I wanted to change things a little bit, and look at jewels in a different realm. How about jeweled manicures, from gold infused polish to crushed diamonds, the world’s most expensive manicure can set you back $250,000, just a LITTLE over the top. Kelly Osbourne got a lot of heat for it when she had black diamonds incrusted in her nails for the 2012 Emmy’s, and on Racked you can see more of these extravagant gemstone manicures.
Granted that any mani will not last over two weeks, I figured gemstones aren’t the most practical of ideas, but surely there had to be a DIY alternative to bring the elegance, style, and sparkle inspired by these mega manis.
Dior, launched Diorific Jewel Manicure Duo, a gold nail polish that comes with pearls you sprinkle over your nails that fall with the caviar trend.
But I have to admit, Essie rules on Mani inspiration for me. Lately their collections have been inspired by metallics, jewel tones, and even their stick ons are great options for on-the-go manis that NEED to look great, and for me that is ALWAYS. Take a look and let me know what you think.
