Review: Born Pretty Store 2mm multi-colored Pearl Rhinestones

More nail art supplies from Born Pretty Store... today I am reviewing these adorable "pearl" 2mm rhinestones. 

As you can probably tell, this manicure was created a little while ago (since I'm back to shorties now).

The purple (although photographed blue-ish) is China Glaze What a Pansy, and the nude shade is OPI My Vampire is Buff.

I choose to use the pale purple rhinestones, and I really like how small/delicate these are :)

If you'd like to purchase for yourself you can find them HERE for $3.66USD with FREE worldwide shipping.

Turquoise Manicure Inspired by @stephstonenails

I have been ogling this look by @stephstonenails for AGES! Attempting and re-attempting it until I got it just right... or as close to right as I could :) 

This look has been recreated by other nail artists a few times, and even been featured on youtube in tutorials, but it seems some individuals had some trouble crediting the original artist. I first found this turquoise manicure in the July/August issue of Nail It Magazine. And the original artist is the amazingly talented Steph Stone herself! 

For my recreation I used Finger Paints Tiffany Imposter as my turquoise base, then stamped BM-417 using Mundo de Unas gold stamping polish...

For the black splatter I used the water spotted nail art tutorial by CutePolish using OPI Black Onyx.
And voila!

And below was the magazine feature I was initially inspired by...

Hope you love this look as much as I did! :)

Pocahontas Tribal Nail Art

I saw this awesome tribal design by @judyrox and just had to recreate it!! 

Turns out that my choice of colours actually reminds me of Pocahontas so that's a plus... 

White: OPI Alpine Snow 
Black: OPI Black Onyx
Caramel: OPI Going my way or Norway
Green: American Apparel Malibu Green

Details were freehanded using a small nail art brush.

Get Cherried Away with Stamping

See what I did there?

OPI Get Cherried Away
Stamped with Pueen-61 and Mundo de Unas stamping polish :)

Plain and simple for today, this look was actually done a few weeks ago... I've got a few looks in the vault all ready to go since this is the first full week of classes.
