Etsy iPhone Case Inspired


One of my favourite places to find inspiration is Etsy. I can easily whittle away several hours just browsing the beautiful creations. Today I have a manicure that was inspired by the cell phone cases from the Etsy store TheArtCity. I love their translucent studded iPhone cases. As soon as I saw them I knew I had to recreate one on my nails. Here's my interpretation!

I started with four coats of Barielle Barely There. I love this peachy/pinky nude color, it's one of my favorite subtle nude colors I own. I think the sort of squishy finish it has is a good representation of the background of the iPhone cases. Once that was dry I took a small nail art brush and framed my ring finger with China Glaze Turned Up Turquoise. I then added the studs with just a bit of top coat, and then put a really thick coat of Seche Vite over the whole thing so the studs would have a bit more lasting power.

This is one of my favorite manicures I've ever done. I hope you enjoy it!

Thanks for reading!
