"Tips Only" Challenge

I've been reading Polish Hoarder Disorder for a while now and every week she posts a new challenge. I love looking at the pictures nail polish fanatics send her for each challenge. For this one, I decided to take on the challenge and send her my entry.
You could only use the tips of your nails and had to leave the nail bed bare.
So here's what I came up with:

I spent alot of time on these and I have to admit, I got a little impatient towards the end. But I had fun doing them. Unfortunately, I only kept them like this for a little while. I have 2 exams coming up and they were waaaaay to distracting :)

What I used:

- Hema - 2 in 1 Ridge filler & base coat
- Rimmel - Hot Gossip
- Catrice - Hot or not?
- Catrice - Lucky in lilac
- Essence - My little orchid (LE from the Return to paradise collection)
- Catrice - It blue my mind!
- Catrice - Blue's brother
- Gosh - Ocean
- Essence - Back to paradise (LE from the Return to paradise collection)
- Catrice - Sold out forever
- Catrice - Don't feed the birds
- Catrice Nail Expert - Quick dry & high shine topcoat
- Rhinestone wheel (bought on Ebay)
- Damp cotton tip to pick up rhinestones

First I painted each tip in a colour that matched each rhinestone colour.

Then I applied my topcoat and added the rhinestones.

They were sooo sparkly and just couldn't stop looking at them :)

Hope you like them too and definitely check out Polish Hoarder Disorder for all the other entries, more challenges, swatches and reviews!
