Moonflower Polish | Vampy Cremes Swatches

Painted Fingertips | Moonflower Polish Plum Swatch

Some items in this post were provided for honest review.

Hi everyone!

Remember the amazing vampy stamping polishes from Moonflower I showed you the other day? Well, it turns out they can do more than just stamp. Today I have swatches of the 5 vampy cremes on their own as regular polish and they are amazing like this too! Before I even start showing you the pictures, I need to let you know that I used only ONE COAT for each of these 5 polishes. They are incredibly pigmented and while force of habit – plus wanting to make sure I didn’t miss any spots due to poor application skills – generally makes me want to use 2 coats for any polish, these really, truly only need one. Let’s take a look at these beauties! (more…)

Hi everyone!

I have some simple but lovely silver stamping to share with you today! I did this nail art a couple of months ago, back when I shared swatches of Supermoon Lacquer The Hound of Hades. I often like to add some stamping to a swatch, it’s a quick and easy way to create some pretty nail art! (more…)

Forest Green Drip Marble

Painted Fingertips | Forest green drip marble

Hi everyone!

You all enjoyed last week’s dark and mysterious drip marble so much – and I had so much fun creating it – that I decided to do another drip marble for today! Today, I decided to go with just different shades of green. I wanted to bring across a forest vibe. (more…)

Polish ‘M: Olive You From My Head Tomatoes

Painted Fingertips | Swatch - Polish 'M Olive You From My Head Tomatoes!

Hi everyone!

I have a swatch of a gorgeous polish to share with you today. I recently discovered a Facebook group especially for Olive polish and just in time! Not long after I joined, I found out Polish ‘M was about to do a group custom. Polish ‘M has quickly become one of my favourite indie brands, and once I started seeing swatches in the group, I knew I had to get my hands on this one. Now there is a very important reason why I am posting this on a Saturday when I don’t usually do weekend posts: this beauty is only available until Monday, 24 April! There is a pre-order for this polish in the olive polish group which closes on Monday. Since I was one of the first to order this polish on the day the pre-order opened, I was lucky enough to get a bottle from the batch that had already been made for official swatches, so I’ve managed to get it swatched in time to share with you while it is still available. As far as I know, it will never be available again, so order it while you can! (more…)

Water Marble Wednesday: Red, Blue and Silver

Painted Fingertips | Polish 'M red, blue and silver water marble - macro

Hi everyone!

It’s Water Marble Wednesday! I have really been enjoying getting back into water marbling and I’m glad I decided to bring the series back for a while. I used some shades from the Polish ‘M Christmas collection for last week’s marble, and I decided to make use of the same collection this week. They really do marble beautifully and I’m sure I’ll be reaching for them again and again! There are so many different colour combinations to be used from the collection, too – it’s a 10-piece collection so think of how many different combinations I can come up with 🙂 (more…)
