James Allen Nail Jewels - Wedding Bliss Week 3

17 comments

Hi guys! You may have noticed there was no post yesterday, but that's because I had a lovely time waking up to a flooded basement due to a broken pipe. Fun times were had. Not really. But nevertheless, it's that time again for Wedding Bliss the weekly segment where I bring you nail art looks for brides to be... like me! This segment is part of the Preen.Me VIP program showcasing James Allen limited edition Nail Jewels, which are inspired by their most popular diamond rings!

I thought I would try more of a classic look for this weeks segment. To be fair, this is a design I have done a few tries before but it has always been with bright or neon colors. I couldn't shake the want to do another variation of it and so here we are.

I feel like I let my inner french blogger loose haha. As soon as I started this segment I went out to the craft store for props to pose with including lots of flowers! Admittedly though I'm a regular at the craft store regardless of this, it's to the point where some of the sales clerks know me by name. I blame the planner life and if you don't know what that means I have a hashtag for you... #planneraddict. Haha. 


Here's a breakdown of the things I used to create this look:
    - Base polish: OPI 'I Theodore You' 
    - American Craft: white acrylic paint
    - Winstonia: Detail Brush #0000
    - Seche Vite Topcoat

The nail jewel from James Allen adds the perfect touch to a simple french on the accent nail. There's really not a lot to this mani, but the end result can be really pretty. Especially if you decide to go with multi colors instead of just white.

What do you guys think about this mani? Too simple or could you see yourself rocking it for the big day?

  1. Hi! My daughter is getting married in September. I've been making her crazy with all the designs I send her. She wants something simple. I want to Bling it up. But. ..it is her day. I showed her something like this and she said it looks pretty but like the charm will catch on everything. When is your wedding?

    1. Hi there! The good thing about this design is the accent nail with the charm can totally not be used. She could do the same design on all her nails or have the accent nail maybe be a silver glitter polish. My wedding date is Feb 26 2016 :)

  5. I find it extremely pretty! And I hadn't realized the white roses were hand painted just until the end! I really thought it was stamping! You are so good.
    Hope your basement is dry by now!
