#31Nails2014: #5 Rhinestones

Hello everyone!

The theme for day 5 is Rhinestones. And I had to ask Nails Magazine if it was OK to use these huge nail decorations. Lol! Although you can't see it behind all the foil and rhinestones, I have used some nail polish for this manicure too. First, I applied base coat, and silver nail polish, then nail glue, and nail foil, and after that I placed my stones. I hope you miss seeing tonns of photos! Lol! :-) I love photographing manicures like this. It was hard to only pick 12 photos. Which picture do you think I should share on Instagram?


If you feel some kind of Déjà vu, you have a very good memory, because although I haven't showed you this stage of this manicure before, you might have seen stage 4 (very bold sci- fi "Pepper Potts Nails" made for Polish Days in June), stage 2 (Holographic nail foil, and how to use it), and stage 1 (the beautiful silver nail polish). This is stage 3, which is without the glitter french tips.

Products used: 

IsaDora #600 Clear (fast drying base coat)
Pieces: Silver (silver foil nail polish)
N.NAIL Shiny Silver Nail Foil Transfer [NNAIL-E24] (nail foil +glue)
N.NAIL Drop Shaped Rhinestones Nail Art 6mmX8mm-Iridescent [NNAIL-DRN694] (rhinestones)
a Q- tip

What I didn't have when I made this mani, was a good top coat for nail foil. Next time I'll try Picture Polish: Revolution as top coat. It's cruelty- free, and I've heard that it works over foil without damaging it.

The nail foil, glue, and rhinestones can be bought from KKCenterHk, but the foil is sold out at the moment. If you want to buy something from KKCenterHk, feel free to use my 10% coupon code; "Nailphotos by Lani".

What's your favourite nail foil? And which of these pictures do you like best? I need help deciding which photo to share on Instagram for this Nails Magazine challenge. (I'm not on Instagram yet.)
