Step-by-Step Nail Art Thursday - Living in Colour China Glaze Manicure

Nothing to Disclose

Hello lovely readers!  Today I am bringing back Step-by-Step Nail Art Thursday featuring polishes from China Glaze

China Glaze is currently hosting the Live in Colour sweepstakes on Instagram, which inspired me to do an all China Glaze polishes manicure. Below, I break down the simple steps and products needed to achieve this look,

I started by applying 2 coats of Too Yatch to Handle on my index and middle fingers. I used 3 thin coats of Let's Dew It on my ring finger and 1 coat of Sleeping Under the Stars on my pinky.  Let's Dew It  and Sleeping Under the Stars are from the The Great Outdoors collection which I reviewed here

Water Decals Nail Accents
For the nail art, I applied water decals over Too Yatch to Handle on my index and middle fingers. The water decal are from the Born Pretty Store (you can use my code LATQX31 for a 10% discount).

I finished off by apply a quick dry, glossy top coat (Seche Vite) and a rhinestone on my pinky.

And there you have it!  I hope you like this tutorial and do not forget to visit my Instagram here page for more nail art ideas.

  1. Oh my goodness, these are absolutely stunning!! I've been using my decals over a white base, but this is making me want to try different colored bases!

  2. Gorgeous! I especially love that China Glaze! <3

  3. Too Yacht is one of my favorites from China Glaze and I love the water slide pairing!!! <3

  4. Ohhhh, fun! The colors are stunning and your mani is flawless, as always! I love that water decal! I just placed my first order with the Born Pretty Store. Question for you....about how long does it take you to get your order? I placed mine about 3 weeks ago and haven't heard anything yet.

    1. They can take over 4 weeks to arrive, unfortunately. They know have several listed on Amazon, however, and those arrive pretty fast.

  5. Oh wow - such cool water decals!! You applied them beautifully :)

  6. That is a pretty mani and I love those decals!

  7. This is a beautiful manicure. I'm not normally a fan of water decals, but you make them look good! That CG is freaking gorgeous too!

  8. I love the accent nails...and the cream...and the glitter.

    Ok I just love it all.
