31DC2016 Day 1: Red Freehand Roses

Painted Fingertips | Red freehand roses for the #31DC2016

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…)

Darling Diva Polish: The Deadpool Collection – Part 1 (the Holos!)

Painted Fingertips | Swatch: Darling Diva Polish - All the Dinosaurs Fear the T Rex

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

Hi everyone!

I am very excited to share with you the first half of the brand new Deadpool collection from Darling Diva Polish! If you’re following me on Snapchat, you might have already seen my first thoughts on these when I unpacked the box. For those of you who missed it – I was lucky enough to meet Carrie, the maker of Darling Diva Polish, in person a few weeks ago. When she offered to send me her upcoming collection I jumped at the chance. I have heard nothing but good things about this brand and they have such beautiful polishes! (more…)

#5minutenailart – Blue Hearts

Painted Fingertips | #5minutenailart - red with blue hearts

Hi everyone!

It’s time for another #5minutenailart! Are you excited? If you don’t know what this is all about, go take a look at my first post in the series, but the basic premise is that I start with a base of a single colour, your standard manicure, then I have just 5 minutes to turn it into some fun nail art!  (more…)

Swatch: Color Club Ruby Slippers

Painted Fingertips | Swatch: Color Club Ruby Slippers

Hi everyone!

I have a swatch to share with you today. I took these pictures a couple of weeks ago and today I had to share them with you because, just a couple of weeks after the tragedy of my first broken nail polish, my second one broke. I no longer have this gorgeous red so this is its last goodbye. I came home to find my husband scrubbing the floor with my nail polish remover… our cat had decided a few polish bottles belonged on the floor and sadly this one didn’t make it.

Ah, well – at least we still have pictures to enjoy!  (more…)

Red and Gold Needle Drag

Painted Fingertips | Red and gold needle drag

Hi everyone!

I’ve had these pictures in my ‘ready to post’ folder for a couple of weeks and it seems they got forgotten there amidst the December chaos, so you’ll just have to look at Christmas-coloured nails in January. Luckily, this look can be lovely with any colour combination, it just so happens that I went with red and gold. (more…)
