My Wedding Day Flowers – The Digital Dozen Does Paper

Hi everyone!

It’s day 5 of the Digital Dozen does Paper! So far this week, I’ve done paper planes, love letters, wrapping paper, and colouring books.

I was really having a hard time coming up with an idea for the final day of The Digital Dozen does Paper when suddenly it occurred to me. There was one day in my life on which paper had an unusual significance. Don’t get me wrong, paper is important on many days – we use it to learn, to immerse ourselves in stories, to express ourselves. But on this one day, paper was a part of the celebration of my husband and I choosing a life together – my wedding day! I decided that rather than buying expensive flowers which would only wilt and die, I’d make my own flowers for my and my bridesmaid’s bouquets, as well as all of the table decor – from paper! In fact, I posted a little about the process of making the flowers. I absolutely loved them and today’s nail art is inspired by those paper flowers that I painstakingly folded.

Hi everyone!

Today I have a review of some Born Pretty Store nail foils. Since I bought some foil glue a couple of months ago, I decided it was time to give patterned foil another go and see if I could make it work for me.Painted Fingertips | Silver foil from Born Pretty Store (more…)

Distressed and Stamped Nails

Hi everyone!

Today I have one from the stash to share with you – I did these nails months ago but never got around to posting them. I didn’t quite love the nail art so it always seemed like there was something else to post first. I still think they’re fun, though, so I’m glad I’m finally getting around to sharing them with you!

Zoya Chita with Starry Stamping

Hi everyone!

Lately it’s seemed like we’ll be getting an early Spring, and then it’s only a matter of time until Summer. Once Summer comes, the long warm evenings will probably find you looking up at the stars before long! Hopefully they don’t look quite like the ones in the starry manicure I have to show you today, or something could be seriously wrong. This is an older manicure which I didn’t get around to posting for a while – here it is at last. Painted Fingertips | Zoya Chita with starry stamping (more…)

Hi everyone!

To my American readers, I hope you all had a lovely Thanksgiving! Mine was delightful and I really got to share in the Thanksgiving spirit for the first time 🙂

I recently received a new review package from Born Pretty Store and I have plenty of new goodies to show you over the next few weeks! The first snow has come and gone here in Minnesota, so it’s a good time to start showing off some snowy manicures. One of the items I received from Born Pretty Store was this snow-themed stamping plate, plate L008.

Swatches: Darling Diva Polish – Watch Your Pack Collection

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!

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

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

Hi everyone!

deadpool-collection-darling-diva-holos-collage-painted-fingertips-3

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!

This was my first experience with this brand and it did not disappoint. This collection consists of no less than 10 nail polishes. To keep my posts a manageable length since each polish needs several pictures I have split it into two parts. This first part will show the 5 holo polishes, while in the second half you will see some flakies and cremes. I’ve saved my personal favourite of the 5 holos for last, so make sure you make it to the end of the post!
