Nail Tutorial: A Bejeweled Christmas

Hello guys! Today, I am leveling up my nail art tutorials. Well, it's not so much of a level up because as you can see, the design is pretty simple but the whole thing is a notch above the usual nail art where I use regular polish. I hope you get what I mean! :D

Before the tutorial, I wanna share this cool find. It's a 63php nail art set for children. It has a bevy of studs, a small bottle of glue, an applicator/remover, and a whimsical set of fake nails. All for only 63php. How cool is that?

Strangely, I got this in Fully Booked. Definitely not the ideal place to find beauty- related stuff!

Anyway, here are the contents. Everything is so cute!

Applicator/Stud Remover

A closer look at the studs: I find that the crystal studs are more useful than some of the cartoon cut-outs as I find the latter too flat for my semi- curved nail beds-I am having a hard time making them stay put. When I finally have a lot of time on my hands, I will work them.

 Here are the fake nails: I'm too old for them already. :p And if I am going to be nitpicky, these nails look totally fake!

To sum it up, this is a good buy because I only cared for the studs, glue, and applicator. While some of the contents are pretty useless to me, it still ain't bad for 63php!

Revlon Top Coat (I used it as my base coat as well)
Estee Lauder Pure Color Nail Polish in Beautiful Liar (This is a new product from Estee Lauder, and expect it on the counters this February!)

 STEP 1: Paint your digits. Make sure that the surface is smooth. Allow to dry before proceeding with the tutorial.

STEP 2: Grab the mini glue from the nail art set and apply small drops on your nail bed. Make sure you already know where you'll put the studs!

STEP 3: Using the smallest tip of the applicator, pick up some studs and carefully place them on top of the glue. Push the studs carefully in place using the same tip of the applicator. Using the biggest tip of the applicator, gently press the studs on your nail bed for a few seconds to make them stick properly.

STEP 4: Apply top coat on your nails and on top of the studs. I've noticed that the glue is not quite industrious, as it is meant for the soft and sensitive nail beds of children. Sealing the studs with a top coat will help them stay put longer. After 2 minutes, apply a quick dry solution to speed up the drying time of your polish.

 The result

 Allow me to praise my own work. I think this nail art is discreet yet catchy, and fabulous yet never overwhelming! It's definitely something that you can wear in any occasion!

So there goes my first edition of my Nail Art Tutorials for Christmas. I'd also like to say that this is a cheaper and more accessible alternative to Ciate's Caviar polishes.

Let me know how you like this tutorial! :D
