Good afternoon everyone! Hope you are having a good day. I am luckily having a better day than yesterday, so I felt up to trying out a Fashion Friday nail art challenge! Out of my stack of inspiration pages (torn out of Elle magazines), I decided to give this one a shot:
I used Sinful Colors Rise & Shine for the green, OPI Solitaire for the diamonds. I had a bit of trouble finding a gold color in my stash to use for the gold jewelry, so I ended up using OPI Oy Another Polish Joke.
Then I realized it wouldn’t matter if I mattified it because I’d be putting a top coat on (durrrr). I didn’t take step by step pictures, but after that dried, I used a small nail brush to make a Rise & Shine circle on each nail, then using a dotting tool, I made smaller circles with Solitaire, then using the dotting tool again, made Rise & Shine dots around the perimeter. It all was topped off with 2 coats of Seche Vite:
Things I would have done differently: I would have liked to have a base color closer to what gold jewelry looks like; I would have also made all the circles smaller, so that I could have made the perimeter emeralds look more like jewel shapes instead of dots. If you have suggestions for what you would have done differently, or a suggestion for a gold-toned nail polish, let me know in the comments! Otherwise, what do you think? I hope you have a good rest of the day, as always,
