It's the first week of the challenge and I'm already behind! Yikes! The good news is that I've already done the challenges for this upcoming week so I'll just schedule those posts and there won't be any delays this week. :)
Challenge #2... let's consult the chart shall we?
Gimme That Bling!: Diamonds are a girl's best friend so put some sparkle on those nails!
So, I love blue with diamonds and I love blue stones so I figured, why not put it all together?
I kept this manicure relatively simple because I wanted the stones to really stand out.
I started with a base of Essie - Midnight Cami. It's a gorgeous midnight blue with subtle shimmer (the shimmer seems very shy in my pics).
Then I added giant blue rhinestones at the base of my nail. Last, I framed the blue with two small clear rhinestones on either side. I'm pretty happy with how this turned out. I wanted non-fussy bling and I think that's what I got!
Be sure to check out what the other ladies participating in this challenge have created!
I'm so behind that theirs are all up.
'Til next time,
ETA: I know the rhinestones are ridiculously huge, but when it comes to diamonds, it's go big or go home. Am I right, ladies?
