Happy Pink Wednesday! For this manicure I used two new-to-me nail polishes and it was my first time using rhinestones on my nails. Many firsts here :)
I'd ordered the M.A.S.H. twelve color rhinestone wheel in January but hadn't really found an application to use the rhinestones. Suffice to say, I'm going to try and incorporate rhinestones into a lot more manicures - I love how this looks!
This is three coats of Essie A Crewed Interest stamped with Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in Presto Pink using Bundle Monster plate BM-224. I'm not really pleased with the formula on A Crewed Interest: it just doesn't cover well. It's opaque, but incredibly streaky. I probably should have done a fourth coat of it because there were still patchy areas, but since I was stamping I just went with the three. Formula issue aside, I LOVE wearing this. I love that the colors have high contrast (for being in the same color group) and I love the sparkle of the rhinestones.
To adhere the rhinestones I'd added a drop of Presto Pink where I wanted to place the gem and then used a tweezers to lower the rhinestone into place. I added a thick layer of Seche Vite to keep everything together and so far it's holding up great!
