Inspired by Algae Veronica!

This past weekend I finally decided I wanted to recreate an awesome manicure that I saw a long time ago on tumblr by Algae Veronica at lotsafingerpaints. Her designs are amazing and I'd honestly love to recreate ALL of them, but I started with this one. I didn't mimick exactly what she did, but mine matches hers for the most part.

Isn't it cute?! I was in love with this manicure!

Here are the polishes I used: Milani White on the Spot, Color Clup Poptastic, an old Sally Hansen white striper polish that I've had for ages (it came in a french manicure kit), and a black striper polish that I got at the Dollar Tree!

The two large rhinestones are from these rhinestone sheets from Avon. You can purchase them on my site here.

And the smaller rhinestones are from this wheel that I got from Sally's!

Here is the picture of Algae Veronica's design that I used as inspiration:
Beautiful right?! Her's is like 100 times better! I love how she did rhinestones on each nail...I didn't have the patience for that lol!

This manicure was pretty simple for the most part! My only problem was keeping a steady hand when it came to doing my right hand.

Go like Algae Veronica on Facebook and watch some of her awesome nail tutorials on YouTube!! She is really talented and I love how she uses such bright and fun colors in all of her designs!
