Hi everyone!

I can’t believe it’s already Monday! This weekend went by far too fast. There’s just not enough time to get everything done! I hope that you enjoyed my drip marble theme week last week, I had a lot of fun with it and now we are back to regular programming.

At least I can brighten this Monday a little with some swatches of a gorgeous polish. Today I am sharing my pictures of Fair Maiden Cosmic Confection, which is their contribution for February’s Polish Pickup. Polish Pickup has exploded onto the indie scene over the past few months with its creative way of offering polish and other products from a huge variety of makers, all in one store. Each month, makers create a polish inspired by a theme voted on by the group members. February’s theme is Sugar Rush. There are a lot of polishes available, so if you’re interested in seeing more, I recommend joining the Facebook Group! (more…)

Supermoon Lacquer | Ready to Launch Collection (Partial)

Painted Fingertips | Swatch - Supermoon Lacquer Ready to Launch

I purchased these products.

Hi everyone!

I have definitely mentioned a few times by now that The Howling Boutique’s Supermoon Lacquer is one of my favourite nail polish brands. Today I have swatches to share with you of 5 polishes from their original Ready to Launch collection, which came out over a year ago now. Although one of these shades has already been retired, the other four are still available and will be restocked later this week for the brand’s Black Friday/Cyber Monday sale. In addition, all of these polishes will be 30% off for the sale! You can join the brand’s Facebook group for more details and announcements. For now, let’s take a look at the pretty polishes!

Swatch: Northern Star Polish Shark Bite

The polish shown in this post was provided for honest review.

Hi everyone!

When I first moved to Minnesota I looked up which indie polish brands were local to Minnesota. I saw Northern Star Polish but to my disappointment, they were on hiatus at the time. I am happy to say that they’re back! They made their return a couple of months ago and have been participating in the monthly Polish Pickup initiative. I was over the moon when Kristin, the maker behind Northern Star, approached me about swatching this month’s polish. So, here is my first ever Northern Star polish – Shark Bite! (more…)

Water Marble Wednesday: Neon Teal, Green and Purple

Painted Fingertips | Water marble wednesday - neon green, purple and teal - macro

Hi everyone!

It’s Water Marble Wednesday! I hope you are still enjoying my Water Marble Wednesday series, I know I am! In fact, I’ve been enjoying marbling so much that I’m a couple of water marbles ahead of my blogging schedule – I had to pick and choose which one to post today! In the end, I decided on another neon water marble. I used a subset of the same polishes from last week’s marble, and went with a fun horizontal pattern. (more…)

If you’re interested in taking part in the challenge, check out the FAQ on Chalkboard nails and the daily inlinkz on More Nail Polish. Now, on to today’s two looks! (more…)

Hi everyone!

I have a review of another Born Pretty Store stamping plate to share with you today. I’ve actually already used this plate a couple of times, for my multicoloured flowers stamping and for these teal flowers – which I loved, so go take a look! I haven’t shown you the plate specifically yet, though, so I’ve done another 2 manicures using the plate to show you the pretty nail art you can do! (more…)

Painted Fingertips | Swatch: Darling Diva Polish - All the Dinosaurs Fear the T Rex

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

Hi everyone!

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! (more…)
