One of the thoughts that continually possesses me is the idea of creating the look of jewelry for my nails. Today's manicure is my interpretation of a fluorite crystal strand. I've seen tiny faceted beads arranged in color formation from green to purple. Such delicate and eye catching necklaces!
I began with Earthy Angel as the base shade. With a size 0 sable brush, I drew an outline for the funky French with Voodoo You Do. I carefully painted the tips with vertical brushstrokes to best show the pearl finish. Using an Art Club striper in Limeade, I formed two thin lines at the border of the beige and green polishes.
I added a square crystal to the center of each stripe in alternating purple and green tones. Filling in the remainder of the line with emerald, peridot, purple, pink and lavender jewels and pearls, I arranged the greens and purples to flow into each other.

Earthy Angel applied beautifully. Though I needed three coats for full opacity, the color glided on with professional ease. I'm impressed with the formula of the cremes in back to Boho. I wore Earthy Angel for a day without ornamentation and I didn't even need to do clean up before heading out the door. Perfect!
I hope you enjoyed today's bejeweled look. Have any of you worn fluorite? Such a pretty stone!
