Hi everyone!

Today I have some double stamping to share with you. I keep seeing amazing double-stamped nails, and it never quite seems to work out for me! I really like the colour combination I’ve used today though, and it certainly creates an interesting look.  (more…)

#5minutenailart: Grey-t To Use Glitter

Painted Fingertips | 5 minute nail art: 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.  (more…)

Painted Fingertips | Stamped Rose Nails

Some items in this post were provided for my honest review.

Hi everyone!

Today I have a review of a Born Pretty Store stamping plate to share with you. Today I’m trying out plate BP-73. I picked this plate because I have really been craving florals lately and the plate is all about roses! I love the images and I couldn’t wait to try them. First I tried the roses with some sexy red: (more…)

Cocktail Stamping

Painted Fingertips | Colour blotches and stamping

Hi everyone!

I didn’t know what to call this post because I had so much going on in this nail art look, but since I stamped and I used the Rimmel Cocktail Colours polishes for it, it became cocktail stamping. That actually suits the look because it’s bright, colourful and sparkly… what more could you want? (more…)

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

Painted Fingertips | Heart and Brain Nail art

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. (more…)

Lovers Gradient: HPB Presents Gradients

Painted Fingertips | Love gradient nails

Hi everyone!

Today I am taking part in a Hobby Polish Bloggers linkup. If you’re also a blogger, it’s a great group to be in to discuss nails and blogging. This month’s theme is gradients.

If you haven’t heard of Piggieluv before, you’re going to thank me for this post. If you’re really into nails, though, you probably have! She is one of my favourite nail artists and does amazing freehand and 3D designs. Today’s look was inspired by this post she did. She created a love story in 5 manis and I chose one of the 5 to repoduce. I went with a different coloured gradient, and somehow my couple ended up looking really short, but overall I like it!

Painted Fingertips | Stamped silver nail foils

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! (more…)
