Cherry Blossoms | The Digital Dozen Does Inspired by Each Other

Painted Fingertips | Cherry Tree Gradient inspired by The Polished Koi

Hi everyone!

I’m back with a final very late addition to the Digital Dozen’s Inspired by Each Other theme. For today’s look, I was inspired by this pretty cherry blossom look by The Polished Koi. The blue gradient she did really drew me in, and the cherry blossoms finished me off! (more…)

The Digital Dozen Does Mythical Creatures | Fairy Nails

Painted Fingertips | Fairy nails - the Digital Dozen does Mythical Creatures

Hi everyone!

It’s day 2 of the Digital Dozen does Mythical Creatures! I am really loving what the other DD members have come up with so far – I’m looking forward to the rest of this week’s nail art! Yesterday, I started the theme off with some freehand dragon nail art. Today, I’ve gone for a far more delicate mythical creature – the fairy. (more…)

Painted Fingertips | Star Trek Nail Art - macro

Hi everyone!

It’s Digital Dozen week! This week’s theme is Futuristic and I am so excited for it! I think this might be the first time I have actually finished all five looks ahead of time – I just had so many fun ideas for this theme! For the first one, I have done some nail art inspired by one of my favourite series – Star Trek. (more…)

Hi everyone!

It has been so hot and humid the past couple of days here – something I never thought I’d be saying about Minnesota before I moved here! It looks like it might rain today so I’m hoping it’ll cool down just a little.

Today I have a review of another Born Pretty Store stamping plate, plate BP-L052, to share with you. Before I start showing you any of the nail art (and let me tell you right now that both looks I did are pretty great and you should at least look at this whole post!), a note about the plate itself. When I received this plate, several of the images were different than those shown on the site. Here is my photograph of the plate (excuse the reflections): (more…)

Hi everyone!

Can you believe it’s Monday already? That weekend went by in the blink of an eye! At least I have some fun nail art to share with you today. Today I am reviewing another Born Pretty Store stamping plate, plate BP-L049. I have actually already shared a manicure using one of the images from this plate, in my review of the pearl white stamping polish. Nothing on this plate was quite calling out to me to be used for decals or leadlighting, so instead I have two regular stamped looks to share with you today; I tried to be creative with the base and stamping colours instead.

Roses and Peacock Feathers: BPS plate 01

Hi everyone!

I have a review of another Born Pretty Store stamping plate to bring you today – this time with roses and peacock feathers! As I mentioned in the previous posts I did about these plates, I got them in a set of 5 as they are more economical that way, but I still decided to show you each one individually so you could see more pretty nail art 🙂 Today I’m showing you the fifth and final plate from the set. If you missed the first four, I’ll link them here for you – there was a gemstone plate, lacy umbrella plate, dreamcatcher plate, and a floral plate. Now, on to today’s two looks starting off with some pretty peacock feathers. (more…)

The Digital Dozen Does Vampy: Roses over a Gradient

Painted Fingertips | Gradient and roses for the Digital Dozen Vampy week

Hi everyone!

Wow, I can’t believe it’s been a full week since I’ve posted! I intended to post more last week but I’ve been having a particularly crazy time with work, and after the 31 Day Challenge, I just didn’t have a post ready to go. Good news though – I’ll be posting every day this week! And not just any posts, Digital Dozen posts! That’s right, I’m now a member of the Digital Dozen nail art group! If you follow a lot of nail art blogs, you’ve probably heard of the group already. If not, the Digital Dozen is a group of nail bloggers who choose a theme each month and then post 5 nail art looks for the theme during one week, Monday to Friday. The group has been around for 4 years already, with membership changing over time, and I’ve always looked up to the members as fantastic nail artists. I am really excited that I have the opportunity to be in this group now! I think it’ll be a lot of fun and hopefully I’ll create some great nail art to share with you all.

This month’s theme, for my first month with the Digital Dozen, is vampy. (more…)
