A Week Of Old Favorites: Day 4~ Diamond Vinyls

For Day 4 I chose to recreate a design using a glitter polish and some diamond shaped nail vinyls.

Diamond Vinyl Design

I decided that I had enough of hand painted designs for now and decided to recreate this diamond look with nail vinyls today.  The original from January of 2016 was done using mainstream polishes like OPI, and the recreation was done using some from my current collection of Indie polishes.

I used my go to base coat KBShimmer-Fillin Groovy, 2 coats of Alter Ego-Clever Girl and a Superchic Lacquer Marvel Macro Topcoat and let it dry for 30 minutes.  Then I applied the diamond vinyls (unsure where I purchased these ones as they are not labelled), protected my cuticles with liquid latex and sponged KBShimmer-Bling In The New Year over the vinyls.  Removed the vinyls and latex, cleaned up and added another coat of Superchic topcoat.

I used to use a lot of vinyls for designs, but now I much prefer stamping especially for a design like this.  It takes less work and less time to simply paint the nail with the glitter and stamp a diamond pattern over top.  It was fun to play with vinyls again, but they are not my go to for this type of look anymore.
