The Digital Dozen Does Decades – 2010s textured polish

Hi everyone!

It’s the fifth and final day of the Digital Dozen Does Decades! You might be wondering how I could do a nail art to represent a decade we are still in – well, today I am continuing yesterday’s nail art history lesson with the introduction of textured polish.

#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.

A Real Snowy Day

Hi everyone!

Over the past few weeks I’ve already posted snowman nails, snow-covered trees, and snowflake nails, and here I am with yet another snowy look! Why all the snow nails? Well, first of all, it’s the first time I’m actually having winter at this time of the year, and secondly, it’s my first time experiencing snow! Each snowfall has been beautiful to me and it’s only natural to want to put that on my nails. Painted Fingertips | A real snowy day
