a england Galahad and nail art!

Hi loves! Last Wednesday I mentioned something about unedited pictures, well today I have the second set I didn't post before. It involves some fun nail art and with all the reviews lately I hope you'll enjoy this look!

For this look I started with a base of a england Galahad. I still adore this teal beauty and the creamy formula that comes with it. 2 easy coats are all I needed! After it dried, I grabbed China Glaze DV8 and some scotch tape, and taped off the bottom part of my nails creating a straight "moon". China Glaze DV8 is very opaque so it was easy to layer over Galahad. Also, those 2 have the exact same shade of teal! They match perfectly.. must try some tone on tone stamping soon!

After the "moons" dried, I grabbed my gold marquise shaped studs from Born Pretty Store (10% off using code DELJ61) and placed them over the lines I just created. Use a thick layer of topcoat to seal them in and all done.

While I liked the combination of shades and the gold studs, I think a bigger color block with China Glaze DV8 would have been better. Now it wasn't even that visible in dim lighting because the shade is so close to a england Galahad! But oh well, you win some, you lose some right ;-)?

  1. I've never been into that kind of studs shapes but the way you used them in this manicure does make me want to buy some ^^. Gold and teal is always a good combo ;)

  2. Galahad is a beautiful turquoise. As for the studs, they look good in this mani but I'm not a big fan of them.
