Black & White Dotticure | The Digital Dozen Does Inspired by Each Other

Painted Fingertips | Black and white dots inspired by Druid Nails

Hi everyone!

I’m running a bit behind with this week’s Digital Dozen posts – I’m going to a conference next week and I’ve had a really busy few days preparing for it. The good news is I think I’m ready for the conference, so now I’m going to be playing catchup with some nail art posts for you. For my second ‘inspired by each other’ look, I was inspired by this black and white dotticure done by Druid Nails. Simple but so striking and pretty! (more…)

Guest Post: Kristi from BeginNails

Hi everyone!

Since I am currently TAing a field camp in Northern Minnesota, I’ve decided to enlist the help of a few of my favourite fellow nail bloggers with some guest posts here on Painted Fingertips.

#5minutenailart: Polka dots

Painted Fingertips | 5 minute nail art: polka dots

Hi everyone!

I had a rough start to the week when I woke up Monday morning with some pretty bad abdominal pain. I ended up going to the hospital and after being examined by several doctors, having blood tests and a CT scan they confirmed it was appendicitis. If you’ve ever been in the hospital for something like this, you’ll know there is a lot of waiting involved! I was well taken care of though and I wound up in surgery late Monday night. Luckily an appendectomy is pretty much the most routine surgery there is, so I wasn’t too worried – just glad I could get better. I’m back home now and just feeling weak and tired and I can’t concentrate for long.

Fortunately, I had a bunch of posts lined up that I just had to write up – so at least I can blog! Today I have another 5 minute nail art post lined up for you. I covered it all in my first #5minutenailart post, but basically I start with a plain base colour and have just 5 minutes to turn it into art. (more…)

31 Day Challenge – Day 11: Polka Dot Nails

Hi everyone!

Today we start off with the patterns section of the challenge – this is the part I have been looking forward to the most! For my polka dot mani, I followed this tutorial done by The Crumpet. The main difference is that mine doesn’t look nearly as neat, haha! But at least it was fun and summery 🙂 (more…)
