Mermaid Glitter Nails

Some items in this post were provided for review.

Hi everyone!

I’ve shown you quite a few different nail powders from Beauty Big Bang; today I have a different product from them to share with you. These are listed as their fish scale nail sequins and to me they just screamed mermaid glitter!

Snakeskin – The Digital Dozen does Rainforests

Hi everyone!

It’s day 4 of of the Digital Dozen does Rainforests! The rainforest is beautiful, but it can be dangerous as well – watch out for snakes! I had actually done this snakeskin stamping a couple of weeks ago and just hadn’t gotten around to posting it; I realised at the start of this week that it was perfect for the theme!

Vapid Cyberpunk Swatch

Hi everyone!

Today I have swatches of a gorgeous polish to share with you, Vapid Cyberpunk. Unfortunately this polish is no longer available as it was only available for purchase during a single pre-order, so your only hope for getting this polish now is if it is resold. However, it is so beautiful that I wanted to show it to you anyway! I do have a few extra pictures of this one because I just couldn’t choose. Enjoy!

Vapid Sweaters ‘N’ Denim with Stamping

This post contains affiliate links.

Hi everyone!

Today I’m having some fun with a thermal polish! Thermals are always fun to wear, I find myself glancing down at my nails throughout the day to check what colour they are! I still only have a couple of thermals in my collection. For today’s nail art, I had some fun with the much raved-about Vapid Sweaters ‘N’ Denim. I had seen good things about this polish ever since it came out, but I just wasn’t sure it was for me. Eventually, I decided to just try it, and I’m so glad I did! I wound up loving it just as much as everyone else seems to. Painted Fingertips | Vapid Sweaters & Denim with stamping (more…)

The Digital Dozen Does Black Day 5: Holo Roses

Hi everyone!

Can you believe we’re already at the end of Digital Dozen week? This week has just flown by! I’m especially glad it’s Friday though – I didn’t have a particularly tough week, but for some reason I’m really tired out and I need a weekend!

For the final day of the Digital Dozen does black week, I’ve included the least colour of any day – just a little silver holo – over the black base. Let’s take a look! Painted Fingertips | Holo Roses for the Digital Dozen Does Black (more…)

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.
