Little Mermaid

For today’s nail art, I decided to start off with a base of the beautiful piCture pOlish Lagoon. It is a beautiful glitter/scatter holo mix suspended in turquoise. I love the depth of the glitter in this polish, the hex glitters add such a nice touch! It’s like little bubbles in the water. ^_^

To compliment this polish, I decided to paint the Little Mermaid and her buddy Flounder on top. I used some rhinestones from the bornprettystore (#7300). The package came with a number of colors but for this look I only used the dark blue as little bubbles. :)

Multicolor Rhinestones & Stripes

The wonderful Allison of Born Pretty sent us a few nail art items for review and we will be sharing them in a few separate posts. The first item up for review are the rhinestones (Item #15228). If you use the offer code DGG10, you’ll get 10% off at the born pretty store! How awesome is that? ;)

These are super cute multi color rhinestones, at about 1-2mm in diameter. In different angles, the rhinestones change from a bright green and yellow to a lovely pink and bronze. I loved the small size as well as the shift in the color. I thought that these were a perfect addition to my accent nails and my nails still looked classy and practical. I personally like to keep the amount of 3D decorations on my nail minimal. Just a little here and there can make a huge difference, no need to go overboard.

I have a few more ideas in mind for how I would like to use these. Here is one look using grays and small pops of color to balance out the colors in the rhinestones.

Placing the rhinestones: I applied a layer of top coat, then used tweezers to place them. You might want to apply a 2nd layer of top coat after placing the rhinestones to seal them in.
