Dandy in Pink

This bit of nail art is very simple, but I really rather liked it! It is just two color-matched textured matte polishes, and some rhinestones. Unfortunately, half the rhinestones fell off overnight and the last few fell off a day later. Hence the…um…gradual loss in the photo progression 🙂


The base for this is a pretty medium pink matte and slightly textured polish called Cocciopesto my Mentality (I have NO IDEA how to pronounce that name. But its fun to spell!). Shown here is two coats.


I then added striping tape and painted on Make Him Mine by OPI, and some rhinestones. My inspiration for this came from a random pinterest pin…which I sadly appear not to have saved in any way (sorry original poster! Whoever you are! It was purple).


The rhinestones on my middle fingers fell off very quickly, and I have to say I rather liked the art better WITHOUT them. Then after the second day (which is to say before the sun came out) the ones on my pointer and pinky fell off…so the only sun photo has no glittery bits!


The other sad happening was my thumb breaking. Twice. In one day. Science + long nails = bad. Oops!


If you want to play with some pretty pink textured polish you can purchase Cocciopesto here for $6.75. The rest of the collection can be found here. And don’t forget, free US shipping!

  1. I really like your mani…definitely simple and sweet. I too broke my thumb nail so I feeling your pain!

    • thanks! and i’m sorry. Honestly, thumbnail-breakage is slightly ok in that it doesn’t have to feature in all the photos…but it hurt!
