I'm back with the Christmas theme today. And glitter. Once again, I've brought the glitter.
This is a SUPER easy nail art tutorial which anybody can do, but you'll still manage to impress your friends with. Let's get to it.
Here's a free tip. Whenever you use rhinestones, have a cotton bud handy. It's the best applicator you'll ever get for these shiny little buggers. :)
I usually apply three coats to make it as opaque as possible, but I only applied two coats for this tutorial. I wanted it to still be kind of sheer, as I was planning a French tip. But it's entirely up to you to decide if you want to go for the same finish!!
Make sure they're stuck down firmly, because you don't want the tape to move during the next step.
Then you simply paint the other colour nail polish over the nail. I also added it to my other nails as a glitter French.
LEAVE THIS TO THOROUGHLY DRY BEFORE YOU PULL OFF THE TAPE.
I decided to add red rhinestones to the crossing points on the design. You simply apply a little glue, get the cotton bud (a wet tip works best), pick up the stone and place it on the glue.
Let it dry for a moment or two and you're done!
The smart thing to do would have been to end off with a top coat, but with a baby in the house, I don't always have time for these things. :P
Have an amazing weekend! Stay beautiful and be kind to animals,
