Pink Wednesday: rhinestone bows

Hello lacquered lovelies! Happy hump day! I did some nails on Monday night that I knew would be perfect for Pink Wednesday so I knew I had to share them with you. They only lasted a day but I quite liked them... I hope you do too! If you follow me on Instagram (that's a link for the web interface of Instagram) you've already seen a cell phone (and edited to look all ~*~artsy~*~) photo of this one. :) I post pictures of my manicures on there pretty often... I try to do it every day. I'm only just getting into the swing of Instagram but if you want, you can follow me there! I'm just glittagloves of course :) And leave me your usernames if you want - I'm looking for new people to follow!

I started out with three coats of Nicole by OPI Kim-pletely in Love. Barftastic name aside, I do quite like this polish. It's a baby pink with shimmer that flashes aqua and hot pink in some lights. It's quite gorgeous. Even if it is associated with that vile family haha. After I applied the third coat on my ring fingers and thumbs, I added little black rhinestones around a light purple rhinestone to make bows. You guys know I'm obsessed with bows haha. It was slow going (I'm blind and clumsy on the best of days so I kept losing the damn rhinestones) but I was happy with the result. I used Essie To Dry For as a topcoat, since I knew I wouldn't be keeping them on more than a day. If I had intended to keep the manicure longer I would've gone for something thicker, probably China Glaze Fast Forward. :)

A lady at the bus stop was very concerned and kept asking me how I avoided getting the rhinestones caught on things. Kind of adorable. She was scared they'd get caught in my hair too... which they did haha. But I still liked them!

What do you lovelies think? Have you done any super girly princess manicures lately?

Thanks for reading! Have a beautiful day!
