Nail Love: Dots and Rhinestones!!

Yesterday, I removed my nail polish. Now I know that doesn't sound too exciting...but the thing that amazed me was the length of time that the nail polish stayed on AND looked good! Minimal chipping - hardly noticeable at all! It feels like I haven't worn a nail polish that has that sort of 'staying power' in a long time.... 

Here's a photo of my nail polish look that stayed on for FIVE days (and I believe it could've stayed on longer - except I wanted a change!!)

I've had so many compliments on this look! It's simple to do, and looks fantastic!  The nail polish I used for the base was Sinful Colors Mint Apple, while the nail polishes I used for the dots were Sephora by OPI Teal We Meet Again and Avon Mystic!

Another look I just created involved my dotting tool AND rhinestones this time! I've been wanting to use my nail tools and nail art in different ways...This is what I came up with!

This picture is BEFORE I added rhinestones...

With rhinestones for more jazz!

That nail polish that I used for the accent finger and french tips was OPI Ogre-The-Top Blue, the glitter polish was Sinful Colors Suede Shoes and the dots are OPI Fiercely Fiona and OPI Yoga-ta Get This Blue! I also chose blue and yellow rhinestones to place over the dots on my accent finger - these are completely optional!

I did start with only three rhinestones on my accent finger...but I felt it looked lopsided, so I just continued to place them on until the whole nail was covered! 

I hope you like these looks!

  1. I'm telling you, the Sinful Colors are awesome. They are unbelievably inexpensive, but are really great polishes. I'm glad you got some when you ordered the LA Art Deco polishes. Which Sinful Colors did your order? Can't remember. I'll be on the lookout for more if you like them. They aren't quite $2 here! I'm not surprised at how long they lasted on your nails. Now you see why I love them. Btw, love the rhinestones!!
