These pink and silver zigzags were painted quite some time ago now, back when my nails were a bit shorter.
I used a base of piCture pOlish Allure, which is a bright magenta pink with a scattered holo. My photos don’t show the beautiful holographic effect sadly.
I teamed it with OPI This Gown Needs A Crown, probably my favourite and certainly my most used silver nail polish. It’s lovely used just as a single accent nail, or like here, as part of an overall look.
I checked back and discover that I wore this manicure back in September 2015. My nails have grown quite considerably since then, even though I am forever filing them. I like the look of them long, but prefer to wear them a bit shorter as I am always worried that I will catch and break a nail. I haven’t had a break on my “camera hand” now for ages. Certainly not this year. (I’ve probably just jinxed that now, haven’t I?!)
The silver triangular studs are from IZ Beauty, a new nail art supply store. They sell a range of items, like nail art tools, studs, rhinestones, nail art pens, nail wraps and decals. On their Instagram account, I found a code for 20% off. Just use SHOP20.
I have three of the silver studs: triangular, small circles and and small square. They come beautifully presented in cute little square boxes, branded with the IZ Beauty identity.
I also have one of the nail art tools, the gem dotter, which is a plastic tool with a rubberized end. I found it great for selecting and picking up the studs, and then placing them on the nail.
