ABC Challenge: Cross

It's that time again already! Another day of the ABC Challenge! Today is letter 'C', and I did a mixed mani with a cross accent nail. I really had a hard time deciding a theme to do...there are so many cool mani's that start with a 'C'. Circles, clouds, cupcakes....just to name a few.

I really liked how this turned out, but next time I think I will use caviar beads for the cross instead of rhinestones so that I have room to make some little flourishes at the ends.







The polishes that I used were:
Zoya Bevin
Picture Polish Heavy Metal

    1. Thanks! :) I think the rhinestones just look a bit clunkier than I would have liked.

  8. I totally wanted to do a cross accent too, but with nude and black!! I decided against it though because the blue stained fingers that didn't look stained without any polish definitely looked stained against my nude polish!! I love the color combo on this, very awesome!!

    1. Ooohhh...that sounds pretty, too! You should still do it sometime when the staining fades. Polish addict problems! lol.

  9. Black rhinestones are beautiful! I definitely add to buy them, they add a certain "je ne sais pas quoi" to all manicures. :)
