NOTD: Stamping and Rhinestones

Hello ladies.  Sorry this post is a little later in the afternoon than you are used to.  Tyler and I went shopping earlier today and I am just getting around to blogging now 🙂  I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend so far!
So yesterday I showed you Julep Sienna, a beautiful “white gold” shimmer that I think will be great for the Christmas holiday season.  When I wore it a few weeks ago, I decided that it needed something a little extra.  And I also wanted to do some stamping so I did 🙂

For this I used Julep Sienna as my base colour.  Then, with Konad Special Polish Black, I stamped on the crisscross design from plate #M79.  Then with Jordana Black I freehanded some French tips 🙂  Then, because I wanted to try out some rhinestones, and because I only had round ones in green, I applied them to the big dots of the stamp design on my ring and thumb nails.  With a fairly thick layer of top coat, these puppies were NOT coming off!  🙂
I found myself petting my nails while wearing the rhinestones 🙂  It was kinda weird and I’m sure if anyone saw me doing it they thought I was nuts!  I love using the rhinestones and love what they add to nail art 🙂  Maybe the colour combination isn’t the greatest, but I have some clear/silver ones now so I can use those for something like this rather than green 😉
Do you guys use rhinestones?  Do you like the look of them or are they too much for you?

  1. I have used the Konad “Special Polish” for this, but any polish that is on the thicker side (Sally Hansen Insta Dris) work as well 🙂 I always make sure to clean my plate with remover between every nail to make sure the design is clean 🙂
