Nail Art // Smoosh Mani with Iridescent Metal Star Charm

* Contains Press Sample


Hello loves! Today I have a look to share with you that features a stunning metal charm that was sent to me by Born Pretty Store. :) I was feeling in the mood to do something simple that would show off how lovely the charm is so I decided to go with a smoosh mani (stamping marble) with some glitter. Check out more about it below the cut!


I started out with a white base of Sinful Colors Snow Me White and then tried to do a subtle smoosh with Illamasqua Venous, Sinful Colors Black on Black and OPI Spare Me A French Quarter? When that was dry I brushed on a layer of glitter from OPI Which is Witch? and then applied the charm. :)


Here's a shot of the charm I used. Look at all the colours that come through in those gems.... Ahhh! If you want you can pick this up for yourself from Born Pretty Store (available here) for $2.11, and remember to use my discount code for 10% off: ASZW10. :)



I'm not in love with this overall look, but I am in love with this charm. I feel like the next time I use it it will be over a darker base though so that the colours in the crystals can really pop to their full extent. :) I love the iridescent colour shift in the centre stones a whole lot!!

What kind of mani would you pair with this stone, if it was you? Do you think I should have used darker colours? I'd love to hear your thoughts!

Thanks for visiting! xx
