Rainbow Opal Nails TUTORIAL - The Shattered Glass Technique
I've got another exciting manicure to show you today AND there's a video tutorial! You already know that I love the shattered glass nail trend but I like to try new things. I came across a beautiful opal photo at The Arkenstone (big thanks to them for allowing me to use their photo) that inspired me to use the shattered glass method to create this rainbow opal look.
I couldn't be happier with this manicure, it looked amazing in real life! I stared at my nails for ages and didn't want to take them off. It resembled the opal stone even more than I thought I could pull off and it wasn't that difficult to do. Here is the list of products I've used and where you can buy them..

What do you think? Simple enough to create? If you do give it a try I'd love to see your nails! Tag me @lucysstash or include #lucysstash to let me know :)
Just as I'm writing this post I've done some googling and found that Lexa from glitterfingersss-en.blogspot.hu has done little bit similar look at the beginning of this year even though she has used a bit different method.. So just to avoid any misunderstandings, I'm not claiming to have invented this look but I didn't see anyone else until I just googled it :) Check her out!
Hope you've enjoyed this look and will check out my tutorial as well! Have a lovely day! Lucie x
