Rhinestones galore!

I can’t believe we’ve made it to the last day of the Pre-Spring Challenge! Day 14 is “Recreate” so I’m recreating a favorite look from the other challenge participants. Eeeek Nail Polish submitted this for our “Jewelry” theme and it is just stunning as have been all her manis! Check out her blog here!

I went with a dark plum color so mine would be a bit different. I used rhinestones from born pretty store and the top coat fuzzed a bit but it is still glittery and pretty! My nails aren’t as long so the spacing does look the same but I think they turned out quite nice. I am proud of myself for doing a good job with even spacing. It’s pretty and I received several compliments on it today. 🙂 I’m so glad I was able to participate in this challenge with these ladies! Everyone did a grey job! thank you Mommy Loves Polish and Polish Alcoholic for hosting this challenge. ! Check out all the manicures! My next challenge for myself will be to make my light box and up the quality of pics!

For my version, I used
24k – Raspberry
BPS Rhinestones

Mango shake

I’m pulling this manicure from a few months back for a nail art challenge since I’m joining late in the game. Pre-spring Nail art Challenge

The first day’s theme is yellow, and I HATE yellow on me so I couldn’t bring myself to do another manicure. I only own one yellow at the moment so maybe in the future I will find a magic yellow that I can fall in love with. For this look I used
Klik – Mango shake
Chic – Silky White
I also used a dotting tool, white striping tape and rhinestones which I bought cheap off eBay and a straight pin for the flowers on the thumbs.

While I don’t really love this look it was my very first skittle manicure and I was trying to think outside the box and go out of my comfort zone. 🙂 [Update: My good friend Jemma recreated this mani in a beautiful sea foam green.]
