Allo polish Pals!
How are you doing today?! I hope you all have a lovely weekend! I don't have anything too special planned this weekend. Maybe some exercise but I'd love to really get myself in gear, get back to being as organized as I was at the start of the year.
I normally have lists floating around everywhere telling me what post goes up on what day, what I still need to complete, random ideas I have and more.. so I'm going to try and use this week to get it back!
Today I have some really simple but cute little studs to show you from the Born Pretty Store.
Now I know a lot of people will have wheels like this, I know I had clear rhinestones as one of my first pieces of nail art but I just feel like these are slightly prettier.. more like raindrops! These are Silver Bling Mixed Rhinestones.
This nail art wheel features something I feel we all have some like perhaps, but these are just a little more... clear and spectrum-y within the right lighting. I have basic nail rhinestones but they are not as 'droplet' like as these. In the right lighting there's a strong colour shift from pinky shades through to green.
The wheel contains different shapes including stars, squares, circles, triangles, bow-ties, flowers and teardrops.
With my new found love of stamping I decided to pair these studs with some stamp-art. I think in hindsight it was a slightly poor choice, too much going on even for me but it does have a rather interesting frozen-esque feel going on.
I began with two coats of Essie's 'Nice Is Nice' and once dry created a gradient using Claire's 'Splash'. I added my Pro-fx quick dry top coat and proceed to stamp using Barry M's 'Silver foil' and my BP-21 stamping plate.
What do you think of my very icey looking nails? Do you still find yourself reaching for rhinestones?
Have a beautiful day and a wonderful weekend, See you on Monday!
