The Digital Dozen Does Art: The Scream

Hi everyone!

It’s Digital Dozen week! This week’s theme is art and it’s actually the second time that this is a Digital Dozen theme. The first time was long before I was a member of the group, though. I was pretty excited about this theme, even though it’s a tough one! I knew that it would challenge me to create some really cool nail art, and it definitely has. I’ve done three of the looks for this week so far and I really like all of them. We’ll see how it goes with the last two!

For the first art look for this week, I decided to go with a very famous painting: The Scream by Edvard Munch. Painted Fingertips | The Digital Dozen Does Art - The Scream by Edvard Munch (more…)

The Digital Dozen Does December: Christmas Print

Hi everyone!

It’s the last day of the Digital Dozen December week! So far this week I’ve shared beach nails, snow nails, birthday nails, and a Christmas tree design. Christmas has always been my favourite holiday, and it’s a big part of December to me, so today I have another Christmas design to share with you. Painted Fingertips | Christmas print

The Digital Dozen Does Colour Contrast Day 3: Red and Green

Hi everyone!

It’s day 3 of the Digital Dozen does colour contrasts week and today I’m going with the third ‘obvious’ contrast – red and green! I’ve already shown you my blue and orange and purple and neon yellow nails. We actually had a bit of a discussion in the Digital Dozen group about how to avoid making red and green look too Christmassy, I think I managed it though 🙂Painted Fingertips | The Digital Dozen Does Contrast - green with red flowers

HPB Presents: Halloween Pumpkin Nail Art

Hi everyone!

I just love the Halloween nail art I’ve created today – I hope you’ll enjoy it too! I’ve done this one for this month’s Hobby Polish Bloggers group nail art Halloween theme. Last October was our first Halloween in the US and carving a pumpkin was one of my favourite parts. It looked so cool with a candle burning inside! These pumpkins haven’t been carved yet, though.

31DC2016 Day 31: Honour Nails You Love – Landscape Nails

Hi everyone!

It’s the final day of the 31 Day Challenge! Can you believe it? I’m so glad that I’ve made it through this year’s challenge, and congratulations to everyone else who took part! The final theme is ‘honour nails you love’. I really enjoy this theme, because I love doing nail art inspired by others. There are so many fantastic nail bloggers, and when I see nails I love it’s hard not to recreate them. I often go to others when I’m in need of inspiration, too. If I can’t decide what to do on my nails, I’ll head to my Pinterest boards or catch up on my blog reading and see if it gives me any ideas. One of the nail artists who inspires me the most is Narmai of Piggieluv. She has incredible freehand nail art skills and comes up with the best, and often the craziest (in a good way!) ideas. So, it was only natural that I recreate one of her nail art looks for the final day of the challenge and I decided to go with some freehand landscape nails.
