Hello ladies. Sorry this post is a little later in the afternoon than you are used to. Tyler and I went shopping earlier today and I am just getting around to blogging now :) I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend so far!
So yesterday I showed you Julep Sienna, a beautiful "white gold" shimmer that I think will be great for the Christmas holiday season. When I wore it a few weeks ago, I decided that it needed something a little extra. And I also wanted to do some stamping so I did :)
For this I used Julep Sienna as my base colour. Then, with Konad Special Polish Black, I stamped on the crisscross design from plate #M79. Then with Jordana Black I freehanded some French tips :) Then, because I wanted to try out some rhinestones, and because I only had round ones in green, I applied them to the big dots of the stamp design on my ring and thumb nails. With a fairly thick layer of top coat, these puppies were NOT coming off! :)
I found myself petting my nails while wearing the rhinestones :) It was kinda weird and I'm sure if anyone saw me doing it they thought I was nuts! I love using the rhinestones and love what they add to nail art :) Maybe the colour combination isn't the greatest, but I have some clear/silver ones now so I can use those for something like this rather than green ;)
Do you guys use rhinestones? Do you like the look of them or are they too much for you?
Looks awesome! I have never used rhinestones but I want to try it sometime. I think I would be petting my nails all day too! LOLReplyDelete
They are really fun to use and pretty easy to use too :)Delete
Looks great! I really need to practice stamping more! This is flawless! My stamping never turns out this dark and clear.ReplyDelete
I have used the Konad "Special Polish" for this, but any polish that is on the thicker side (Sally Hansen Insta Dris) work as well :) I always make sure to clean my plate with remover between every nail to make sure the design is clean :)Delete
