Today I have another post for the group challenge I am doing with the others from Crumpet’s Nail Tarts. Today’s theme is animals. I came across this adorable octopus nail art on One Nail to Rule them All and I just had to create my own version. Painted Fingertips | Cute octopus nail art

#5minutenailart: Distressed nails

Hi everyone!

Before I show you today’s nail art, I wanted to let you know that I’ve joined Snapchat! My snapcode is in the sidebar or you can add me by my name, kerryfingertips. I’m still playing around with it and seeing if I like it, but part of that depends on you, too. Even though I do my nails for me, when it comes to social media, it’s more enjoyable to share in ways that YOU like to see and that you respond to. So go ahead and add me, and let me know what you’d like to see! I’m going to make my Snapchat a fun way to see some different things that are harder to show on other platforms. I’ll show you what I’m busy with as I’m painting my nails, step by step – so you’ll see what goes into it and you’ll see what I’m doing before it appears on the blog. Hopefully I’ll also do some snaps that are more about me so if you have any questions, snap me and let me know what you’d like to see!

Now, on to the nails! It’s time for another 5 minute nail art look. If you haven’t seen one of these before, you can go check out my first #5minutenailart post for an explanation of what it’s all about.

Water Marble Wednesday: Mixed Patterns

Hi everyone!

It’s Water Marble Wednesday! When I was planning this marble, I couldn’t decide if I wanted to do stripes or petals for the marble pattern, so in the end I decided to do both. I really liked how the two patterns looked together, and the brightness of the colours I used. Painted Fingertips | Mixed patterns water marble (more…)
