Pinterest Week - Matte Black & Rainbow Rhinestones

Hey everyone!

Welcome to Day 2 of Pinterest Week!

You all know that I have a slight obsession with rainbow manicures, so it's no surprise that today I have a recreation of a rainbow design for you. This design is really simple and anyone of any nail art skill level can do it, but it still looks really cool and unique!

Here's a link to my pin for this design, and here's the link to the original source.


My base colour is China Glaze Liquid Leather and I picked rainbow coloured rhinestones out of a rhinestone wheel that I got on eBay. I adhered them with just a little top coat and then I matted the whole design using Joe Fresh Matte Top Coat.


Since my nails are a bit longer than the ones in the original design, I chose larger rhinestones so that there wouldn't be any empty space leftover on my nails. This worked out pretty perfectly save for the pinky finger which was just a hair too small for all six rhinestones. I still managed to fit them all on, though!


I hope that you all liked today's design! And be sure to check back tomorrow for another Pinterest recreation!
