Rainbow French Manicure

Wednesday, 22 August 2012

I noticed on Kayla Shevonne's blog last week that she did a lovely manicure with rainbow rhinestones, really simple but looked lovely.  I have kind of based my idea on this, and gone for black tips, with rainbow rhinestones.  Dead simple to do, and I'm pretty pleased with it.  It is quite a challenge though to get my nail base looking any kind of natural pink, as it's so ridiculously stained from wearing polish all the time!  I used a couple of Rimmel polishes for french manicures for the base, Kiko black for the tips, then top coat, and quick application of the rhinestones, with another layer of topcoat on top (to properly cement them on!).

I found it much easier to get all the rhinestones and lay them out in piles by each colour in colour order to make sure that I could get them put onto my nails before the top coat dried.

  1. I love these, they look so cute! Good work on covering your staining, there is no way I could wear a lovely neutral base like that at the moment. :(

    1. :-( poor mouldy nails, you can kind of see the orange tone that starts half way up the nail, and two nails are mouldy green too but it has grown half out now :-) nice!

  2. I love rhinestones and this is a great way to use them. The rainbow colour scheme against black looks very striking :) xx
