Painted Fingertips | Polish Con VIP shade - Aurora Mani-apolis

Hi everyone!

I have some more Polish Con swatches for you. In today’s post I have the VIP and exclusive shades from Aurora Nail Lacquer. This was my first experience with Aurora and after trying these polishes, I am keen to see what else they have to offer! These two shades also go really well together so if you get the VIP shade in your bag, you’ll want to check out the exclusive! Let’s start off with the VIP shade. (more…)

Hi everyone!

Have you realised by now that I like dragons? Your first hint was over 3 years ago when I posted freehand dragon nail art for the first time. After that, it was a while before I returned to my favourite mythical creature, but I eventually got back to it with some Game of Thrones inspired dragons. Since then, I’ve also done not one, but two dragon eye looks, and another freehand dragon.

Today, I’ve done some dragon scale-esque glitter placement. (more…)

The Digital Dozen Does All that Glitters: Gold Glitter Placement

Painted Fingertips | Gold and orange glitter placement - the Digital Dozen does All that Glitters

Hi everyone!

It’s the final day of The Digital Dozen does All that Glitters – can you believe it? I’ve really enjoyed this theme – it allowed me to go a little crazy with over-the-top glittery looks. So far this week, I shared some glittering crystals, a glittery drip marble, glitter-dipped fingers, and a fun glitter gradient. Today I’ve gone for all-over glitter again with some glitter placement! I knew I had to do this for one day ever since we decided on this theme, and I decided to save it for the very end. (more…)

The Digital Dozen Does All that Glitters: Glitter-Dipped Hands

Hi everyone!

How about dialling up the glitter a little bit for today’s edition of The Digital Dozen does all that glitters? In fact, I’m going to be bold here and say that this is probably the most glittery look of the whole week, from all of the Digital Dozen members put together. As I’m writing this post up, it’s Sunday evening, and nobody has posted for this theme yet… so I almost hope someone proves me wrong. I doubt it, though! I’m honestly not sure what it would take to get more glitter into a nail art look than this: (more…)

Hi everyone!

It’s Digital Dozen week! This week’s theme is ‘All that Glitters’ and I decided to start the week off with both glittery polish and glittering crystals in my nail art. I’ve used some glittery polishes for stamping decals before, and they worked really well. I knew I had to do some glittery decals for this theme! I flipped through my stamping plates, and a pretty crystal image caught my eye – crystals glitter! (more…)

Hi everyone!

It’s almost Christmas! It might already be Christmas where you are – Merry Christmas to you, if so! I didn’t get much chance to do Christmassy nail art this year, but I have a look today which is quick, easy, and perfect for the time of year. (more…)

The Digital Dozen Does My Home – Jacarandas in Pretoria

Painted Fingertips | Jacaranda flower nail art - macro

Hi everyone!

As I mentioned in my snowy Minnesota home post earlier this week, I’m at an out-of-town conference this week so I wasn’t able to do all 5 Digital Dozen manicures for the ‘my home’ theme. This is the second one I was able to finish, and it’s for my childhood home. I grew up and spent most of the first 2 decades of my life in Pretoria, South Africa. Pretoria is known as the Jacaranda City for its many streets lined with Jacaranda trees. (more…)
