Review: Starfish Charms from LadyQueen

press_sample
I don’t often use charms on my nails, but I simply couldn’t resist these adorable little starfish charms from LadyQueen.com. Check out my review and and the mani I created with them after the break!

I’ve been wanting to get some charms like this for a long time, because I always love seeing them in water/mermaid style manis. I chose the gold ones and I absolutely love them!

Each starfish is 5mm across and they come in packs of 10. I was able to remove them and clean them when I took off the mani, so I can re-use them again.

For my mani, I started off by putting on a latex barrier and then sponging on China Glaze – I Soiree I Didn’t Do It to my pointer and pinky nails. It took about 3 passes to reach full opacity. I topped those nails off with Seche Vite – one coat was enough to smooth them out (since I am not a fan of textured nails). I painted two coats of KBShimmer – In Bare Form on my middle and ring finger nails. It’s a perfectly gorgeous nude holo that always reminds me of sandy beaches, so it was the perfect base for my gradient.

To create the gradient, I used a non-latex makeup sponge and applied Tropez Super Pearl – Aqua Pearl, Sinful Colors – Prized Plume and In Bare Form and sponged the colors onto my nails. It took 3 passes to get the opacity I wanted. I topcoated one nail at a time with Seche Vite and used a pair of tweezers to apply the gems, then did the same on the other nail.

Great post! I love nail charms and have way too many that I don’t know what to do with them all! This is a gorgeous design and you’ve used the charms well.

Wow, I really love the balance in this mani. Gorgeous. One question–what did you do with your thumb? I’m never quite sure what to do with my thumb on manis like this…<3
