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

Painted Fingertips | The Digital Dozen Does Contrast - green with red flowers

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 🙂 (more…)

Swatches and a GIVEAWAY! Supermoon Lacquer The Chosen Collection

Painted Fingertips | Swatch: The Howling Boutique's Supermoon Lacquer - Fight Your Demons

The polishes used in this post include both press samples and items purchased at a blogger discount.

Hi everyone!

I am so excited to share today’s post with you. Not only am I going to share seven beautiful new polishes from The Howling Boutique’s Supermoon Lacquer with you, but there is also a giveaway at the end! You will be able to win your choice of two of these beauties – this post is picture heavy but be sure to make it through to the end for the giveaway!

Supermoon Lacquer is a relatively new brand, but one that has already caught my eye – you may have noticed me using one of their polishes as the base for my water drops nail art a couple of weeks ago. Of course, I jumped at the chance to swatch their new, gloriously darker collection, filled with shimmer and shift. This is Supermoon’s third full collection and it may just be their best yet!

Hi everyone!

It’s a gorgeous autumn here in Minnesota – the trees are all changing beautifully and it isn’t TOO cold yet. Leaves of every colour are beginning to fall and that’s the part of the autumn I’ve decided to recreate on my nails. (more…)

31DC2016 Day 30: Water Drops Inspired by a Tutorial

Painted Fingertips | Water drop nails inspired by a Starrynail tutorial

Hi everyone!

It’s the second last day of the 31 Day Challenge! I’ve actually already done my nails for tomorrow so I’m officially finished and these were the last nails I did. Today’s theme is inspired by a tutorial. You probably know by now that I enjoy recreating other nail art looks I love, but not everyone does tutorials. I had to search a little to find a tutorial that fit my freehand criteria for the challenge. In the end I picked a water drops tutorial by Starrynail. This is the second look by her I’ve recreated this challenge (the first was my Game of Thrones look) – she just does such amazing freehand art! (more…)

Swatches: Darling Diva Polish – Watch Your Pack Collection

Painted Fingertips | Darling Diva Polish - Tainted (Watch your Pack)

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! (more…)

Peacock Recycled Nail Art

Painted Fingertips | Peacock Stamping

This post contains affiliate links. 

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.  (more…)

Swatches: Sinful Colors Kameleon and Kleopatra

Painted Fingertips | Swatch - Sinful Colors Kameleon

Hi everyone!

By now you might have heard of the huge Sinful Colors collection that was brought out in collaboration with Kylie Jenner. I know there are a lot of mixed opinions about Kylie and personally I don’t know much about her. For me, as usual, it’s all about the polish! Once I saw that there were a few duochromes available, I had to try a couple out. I love my duochromes and you can’t beat the price. Sinful Colors definitely impresses me by being one of the only mainstream brands to really try different finishes and try to be a bit more unique with their polishes. So, let’s take a look at the two I decided to try!  (more…)
