Hello gorgeous! Tonight on the blog, I have one of the coolest manicures I've ever attempted - rhinestone v-gap nails - using super sparkly Swarovski crystals from Born Pretty!

Born Pretty was nice enough to send me some gorgeous Swarovski Flatback crystals to review. Born Pretty is located overseas so it did take about a month to receive them, not that I minded - I needed as much time as I could get to come up with something cool but it's something to keep in mind when ordering from them. Other than that, I received amazing customer service! Born Pretty has so many nail art supplies from studs and rhinestones to tape and brushes! 

Color: Clear Crystal (001)
Quantity:144pcs 1Gross : 144 pcs
Size: SS 5 (Approx. 1.8mm-1.9mm)

How'd I do it? Super easy. 
1.) First I painted my nails with OPI DS Extravagance (Side note: Can I just say how beautiful this color is? Will definitely be doing a separate review on that!). 
2.) Taking some striping tape, I made a slightly opened "V" on my nails. 
3.) I painted the sides the sides with Hue Square High School Crush. Once slightly dry, take off the tape.
4.) I took my dotting tool and wet the end to pick up the little rhinestones. Applying a super thin coat of top coat for the rhinestones to stick to, I started placing the rhinestones on my nail.
5.) A dry fast top coat over the rhinestones seals them in.

Born Pretty already has awesome prices ($7 for these crystals + FREE SHIPPING - say what!?) but to sweeten the deal, Daisy has given me an extra 10% code for my readers! Use NSL91 at check out to receive the discount.
