Shattered in Pink

I was really intrigued by the hot pink shards in Disillusion by Cult Nails, and set about creating a hot pink and black manicure! I was aided in this pursuit by my newest acquisition: neon studs from the Born Pretty Store.


I started with two thin coats of Disillusion over one coat of black creme. When that had dried, I painted on white stripes, covered them with hot pink, and then painted black on the top border. The hot pink REALLY popped! I’m not sure if it wasn’t too bright (hehe oops) but it certainly got attention!


I finished the look using 2mm square matte pink studs. They come in a rhinestone wheel with a lot of other fun bits, which I will be showing you over the next few weeks! Suffice to say, this nail wheel is HOT (because the colors are all neon). I did not top coat the studs, to preserve the matte finish. I think this design might have also looked cool matted, but matted manis never last as long and this one had to last almost a whole week!


  • Black: Sinful Colors – Black on Black
  • Black and pink glitter: Cult Nails – Disillusion
  • White: Zoya – Purity
  • Hot pink: WOW – #371


Hope you enjoyed! You can buy your own awesome neon stud wheel at the Born Pretty Store for $3.95. Don’t forget to use my 10% off code LY5X31!
