I have an ornate turquoise and brown stamped look to share with you today that I really loved. A couple of months ago, I picked up my very first Emily de Molly polish during March’s Polish Pickup. I was not disappointed! I love turquoise shades and this one was gorgeous with its tiny coppery flakes. I decided to play off those copper flakes with some brown stamping: (more…)
I have a first on here on Painted fingertips today – I am sharing redone swatches of Supermoon’s The Chosen Collection, although I have already shared swatches of these before, back in 2016. The reason for this is that Supermoon Lacquer is having a huge 2-year anniversary celebration right now. As part of the celebration, all polishes from previous collections are available, including some retired shades. There are also several exclusives that are available during the sale, and if you join the Facebook fan group there are some discount codes available. Mardi, the maker behind Supermoon Lacquer, asked if I could reswatch these for her since I’ve upgraded my camera in the meantime, and I could do a better job or capturing their beauty.
Supermoon Lacquer is known for their great formulas and opaque polishes, and these are no exception. All swatches are 2 coats with top coat, and all have a fantastic formula. (more…)
It’s Digital Dozen week! This week’s theme is white. At first I didn’t like this theme at all – I was thinking that I’d have to do predominantly white, bridal-looking manicures all week. There’s nothing inherently wrong with that, but those types of looks just aren’t my usual style. Even for my own wedding, I wore turquoise nail polish! That made me dread the idea of an all-white week. That was until I had the idea to do nail art based on things that are white, rather than just making white the dominant colour. This meant that I could use plenty of colours, and I had fun coming up with things that are white! (more…)
I have some glittering, shimmering nail art to share with you today. I decided to use some flakie-packed polishes to create some shiny gemstone stamping decals. I don’t get enough use out of these flakie polishes, it was fun to use them all together in this look. (more…)
The week before last was the Digital Dozen’s ‘In My Garden’ week and I only managed to get 4 out of 5 nail art looks posted. I had really hoped to get the fifth one up in time, but just didn’t quite make it! I actually had these nails done and photographed, but wasn’t able to get the photos edited and the post ready in time to share it with you – so I am sharing it now instead. I did have a fun reason for not getting it done – my husband and I took a short mini-holiday to visit NYC for a few days! It was a great time and I got to see all the touristy sights. (more…)
It’s day 2 of The Digital Dozen does stamping! Yesterday I shared my review of stamping plate BeautyBigBang10 along with 2 stamped looks, and today I have another review of a plate from Beauty Big Bang, along with the usual 2 stamped looks. (more…)
It’s Digital Dozen week! Can you believe it’s already time again? Thanks to the February week being a little later in the month than usual, this one came up so quickly! I have to say that I have had a crazy couple of weeks and didn’t get much chance to prepare for this week. On top of that, I’m sick with a miserable cold and don’t really feel like doing anything. All that considered, I’ve decided to combine my Digital Dozen posts this week with some stamping polish and plate reviews that I need to get posted. I don’t usually like to combine but I have to get these up anyway, and technically they are perfect for the theme. So, today’s Digital Dozen stamping post comes in the form of a review of Beauty Big Bang stamping plate 10. (more…)
