Showing posts with label rhinestones

Hello lovelies,

About a month ago, Sophie from My Awesome Beauty challenged me to re-create her manicure she calls Peek-A-Boo Bling. It's basically a painted nail and crystal rhinestones under the nail tips. I loved the idea and accepted the challenge and here's the result!

I have used Zoya Sailor and Swarovski crystals from Stephen Arnold Ltd. e-shop*. The crystals are very sparkly and look so much better than the cheap plastic ones from nail wheels. It took 50 crystals to do it but I could have done with 5 more. I'm also re-using the crystals because I can clean them with acetone. I hate to waste good rhinestones :)

 

It took quite a while to finish this look because I've had to place the crystals carefuly but I love the result! Do you?

 

Don't forget to check out Sophie's version of this manicure!

Hello lovelies,

 

I've decided to post another pink manicure to support Breast Cancer Awareness Month. For this simple look I've used Illamasqua Pink Raindrops and Swarovski Crystals from Stephen Arnold e-shop.* I've used topcoat and orange wood stick to put the crystals on the nails and I've arranged them in half-circular pattern (half-moon).

 

When I was done wearing the nail design I wanted to keep the crystals. By not using a nail glue I could remove them and clean them with acetone and subsequently re-use them for another manicure. I wouldn't recommend doing that with the 'cheapo' plastic rhinestones :)

I really liked this look, probably because I have wedding thoughts in my head and these would look very pretty as wedding nails :p

 

Here's an official guide on how to use these Swarovski crystals in nail art. I've enjoyed using them because they are just so much prettier than the plastic rhinestones and you can expect another design soon!
