Born Pretty Store: Black Rhinestones

**press sample**

Two posts in one day? Crazy right? I can't wait to share the rest of my Born Pretty Store goodies with you, so you're getting more than one post today. :) 

This post is devoted to 1.5 mm rhinestones just like the previous post, but the color option is #12 from the listing

For this mani I used 2 coats of Zoya Dove. When the 2nd coat was still tacky I applied the rhinestones. Normally you would use clear polish to put these down, but if my base color is still tacky enough I like to use it to avoid gooping things up too much. Once they were placed I sealed it all in with 1 coat of Glossy Glam. 

The listing on Born Pretty has these under 1.5mm rhinestones, but to me they are more like studs. In my mind a rhinestone has facets, these are round like half beads or studs. Either way they're really pretty, I just don't totally agree with the description. Here's a macro of them up close so you can see. 

I was really happy with how these turned out, even though they weren't exactly what I was expecting. I could see using these in some really fun manis as eyes or noses too! OH SNOWMEN! A few months too late... (even though it's snowing here in Missouri today) There's always next winter. Or maybe Christmas in July? Ha!
