The Digital Dozen Does Black – Pink Accents

This post contains affiliate links.

Hi everyone!

It’s Digital Dozen week! This week’s theme is black. This seemed like the perfect theme for me to combine matte and glossy finishes – with a splash of colour, of course! I think this will be a fun theme, although I’m pretty sure I’ll be including at least a little colour each day. Painted Fingertips | Black with matte stamping and pink accents (more…)

Review and Nail Art – Born Pretty Store Silver Chrome Powder

Hi everyone!

Silver chrome nails have been all the rage over the past couple of months. I’m not exactly sure where the craze started, but it wasn’t long before powders were becoming available left right and centre to help you achieve the attention-grabbing mirror-like effect. More and more colour and effect options are also becoming available – I first saw the silver chrome powder which I am going to show you today, but you can also get gold and various other colours – and of course there is the multichrome powder which I recently shared with you.Painted Fingertips | Born Pretty Store Silver Chrome Powder

The Digital Dozen – Birthday Galaxies

Hi everyone!

Today the Digital Dozen are celebrating our January birthdays with some gorgeous galaxies! This month it is Shelly’s birthday from Sassy Shelly – go take a look at her nails if you haven’t already, she does some amazing nail art! She picked out a gorgeous image that just screamed galaxy nails.

Any of you that have been following Painted Fingertips for a long time may recall that galaxy nails haven’t always been my best friend. From my very first attempt more than 3 years ago (don’t click that link, they’re awful!) to glow in the dark galaxies to galaxies with star decals to aliens or eyeshadow galaxies, my galaxies just never work. The only times I’ve really liked any galaxy-themed nails I’ve done was when I steered away from the traditional look and did some fun freehand – like my star wars nails or my very busy spaceship nails. So, I was pretty wary of this theme, but I think I’ve done some galaxies that I’m at least okay with, even if it will still never be my favourite technique.

Hi everyone!

Today I have a review of some multichrome powder from Born Pretty Store to share with you. I am sure you have seen some similar products around – in fact, I did some holographic powder nails a couple of months ago. This was my first time trying a multichrome powder.

The Digital Dozen Does Decades – 90s Grunge

Hi everyone!

It’s day 2 of the Digital Dozen Decades theme and today I’ve jumped ahead to the 90s. This was a time of rock music, leather, and too much eyeliner. I decided on a distressed look with a splash of colour and some stamping: Painted Fingertips | The Digital Dozen Does Decades - 90s Grunge

The Digital Dozen Does Decades: 60s Water Marble

Hi everyone!

This month’s Digital Dozen theme is Decades. I just got back from my lovely California vacation, so I haven’t had all that much time to think up ideas for the theme, but I’ll do the best I can! I originally had a 30s idea to start off with, but I didn’t like how it turned out so I have decided to start off with the bright and colourful 60s instead! And what better way to use the bright 60s colours than in a water marble?

Digital Dozen Birthdays – Drip Marble

Hi, everyone!

Today I have a fun celebratory manicure to share with you. Each month, the Digital Dozen celebrates its members’ birthdays with some nail art. This month, the inspiration for the nail art was selected by our November birthday members Marisa of Polish Those Nails and Serene of Copycat Claws. This month’s inspiration picture reminded me of the effects created by the drip marble technique, so I decided to try one.
