Rose Needle Drag

Painted Fingertips | Rose needle drag nail art

Hi everyone!

It seems like over the past couple of weeks, winter noticed that it hadn’t been around here all that much and it’s making up for lost time! First we had the icy polar vortex, and now this week we’ve just had one snowstorm after another. It seemed as though barely any snow had fallen for most of this winter, and now we’ve got at least a foot. It looks lovely on the tree branches and the fresh snow is soft, white and sparkly… but there’s always that part of me that’s just waiting for Spring! So, I have some floral nail art to share with you today.

Holo Christmas Water Marble | The Digital Dozen does Holo

Painted Fingertips | Holo Christmas water marble nails

Hi everyone!

It’s day 3 of The Digital Dozen does Holo, and it’s also Water Marble Wednesday! I love it when I’m able to get a water marble out of the Digital Dozen themes. This month, with the broad theme, it wasn’t very difficult to figure out a marble – I just had to pick a few holographic shades that marbled well and looked good together.

Hi everyone!

It’s almost time for another round of Polish Pickup! I feel like I’m still recovering from Polish Con (and I’ll have a post up with lots of pictures from the day soon), but it’s already time to prepare for more Polish Pickup beauties.

The Polish Pickup shop will be open 5-8 October. The theme for the month of October is villains. Moonflower Polish has come up with a stunning blue stamping-friendly polish called The Grand Admiral.

Painted Fingertips | KBShimmer Purple Reign - Polish Con VIP Polish

The items in this post were provided for my honest review.

Hi everyone!

It’s another 2 post day today as I’m trying to get all of the Polish Con exclusive and VIP shades I’ve been sent to swatch up in time. Today I have 3 shades from KBShimmer to share – 2 exclusives and one VIP. All of them are Minnesota themed with fun names and inspirations. Did you know that Christy grew up in Minnesota? I love that she was able to take from her own experiences living here to create these beautiful polishes. Let’s start off with the VIP shade, Purple Reign. (more…)

Art Deco Pineapple | The Digital Dozen Does Tropical

Painted Fingertips | Art Deco Pineapple nails - The Digital Dozen does Tropical

Hi everyone!

It’s day 2 of the Digital Dozen does Tropical! I’m really enjoying this theme. I’ve managed to get all 5 looks for the week done and I like all of them, I hope you will too! I already shared a tropical floral look yesterday, and today I’ve got some pineapple nails. I was thinking about different fruits that I could use for the tropical theme and my mind got stuck on pineapples. When I think of pineapple nail art, I always think of Sarah from 25Sweetpeas who is a big fan of pineapples and has done several fun nail arts featuring them. Of course I turned to a few of her past looks for inspiration! (more…)

KBShimmer Spiral Nail Vinyls | The Digital Dozen Does Indie Love

Painted Fingertips | KBShimmer Spiral Nail Vinyls - The Digital Dozen does Indie Love

Hi everyone!

It’s day 4 of The Digital Dozen does Indie Love! This week is flying by. So far this week, I’ve shared some Polish ‘M floral stamping decals, a Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer drip marble, and a Vapid water marble. I was trying to think about what other techniques I could incorporate this week when I remembered some spiral nail vinyls I recently got from KBShimmer. I decided to give them a try along with 2 KBShimmer polishes. (more…)

Moonflower Polish | Vampy Cremes Stamping

Painted Fingertips | Moonflower Polish Vampy Cremes stamping - Dark Green

Some items in this post were provided for honest review.

Hi everyone!

I am so excited to share this post with you! A short while ago, Nadia of Moonflower Polish approached me and asked me if I could showcase a few of her polishes on my blog. Of course I leapt at the opportunity! Most polishes made by Moonflower are intended as stamping polish, so of course they are perfect for me with all of the nail art I do. In fact, just the other day I was thinking that I needed something fresh in my stamping repertoire and purchased a few new plates. These stamping polishes were perfect to add to that and I think you will like them too!

Today I have 5 brand new Moonflower polishes to share, the Vampy Cremes. These are releasing tomorrow morning, 23 February, at 9 am EST on the Moonflower Polish site. They are all dark creme bases with complementary colour shifting shimmers. They will be priced at $8 for a 15 ml bottle, or $38 for the set of 5. They are also available in mini bottles at $5 each or $23 for the set of 5. Do note that since these are highly pigmented, they may cause staining of nails, skin, or stampers; however I personally have not had any issues with staining while using these as stamping polishes.

I have tested each of these stamping polishes over both a light and a dark colour, so there are no less than 10 stamped looks to follow! It is a long, picture-heavy post, but worth it. Keep on scrolling to see how amazing each of the stamping polishes looks! (more…)

The Digital Dozen Does Decades: 60s Water Marble

Painted Fingertips | The Digital Dozen Does Decades - 60s

Hi everyone!

This month’s Digital Dozen theme is Decades. I just got back from my lovely California vacation, so I haven’t had all that much time to think up ideas for the theme, but I’ll do the best I can! I originally had a 30s idea to start off with, but I didn’t like how it turned out so I have decided to start off with the bright and colourful 60s instead! And what better way to use the bright 60s colours than in a water marble? (more…)
