Lavender Baroque Nails

Tuesday, 14 January 2014 - 11 Comments

Today I decided to feature one of the China Glaze Crinkled Chrome polishes as an accent nail in a nail art manicure. I mentioned in my swatch post last week that I had a feeling they would work really well as accent nails and I was right! I picked out a gorgeous lavender shade and chose the purple Crinkled Chrome to accompany it. Let’s take a look!

As a base I used China Glaze Tart-Y For The Party which is one of my favourite purple polishes and as an accent nail I used China Glaze Crush, Crush, Baby. On my middle finger I added some gold baroque stickers from Born Pretty Store. I think these are technically stickers used for decorating cards but they look gorgeous on nails too! Sadly the corners do lift a bit so make sure to use tweezers to apply these and stick them down with some top coat. I used two separate stickers and cut up a third one to fill in the gaps.

On my other two nails I used the textured studs again (I’m obsessed!) and some small 1.2mm gold studs, though they somehow look silver next to the vibrant gold textured studs. I wasn’t really sure what design to paint on my pointer and pinkie at first, I probably did about three designs before settling for the studs… When in doubt, add studs! :D They always seem to make things look better.

You can find the baroque stickers at Born Pretty Store here, the textured studs here and the small round studs here. Make sure to use my code EMILYW21 for a 10% discount if you order. :)

I hope you like this look! Let me know in the comments what you think!

  • Purple and gold is my favorite color combo! Both the stickers and studs add a royal look to this mani.
