As some of you might have heard already Cult Nails has added a Nail Art Supplies line!!! I have had the honor to review some of these products and have been holding on to my posts/manicures until the gemstones were actually available.
This way, should you say: “Wow Marta, these gemstones are beautiful, where can I get them?!?!?”
I would be able to answer: “Just follow this link HERE to get the Cult Nails Bronze Nail Rhinestones”
This set of approximately 750 pieces, of four varying sizes, retails for $3.00 on the Cult Nails website!

I have two looks I would like to share with you today:
First up is two coats of Cult Nails In a Trance with three (of the four different sizes) of Cult Nails Bronze Nail Rhinestones.
These rhinestones are an intensely shiny copper/bronze; they are so shiny in fact that they were tricky to photograph because the light they cast turned white-ish in the photos. They are not translucent and have a metallic feel rather than a gemstone look.
What I like about these rhinestones is that their base (the flat part of the rhinestone) is black. This way, you can easily pick up the rhinestones (right side up) from the container
My second look is a little bit ‘softer’ :
This is two coats of Cult Nails Cruisin’ Nude with three Cult Nails Bronze Nail Rhinestones. I only ‘dressed up’ my accent nail, but you could also do this pattern on all of your nails for some extra bling
For those of you who haven’t played with Rhinestones yet, here is a quick HOW TO:
* Wait for the base color to dry completely.
* With a dotting tool (you could also use a toothpick or orange stick) apply a fast-drying topcoat to the spots on the nail where you want to place the rhinestones.
* You have to work fast and it helps to work one nail at a time.
* It might also be helpful to lay the gemstones out on the table (right side up) in front of you so that you are not ‘fishing’ for them from the rhinestone wheel/container while your topcoat is drying
* Dip the dotting tool into the topcoat and use the wet/sticky dotting tool to pick up the rhinestones, place them onto the nail and firmly press them down onto the nail.
* Cover the whole nail with topcoat.
NOTE: I generally wear my manicures for 3-4 days and have found that topcoat holds sufficiently well enough for this duration. Should you want a ‘firmer’ grip you could use nail glue (generally sold for fake-nails). This holds the gemstones in place longer/better, but removal of the gemstones is much trickier and may require acetone.
Asside from the mega shiny metallic surfaces of these beauties, I really like the bronze color of them. Cult Nails always finds a way to add class to the items they feature. Don’t miss out, get your Bronze Nail Rinestones HERE!
