Girly Pearly

What is it about one new nail polish that can totally change your style? This happens to me sometimes, I just get completely hung up on one nail polish and it dominates my manicures for a week or two until I move on to something else. Well at the moment it's this light, girly pink... Sally Hansen Crinolin.
As predicted, my New Years mani didn't last until the New Year! These are the nails I was actually wearing come the stroke of midnight.




My base colour is Sally Hansen Crinolin. The pearls are from Born Pretty Store and I used Rimmel Urban Princess as my base on that finger. The pink purple glequins are also from Born Pretty. The glitter on my middle finger is Sally Hansen Razzle Dazzler.
The studs I used are from NPW* and they come in a little packet of 5 colours. I just want to give them a little shout out because they're the cheapest caviar beads I know of that you can pick up on the UK high street at £2.50 for the pack. NPW products are available in Topshop, Accessorize and New Look stores.
I didn't add a topcoat to the studded nails before these pictures in case the colour ran but I did top coat them after the pictures were taken and the colour stayed stuck to the studs. With a top coat, they even survived a night of partying and lasted until I removed the manicure earlier today.

  3. Woah, great mani! I cannot fathom the work that goes into it, the symmetry alone must take quite a while. My hand is never steady enough to place the pearls or glequins that accurately...respect!

    All the best for 2013, health and happiness for you and your loved ones!

  12. Gorgeous! I LOVE the Razzle Dazzler polish - May I ask where you bought it from? All of your manicures are beautiful, thanks for the inspiration to try something a little more adventurous than my usual 1-shade-10-nails attempts ;)

  15. This happens to me all the time as well. I get obsessed with one polish and it's the only one I want to wear for about two weeks. I love how girly this is. I'm not a girly mani person either but this is adorable.

  30. Wow! I think Lilo, above, said it best. This must take a lot of work. The mani is gorgeous and reminds me of petits fours and Chanel at the same time. Stunning! You have amazing skills.

  41. Hi! Love this mani...well, actually, I love most of your manis! I'm curious about something on this page though. You say, "The studs I used are from NPW* ..." The NPW is a link but the asterisk (*) is not. Since an asterisk usually indicates a footnote or disclaimer or more information or something like that, I looked and looked for what the asterisk was pointing to but couldn't find anything. I love the studs and the set of them is delectable. But was the asterisk just a slip of the finger or was there more you had to add about NPW? Thanks! Delphi
