Nail The Week: Nude With Stars!

No, not a celeb magazine headline, but a simple, chic and (almost) work-appropriate Nail the Week Mani! I created this look with my Barry M Lychee (which is currently running dangerously low; a testament to its versatility) and some tiny star nail sequins from Inglot. I applied the stars with a small dotting tool after adding my second coat of Lychee and added a good dose of fast-drying top coat to make sure they stayed in place.

My biggest concerns over this mani were that the stars would be very fiddly to apply and would fall off in five seconds, but luckily both of these worries were unfounded. It was very easy to apply the stars and any dents I made in the polish from moving them around slightly were easily smoothed out with top coat. They also stayed tightly in place until it was time for my next mani.

I’ll definitely be using these stars again, especially as you get about a million per pot! I’m hatching grand ideas of a silver or glitter base for a party look or a stark white base (possibly with a matte top coat) for a trendy monochrome effect.

The materials I used for this look are:

-Sally Hansen Diamond Strength Base Coat

-Barry M Gelly Hi Shine in Nail Paint in Lychee

-Black Star Nail and Body Spangles by Inglot

-Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Top Coat

-Dotting Tools (not pictured)
