NOTD: Pearl Leaf Nail Art

Wednesday, August 17, 2011






For these nails I used Clear Stiletto nail tips from So Nails, large glitter in Pearl Leaf from Le Chat nails, iriesierend crystals from Abc nail store, body glitter from Icingpink acrylic powder and acrylic liquid from Star nails.
L-R Abc nails tore Crystals, Icing body glitter and Abc 
Tip: Do not embed crystals in acrylic as this makes them loose their shine. Instead stick them on the surface of the nail. The end result will not be flat but you won't loose the beauty of the crystals. I learnt the hard way so you don't have to :-)

First I stuck the tips on, cut and shaped them. Then I stuck the crystals on with nail glue and applied the glitter to the middle of my nail tips using acrylic powder and liquid to hold them in place.
After the design was done I covered my entire nail with acrylic powder and liquid.
File to shape and buff to a shine...
I don't like this nail design, I'll probably paint over them soon. The design looked so much better in my head LOL. What do you think?

TTFN!
