Pink Sun & Rhinestones

Hey guys, this is a design I'm not sure I love, I was mostly experimenting with stuff, tell me what you think :)

Here's the supplies I used:

-Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear, Mellow Yellow
-Claire's mood polish, Fabulous/Funky (mine is a crap bottle that doesn't change color, so I just use it as a plain neon pink instead of a mood polish)
-Kiss Nail Art Paint, green
-Kleancolor Nail to Toe, gold glitter

For the first step, paint all your nails pink.

I didn't take individual photos of every step for this manicure, but here are some photos of the other supplies. The stamping plate I used, the stamp and scraper, dotting tool and rhinestone wheel.

Basically what I did was stamp the sun, add a yellow rhinestone in the middle and two green lines going horizontally 'through' the sun, and some glitter on the sun's rays. The glitter ended up overtaking the stamp in the final photos lol

Here's a close up view of the stamp I chose (and my camera lens)


I hope some of you liked this, I didn't leave it on my nails for too long. Any comments on how you'd change it up?

Periwinkle Glitter

This is one of my all time favorite color-glitter combination.

These are the polishes I used:

- Base coat/hardener
- Nail Duo polish, regular brush end
- Wet N Wild, Party of Five Glitters
- Top coat

I wore this manicure for nearly 2 weeks, which is the longest I've ever had one mani on before changing it, I really loved this one!

After about a week and a bit, I put a matte top coat on (sorry about the photo quality):

Glitter Spaces

This design is kinda random, but I ended up really liking it. It reminds me of those birds nests where you take a piece of toast and fry an egg in a hole in the middle.

I haven't cleaned up my cuticles yet here, but you get the idea.

Here's the supplies I used:

-Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear, Black Out
-Art Deco, black
-Kiss, pink glitter
-Kleancolor Nail to Toe, silver glitter

First you want to paint all your nails black minus some v shaped gaps on each one to fill with glitter.

Then add whatever colors/sizes of glitter you wish into the empty spaces. After a top coat, you're done!
