top secret confession time


6 hours after doing this fabulous nail art and before I fell asleep I picked off all these rhinestones so when I woke up there was a few stuck to my arms & two on my neck- ( I put them in an empty gum wrapper  lol ).... I loooooove how this looks, and try to do nail art like this at least every month = but I have a compulsion to pop these off shortly after I apply them! Am I twisted or what?

For this mani I started with a base of Claire's Matte Grey. This is one of my all time favorites = it dries sooooooo fast and is usually a careful 2 coater. I added a coat of TC and pressed these random sized rhinestones into the wet top coat. They hung on perfectly save for a few I knocked off the wet polish ( index nail ).




 I picked most of these off some scrapbook stickers that I picked up at my local dolar store

Love this! I like big ol' glittery rhinestone manis, they're the only kind of 3D mani (besides studs, just not a fan of fimo etc) that I like. I tend to like to have something in my hands to fiddle with a lot but luckily for me picking off rhinestones isn't a compulsion I get! I enjoy looking at them too much! So I guess it's just a staring problem haha

Love it! I haven't been able to muster up the patience for a mani like this. IT's great though!

I have the same problem! I done one all over my thumb in the england flag, and on the day of the jubilee i ended up peeling the whole lot off haha!

Still beautiful!
