31DC2016 Day 31: Honour Nails You Love – Landscape Nails

Painted Fingertips | Landscape nail art for the #31DC2016

Hi everyone!

It’s the final day of the 31 Day Challenge! Can you believe it? I’m so glad that I’ve made it through this year’s challenge, and congratulations to everyone else who took part! The final theme is ‘honour nails you love’. I really enjoy this theme, because I love doing nail art inspired by others. There are so many fantastic nail bloggers, and when I see nails I love it’s hard not to recreate them. I often go to others when I’m in need of inspiration, too. If I can’t decide what to do on my nails, I’ll head to my Pinterest boards or catch up on my blog reading and see if it gives me any ideas. One of the nail artists who inspires me the most is Narmai of Piggieluv. She has incredible freehand nail art skills and comes up with the best, and often the craziest (in a good way!) ideas. So, it was only natural that I recreate one of her nail art looks for the final day of the challenge and I decided to go with some freehand landscape nails. (more…)

31DC2016 Day 28: Inspired by the US flag

Painted Fingertips | Nails inspired by the US flag for the #31DC2016

Hi everyone!

Today’s theme for the 31 Day Challenge is ‘inspired by a flag’. This has never been a very popular theme of the challenge; to me it seems oddly specific compared to most of the other themes. The American flag is usually popular, firstly since so many bloggers are from the US and secondly because the vibrant colours and the stars and stripes both lend themselves to nail art. I’ve never gone in that direction before, until today! (more…)

31DC2016 Day 11: Neon Dotticure

Painted Fingertips | Neon dots for #31DC2016

Hi everyone!

Today’s 31 Day Challenge theme is dots! I decided to do a neon dotticure. I wasn’t sure if this counts as freehand, since I was using a dotting tool – but then again I was using the dotting tool freehand? It’s a grey area, so I just went bright and detailed to make it count! (more…)

#31DC2016 Day 7: Black and White Pattern

Hi everyone!

Today’s theme for the 31 Day Challenge is black and white. It took me a long time to decide what to do for this theme. Whenever I do black and white nails, I feel like I should be able to do something really cool and dramatic, and then I have trouble figuring out what. In the end, I decided to fall back on a simple freehanded pattern that I made up as I went along. (more…)

Hi everyone!

Remember the colouring pencil musical notes nail art I did not long ago? I thought that it was such a cool technique that I had to try it again. Today I’m taking part in another theme for the Crumpet’s Nail Tarts 40 great nail art ideas challenge, and today’s theme was insects so I decided to go with butterfly wings!  (more…)
