Paper Planes – The Digital Dozen Does Paper

Hi everyone!

It’s day 4 of the Digital Dozen does paper! Can you believe the week is almost over already? I really feel as though this week as flown by. I have a more detailed freehand look today, inspired by paper planes! This is my recreation of a recent nail art posted by Narmai of Piggieluv, with my own spin of course. Narmai has the most amazing nail art ideas, but it is always a little intimidating trying to recreate them because she is so talented! Even though I think her original look was better, I’m pretty happy with my version.

Hi everyone!

It’s a gorgeous autumn here in Minnesota – the trees are all changing beautifully and it isn’t TOO cold yet. Leaves of every colour are beginning to fall and that’s the part of the autumn I’ve decided to recreate on my nails. Painted Fingertips | Autumn leaf nail art

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

I Love You with all of my ME! – 40 Great Nail Art Ideas for Love

Hi everyone!

Today I have another post from the Crumpet’s Nail Tarts challenge and today’s theme is love. I found inspiration from The Awkward Yeti. The Awkward Yeti writes a comic focussing on the interactions between Heart and Brain – for us nail polish addicts, think Heart wants to buy ALL the new collections but Brain knows you need money for food 😉

I searched through the comics looking for one I could turn into nail art – most had too much text but eventually I found this one which was not only adorable, but was also perfect for today’s theme. Painted Fingertips | Heart and Brain Nail art
