WNAC - Diamond Nail Art

Diamond crystal nails - so pretty :)

A little late for this WNAC but better late than never I say! :D

This was our diamond prompt under our glitz and glam theme for January and I kept it oh so very simple. I'm a simple kinda gal :)

I went a little picture crazy lol


I so happened to get my hands on this bottle of Enchanted Polish's Instant Galaxy and at first I wasn't sure if it was worth the purchase, but was super pretty once I had it on my nails over the black, especially after a top coat. <3



For the accent nail, I used a silver polish as my base and then stuck on loose crystals with a wax pencil. You can top coat the crystals to get some wear out of them but since I was only doing the design specifically for the challenge and not for real wear, I didn't top coat it. 



The crystals I used were from Edgy Polish and the wax pencil I bought on eBay. As with all glitter placements, you will want to work pretty quickly so the polish is still tacky when you are sticking the glitters on. If the polish does get too dry, use a clear polish where you are still missing glitters and place the glitters using that.



I actually really liked this simple look - the crystals were super sparkly and fun to wear.

I hope you like it! :)

Thanks so much for taking time out of your busy day to check out my little corner :) Feel free to leave me comments/suggestions/feedback below.

  1. Ooooh ... that accent nail is fabulous! I know they gems don't last quite as long without topcoat, but I do think they look more sparkly as they are. Gorgeous! :)
