31DC2016 Roundup

Painted Fingertips | Starry starry night nail art for the #31DC2016

Hi everyone!

Another year’s 31 Day Challenge is over. The end of a challenge can be a little anticlimactic. We’ve done all of this work and all of these beautiful nail designs and it’s just over, seemingly never to be seen again! I really felt like I challenged myself and did some of my best nail art this challenge, so I decided to share it with you one more time in a challenge roundup. Just click on any of the pictures to be taken to the full post if you missed any of these! (more…)

Painted Fingertips | Top 10 nail art looks of the year

Hi everyone!

It’s official! Exactly two years ago today I published my very first post here on Painted Fingertips. If you’re not interested in a lot of reading, skip ahead and see my top 10 looks of the year! Last year this time, I did a post showing the same nail design I’d done in my first post to show you how I’d improved. Proof that anyone can do nail art! I also started my Water Marble Wednesday series, in which I posted no less than 33 water marbles! I had a great time doing them and I came up with all sorts of things, including little bees, mummies for Halloween, a rainy day and a woodgrain, a gradient, candy canes, a christmas tree, a spiderweb, and of course some good old marbled swirls. Over the past couple of months I’ve struggled to come up with new ideas for the series, so I’ll be retiring it now. That doesn’t mean I won’t post water marbles any more – I’ll even probably still post them on Wednesdays – but I’m not going to try to do a water marble each week when I don’t have a fresh idea for one any more.

Roundup – #31DC2014

Hi everyone!

The 31 Day Challenge is officially over and I’m very glad to have made it to the end. I was proud of a lot of the nail art I’ve created this month so I thought I’d do a roundup post with some of my favourites (and least favourites!). If you see anything you like or that you missed during the challenge, click on the link or the picture to see the details! I did a little bit of everything during this month so lets jump right in!

Round-up: Nail Art A-Go-Go Challenge


Hi everyone!

If you’re a fairly regular reader on this blog, you’ll know that during the month of February I did the Nail Art A-Go-Go Challenge hosted by Gnarly Gnails. It was 28 days of nail art, and it was a lot of fun! I managed the daily nail art, I tried a bunch of new techniques, and I did some designs that I was pretty proud of. Let’s start off by taking a look at the themes covered by the challenge: (more…)
