NOTD - Nude Chic Revlon + Nail Art


Thought I would show you a normal NOTD and abit of Nail Art in one today.
I decided to go for mannequin nails today which Nude Chic by Revlon is perfect for, as it's totally opaque with 2 coats.

I kept my nails like this till lunchtime then decided to put one little pearl at the bottom of each nail..but I then got abit carried away and ended up with a full thumb nail of rhinestones! 



My thumb did take awhile to do - about 15 minutes , but it was pretty easy to do. It also didn't take anything to specialist either. I just used a top coat to act as the glue and a wooden pick. I did plan to cover the whole of my thumb nail with clear rhinestones however I ran out. 

For the thumb nail I firstly painted it with WOW from the Hot Looks Collection by Collection 2000 to make the gaps in the rhinestones less obvious as it's a silver colour. 
I then used the top of the nail as a guide to do the first row of rhinestones.
Then continued in rows. Simple. 



I never really use to like nail art that much however I am really growing to like the creativity of it. It's also quite a relaxing process if you don't do anything too taxing!



Ofcourse like always I would love to know what you think.

I don't think I'll ever manage any nail art. I struggle to keep my polish chip free for a day! I absolutely love that varnish colour. I don't think I've spotted that before, I'm going to have to investigate now!
