Pretty, Easy Nails: Super Subtle Bling

In Depth

As we talked about last time, color choice is key to nailing this look. We’re going to use polish and rhinestones, in a simple way, but the trick is to choose ones that are just barely a shade different from each other. This will create an almost imperceptible depth to your design. So chic.

In case you were wondering, my first rhinestone popped off on day four (and I have a toddler). Two more followed the next day. I could’ve easily replaced them by dotting some polish back on and sticking them where they go, but I get bored and always want to redo my polish. If you want more staying power, paint all of your nails with two coats of polish and use nail glue to adhere the stones before applying a top coat. And remember: you can always just get acrylics or gels if you don’t like spending almost zero dollars and only thirty minutes at home DIY-ing.
