Cute Sweeties Nail Art

Painted Fingertips | Cute sweets nail art

Hi everyone!

A few weeks ago I saw this bright cute sweets nail art on the Dalai Lama’s Nails and I couldn’t wait to try it on my own nails. I went with a completely different colour scheme, but kept it bright, colourful, and fun and I love the outcome! (more…)

Water Marble Wednesday: Freehand Lettering

Painted Fingertips | Freehand lettering over a water marble

Hi everyone!

First up, a warm welcome to my new blog! I’ve revamped the whole look and made it easier for you to navigate, comment and pin images – I hope you will enjoy it!

It’s Water Marble Wednesday and today I have combined a water marble with freehand art. Some days a marble just doesn’t go the way you wanted it to. It could be that the polishes don’t spread properly (in which case you should just choose different polishes!) or it could be that the colours just don’t look the way you were hoping they would. That’s what happened to me this time. I did a neon water marble a couple of weeks ago which worked amazingly and another one using only some of the colours which I loved as well. This time I tried to use a different selection of neons and it just didn’t work out. The marble constantly looked muddy and the colours were really pale. (more…)

Cinderella’s Delicate Dress

Painted Fingertips | Cinderella's Delicate Dress Nail Art

Hi everyone!

A while ago I was itching for some very delicate nails and so I decided to combine a lovely, delicate colour with some freehand art. My idea was to combine Sinful Colors Glass Pink with some stamping from an Essence stamping plate to create a lovely soft look which I also thought would be appropriate for a bridal look. Unfortunately, the stamping plate just wouldn’t play. I’m not sure what went wrong as I got my first two nails stamped ok but after that I just couldn’t get it right! No matter what I did I couldn’t get the image to transfer properly until I eventually gave up in frustration. Not for long though! The next day I decided to show that plate who was boss by creating the exact same look freehand! 🙂 (more…)

12 Days of Christmas: Freestyle

Hi everyone!

It’s the final day of the 12 Days of Christmas Challenge from Challenge Your Nail Art! I’m so glad to have made it to the end. Today’s nail art is inspired by some recent Christmas decorations nail art from Will Paint Nails For Food. I really love Meghan’s blog and her nails always look beautifully artistic with perfect line work. I couldn’t get mine looking as perfect as hers but I liked my hanging Christmas decorations nonetheless! (more…)

12 Days of Christmas: Snowmen

Hi everyone!

Today I have another post for the 12 Days of Christmas Challenge hosted by the Facebook Group Challenge Your Nail Art. Today’s theme is snowmen – another wintery one even though it’s summer here! I couldn’t complain though because once I saw a lovely snowman scene by Instagram nail artist @MelissaRose0410 I couldn’t wait to try something similar! (more…)

Freehand Chevrons

Hi everyone!

I recently saw this freehand chevron post on Chalkboard Nails and today I decided to recreate it. I have been seeing chevrons all over lately but most of them are smaller or finer ones created with vinyls or using stamping. I really liked the combination of broader lines with the finer chevrons on Sarah’s nail art. I loved her colour combination as well so I went with something similar: (more…)

Spring Time Nails!

Hi everyone!

I have been loving the warmer weather lately so I decided to celebrate the change of season with some nail art! Coewless did this spring nail art months ago – back when it was autumn here – and I was just waiting for my chance to recreate it! (more…)
