Harlekwins

Sorry this ain't no tutorial - as promised it is coming this week, just not today. I've had these little diamond glequins just as long as the hexagonal ones but at the time I saw so much potential in the hexes that these got swept under the rug and neglected until now. I know I say this too often but I love this manicure! Since the new year I've really done a u-turn and these days I can't get enough pink. I blame the Avant Garden collection! The diamond glequins are available from Born Pretty Store here (#5) and I can see myself investing in a couple more colours very soon.



I used China Glaze Pink-ie Promise as my base colour and applied the glequins, which are from Born Pretty Store (colour #5), in a harlequin pattern using this method. Finally I topped it off with one coat of Seche Vite.

  12. You were one of the first nail blogs I started religiously follow. So I'm blaming you for my obsession.

    I love this manicure, the pink is the perfect shade for you, and I never would have thought to use the diamond 'glequins' like this! :)
