Mani Monday: Shine Bright Like a Diamond

By  | 

When friend and fellow blogger, the lovely Corner Curl Girl posted this picture on Instagram I was immediately head over heels for this color:

OPI 'I Have a Herring Problem' from the Holland Collection

It's like a winter wonderland in a bottle, all cool blue and shimmery.

The color looks equally awesome on. Of course I can't just polish my nails… Always doing the most.

Being a huge fan of anything sparkly, I decided that this color (or any color for that matter) would go perfectly with some Swarovski Elements.

Here’s the finished product:

 It was simple to do. Polish nails, allow to dry, then use nail glue to affix crystals to nails in no particular pattern while avoiding gluing your fingers together. That’s pretty much it.

Until next time…

    i just got a set of nail polish colors and a nail dryer at a recent gift exchange. Looking forward to following your instructions to shine this holiday season.

      Ooh! Sounds like an awesome gift. Come back and share your mani pics πŸ™‚

  3. I am so boring! I don’t even paint my nails. *hangs head*
    However, this is CUTE!!!

    Iced finger tips without being cold. Good job!

  5. Your nails look so cute. Love the crystals.

  6. I don’t polish my finger nails because they chip so easily and quickly, but I love pedicures. I might try this idea on toes!

  7. Oooh…very pretty!!! I love the color and the designs are perfect for the holiday season!

    I think I just might paint my nails (something I haven’t done since 2011) and get my bling-a-ling on

  9. I am so hating on the rhinestones… lol. πŸ˜‰

  10. I have bought so many bottles of nail polish but then I never paint my nails :/ Can you recommend a good fast drying topcoat?

    • T. Espi


      Seche Vite has a really good fast drying top coat but it can cause shrinkage (nail polish receding from the base or tip of the nail). OPI’s topcoat isn’t necessarily fast drying but it’s a really good one for long lasting mani’s. Quick dry drops work really well too.

  13. Ok I know for our meet up there will be a nail bar, hmmmm

    • T. Espi


      Yes! I’ve been to an event where there was a nail bar and one day they had complimentary manis but the next they taught you how to do your own nail art and such. It was a blast.

  14. It’s fabu!

  15. I am SO impatient I cannot paint my nails and wait for them to dry.. I just can’t it’s a shame. But that color is soooo cute. I want!

  17. Allison


    Oh, I will be stealing this look! Just be glad you live a thousand miles away, our I would take the bottle too, lol! But alas, it’s looking like I will be paying a visit to Ulta in the very, very near future! :-*

  18. Loving the title of this post! That song is addictive and so are these nails. I’ll have to try it soon.
