31DC2016 Day 19: Freehand Galaxy Nails

Hi everyone!

Today’s theme in the 31 Day Challenge is galaxies. If you’ve followed Painted Fingertips for a long time, you might remember me complaining about this theme in previous years. I’ve always seen others mentioning how easy galaxy nails are to do, how ‘anyone can do this nail art’, and yet whenever I tried it, it just looked a mess. Well, not this year! This year I’ve moved away from the traditional galaxy look and done some detailed, probably far more difficult, cute freehand instead 🙂Painted Fingertips | Freehand galaxy nails for the #31DC2016

Hi everyone!

It has been ages since I’ve pulled out my striping tape so I decided it was finally time again. I was inspired by this post by Nail Polish Wars and I decided to try out something similar. Painted Fingertips | Striping Tape - negative space and rainbows (more…)

Review: Born Pretty Store Spider Studs

Some items in this post have been provided for review.

Hi everyone!

Today I have some nail art to share with you using pearl and rhinestone spider studs from the Born Pretty Store. Several months ago as I was planning my Halloween nail art, I really wanted to do something with spider studs but I didn’t have any. I know it’s nowhere close to Halloween now, but I was still glad to get a chance to use some spider studs for one of the simple ideas I had. Painted Fingertips | Spiderweb nail art (more…)

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…)

Swatches: LA Girl 3D Holographic

Hi everyone!

I am really excited to share these polishes with you. I have wanted them for a long time and I was finally lucky enough to get 3 of the shades as a late Christmas gift from my niece. When I first started getting into nail polish about 2 years ago, I started following a lot of nail blogs. At this time the boom of textured polishes was just beginning and I was fascinated by the pictures I saw – I had never seen a textured polish before. I was desperate to get my hands on one but just couldn’t seem to find any in-store – either we didn’t have the brands here, or only core lines or older polishes were stocked. One day I saw the LA Girl 3D Holographic polishes and thought because they said ‘3D’ that I might have found some textures. Once I saw they weren’t textures I was disappointed and put them back – I was on a mission and missed these beauties. Before long I regretted it because by the time I went back, they were sold out! I was excited when they were brought back recently but I couldn’t buy them myself – luckily my family listened to my strong hinting and I got the 3 I wanted most!

Review and Nail Art: Loki’s Nail Vinyls

Hi everyone!

By now you might have seen some nail art looks done using nail vinyls. They have become pretty popular for nail art over the past few months as a way to create patterns and do fun and easy nail art. When Loki’s Nail Vinyls asked me to review their product, I jumped at the chance. There are a few different nail vinyl brands out there already, but these are the first I have had the opportunity to try. Painted Fingertips | Loki's Nail Vinyls (more…)
