Artsy Wednesday - Crystals

Hey everyone! Today is AW and this week's theme is crystals! I decided to use some more of my crystals/sequins I bought off eBay. The base colour is 1 coat of Sally Hansen - Barracuda* (review in tomorrow's post!) and the rhinestones were bought here. I used nail glue to stick them onto my nails. Nail glue comes off very easily with nail polish remover/ acetone so don't freak out if it looks all weird on your nails! I love the way these rhinestones catch the light and show their holographic shine!

Check out all the other crystal nails by these lovely ladies!

  1. Cute :) I usually use topcoat to secure my rhinestones on my nails. I have fake nails, so I'm not sure if that's why using glue is much harder for me to remove? lol

    1. Hey Maddy! I used to use top coat to secure my rhinestones too - but noticed they just fell off way to quickly for me! Yep! Because you have acrylics/gels if you use nail polish remover/acetone it will start to wear off the actual nail - plus nail polish in general lasts sooooo much longer on acrylics or gels compared to natural nails so that's probably why it lasts so well with regular top coat! I'm jealous of that! haha :)

  2. Whoha, those are some serious crystals - and seriously pretty too :)
