Black Diamonds

Diamonds are a girls best friend, so show your nails the same! This is the perfect way to dress up your polish. Don't know how to design (nail art), then give rhinestones a try. The look will give you instant attention.

I have to give this look a try :) How many rhinestones did you use per nail?

*Thanks amused, make sure to let me know if you post your trial. I'd like to see it :-)

*O great rm, let me know when you do. Well I didn't count the stones. I just kept layering until I ran out of space, lol.

*Tip* For this look polish nails with one coat of clear polish & start placing stones at the top of the nail (cuticle area) do not leave any open space! Continue to lay stones until you reach the bottom of the nail (free edge area).
*Nail Tech Tip* To make this easy, grab a slender orange wood stick, dip a very small amount of clear polish on the tip of the stick. Make sure your stones are "Face-Up" when picking them up. Move quickly, and start placing your stones. You can continue to dip clear polish on your brush, just make sure it a very thin coat.

*Good Luck Everybody*

I love this! Did it take a terribly long time?

I wanted to try something similar, but on the whole hand, and only on the tips using with those little silver beads.

Thanks Chaos. No it didn't take long at all. It is a little tedious if you want to be neat though.
The beads should look very nice-depending on the shape/length of your nails. I've never done every nail, it can look a little gaudy. But half nail may look nice :-). Let me know when you post it, I'd like to see that.
