy-essie-pretty-edgy-tribal-colour-11-sinful-colors-black-on-black (more…)
