The Digital Dozen – Birthday Galaxies

Hi everyone!

Today the Digital Dozen are celebrating our January birthdays with some gorgeous galaxies! This month it is Shelly’s birthday from Sassy Shelly – go take a look at her nails if you haven’t already, she does some amazing nail art! She picked out a gorgeous image that just screamed galaxy nails.

Any of you that have been following Painted Fingertips for a long time may recall that galaxy nails haven’t always been my best friend. From my very first attempt more than 3 years ago (don’t click that link, they’re awful!) to glow in the dark galaxies to galaxies with star decals to aliens or eyeshadow galaxies, my galaxies just never work. The only times I’ve really liked any galaxy-themed nails I’ve done was when I steered away from the traditional look and did some fun freehand – like my star wars nails or my very busy spaceship nails. So, I was pretty wary of this theme, but I think I’ve done some galaxies that I’m at least okay with, even if it will still never be my favourite technique.

The Neverending Pile Challenge: Glow in the Dark

Hi everyone!

Today’s prompt for the Neverending Pile Challenge hosted by Gnarly Gnails is glow in the dark. I only have one glow in the dark polish and luckily, it’s untried! galaxy-nail-art-ILNP-i-love-nail-polish-absolute-zero-sinful-colors-cinderella-essence-galactic-glam-nail-addict-by-tip-top-moonshine-essence-over-the-rainbow-essence-holo-shimmer-pixie-dust-ralo-cosmetics-glow-in-the-dark-204 (more…)

Nail Art A-Go-Go Challenge Day 10: Night Sky

Hi everyone!

It’s day 10 of the challenge and today’s theme is night sky. I think I have my third win in a row here! I do apologise for the fluff on my pinkie though – I didn’t notice it until it was too late.

31 Day Challenge – Day 19: Galaxy Nails

Hi guys!

Yesterday I promised you galaxy nails with each nail a different colour. The nails were done, photographs were taken, and then… I forgot to copy the photos from my camera to my computer! However, I MUST show you some galaxy nails today, and I realised there was one thing I could resort to… I have some pictures of my first ever galaxy nails, from pre-blog days. They weren’t supposed to ever see the light of day, because they are a MESS. My cuticles are covered with polish, my attempt at glittery stars was a flop… but I guess they were ok for a first ever try. So today I will show you just 2 photos of my galaxy fail. The good news is I will still be able to show you the much improved galaxy nails 2.0 once this challenge is over! So, here we go:
