Winter Gems Nails

For this design I wanted to use lots of rhinestones. I started by painting all my nails in 2 coats of a baby blue shade.

Next I took a makeup sponge and a blue fine shimmery glitter. I used the sponge to apply this to the tips of the nails in a thin sort of gradient effect.

Next I used a clear polish as a glue to stick down my rhinestones. On the index and small finger nails, I applied 1 single tiny rhinestone in the middle of the top of the nail.

On the thumb, middle and ring fingers, I placed a half circle line of rhinestones at the tops of each nail. This line went from a larger sized rhinestone in the center to smaller sized rhinestones at either side. I used a total of 7 rhinestones on each nail.

On the thumbs I lined up the largest rhinestone with the centre of the nail, but on the others I lined up the centre rhinestone with the top corners of the nail. This gave the effect that the half circles were facing each other on the middle and ring fingers.
