The Digital Dozen Does December: Christmas Trees

Painted Fingertips | Textured Christmas Tree Nail Art

Hi everyone!

Naturally, December brings Christmas! I’ve always loved Christmas and I have happy childhood memories of setting up the Christmas tree. When we first got a fake tree, we had far too many ornaments for the tiny tree but we insisted on squeezing them all on anyway – it probably looked ridiculous but we liked it and we’d sit around it in the evenings with all of the lights on 🙂 (more…)

Hi everyone!

Today I have a review of some fun Born Pretty Store water decals to share with you. They’re paisley patterned water decals and they have a clear base, so I decided to use them over a fun water marble. (more…)

The Digital Dozen Does Colour Contrast Day 3: Red and Green

Painted Fingertips | The Digital Dozen Does Contrast - green with red flowers

Hi everyone!

It’s day 3 of the Digital Dozen does colour contrasts week and today I’m going with the third ‘obvious’ contrast – red and green! I’ve already shown you my blue and orange and purple and neon yellow nails. We actually had a bit of a discussion in the Digital Dozen group about how to avoid making red and green look too Christmassy, I think I managed it though 🙂 (more…)

Swatches and a GIVEAWAY! Supermoon Lacquer The Chosen Collection

Painted Fingertips | Swatch: The Howling Boutique's Supermoon Lacquer - Fight Your Demons

The polishes used in this post include both press samples and items purchased at a blogger discount.

Hi everyone!

I am so excited to share today’s post with you. Not only am I going to share seven beautiful new polishes from The Howling Boutique’s Supermoon Lacquer with you, but there is also a giveaway at the end! You will be able to win your choice of two of these beauties – this post is picture heavy but be sure to make it through to the end for the giveaway!

Supermoon Lacquer is a relatively new brand, but one that has already caught my eye – you may have noticed me using one of their polishes as the base for my water drops nail art a couple of weeks ago. Of course, I jumped at the chance to swatch their new, gloriously darker collection, filled with shimmer and shift. This is Supermoon’s third full collection and it may just be their best yet!

The Digital Dozen Does Vampy: Roses over a Gradient

Painted Fingertips | Gradient and roses for the Digital Dozen Vampy week

Hi everyone!

Wow, I can’t believe it’s been a full week since I’ve posted! I intended to post more last week but I’ve been having a particularly crazy time with work, and after the 31 Day Challenge, I just didn’t have a post ready to go. Good news though – I’ll be posting every day this week! And not just any posts, Digital Dozen posts! That’s right, I’m now a member of the Digital Dozen nail art group! If you follow a lot of nail art blogs, you’ve probably heard of the group already. If not, the Digital Dozen is a group of nail bloggers who choose a theme each month and then post 5 nail art looks for the theme during one week, Monday to Friday. The group has been around for 4 years already, with membership changing over time, and I’ve always looked up to the members as fantastic nail artists. I am really excited that I have the opportunity to be in this group now! I think it’ll be a lot of fun and hopefully I’ll create some great nail art to share with you all.

This month’s theme, for my first month with the Digital Dozen, is vampy. (more…)

Hi everyone!

As promised, I’m here for the first day of the 31 Day Challenge with not just any nail art, but freehand nail art! Once again, if you’re interested in participating or just want to know more about the challenge, check out the FAQ. I’ll also include the full list of prompts at the end of this post. The very first theme is red. For this one, I decided to make the red the ‘feature’ colour with the main colour being pink. (more…)

Swatches: Darling Diva Polish – Watch Your Pack Collection

Painted Fingertips | Darling Diva Polish - Tainted (Watch your Pack)

The polishes used in this post were provided for my honest review.

Hi everyone!

Today I am excited to share a new collection from Darling Diva Polish with you. This 8-piece collection, called Watch Your Pack, is inspired by the TV show Teen Wolf. I haven’t watched Teen Wolf yet, but considering previous DDP collections include Deadpool, which I liked, and Star Wars, which I love, maybe I should! This collection is releasing this Friday, 22 July, and all polishes are one-pour only, which means when they’re sold out, they’re gone forever. I absolutely love this collection so I’ve taken a lot of pictures (picture heavy post!) and I recently got a macro lens for my phone – if you follow me on Snapchat you may have already seen macros of some of these – so for the first time on Painted Fingertips, I’ll be including macro shots of all polishes as well. Enjoy! (more…)
