Strings of Hearts

Painted Fingertips | Black and red strings of hearts

Hi everyone!

I have a simple but lovely look to share with you today. I don’t use nail decals or stencils very often, but I used some here together with two beautiful polishes from Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer to create a look that would be perfect for Christmas, Valentine’s Day, or really any time.

Black & White Dotticure | The Digital Dozen Does Inspired by Each Other

Painted Fingertips | Black and white dots inspired by Druid Nails

Hi everyone!

I’m running a bit behind with this week’s Digital Dozen posts – I’m going to a conference next week and I’ve had a really busy few days preparing for it. The good news is I think I’m ready for the conference, so now I’m going to be playing catchup with some nail art posts for you. For my second ‘inspired by each other’ look, I was inspired by this black and white dotticure done by Druid Nails. Simple but so striking and pretty! (more…)

The Digital Dozen Does Get to Know Me: Gizmo-cat Water Marble!

Painted Fingertips | Gizmo-cat water marble

Hi everyone!

It’s time for another installment of ‘get to know me’! If you were extra observant, you may have noticed that I didn’t post yesterday. As it happens, I’m having a particularly busy week in my ‘day job’ and I haven’t been able to finish all 5 looks for this week’s theme. I’ll probably be skipping another day as well. Let’s just call it a part of getting to know me!

I’ve dedicated today’s nail art to my beloved cat, Gizmo. Gizmo came into our lives a little over 2 years ago when my husband found him crying and hiding under my car, scared and hungry. He was still a baby, only about 2 and a half months old. Luckily, all he needed was some food and some love. He purred his way into our hearts and has stayed there ever since 🙂 (more…)

#5minutenailart – Blue Hearts

Painted Fingertips | #5minutenailart - red with blue hearts

Hi everyone!

It’s time for another #5minutenailart! Are you excited? If you don’t know what this is all about, go take a look at my first post in the series, but the basic premise is that I start with a base of a single colour, your standard manicure, then I have just 5 minutes to turn it into some fun nail art!  (more…)

HPB Presents: Valentines Nails

Painted Fingertips | Roses and hearts Valentine's nail art

Hi everyone!

If you’re a follower of my blog, you’ve probably heard about the Facebook Group Hobby Polish Bloggers by now. HPB is a great support group for nail and nail polish bloggers. It’s not about sharing nail pictures, but rather is about discussing, asking for help, and being part of a blogging community. If you’re a blogger too, go check out the group! The past few months, we have been doing a monthly themed linkup for group members. This month’s theme is Valentine’s. Here’s what I came up with: (more…)

Negative Space Hearts

Hi everyone!

Today’s nail art was inspired by a recent Instagram post by @cdbnails143. I was scrolling down my feed when I saw some absolutely beautiful negative space nail art she had done. A lot of negative space art doesn’t appeal to me, but I really liked this one! I have only tried negative space art once before. CDBnails’ original manicure was done with stamping, but since I didn’t have the same stamping plate, I decided to try a freehand version: (more…)

Hi everyone!

Today’s theme in the Neverending Pile Challenge is a polish you got for free. Last Christmas, my sister bought me a set from Grazia containing 2 polishes and 2 sets of coloured microbeads/’caviar’. I used one of the polishes long ago, but the other remained untried. (more…)

Hi everyone!

Today’s theme for the neverending pile challenge is jelly polishes. I don’t have a lot of jellies but it just so happens that I picked two up recently. I didn’t even realise they were jellies at the time but now I got to put them to good use! (more…)
