The Digital Dozen Does Get to Know Me: 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 🙂

#5minutenailart – 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! Painted Fingertips | #5minutenailart - red with blue hearts

Guest Post: For the Love of Nail Art

Hi everyone!

I am excited to share another guest post with you today. This one is from Siobhan of For the Love of Nail Art. Siobhan is a good ‘blogging friend’ of mine and we enjoy sharing our love of nail art (and pictures of our adorable cats!) Today she has come up with something perfect for a cute Valentine’s Day nail look!


Kerry asked me some time ago to guest for her and I said yes, all amped and excited… Then I found nothing good that I wanted to do for her, then work started and other engagements so I didn’t get chance to look again. I found this manicure a few days ago and when I saw it, I KNEW it was what I wanted to do for her.

It is inspired by @zunonails  and her manicure is beyond perfect to me! Here’s my recreation:Painted Fingertips | For the Love of Nail Art - Valentine's Guest Post

HPB Presents: Valentines Nails

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: Painted Fingertips | Roses and hearts Valentine's nail art (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: Painted Fingertips | Negative space hearts nail art (more…)

The Neverending Pile Challenge: Free Polish

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. saran-wrap-grazia-caviar-night-out-kit-red-gold-digger-tip-top-gold-heart-water-decals (more…)

Neverending Pile Challenge: Jellies

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!pond-nails-hearts-essence-hello-spring!-purple-sugar-nail-candies-always-in-my-mint-sugar-pie-honey-bunch-sinful-colors-opal-glitter (more…)

Prize winnings and my first water decals!

Hi everyone!

Today I am excited to show you the prize I won a few weeks ago from Karine’s Vernis Club. I’d like to thank her for the great prize, I was so excited to go pick it up the the post office and play with my goodies 😀 I was lucky enough to win a $40 voucher to spend at KKCenterHK. There were a few restrictions as to what I could buy but luckily I could choose between a whole host of nail art items!
