So after digging through my entire stash of polish, I pulled out four colors to use for these rocking rocks:
- Kleancolor - Holo Chrome
- Rainbow Honey Nail Lacquer - The Worst Possible Thing
- China Glaze - Are You Jelly?
- Zoya - Peterhof Palace
Surprisingly, this isn't hard to create at all! First, I used Glitter Off (the OPI peel-off base coat) because I knew I'd have way too much glitter on my nails to take off without a peeling base coat. Then, I painted the center part of my nails with Holo Chrome. It was perfect because it was slightly sheer. Then I used Are You Jelly? to get the right color of the amethyst, then layered a little The Worst Possible Thing over the top, giving it a real gem look. Finally, I outlined each nail with Peterhof Palace, being slightly sloppy to keep it "organic".
Thanks for the suggestion girls, it turned out fabulous!
One of my favorite parts of this was the removal. Remember how I used that Glitter Off base coat? Well when I peeled off the layers, I had little leftover amethyst stones! I liked them so much I framed them.
Is this something y'all would like to see as a tutorial? Let me know in the comments!
