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!

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…)

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…)

Review and Nail Art: Loki’s Nail Vinyls

Painted Fingertips | Loki's chevron 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. (more…)

12 Days of Christmas: Wrapped Presents

Hi everyone!

Today’s theme in the 12 Days of Christmas nail art challenge is presents. I really enjoyed creating this one and I hope you’ll like it too! These pictures almost didn’t make it to the blog. Something weird happened while I was copying them from my camera and I lost the whole folder. I tried to restore them but I couldn’t and I thought they were lost forever… luckily my boyfriend came to the rescue and he was able to restore them! Now we can all enjoy them 🙂 (more…)
