Neon Night Sky | The Digital Dozen Does Look Up

Painted Fingertips | Neon starry stamping - The Digital Dozen does Look Up

Hi everyone!

It’s time for another Digital Dozen week! I got back just in time to take part in this one – I’ve spent the past 3 weeks on an epic road trip through the American desert Southwest! I had a great time, but it’s good to be home.

I’m doing my best to put together posts for this week, especially since I’ve missed the past couple of Digital Dozen themes. I realised halfway through my trip that DD week was right after I got back, so I searched through the handful of posts I had in drafts, and thankfully found one that could do for the first day of the theme. This month’s theme is ‘look up’ and we are supposed to look up and find inspiration in the first thing we see! I’m not sure how practical that is, or you might be seeing a lot of white ceiling-inspired looks – but I’ve at least been thinking about and observing the things I see when I look up.

Painted Fingertips | Moonflower Polish October PPU - The Grand Admiral

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.

Sheep Nails | The Digital Dozen Does White

Painted Fingertips | Sheep Nail Art - The Digital Dozen does White

Hi everyone!

It’s Digital Dozen week! This week’s theme is white. At first I didn’t like this theme at all – I was thinking that I’d have to do predominantly white, bridal-looking manicures all week. There’s nothing inherently wrong with that, but those types of looks just aren’t my usual style. Even for my own wedding, I wore turquoise nail polish! That made me dread the idea of an all-white week. That was until I had the idea to do nail art based on things that are white, rather than just making white the dominant colour. This meant that I could use plenty of colours, and I had fun coming up with things that are white! (more…)

Silver Flowers

Painted Fingertips | Silver flower nail stamping

Hi everyone!

The week before last was the Digital Dozen’s ‘In My Garden’ week and I only managed to get 4 out of 5 nail art looks posted. I had really hoped to get the fifth one up in time, but just didn’t quite make it! I actually had these nails done and photographed, but wasn’t able to get the photos edited and the post ready in time to share it with you – so I am sharing it now instead. I did have a fun reason for not getting it done – my husband and I took a short mini-holiday to visit NYC for a few days! It was a great time and I got to see all the touristy sights. (more…)

Moonflower Polish | Summer Neons

Hi everyone!

Summer is in full swing in the northern hemisphere, and with it, lots of bright neons! While I wear whatever polish I feel like in all seasons, there’s something summery about bright shades. Moonflower Polish has come out with a set of 8 bright shimmery neons that can be used for stamping or worn on their own. Today I have 4 of the 8 to share with you. This is a picture-heavy post since I have pictures of each polish on its own, over black and white, and stamped in a nail art look that shows one way I’d personally wear these, so get ready for lots of photos and enjoy 🙂 (more…)

Buzzing Bees | The Digital Dozen does In My Garden

Painted Fingertips | Bee water marble and nail art - The Digital Dozen does in my garden

Hi everyone!

It’s day 3 of The Digital Dozen does In My Garden! I’ve done some flowers, and some avocados – but you don’t always get to choose what’s in your garden. Sometimes you might have some visitors enjoying the sweetsmelling haven in their own way. I almost posted a different look today and left this one for tomorrow, but then I remembered it’s Water Marble Wednesday! (more…)

Peace Sign Stamping

Painted Fingertips | Peace sign stamping over BEGL The Ancient Power

Hi everyone!

When I posted about Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer The Ancient Power yesterday, I didn’t really feel like my pictures were doing this polish justice. Maybe it’s just me being overly critical after a really busy few weeks, but I wanted another chance to show you this beauty while it’s still available! I decided to add some quick stamping and show you how nicely The Ancient Power pairs with silver. (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 Futuristic: Holo Neon Geometric Nails

Painted Fingertips | Holo nails stamped with neon circles

Hi everyone!

It’s day 4 of the Digital Dozen does Futuristic! So far this week, I’ve shared Star Trek nails, chrome half-moon nails, and metal-dipped fingers. For today’s look, I was thinking about the directions that a lot of movies take with futuristic fashion. Think the garish colours of capitol fashion in The Hunger Games, or the hard geometric lines, lights and metallic finishes of the fashion in Tron. I wasn’t inspired by any specific movie, but it was with these types of bright colours, geometric shapes, and metallic finishes in mind that I came up with today’s nail art look. (more…)

Magenta Holo Nails with Starry Stamping

Hi everyone!

Remember the pink holo chrome powder I showed you a couple of weeks ago? Here it is again with added starry and lightning-y stamping! The intensity of the chrome finish made me want to stamp it with images that conveyed brightness and sparkle, so I went with stars and lightning. (more…)
