Oz: The Great and Powerful Inspired Nails; Glinda (Born Pretty Store review, as well :) )

I told you that I wasn’t done doing Oz inspired nails! Today’s post includes Glinda inspired nails and a review of Born Pretty Store’s Colourful Crystal Rhinestones.

First up, let’s talk about my Glinda nails :)


Once I saw Oz, I knew I needed to replicate Glinda’s crown. Unfortunately, I knew the plastic rhinestones I already had wouldn’t do, but then Born Pretty asked if I would like to do a review for them, so I chose their crystal rhinestones.


I used 3 coats of OPI – I Theodora You, then created a glitter gradient on all of my nails (except my ring fingers) using e.l.f. – Golden Goddess. On my ring fingers, I created a small star-like crown using Wet n Wild – Goldmine. Then I simply placed a crystal rhinestone in the center. Topcoat and done!


And now for the review!

As I previously mentioned, Born Pretty Store sent me  their ‘144 pcs Bornpretty Colorful Crystal Rhinestones SS10 Acrylic UV Nail Art’ for a review.


I chose these crystal rhinestones to review because I had never tried crystal rhinestones; only plastic.

As you can see, they glisten many different colours in the sun…


… they also show off all of their colours in the shade as well!


While I love how colourful they are, my absolute favourite thing about these rhinestones is that they don’t cloud like plastic ones do:

Before top coat…


Once top coat is applied…

Note how the plastic rhinestone (on top) clouds, while the crystal one doesn’t. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that!

I’ve never really used that many rhinestones in my nail art before, but I can sense that I’ll be using rhinestones a lot more now!
