Polish Days: Bling!

It's that time again! December's Polish Days theme is "Bling". I was super excited when Hannah sent out the e-mail for this. So many possibilities...Usually that is not a good thing for me since I tend to become paralyzed by the cornucopia of choices, but I immediately had an design idea that I wanted to try. This is my very first time using rhinestones on my nails which is just plain weird considering how much I love studs and microbeads. It's very rare (at least for me, anyway) for design to come out exactly the way you I picture them, but this one did and I'm really happy with the end result.

I started with two coats of OPI Pink  Panda-monium. This is probably my favorite pink polish. Such a soft pretty color. I then added a coat of Seche Vite. While my top coat was still tacky I diiped the pointy end of my orange stick into top coat and it to my nails. I then placed the stones and pearls on the dots of top coat and pressed down lightly. Finally, I added a another coat of SV to  my nails to secure the stones in place.
