Lemon & Cherry

Hi everyone!

There is a weekly nail art challenge run by some ladies on Instagram that I’ve been meaning to participate in for ages. This month I finally decided to give it a shot. No guarantees that I’ll make it through all of the themes for the month as I have a busy month ahead, but I’ll see what I can do.

The first theme was Lemon & Cherry. This was meant as in the colours lemon and cherry but I decided to take it more literally with actual lemons and cherry blossoms. lemon-and-cherry (more…)

Cute Fruit Print Nails

Hi everyone!

While browsing blogs recently I came across these Fruity Summer Nails by Coewless. If you haven’t seen her blog before you should go check it out, because she does some amazing nail art! The little fruits were so cute, I had to try to recreate it. Painted Fingertips | Cute fruit print nails (more…)

Water Marble Wednesday: Woodgrain

Hi everyone!

It’s Water Marble Wednesday and today I have created woodgrain on my nails! I’ve had this idea in my head ever since I did this vertical stripe water marble and it reminded me of woodgrain (even though it was blue). I’d been putting off trying it in brown as I have a whole two brown polishes and I figured there wasn’t much chance that they would happen to marble well. I eventually decided I may as well just try them in the water and to my surprise, both polishes marbled perfectly! Painted Fingertips | Woodgrain Water Marble (more…)

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…)

12 Days of Christmas: Freestyle

Hi everyone!

It’s the final day of the 12 Days of Christmas Challenge from Challenge Your Nail Art! I’m so glad to have made it to the end. Today’s nail art is inspired by some recent Christmas decorations nail art from Will Paint Nails For Food. I really love Meghan’s blog and her nails always look beautifully artistic with perfect line work. I couldn’t get mine looking as perfect as hers but I liked my hanging Christmas decorations nonetheless! Painted Fingertips | Christmas decorations (more…)

HPB Presents: Christmas Nail Art!

Hi everyone!

You may remember this post from a couple of months ago where I participated in a Halloween linkup with the Hobby Polish Bloggers Facebook group. This month, we’re doing it again, with a Christmas/holiday/winter themed post. Hobby Polish Bloggers is a group for anyone who casually blogs, mostly about polish or nails. It is not a group for sharing pictures but rather for asking questions, getting support, and discussing all things nails and blogging. If you’re a blogger too, check it out!

12 Days of Christmas: Snowmen

Hi everyone!

Today I have another post for the 12 Days of Christmas Challenge hosted by the Facebook Group Challenge Your Nail Art. Today’s theme is snowmen – another wintery one even though it’s summer here! I couldn’t complain though because once I saw a lovely snowman scene by Instagram nail artist @MelissaRose0410 I couldn’t wait to try something similar! Painted Fingertips | Snowman scene (more…)

Spring Time Nails!

Hi everyone!

I have been loving the warmer weather lately so I decided to celebrate the change of season with some nail art! Coewless did this spring nail art months ago – back when it was autumn here – and I was just waiting for my chance to recreate it! Painted Fingertips | Spring nail art (more…)

Rainbow Nails for Day 9 of the 31 Day Challenge

Hi everyone!

I had some trouble deciding what to do for today’s prompt. I’ve done rainbow gradients before, so I wanted to try something different. The first idea I had didn’t work out at all but I am actually glad because I love the result of my next idea:Painted Fingertips | Rainbow nails - 31 Day Challenge 2014 Day 9 (more…)
