Wrapping Paper – The Digital Dozen Does Paper

This post contains affiliate links.

Hi everyone!

It’s day 2 of the Digital Dozen does paper and today I’ve done some wrapping paper nails. Wrapping paper seemed like the perfect way to interpret this theme – fun, colourful and easy to turn into nail art.

Hi everyone!

Today I have a review of some Born Pretty Store nail foils. Since I bought some foil glue a couple of months ago, I decided it was time to give patterned foil another go and see if I could make it work for me.Painted Fingertips | Silver foil from Born Pretty Store (more…)

The Digital Dozen Does Art: Lichtenstein-style Pop Art

Hi everyone!

It’s day 3 of the Digital Dozen does art! I’ve really enjoyed this theme so far and I loved both of the nail art looks I’ve already shared with you. In case you missed them, I recreated Munch’s The Scream and a gorgeous vibrant tree artwork by Megan Duncanson.

Today I’ve moved away from freehand art for the first time this week (don’t worry, there’s more freehand coming later in the week!) to create a pop art look. Painted Fingertips | The Digital Dozen Does Art - lichtenstein-style pop art (more…)

31DC2016 Day 4: Green with gold freehand

Hi everyone!

It’s day 4 of the 31 Day Challenge and today’s theme is green. It just so happens that today I used the same gold acrylic paint that I used just 2 days ago for orange. That was unplanned, I was doing many of these looks in advance and hadn’t realised I ended up using it twice to close together until later.

31DC2016 Day 2: Orange with Freehand Gold

Hi everyone!

It’s day 2 of the 31 Day challenge and as I mentioned yesterday, I don’t love today’s nail art. I remember having a tube of gold acrylic paint among my other paints as a teenager, and noticed that it had a different texture than the others. That was confirmed when I recently bought some gold acrylic paint for nail art. It may be partly because I bought cheap craft paint instead of artist’s paint, but it definitely has a runnier texture compared to my other acrylics and I had a hard time getting a fine line like I’m used to – especially if I added more paint, wanting to darken a line – it’d just spread out! Oh, well. It’s still an orange freehand nail art! Painted Fingertips | Orange with freehand gold for the #31DC2016

Swatches: Darling Diva Polish – Watch Your Pack Collection

The polishes used in this post were provided for my honest review.

Hi everyone!

Today I am excited to share a new collection from Darling Diva Polish with you. This 8-piece collection, called Watch Your Pack, is inspired by the TV show Teen Wolf. I haven’t watched Teen Wolf yet, but considering previous DDP collections include Deadpool, which I liked, and Star Wars, which I love, maybe I should! This collection is releasing this Friday, 22 July, and all polishes are one-pour only, which means when they’re sold out, they’re gone forever. I absolutely love this collection so I’ve taken a lot of pictures (picture heavy post!) and I recently got a macro lens for my phone – if you follow me on Snapchat you may have already seen macros of some of these – so for the first time on Painted Fingertips, I’ll be including macro shots of all polishes as well. Enjoy!

Peacock Recycled Nail Art

Hi everyone!

A while ago I showed you a #5minutenailart that I had done using the cling wrap technique. At the time I thought that this was the perfect base for some stamping, and so I decided to turn it into some pretty peacock-themed nail art. Painted Fingertips | Peacock Stamping
