Mosaic Stamping Decals

Hi everyone!

Last week I reviewed a Born Pretty Store stamping plate, and the images were so cool that I couldn’t resist doing another look with it. This time I decided to make some stamping decals, and the pattern and colours reminded me of a mosaic. Painted Fingertips | Round and square stamping decals (more…)

Mermaid Glitter Placement Nails

Hi everyone!

I have something extra special to share with you today. Glitter placement is nothing new, but it’s the first time I’ve tried something quite like this. I have done glitter placement before, but with much larger glitters.  I have a set of various glitters I bought ages ago from Bundle Monster. When I was looking for a specific one the other day, I happened to notice the set included some opalescent hexagonal glitters… and I knew I had to do a glitter placement look.

Water Marble Wednesday: Vertical Stripes

Hi everyone!

It’s Water Marble Wednesday again and I really like what I’ve come up with today! I’ve done water marbles consisting of horizontal stripes before (my bee water marble and mummy water marble), but I realised I’d never done one with vertical stripes so of course I had to try it.

Today, I used my water marble to create a gradient. Painted Fingertips | Water Marble Gradient for #31DC2014 Day 10 - gradient (more…)

Thank goodness it’s weekend! Time for some rest and relaxation… and to go with that, I have my first ever attempt at using acrylic paints on my nails for you today:
