3D Nail Art Week - Rhinestone Cascade

Hi all! I can't believe there's only one day left for 3D Nail Art Week. I have an insane amount of ideas for putting stuff on my nails so five days just doesn't seem like enough. Today's design is very soft and pretty. 

I started with three coats of OPI Isn't That Precious. This color is very sheer. It's best for pink french manicures but I wanted that jelly-like look for the base color so it works. I then add a coat of SV. Once my nails were dry I used the pointy end of an orange stick and applied small dots of SV onto my nails. I dipped the orange stick tip into SV as well to pick up the stones and apply them. I used clear heart-shaped stones and small round clear and pink ones to create a "cascade" effect along the sides of my nails.

This is honestly what I think of when I think of 3D nail art. I think of rhinestones. Lots and lots of rhinestones. I honestly had to hold myself back a bit on this since I wanted to keep the design fairly simple. But it was hard. Maybe I'll do a design in the future where I just go cray cray with the stones.
