Hi everyone! The mani I have to show you today was inspired by a pin I found on Pinterest. Unfortunately Liloo’s blog isn’t in English, but there sure are pretty pictures to look at and a picture was all I needed for inspiration. I decided to use different colours and I did not have enough clear rhinestones to make it look the same, so I replaced them with studs. This is my version:
I started off with my usual Tip Top base coat to protect my natural nails. I painted 3 coats of Nubar Treasure on all of my nails. Nubar isn’t a brand we get consistently over here, so when I do spot them in Clicks I pick up whatever I like because I’m never sure when I will find them again. I really like Nubar polishes, I haven’t had a bad experience with them yet. Treasure is a light purple scattered holographic polish. It seems extremely sheer when you paint it, but it builds up really well. On my ring nail I used Tip Top Purple Bow Peep and the polish brush to add the creme on the tip. I just freehanded it. Once it was a little tacky I started placing 1 mm gold studs I purchased from Born Pretty Store (purchase here*) along the line dividing the polishes. When I got to the middle I added a 2 mm stud and then continued with the 1 mm studs. I sealed everything in with a coat of Seche Vite.
I really loved this mani! The Nubar wore really well and I loved the soft purple that came alive in the sun.
What do you think of this mani? Do you think I did the original justice? I would love to hear your opinion in the comments below.
Thanks for reading!
