I've been seeing a trend recently on Pinterest and on other blogs that I've been dying to try - rainbow rhinestones. Typically I've been seeing them on black, or matte black, but I wasn't really feeling the black vibe with it being summer and all. I'll have plenty of time for my dark polishes when fall arrives - especially Halloween!
So, I did rainbow rhinestones on white polish instead. I used a simple one: Wet n Wild's French White Creme. I used two coats, but applied the second coat on one nail at a time. I did this so that I could place the rhinestones in the wet nail polish on each nail before they dried.
I got tons of rhinestones on eBay. I recently featured some in my giveaway, so maybe the winners can have some inspiration with this manicure! I haven't done anything with the rhinestones I bought until now, so I'm really excited to have finally gotten to use them.
I'm incredibly happy with how this turned out. I placed the rhinestones individually, beginning with red on each nail tip. Since my nails are different lengths (pinky is much smaller than my middle!) some have more than others, but I thought they would look more uniform and flow nicer if they all matched at the tip instead of at the cuticle.
As for placing each rhinestone, I used pointed tweezers. It was a lot easier than I had anticipated! I didn't apply a top coat (no Seche Vite this time) so the polish took a while to dry though. As you can see, I managed to mess up a spot on my middle finger while taking photos! Ah well, they still look great!
