I have been wanting to try this for months…but was loathe to cut my nails to an oval shape. Now that I have no choice, I decided to attempt Chalkboard Nails’s “Precious Gems” nail art! Her tutorial was super helpful.
I have actually done this same design on a friend of mine a good long time ago, and have not yet gotten around to posting those photos. I’m going to have to do a guest-nails post sometime soon to show you guys the art I’ve done on friends! By the time I did these on myself, I didn’t have to franken any colors, and I used almost entirely cremes (on my friend I had to mix in some shimmers). Here I think I only had 2 (my second darkest pink and purple).
The boyfriend thought they looked like rupees from Zelda, which I think is awesome! Although as far as I know there were no purple or pink rupees.
Honestly, there are wayyyy too many colors here for me to even want to try and list them all. If you are curious about a specific one let me know and I’ll tell you what it is! I am so proud of my colorful collection 😀
This is also probably one of the last super-colorful manis for a while, I am beginning to pack up in preparation for moving (last full weekend in April) and I don’t foresee digging 37 polishes (!!!!) out of their shoeboxes before I get settled in!
