Weekly Mani: Stamped and Jeweled French Manicure

Hello dear readers,

This weeks mani is a simple french that I stamped and added some Swarovski crystals and metal studs, because I couldn’t help myself :D. I also did a video showing, start to finish, how to do this mani but my computer keeps crashing while I try to edit and process it so when I get that issue worked out I’ll post the video. Until then here’s a pic:

I used:
TruGel Marshmallow
Gelish Light Elegant
Stamping polish- China Glaze Poetic
Stamping plate- Dashica Big SdP A
stamped jeweled french

    I have a question… how do you get the caviar beads to stay on for the duration of your mani? I stick them on with Structure, cover them in a layer of Top It Off, but within a couple days they either fall off or… seem to disintegrate. I have no idea how to keep caviar beads looking good!

      Hi Ann…I didn’t use caviar bead, I use tiny japanese metal studs. I use base gel as the “super glue” to place them into, cure to lock in place and then 1-2 coats of top coat. I have yet to find any caviar beads that will hold their color in gel. I have links to the tiny studs in my Nail Resources list.

        OOOOHHH!!! Japanese nail bling is really the best stuff. I’m going to have to check those out. Thanks!!
