After wearing Zoya Godiva almost every day since it arrived, I decided I needed to spice it up a little bit with some simple nail art. For this look I'm trying a simple strip down the center of my nail with a little bling.
I started with Zoya Nyx, dabbing a line down the center of each of my nails. On either side of that line I painted Zoya Godiva to frame Nyx. I repeated this process one to two times more in order to reach an opaque finish that showed no visible nail line.
While the polish was still wet I dropped a silver rhinestone near my cuticles in the center of Nyx to add a little extra sparkle. I was hoping the incredibly slow drying time of the PixieDust polishes would help to anchor the rhinestone in place. And help it did! The rhinestones pushed down through the color and the sidewalls of the rhinestones were held in place by the polish. When the rhinestones popped off, a hole could be seen in the polish straight to my base coat.
While sparkly and awesome, this manicure wins the "Most Annoying Manicure" award of the year! Poor rhinestones didn't even last twenty-four hours before I popped them off; the texture overload on my nails was too much for me to bear.
What are your thoughts on rhinestones?
