~ these gems surprised me, I did not even think I would use them ~
BASE = 2 coats of Wet n' Wild 'Sapphire Blue' with 2 coats of Nailene Acrylic Strong
SPONGE = Billie French White
EMBELLISHMENTS = Nailene Bedazzle #71042
HEX GLITTER = 'Stampendous' Brand
FINISH with a thick coat of Nailene Acrylic Strong Top Coat
Dang - I got so into doing my nails that I forgot to take photos of the step by step processes. Basically it is what I wrote up there. I started with a base of 2 coats of Wet n' Wild 'Sapphire Blue', followed by Nailene Acrylic Strong Top Coat, I sponged on Billie 'French White', and when that was dry, I applied the Nailene Bedazzle gems ( set # 71042 ) they are very small, but have a wide area of 'backing' on them so they are easy to pick up.... I applied these 3 different sized gems in random areas of my nails. My right hand does not look as pretty as my left hand.
The clear backing from these Nailene Gems are visible in macro mode, and if your fingers are like less than 5 inches from your face= but they disappear on the nail, they are not as noticeable in real life.. It looks neat in my first photo up there. All my photos are indoors, under fluorescent lighting.
