Feeling Fae


I've been reading a lot of fairy themed books lately (yes...I read fantasy...law school made me do it), so when I saw these iridescent gemstone studs, I wanted to do something fae related.  I've also been wanting to use these fairy stamped designs by +Bundle Monster, so this was the perfect opportunity.

Gemstone StudsI received the Water Drop Gemstone Studs from Born Pretty Store in exchange for an honest review.  The faceted studs come in black or white, and have iridescent flakes inside.  I chose white for a softer look, but the black looks dramatic and stunning as well.  I like that the iridescentness isn't overpowering and you just get a little glint here and there like a real gemstone.  They are quite large, but I'm not one to be deterred from big 3D elements on my nails, so I like it.  It makes for a great feature nail on my shorter nails.

I only have the one pictorial photo with this tutorial because I changed my design halfway through.  Initially I was going to have a white nail with iridescent glitter, but I didn't like it, so the how-to pics with that nail had to get scraped.  But the design is pretty straight forward, so hopefully my directions suffice.  To create this look:
  1. Apply the base colors - pinky in white, the rest in Let Me Go.  The Sinful Color polish is an iridescent pink with blue undertones, so it fit with my fairy theme.
  2. Add a iridescent purple stud to the base of the pinky.
  3. Use white stamping polish to stamp the dandelions (BM-615) on the middle finger and thumb, and the fairy from the same plate, on the index finger.
