Born Pretty Store stamping polish #10 – orange


This post contains affiliate links.

Hi everyone!

A while ago I had a few Born Pretty Store points to use up and one of the products I decided to get with them was an orange stamping polish. I really enjoy having stamping polishes in a range of colours, there are so many nail art opportunities! Today I decided to show you how the orange stamping polish (#10) performs over a dark and a light base.


The Digital Dozen Does All that Glitters: Gold Glitter Placement

Painted Fingertips | Gold and orange glitter placement - the Digital Dozen does All that Glitters

Hi everyone!

It’s the final day of The Digital Dozen does All that Glitters – can you believe it? I’ve really enjoyed this theme – it allowed me to go a little crazy with over-the-top glittery looks. So far this week, I shared some glittering crystals, a glittery drip marble, glitter-dipped fingers, and a fun glitter gradient. Today I’ve gone for all-over glitter again with some glitter placement! I knew I had to do this for one day ever since we decided on this theme, and I decided to save it for the very end. (more…)

31DC2016 Day 2: Orange with Freehand Gold

Painted Fingertips | Orange with freehand gold for the #31DC2016

Hi everyone!

It’s day 2 of the 31 Day challenge and as I mentioned yesterday, I don’t love today’s nail art. I remember having a tube of gold acrylic paint among my other paints as a teenager, and noticed that it had a different texture than the others. That was confirmed when I recently bought some gold acrylic paint for nail art. It may be partly because I bought cheap craft paint instead of artist’s paint, but it definitely has a runnier texture compared to my other acrylics and I had a hard time getting a fine line like I’m used to – especially if I added more paint, wanting to darken a line – it’d just spread out! Oh, well. It’s still an orange freehand nail art! (more…)

Cobalt and Peach Water Marble

Hi everyone!

It’s Water Marble Wednesday! You might remember me mentioning a couple of times that I’m taking part in a weekly nail art challenge on Instagram this month. I’m cheating a little on this one by blogging these nails a bit earlier than the Instagram challenge – these are the nails for next Friday but I needed a good water marble for today! (more…)
