Starry Sky

Today was my first time working with rhinestones - I had bought a small packet of 2 1/2 mm and 2 mm rhinestones from A.C. Moore the other week. It was a bit pricey from there, but I wasn't ready to order the 1000+ packs that are much cheaper online yet. I used two 2 mm and one 2 1/2 mm on each ring finger. I thought the 2 1/2 mm was a little too big for this particular manicure, but I could see a really cool completely blinged-out nail using that size. I really liked working with rhinestones so I may buy one of the bigger rhinestone wheels!

I used one coat of CND Stickey Base Coat, two coats of China Glaze Rodeo Fanatic, one coat of China Glaze Techno, then applied rhinestones to the ring finger nails only, two coats of China Glaze Wireless Holographic Top Coat, and finished with one coat Seche Vite.
