Sailor Moon French

The new Sailor Moon series is coming up and after seeing all of the different colors and shapes of the nail art gems and rhinestones, I immediately thought of the Sailor Senshi's (scouts) tiaras. I made on representing each inner planet in order of the theme song...Venus, Mercury, Mars, and Jupiter. Moon is on my thumb and while I know hers is red, all I had were the clear crystal ones. I thought it fit since she is the moon crystal princess.

The base polish is Snow Flakes by Color Club and the gold is Sally Hansen Golden-I.

How shiny is that top coat?! It's Out the Door. I never realized how shiny it was until I did a french mani with it. It really shows on the plain nail. With color it never looks this glossy. But I still love it.

Pastel Rain

I picked up some nail gems and rhinestones from an ebay store because I have not used them before, so I thought they would look nice on these! Also Sally's is having a buy 2 get 1 free sale on all polishes so what better time to pick up the 3 glitters from the pastel rain Finger Paints collection. I also used the City Flourish collection by China Glaze.

Sorry for the photo quality, I had super shaky hands trying to capture this. Anyway, the colors are Spring in My Step (light pink), At Vase Value (light blue), and Grass is Lime Greener, topped with A Pink of Pixie, Crystal Springs, and Shower with Flowers. The gems were easy to apply while the polish was wet and top coat glided over them nicely to stay put. They don't budge unless you really apply force.

Here is a link to the eBay seller that has a huge selection of gems and other accessories for nails:
