New31DC: Day 28 - Inspired by Your Favorite Color

Hello dears!  Here is Day 28 of The Crumpet's Nail Tarts New 31 Day Challenge, a mani inspired by your favorite color.  Of course by now you are probably painfully aware that this is purple for me!  I decided to dig out the rhinestones I got last year from Cult Nails and do a purple gem design.

My base polish is 2 coats of Depend Nr. 354, a beautiful lilac color from their new Spring collection.  I am on a pastel kick lately, so I hope you aren't sick of seeing them yet!  354 (I hate that these don't have names!) actually has a hit of greenish shimmer in the bottle, but it doesn't show up on the nail.  Still a lovely shade though, and I didn't have anything in my collection similar!

I added the rhinestones on to my nails after I did my 2nd coat of polish while it was still tacky.  I put a dark purple on the center of each nail at the cuticle, and then on my ring finger I did a harlequin pattern with dark purple and light purple.  I did put a layer of top coat over everything when I was done.

Let's see what everyone else did for today!


  1. Very cute mani! I love the bling!

  2. This is fab, love the placement :)

  3. Wow! I love the rhinestones. Fabulous job!

  4. OMG!!! This is so pretty. Love the color and design. I love the studs that you placed on top for it looks so elegant and classy. Love it!

  5. I love the base color!! Great for winter/spring!!
