A2Z - J is for Jewel

Hello loves. Sorry I have been a bit absent this week - I've had a lot going on at home lately and my nails/blog have been the last thing on my mind quite honestly. 

I did however manage to get this week's A2Z manicure done - even if it is a couple of days late. This week we're on J which is for jewel. I was torn between doing a manicure using jewel toned colours, or just covering my nails in rhinestones (since they're close enough to jewels right?!). In the end I settled on the rhinestone option, as I felt like something a bit over the top!

For my base I used OPI - Don't Bossa Nova Me Around but I taped off the bottom portion of my nail to leave that bare. I then just went and stuck a load of rhinestones on my nails (I bought these ones from Born Pretty Store). I only used topcoat to secure my rhinestones and they lasted me three days - which I was pretty impressed with. 

These nails may be a bit over the top for some people - but I loved them! I guess this could be toned down by just doing the rhinestones as an accent nail, but I figured if I'm gonna do it I'm gonna do it properly!

  3. Simply stunning! I love them.

  4. That looks really great, and I'm surprised that they lasted for three days. (But that's because I would have picked them off myself :D )

    1. Thank you lovely. It was tempting to pick them off, but I managed to restrain myself lol!
