Over the weekend we stumbled across a cool blog where we found this be-jeweled Manicure Monday idea. The blog was called Sea Blanket.
WHAT YOU’LL NEED:
-Flat bottomed jewel crystals
-Red nail polish
-Clear nail polish
-Nail adhesive/bonding agent
-Lotion or vaseline
HOW-TO DO IT YOURSELF:
Step 1: Paint all of your nails with your red base color. Let dry for about 10 minutes.
Step 2: Dip your cotton swab into your lotion or vaseline and get a small amount on the tip. You will be using this to help you with your precise application of your crystals.
Step 3: Apply adhesive to a small portion of your nail, large enough for 4 or 5 crystals. Use your cotton swab to pick up each crystal and set onto your nail in straight lines.
Step 4: Add more glue to the untouched area of your nail and fill in with crystals. Repeat on all nails that you want jeweled and let dry for about 10 minutes.
Step 5: Once all your desired nails have been covered in crystals, apply a layer of clear nail polish or top coat to secure the crystals placement and wearability! Clear coat all of your nails.
