Nail Art: Maroon Embellished Claws

Chipped nails are a no go, I was just about to paint these babies! I sat on my bed, sighing and looked my one chipped index nail... How can I work my way around this, not have the standard curved nail and still use one of my new polishes...

Before and after shots: It's like a new person (set of nails)!

Essense came out with their new Colour and Go nail polish range and of course, I had to buy a few... 
Finally my change to try them out!

Products used:
Essence's Colour & Go 'Do you speak love?'
Microbeads off eBay!


Step 1:
I filed each one of them into a 'claw', 'v' form.
It looked pretty ugly when it was done, but I carried on and hoped for the best.

Step 2:
Painting two layers of Essence's Colour & Go 'Do you speak love?' on each nail:
Actually looks pretty cute...

Step 3:
And time to coat with a thick clear coat and embellish! 
 I went with three beads down the center from the bottom!

Voila!
It's true colour during daytime.... I love it!

I think this is the sweetest look - especially with the whole bling along the middle.
This stayed on for four days! Pretty awesome!
