With NYFW approaching, I HAD to get my nails did so it would last me the week. With my recently acquired rhinestones from the Garment District, I was ready to go!
Went to Sakura to see Yukari, and told her I wanted to do a rhinestone gradation using black, grey and clear stones.
But what I love about Yukari, is that she is so creative and artistic – she ended up doing her own interpretation of the design.
After a base coat of clear Calgel, she laid down the “adhesive” layer and then went to work with designing the stones. Instead of a gradation, she chose a more “random” arrangement, and I LOVED how it came out:

Yukari applied an extra thick coat of clear Calgel on top, to seal in all the rhinestones and make sure they didn’t pop off. Here’s the finished look:
