Inspired by Gold, Enamel and Diamonds

I have had this idea in my head for the last week and I am quite pleased with how it turned out! I was inspired by a bangle by one of my favourite Italian jewellery designers - Roberto Coin. This bangle is from the Bollicine Collection and has varying sizes of white enamel “bubbles’ surrounded by yellow gold creating an almost mathematical look. The diamonds also make this bracelet that much more amazing!

Creating this look was pretty simple, I started off with two coats of my favourite black polish, OPI – Black Onyx and then made random sized gold dots using Revlon – Gold Coin. I then followed with placing white dots inside the gold ones with China Glaze – Snow. I finished off with some crystals on my index finger to represent the diamonds. Oh, and forgive me for the slight nail wear and lack of tip-sealing.

Maybe next time I’ll use real diamonds on my nails ;-)

    1. Thank you! It actually wasn't too bad because of the dotting tool. I'd say maybe 45 minutes for both hands?
