Zoya Chita with Starry Stamping

Painted Fingertips | Zoya Chita with starry stamping

Hi everyone!

Lately it’s seemed like we’ll be getting an early Spring, and then it’s only a matter of time until Summer. Once Summer comes, the long warm evenings will probably find you looking up at the stars before long! Hopefully they don’t look quite like the ones in the starry manicure I have to show you today, or something could be seriously wrong. This is an older manicure which I didn’t get around to posting for a while – here it is at last. (more…)

Hi everyone!

I have two really gorgeous manicures to share with you today. I love both of these so much that I almost split them up into separate posts, but I want to show you different things that can be done with a fantastic stamping plate.

A few months ago, Born Pretty Store did a promotion to celebrate their birthday where anyone who shared their post would be sent one of three free celebration packets. Of course, I picked the nail stamping one. (more…)

Hi everyone!

Painted Fingertips | 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: (more…)

Digital Dozen Birthdays – Drip Marble

Painted Fingertips | Digital Dozen Birthday 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. (more…)

Hi everyone!

To my American readers, I hope you all had a lovely Thanksgiving! Mine was delightful and I really got to share in the Thanksgiving spirit for the first time 🙂

I recently received a new review package from Born Pretty Store and I have plenty of new goodies to show you over the next few weeks! The first snow has come and gone here in Minnesota, so it’s a good time to start showing off some snowy manicures. One of the items I received from Born Pretty Store was this snow-themed stamping plate, plate L008. (more…)

#31DC2016 Day 21: Inspired by Autumn Colours

Painted Fingertips | Swatch: Seche Premier Lacquer Whimsical

Purchased using PR discount.

Hi everyone!

We’re into the final section of the 31 Day Challenge! All the rest of the themes are ‘inspired by’ something and today’s is inspired by a colour. The beginnings of autumn have definitely arrived here in Minnesota and a few of the trees are beginning to change. It seems like this year I’ve caught the fall bug, too. I love summer, but I’ve found myself drawn to browns and bronzes recently. In the Voxbox I received from Influenster a few weeks ago, I got a bottle of Seche Intrepid and also a coupon to get a second colour with the purchase of a bottle of Seche Vite. Seche Vite is a great top coat, so of course I took advantage of it. The colour I decided to pick was the perfectly autumny Seche Whimsical. (more…)
