#5minutenailart: Polka dots

Painted Fingertips | 5 minute nail art: polka dots

Hi everyone!

I had a rough start to the week when I woke up Monday morning with some pretty bad abdominal pain. I ended up going to the hospital and after being examined by several doctors, having blood tests and a CT scan they confirmed it was appendicitis. If you’ve ever been in the hospital for something like this, you’ll know there is a lot of waiting involved! I was well taken care of though and I wound up in surgery late Monday night. Luckily an appendectomy is pretty much the most routine surgery there is, so I wasn’t too worried – just glad I could get better. I’m back home now and just feeling weak and tired and I can’t concentrate for long.

Fortunately, I had a bunch of posts lined up that I just had to write up – so at least I can blog! Today I have another 5 minute nail art post lined up for you. I covered it all in my first #5minutenailart post, but basically I start with a plain base colour and have just 5 minutes to turn it into art. (more…)

#5minutenailart: Distressed nails

Painted Fingertips | #5minutenailart - green and gold distressed

Hi everyone!

Before I show you today’s nail art, I wanted to let you know that I’ve joined Snapchat! My snapcode is in the sidebar or you can add me by my name, kerryfingertips. I’m still playing around with it and seeing if I like it, but part of that depends on you, too. Even though I do my nails for me, when it comes to social media, it’s more enjoyable to share in ways that YOU like to see and that you respond to. So go ahead and add me, and let me know what you’d like to see! I’m going to make my Snapchat a fun way to see some different things that are harder to show on other platforms. I’ll show you what I’m busy with as I’m painting my nails, step by step – so you’ll see what goes into it and you’ll see what I’m doing before it appears on the blog. Hopefully I’ll also do some snaps that are more about me so if you have any questions, snap me and let me know what you’d like to see!

Now, on to the nails! It’s time for another 5 minute nail art look. If you haven’t seen one of these before, you can go check out my first #5minutenailart post for an explanation of what it’s all about. (more…)

40 Great Nail Art Ideas – Hobbies!

Painted Fingertips | I love nail art

Hi everyone!

Despite the more limited time I have for nails now, I’ve decided to join in on a low-key group linkup. Some ladies are taking part every week but I’ve decided to aim for once every two weeks. Every second friday, you’ll be seeing a different nail art theme and not only will I share my own nails, but there’ll be a linkup at the bottom of the page for you to see more ideas on the theme. Today’s theme was hobbies and for me, that could only go one way. I am barely getting time to do my nails, when would I fit in another hobby at the moment? So, I did nail art about nail art!  (more…)

31 Day Challenge – Day 26: A pattern

Hi everyone!

Wow, day 26… it’s almost the end of the challenge! If I can just manage 5 more days I’ll have done it! 😀

pattern3Today’s nails had to be inspired by a pattern. I thought it would be cool to do some stamping for this, but I was really struggling with it, so I went back to something I find a little easier: A tiny brush and some striping tape.


31 Day Challenge – Day 11: Polka Dot Nails

Hi everyone!

Today we start off with the patterns section of the challenge – this is the part I have been looking forward to the most! For my polka dot mani, I followed this tutorial done by The Crumpet. The main difference is that mine doesn’t look nearly as neat, haha! But at least it was fun and summery 🙂 (more…)
