HPB Presents: Valentines Nails

Painted Fingertips | Roses and hearts Valentine's nail art

Hi everyone!

If you’re a follower of my blog, you’ve probably heard about the Facebook Group Hobby Polish Bloggers by now. HPB is a great support group for nail and nail polish bloggers. It’s not about sharing nail pictures, but rather is about discussing, asking for help, and being part of a blogging community. If you’re a blogger too, go check out the group! The past few months, we have been doing a monthly themed linkup for group members. This month’s theme is Valentine’s. Here’s what I came up with: (more…)

One-Stroke Roses for day 22 of the 31 Day Challenge

Hi everyone!

Today’s theme in the 31 Day Challenge is ‘Inspired by a Song’. This isn’t really one of my favourite themes as I don’t think most songs can be represented very well by a picture so I have trouble deciding on my inspiration. I decided to take an easy way out (though not an easy technique) and chose Bon Jovi’s Bed of Roses for my inspiration. (more…)

Hi everyone!

Today’s theme for the Neverending Pile Challenge is to use as many untried polishes in one mani as possible. I managed to use no less than ten untried polishes. That’s right, ten! I originally intended this for the Gold prompt, but I decided to move it up to today instead. (more…)

April Tri-Polish Challenge Part 1: Roses

Hi everyone!

My posting schedule is a bit off this week. After the long weekend we took for my boyfriend’s birthday I did my Monday post on Tuesday and only after posting it did I realise I was supposed to do my Tri-Polish Tuesday post.

I took part in this challenge a few times last year but I haven’t had a chance for it yet this year. The rules have changed a little and instead of using the exact same 3 polishes for each nail art design you only have to use the same 3 colours and you can switch polishes each week. (more…)

Roses and stripes with Renaissance Custom Lacquer

Hi everyone!

Today I’ve used the four Renaissance Cosmetics polishes I swatched here in some fun and girly nail art. I wanted to do some nail art with all four to show how great they go together. Since these polishes are made by the fantastic Meghan of Will Paint Nails For Food, I decided to replicate some roses and stripes nail art she recently created. (more…)

Textured Roses

Hello! Happy Friday! Today I have some textured roses for you. I am loving textured nail polish, but unfortunately, it’s not that easy to get a hold of here. I yearn after all the beauties I see on other blogs! Luckily for me, the lovely Michelle over at Ordinary Misfit was kind enough to mail me a mini set of the OPI Mariah Carey Liquid Sand polishes 😀

I was super excited to try them out and even though I was looking forward to Get Your Number and Can’t Let Go the most, I ended up pulling out The Impossible first to try out some textured nail art. (more…)
