Opals. I did these using a tutorial by Kelly of basecoat-topcoat, who is one of my all-time favorite nail artists. She has an ongoing series of stone-inspired nails that are so beautiful, unusual, and realistic (you’ve probably seen this one around, because people are always fucking stealing it). I really wanted to try to recreate one of them, and I’m very happy with how they came out, although I do think hers were better.
