Christmas nail art and another KKCenterHk review

I was provided with this item in exchange for an honest review. The polishes used here were gifts or purchased myself.

 Happy Winter everyone!

KKCenterHk provided me with item N.NAIL Sweet Series White 2mm Circle Nail Art Decorations [NNAIL-DRN809] to review this time. These are some white, 2mm circular rhinestones, a first for me to try out. I decided these would be perfect to use in a Christmas manicure. I started with a base of Herome Minsk, 2 coats. My friend Narmai of gave me this one.

A perfect green for Christmas, don't you think? This is kind of sheer with 1 coat but looks fine with two. Next, I decided to just try out the rhinestones as accents on my accent nail. I used some red tape to create stripes. Then I filled in the outside areas using one coat of Pop Culture Cosmetics Candy Cane Lane. Then I just applied a light coat of top coat in the middle. The tricky part was picking up the individual rhinestones and getting them in place.. I'm sure this would have been easier with tweezers, but I just had to do things the hard way. I finished by clearing off with one coat of Jior Couture top coat. 

I wasn't feeling quite up to doing all of my nails this way, so I just applied 1 coat of Candy Cane Lane on the remaining nails. I really love how easy the rhinestones were to apply, and they make such a pretty little accent. According to the Web site, you get about 100 pieces of these rhinestones for $4.50. I've never gotten rhinestones before but just looking at eBay.. that is seriously expensive! I had no idea rhinestones usually run so cheap.. I'll have to get some more when I can :)

Here's a close up of the rhinestones.. and yes, candy cane glitter! 

I'm so sad that Christmas is almost here already.. it doesn't seem like I've even done very many Christmas manicures this year :( Oh well, more ideas for next year, I suppose!
