Nail Love: Deep Sea Blue

I'm in love with this gorgeous black and blue colour! This is one of the colours I bought from Nail Inc.'s Special Effects collection. It really makes me think of being underwater and looking up to see the rays of sunlight getting reflected off the fishes and eventually getting broken up as it goes into the depths of the ocean.

Heart Rhinestones

You can see here the look after putting on the layers. It starts out as a creamy black (step 1) and once you paint on several coats of the overcoat (step 2), it changes the colour and adds a new dimension to the nail. I love the holographic flakes in the overcoat! I finished the look by adding on a heart rhinestone (step 3) before the colour dries to help it stick and then sealed everything with a top coat. You can see on the edge of my thumb I have on a bit of Sephora by OPI's "Too Good for Him", a purple and blue glitter colour - I was experimenting with the look but then thought that the glitter would take away from the beautiful colour.

I hope you like this week's Nail Love! I'm really liking this rhinestone on the nail look, what do you guys think?
