So if you have followed my nail polish escapades, you may know that I purchased 1800 nail gems for the princely sum of 99c (including postage!).
There are literally zillions in there in all different colours, two different blues, pinks, reds, silvers- you name it! Unfortunately on the evening that I played around with them a few gems got stuck in the twisting cover so I could only get a couple of colours out, that's why the colours are pretty basic.
This is what I came up with...
I like the nail on the far left, I think that would look nice with a plain manicure, as an accent nail. The middle one is supposed to be a lopsided heart shape and the right nail is a flower obvs. I didn't bother doing a close up of my baby finger as it didn't amount to much really, actually I am pretty sure I got bored by that stage.
Now for my piece de resistance (oh what larks!) on my thumb nail. Its a pretty flower with a stem and everything. Not going to lie, it took me bloody ages to do!
For this I just wanted a plain base, so I used Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manucure in Pink Slipper.
Application-wise I just stuck the gems into the wet polish, they lasted for 2 days before I got bored with my one hand of
tacky fabulous 'art' and pulled them all off.
What do you think of my experimentation with nail gems?
