NOTD: Pastel Rainbow with Pearls and Rhinestones

♫ Yes933 online radio

A few days back, I received something that I had bought from eBay several weeks ago and have been eagerly anticipating its arrival ever since. It was enclosed in a small bubble wrap envelope, but would enable me to make a big difference to my nail art adventures. (๑>◡<๑)

I managed to get this for $1.99 (approx RM 7.50) and it contains 12 different colours of 1.5mm round glitter rhinestones. The best part is that it comes in a plastic pillbox-like case that has 12 individual compartments for each colour, which makes it much more convenient to pick out the tiny rhinestones compared to the usual wheel case type (like the pearl wheel below; also bought from eBay).

So, after removing my purple gradient white leopard manicure, I decided to revisit and upgrade an all-time favourite - pastel rainbow nails!

It's actually very simple. Just pick 5 pastel colours of your choice, paint 3/4 of each nail (it doesn't have to be very neat, but I used ring reinforcement stickers to get a nice half-moon curve), then arrange the pearls and rhinestones along the border. You can use nail glue or top coat to stick them on, then seal everything with a good layer of top coat.

This blue nail is my favourite combo (≧∇≦)
It's really easy, and if you don't have so many different coloured rhinestones and pearls, you can always get a packet of silver glitter rhinestones and white/ivory pearls. You can use them for everything, because they match with practically every nail colour you can think of!
