Royal Purple Nails – Fit For a Queen!

Hi everyone!

You might remember that I briefly showed you three different nail art designs in my recent post about the Frankie watch from JORD, but I didn’t show you many detailed pictures of the nails or tell you how I did them. Well, today I’ve decided to show you the first of those 3 and talk about it a little! On the topic of that recent post – if you haven’t grabbed your gift card for $25 off a JORD watch yet, you can get it herePainted Fingertips | Royal purple and textured checks

Freehand Floral Nails

Hi everyone!

For today’s nail art, I just really felt like doing a nice bright gradient and then topping it with something flowery. Once the gradient was done, I couldn’t settle on which way to go with the floral, so I ended up doing something similar to what I did in this post, which was originally inspired by Lacquerstyle.

Swatch: Rimmel Shirley Temple

Hi everyone!

Today I have another older swatch to share with you that I did a while ago and just never got around to posting. This one comes from the Rimmel Cocktail Colour in a Flash collection. This collection consisted of 5 colours – orange, blue, red, green, and purple – all with a similar glass fleck finish. Today I have the orange to share with you.

Cute Sweeties Nail Art

A few weeks ago I saw this bright cute sweets nail art on the Dalai Lama’s Nails and I couldn’t wait to try it on my own nails. I went with a completely different colour scheme, but kept it bright, colourful, and fun and I love the outcome! Painted Fingertips | Cute sweets nail art (more…)

31DC2014 Day 2 – Aerosmith for Orange

Hi everyone!

Today’s prompt in the 31 Day Challenge is orange. I was pretty stuck for what do to for this prompt for a while. My boyfriend and I were listening to the latest Aerosmith album, Music From Another Dimension!, when I complained that I needed an idea for orange nails. He immediately pointed out the Aerosmith logo on the album was in orange and I should do that! painted-fingertips-31dc2014-31-day-challenge-2014-day-2-orange-aerosmith-logo-nails (more…)

31 Day Challenge – Day 29: The Supernatural

Hi everyone!

It is such a beautiful, warm, sunny Sunday here! I hope you are all having lovely relaxing days as well 🙂

Today’s theme is inspired by the supernatural. Since I am not all that into the supernatural, I decided to extend the theme a little to more of a Halloween vibe. Halloween has many supernatural connotations, anyway 🙂

I started with a coat of Essence Colour & Go in Flashy Pumpkin on each nail, then a coat of Rimmel Cocktail Colour in Shirley Temple to give it some sparkle. I stamped using the black and white stampy polishes from Essence.
