Elegant rhinestones

From quite a while I received some beautiful and very special rhinestones from the Born Pretty Store. So let's see how they look and the mani I've created with them. 

The rhinestones come in a round plastic wheel separated in 12 small compartments. The size of the rhinestones are between 2 and 4 mm and they are four different sized one. As you can see in the images bellow the rhinestones have a multichrome effect with a wonderful color shift.


I used for the base a light lavender shade from Flormar that I won from Oana - Unghiutze colorate
For my manicure I used the hairspray technique. This is the first time I use this type of nail art and I have to add that I must exercise more.  The whole procedure is quite easy, but I am not a big friend of water based nail art so I think that the final result is not so good.

For those of you who don't know how this technique works, I am going to write it down in a few steps: 
1. Use a glass of water and a brush dipped in nail polish to let a drop of nail polish fall into the cup of water. The polish will spread across the surface and depending on the intensity of the final marble effect you can put more or less drops;
2. Spray hairspray once or twice onto the surface and this way the nail polish will break apart;
3. Place the before polished and dried nail down onto the surface of the water;
4. With a toothpick, remove the nail polish surrounding the finger.

The result is a marble like pattern seen in the pictures. I added a layer of glitter on top of them. On my accent nail I placed the different sized rhinestones randomly. 







For placing the rhinestones on my nails I had a very useful tool, a wax pen. This pen picks up any kind of rhinestones easily, you just have to lightly touch them. I am glad that I have this tool because it makes my work even easier. 




Both items shown above are fantastic ones! With the rhinestones, that you can find here, you can make any kind of plain polish color look special, just use your imagination. The wax pen, that you can find here, is more than useful for placing any kind of rhinestone on the wanted place!

  7. The rhinestones look so glamourous! The hairspray technique sounds a bit complicated to me, so if I ever got this done, I'd let an expert do it.

  8. Rhinestones have such a daring appearance in terms of nail designs, in my opinion. I always wondered how people managed to get there polish to separate and now I know, so thank you for that tip!

  24. Thank you. It was hard to choose what kind of design to make that could match this beautiful rhinestone.

  25. Mersi de pont. Stiam ca merge mai bine cu spirt, si am incercat cu parfum, dar efectul nu a fost mult mai diferit. Cred ca era prea densa oja pe care am folosit-o.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Vai, iti multumesc. Eu nu sunt extrem de multumita de rezultatul final.

  27. Koszi. A kovecskek valoban kulonlegesek de a manikur szerintem lehetett volna jobb is!

  35. Sa stii ca eu foarte rar le port. Aceasta manichiura am sters-o dupa cateva ore. Arata bine dar eu personal zilnic, cu spalari de vase, lucru de casa etc. nu le pot purta. La evenimente, se potrivesc foarte bine dupa parerea mea. Te pup.
