Hi polished friends! Today I’m excited to share with you a Spring Rhinestone Manicure I recently completed using Born Pretty Store Glam Studs …
The Born Pretty Store Glam Stud Wheel (Item #14307) contains gorgeous pink rhinestone studs of 12 different shapes and sizes including stars, flowers, butterflies, moons, bows, squares, rectangles, triangles, diamonds and ellipses. I decided to create an Ode to Spring Manicure and add flowers at the base of two nails with these lovely studs.
For this manicure, I started out with an opaque base of Essie We’re in it Together and let it dry completely. I then used the pointy end of one of my nail art dotters (you can also use a toothpick) and added a small bit of topcoat to the area where I wanted to place the studs. I then added the studs to the appropriate place, dipping the dotter into topcoat before grabbing the rhinestone, as this helps the stud adhere to the dotter while placing it on the nail bed.
The Glam Studs were super easy to apply and look incredibly pretty! I can’t wait to get my hands on these studs in other colors as well. 🙂
To complete this look, I added a coat of one of my favorite toppers, China Glaze Fairy Dust, to the two fingernails that do not have rhinestones. This really pulled everything together and added a nice sparkly touch.
What do you think of this design? I really love how delicate this manicure turned out, and how relevant it is for spring.
Thanks a million for stopping by!
